  • upndownick Nov 23, 2008

    I know that to remove the panel one musttake out screws and pop off the panel.I did not need to pay ten dollars for that information!!!

    I need to know WHERE the screws are located, and are any hidden?
    Also I need advice on how to replace the window motor regulator, and how to make any adjustments if needed.

    Remember this is for a 1999 cadillac sts passenger window.

    Thanks,
    Nick

These are not for your model, but they still are basically the same for almost all cars. If you are not sure or do not feel ok doing it yourself, then get a professional mechanic to do it for you.

How to remove the door panel. I just did this on my 98 Seville SLS. This shoud work on the 99 as well as the Eldorado. Tools - strong, medium flathead screwdriver for prying; #2 phillips; flashlight(optional) 1) Lower the window. 2) Remove the phillips screw on the lower left of door (near the bottom). 3) Pry out the power window control assembly - use a flathead and pry from the front. Be carefull, it will come out, but remove it slowly - I had to stick the screw driver down about 3/4 inch to release the metal clip. There are two metal clips - one in front the other in back. 4) Disconnect the electrical connector to the power window controll assembly. 5) OK, there is the handle you use to pull the door closed - behind that pannel is a flap covered with leather - fold it UP - it doesnt look like a flap, because it's covered - fold it up, and you will see 2 phillips screws - remove them. 6) Now, there is the interior door handle(the handle used to OPEN the door) - in the back of the handle well there is a dark piece of flat plastic - approx 2" x 3" - it comes out to expose the last screw - use the flathead - push in on the front side, then pry it towards the rear and then out. Push, pry, out. 7) Remove the last screw - it should be a phillips, identical to the two from the other handle. 8) Now it's like any other door panel - begin popping the fasteners from the door panel off first from the bottom, and then the sides. Use your hands to do this - dont scratch that paint. It requires some force - if you break a fastner, dont worry, they are standard GM fastners and are cheap to replace. 9) Raise the door panel above the lock, and the door panel should be physically free. 10) There are two more electrical connectors now exposed - disconnect them, and your door panel is off. To reinstall, it is essentially the reverse - the most trouble I had was lining up those plastic tabs. Make sure all 4 screws are in. The power window control goes back in much easier than it came out
After you get the panel off the window motor is held on by 3 small bolts, there may be dipples in the door sheet metal to drill out for access to the bolts, they will be 8mm head size, that is the most common.

PLEASE RARE THIS SOLUTION

Where is the driver side blend door actuator on a 98 Seville STS?


I believe that the right side has a blend door actuator, and the left side or driver side just gets air from the regular flow from the programmer and vacuum motors.

Electric Window not working. Need to know how to remove front door panels. Passenger door window completely down, but can hear lift motor running.


Sounds like you have a problem with your window regulator. you need to unbolt the motor from the panel and take window off the regulator. I also have a 99 intrigue and my drivers side window did the same thing. The wire cords on the regulator where frayed and we replaced it. Found a new one of Autopartswarehouse.com for about $42 dollars with the motor.

Need diagram on how to R&R rear door panel 2002 Cadillac Seville


You can either go to google ebooks and find a free repair manual for your car, or go to autozone.com and register for free online repair manual.

You will need to remove all screws, then remove window and lock controls, then take large flat-tipped screwdriver and gently pry next to all the plastic studs that hold on panel to door. Once all panel is pried up and loose, just pull straight up and lift off. Then remove plastic without ripping the middle, (You can stick back on later) then you will have access to window motor. It is a 12 volt motor.

Replacing 99 Accord window regulator


Pull off door panel speaker and switches. lower the window to where you see the two or four 10millimeter that connect scissor mechanism to the window. Prop window all the way up and put a door stopper to prevent the window from falling down. Unbolt window motor, unplug window motor, and unbolt eveything else in the door. Pull it all down and out through the bottom largest whole, lay flat on ground the entire indoor mechanism, out where you can see it on the floor. Take a pic with camera, and proceed to swapping regulator, intallation is same as removal. Good Luck
