There is a horseshoe shaped clip that is on the back of the window crank handle.  There is a special tool you can buy to slide behind it and remove it or you can pry out gently on and using a small screwdriver or pick you can pop the clip off.  You may need a flashlight to see it but it is quite simple to remove.  Turn the handle until you can see the open side and just push on it with the screwdriver and it will pop off - watch for it as it is easy to loose.  To put it back on put the clip on the handle first then just push it on the shaft.  If you do happen to lose it you can buy them at NAPA

How can i remove door skin on '97 dodge caravan mini van to repair power window?


you don't remove the door skin, you remove the interior door panel. Find and remove all screws in door panel, they will be located under panel, behind interior door handle, armrest area, you might have to remove plastic plugs that have screws behind them. Panel will have plastic clips all around perimeter, panel will pull towards you from edges to release these clips, lift panel up and it will come off. You will have to disconnect any wiring. now you can get into the door to get to window regulator and motor.

2002 GMC Savana van inner door latch broken


You can pick up the handle from your local GMC dealer. I paid roughly $90 for both (a bit high...but money well spent!) As noted, yes; you do have to remove the interior door panel. From there it's just a matter of removing 4 nuts (metric #10 socket), and replacing them back once the new handle is slipped into place! The bars that operate the door latches simply snap into the plastic clips attached to the handle assembly.
The operation sounds worse then what it really is. It took me longer to write up this review than it did to actually do the work! 5 minutes max...done!! Hell, if you're local; buy the parts

How do you remove the rear side door panel to


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

Rightside interior door handle not opening door


It could mean the rod connecting the handle to the latch has broken. 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. and you can access the innards of the door

Remove door panel on a Ford Van


For a 1999 Ford Econoline 150 (assume the same or very similar), remove triangular plastic cover over mirror assembly by prying straight out, remove plastic door handle cover by prying up from the front side, remove electronic door switches by prying up from back side, remove round plastic cover at bottom rear of door panel. Four screws are now revealed, remove them. Lift door panel straight up, clips are hooks (not snap in). Work door switch assembly out of door panel. Set door panel aside. Reassemble in reverse order.

1988 jaguar and cannot open doors from outside


need to remove the interior door panels and check all the linkages. One of them is a brittle plastic linkage that is famous for breaking, and bits get caught up in the travel path of the door handle. I had taht issue, and rebult all mine with aftermarket plastic linkages, and the metal parts I pulled from junkyard cars. No way to fix it without removing the interior door panels, but that is thankfully a pretty easy job.
