SOURCE: Need to remove the right front door panel of a 2007 RAV 4

You'll need to 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.

SOURCE: driver door panel removal and re-connect door pull

You most likley have a damaged inside door handle. To remove the door panel, you must first remove the handle bezel. The trim piece around the handle. It is held in place by 4 retainer tabs, take a small flat screw driver, insert it between the bezel and handle. Gently pry away from the handle. If you look in the crack around the handle you will see the tabs. When you get that off, remove the switch assembly by prying up on it gently, unplug the wiring. There are 2 screws in the door panel where you pull the door shut, remove those also. Start at the bottom front of the door panel, pull outward firmly, but not violent. The retainers will come out, you will most likley break some, this is common. The inside handle is about $45 from your dealer. If it is the handle it is held in with 1 rivit, drill it out with a 3/16 drill. Replace the handle, reassemble. Good Luck.

SOURCE: I need to replace the 99 buick century side mirror

There is a small plastic piece (triangular shape) at the top of the door panel, opposite of the mirror. It is held in place by a plastic clip. You can gently pop that out, with a flat blade screwdriver or something similar. That will expose 3 bolts with nuts on them. On my 2000 Century, they are 10 mm. Take off those three nuts, and the mirror will come off.

Remove door panel on 2008 Chrysler Sebring to replace window switch

This pic is of a door panel retainer that hold the panel onto the inner door frame. They are typically placed on the sides and bottom of the door panel. The top of the door panel slides downward into a channel on the top of the door frame.
The first step is to locate all screws on the door panel and remove them. Usually the screws are in the door handle to hold the handle in place. Look for other locations for screws. SOmetimes the screws have button covers that hide the screw head.
After all screws are out , take a wide blade screw driver or you can purchase a tool for door panel removal, and insert the screw driver inbetween the panel and the door, and pry these fasteners out all around the panel. Once the panel is free on the side and bottom, lift up on the panel to disengage it from the top channel. Be careful of the wiring behind the panel. You may have to unplug the wire connectors to remove the panel further.
These panel fasteners become brittle and may break when they are popped out. They are avaiable at auto parts stores. Just take one with you to match up, since there are several differnt sizes.

Can't get door open, so can't remove panel to fix door open prob

These door panels are held in place to the interior door frame with push-in fasteners which are located around the side and bottom perimeter of the panel. These fasteners are popped out by placing a screw driver or other flat tool between the panel and the door frame. Usually there are screws and/or small bolts which hold the arm rest and door handle portion of the door panel. You need to locate any of these first and remove them. some screws/bolt heads may be hidden by small plastic caps which cover the heads. In some models, there is a piece of molding which is snapped in around the handle or on top of the arm rest. Once the perimeter fasteners are loose and all screws are removed, the panel is lifted up to disengage it from the bottom window frame. Be careful not to move the panel too far away from the door frame until you disconnect all wiring connections on the back side. Those nylon buttons that hold the panel in place sometimes break off when you remove them. They are replaceable(auto parts store).

I need to remove drivers side door panel to replace the regulator on a 2001 deville

I just removed the passenger side door panel with two long screw drivers, a putty knife and an eight mm socket on a quarter inch drive ratchet. First of all I did NOT have to remove any trim or the door handle which stays attatched to the panel. I use the putty knife to protect the paint from being scratched by the screw drivers. Insert the putty knife, ( started at the bottom) outer edge. Next insert the screw driver on top of the putty knife and pry a little to create a gap. Now insert the other screw driver near the first one and pry. It will take some effort to pop the plastic fastener but that is what holds the panel on and there are several of them so just work your way around. I stuck a 2X4 mid way between the panel and door so I could see and gain access to the two 8 mm nuts holding the arm rest secure. I removed these screws from inside or inbetween the door and panel so no damage or removing the arm rest from the dor panel. Use a flash light to spot the nuts.After they are removed and all the plastic fasteners are pried out ( there was a stubborn one for me on top near the door lock) then pull UP on the panel to clear the window sill. Pull up and out at the same time and it should come out. Be patient because they are fairly secure and there are several of them.

Driver side window off track

There is what is called birds beeks that hold the door panel to the door, they have a tool to pop them out at any auto parts store. You can use a screwdriver but to avoid damage to the panel its best to use the tool, there not that expensive.

I need to remove the driver side rear door panel. How do I do it

There should be screws near the bottom of the door, and maybe the hand hold and or door release handle cavity. Look for removable caps and such as well. Also look in the bottom of the door pull.

Once all screws have been removed, see if lift and pull works. Depending on when GM changed over the holding method, this is the first to try.
If that doesn't work, then get a screw driver and wedge between the panel and the door at the bottom corner and pop the panel up.

You may need to replace the pegs before replacing the panel back onto the door.
