You need to remove the door handle/window winder and sometimes the door lock button. Then the rest of the door panel is held on by expanding nylon pins which pop out wit the insertion of some kind of wedge - like a screwdriver -protected to keep the paint from scraching, or a sharp wood dowel.
It's usually the window winder that presents the problem . Remove all visable retaining screws ie; Grab handle , Internal door opening lever , Button on top of panel (if applicable ) etc . The majority panel are a pop snap on type . Remove the winder lever withthe aid of a shoe lace or thin piece of cloth material, The winder is retained by a horse-shoe shaped spring clip. .... Pull the shoe-lace/ material in the opposite direction of the winder retainer clip and it will easily come off, but it is a spring clip and may fly off so be careful. Good luck
There is a wire clip located between the winder handle and the plastic cup/bushing that protects the door panel from the rotational friction of the winder handle. The clip will usually snag and come off if you take a rag and run it around between the winder handle and the plastic cup--kind of like flossing in between teeth. When you are ready to put the handle back on the door, just put the wire clip back into the grooves on the winder handle & simply push the handle back onto the shaft.
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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal
(can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to
access everything inside the door
If you cannot Locate any Screws, First try looking for Screw Hole Covers or Plugs. If None, Just start at the Bottom and Pull. You may need to go to your Auto Parts Store and Purchase a Package of Door Panel Fasteners for the Panel. Usually you will Break 3 or 4 of these During Removal and Install. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
in the door handle you will see some plastic caps
remove these you will then find some phillips screwsremove them the handle will com off
same with the window winder handle
then check for other screws then pull door card off. but gently bottem out & top up
the door inside panel is screwed on in 3 or 4 places. look on the underside of the panel for a screw or two, and look for a screw cover underneath where the inner door handle is. pop the window switch assembly out of the door gently and unplug the wiring harness from it. it is possible to repair the window winder assembly inside the door, but its too hard a process for me to explain. if u can get the door panel off, but cant figgure out how to repair the winder assembly, then buy a new window winder assembly for around $120, to replace and not repair is the standard practice anyway, cause the winders are a pain to repair, and the repair is usually only temporary, they are technically non repairable, the repair is more like a mcguyver move.
hi there, it will be one of two ways, either theres a little horse shoe shaped clip that sits inbetween the winder and the door panel, failing that then the middle of the winder should flick out and there will be a screw that screws through the winder and into the panel, hope this helps
