You have totake the door panel off to get to the wiring harness. door panel should be held by plastic clips so all you have to do is grab a corner and give a nice tug. First check to make sure there are no screws in it that I may have missed. Remove the clips from the door with a fork and put them in the panel and replace the panel by using a small tap.

1997 buick lasabre. How do you remove the front left door panal. The window does not work. When I press the switch I can here it click

Make sure the switch itself isn't bad. Pull the power window control assembly. I think there is a clip in one end that you push and the panel pops out. The switches are interchangeable so just swap one of the GOOD ones for the driver's switch and see what happens.
If you have to remove the panel, go to O'Reilly's or AutoZone and get a door panel removal tool. This will pop the plastic clips around the door panel. You may break a few but replacements are at the Auto store also. If I remember right, there are 2 large screws that secure the armrest to the door. Might be hidden under a plastic trim plate. BE CAREFUL plastic breaks. Good Luck

I need to print out a discription of how to replace a door handle

First, remove the window switch/door lock switches from the door panel, these are usually just clipped in, sometimes held in by a screw. Then, remove the outer cover for the interior door handle. This has one screw in it that you should be able to see (or see the little panel covering it which needs to be popped off first- be careful not to break it!). The plastic piece can then be slid slightly forward and popped out. Check to see if you have a speaker in your door. If so, you may have to pop off the plastic panel covering it, and unscrew the speaker, then disconnect the electrical connectors and take it out of the way. There should be two screws, if memory serves, underneath the grab handle of the door, and then just check the perimeter of the door panel to make sure there are no other existing screws in it. After all of the screws have been removed, you can then begin at the bottom and (carefully) pop the door panel out of its clips. Once the bottom and sides are popped out, pull up slightly to pull the entire panel up and off of the window sill. Now you can get to the actual door handle. Unbolt it, and disconnect the little clip/clips behind it which hold the metal bars in place. These bars are what pushes and pulls on the actual latch and lock assembly. Be sure not to break the clips! You may need to reuse them. The new handle can then be clipped back in, and then bolted back up. Important: Test out the function of the new handle before reinstalling the door panel and all of the accessories. If you have a problem, it will be much easier to fix or troubleshoot with the door panel already off! Make sure you dont lock yourself out of the car, in case the door handle fails. Once satisfied that the handle is working properly, install the door panel by hanging it on the window sill first, then lining up the clips and snapping them back in, this usually works best with a little smack of the palm against the door panel. If a clip will not go in, check to make sure it is properly installed and lined up. Once the door panel is fully lined up, screw in the two screws located underneath the arm rest/grab handle, and any other screws you may have removed. Install the speaker (if youve removed it) along with its plastic cover. Pop in the plastic covering for the interior door handle, and screw that in as well. Pop the plastic covering back on that. Now, reconnect and pop the window switch/door lock switches back in, and you should be good to go!

My driver side mirror broke off on 1999 olds silhouette can't get door panel off found 2 bolts anything else or just force loose?

If you removed the 2 bolts near the handle (1 you reach by removing the lock & pwr windows control panel by prying it up, it will pop loose) there are plastic bolts/clips that press in through openings around the edge of the door panel. Just pry out slowly and they should pop out. Work your way around the door. It should slide off over the release handle which you may want to pull outward so it slides over it easier. I just did this 2 days ago to replace my passenger mirror.
