How do you take te rear inside left door panel off to work on speaker


Impossible to answer without knowing the exact model, but generally you need to know that these panels are held in place by plastic "pins" (I don't know the correct term) that fit into holes in the door chassis You just essentially get started at one point and keep moving. It is imperative, though, that if anything will prohibit the panel from pulling away completely, you must make certain you've removed it first - like an ashtray or an armrest, etc. Otherwise, you'll be left with an almost removed door panel hanging by whatever it is preventing it from freeing up. Take your time on this and be very gentle, lest you break one or more of the pins.

Door panel removal 1999 silverado


The door panels are held on with plastic clips. Chances are a few of the clips will break, but they are not expensive or hard to replace. You can buy a tool from one of your local parts store that slides under the head of the retainer and helps to remove it, but many people do not use them. There are several retainers around the edge of the panel.

Do i have to remove the door panel to take off door speaker covers? Speaker covers are starting to rust and want to remove all 4 speaker covers on door just to paint them. Trying to remopve without...


I believe that your speaker covers are clipped in through the back of the panel and won't come out through the front without breaking some of the clips. The proper way would be to remove the door panels and remove the covers out the back of the panel.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can remove the panel

Driver side door mechanism


Can you open the door with the inside handle? If you can, the problem is probably a broken plastic fitting inside between the outside handle and the door latch. There are door panel removal tools available at your local parts store that look like short handled wide bladed pry bars. You could get by with a good stiff putty knife if needed. Take off the arm rest, window crank, and speaker grill if you have aftermarket speakers. Slide the door panel removal tool under the edge of the door panel and CAREFULLY pop the clips loose from the door frame. You could always leave the window open and do the "Dukes of Hazard" thing, but then you would have to change the paint scheme.

I need to know how to get to the door speakers before i break anything. i dont know if you can take the speaker cover off or if yoy have to take off the door panel.


If you want to replace the speakers, you will have to remove the door panel. Removing the cover will only allow you to clean the cover or remove any foreign matter from the speaker cone.

Side View Electric mirror can't adjust up enough for my height


You can manually push the mirror left or righ or up and down. It just ratchets on the plastic screw adjusters. It won't do any damage.
If you have floding mirros, make sure they are locked into position.

Changing door speakers


The clip behind the handle requires a specialty tool available at any autoparts store. it is shaped like a U, but has little tabs on it to catch the ears of the clip.
After removing the clip, remove the plastic trim by the mirror... and a little trapdoor inside the door handle cup will have a screw in it.
The rest are just push-clips, so start at the bottom, and pull toward you... working your way around the door.

The tool looks like this...
