Question about Saturn SL2
Well, first you have to remove the outside door panel. To do this remove the door handle on the out side. Lift up the handle and look underneath. You will see 2 little round pins sticking in the handle. Take a small punch and push them up. The handle slides to one side and then off.
Next you need a torx wrench to remove the 10 panel bolts located inside the door frame. I think it is a 40 torx.
Once they are removed you can lift up on the door panel and remove. You can't get access anyother way. Inside door cover can only be remove by removing the outside panel and
taking the clips off. So, once you have the outter door panel off you will the workings. You will need a flash light. Check the throw arm that attaches the locking switch on the lock to the door latch assembly. More then likly that is all that came loose. If that is ok then you need to replace the door catch assembly. Not an easy project. If you can do it the part is about $50 from the dealer. You will need to remove the 3 torx screws attaching the assembly to the inside door frame. Disconnect all the clips that attach the arms. Installation is the reverse. NOT AN EASY JOB TO DO. Plan on a whole day to figure all this out.
