Good luck and hope this helps, most of the time the parts person can help you change the back door lift.

How to remove lift front door panel

Hi Charles:
Most door panels are attached in a similar manner.
- There will be screws near the arm rest that secure the panel to the door. They have to be removed.
- Manual window cranks and some door latches have a hidden spring clip that has to be removed. You'll need to press the panel against the door to expose the clip. Removing it can be accomplished with a small screwdriver or by sliding a piece of cloth so that the clip catches on it.
- The bottom and edges of the panel will be attached with plastic pins. Remove by gently prying them.
- At this point the panel should be able to be removed by lifting upwards so that the to edge releases from next to the window.
Hope this helps..

Need to remove door panel drivers door bonneville 1999. my goal to replace outside mirror. thank you,

Door panels are about the same they have always been.
You first remove the things attached, like handles, etc.
Most have screws, either recessed or covered by plastic plugs.
Door handle may have spring clip that requires a hook or special tool for, but you can improvise. Just push panel in to get a better look around handle shaft.

Once you have all the extra stuff off, then pop all the little plactic or metal clips around the front, back and bottom edges. It helps to use something a little wide, to not scratch or break panel. Each clip snaps into hole.

But the top is different, and hooks over the metal door inner shell. It has to be lifted upwards, after unscrewing door lock button, if there is one. The bottom of the panel has to be held out enough to clear handle shafts as you lift up.

How do you remove the driver side door panel on a 2004 Jeep Cherokee.

- Remove trim plug from mirror flag bezel.
- Remove screws attaching trim panel to door
- Using a trim remover, detach trim panel perimeter push-in fasteners from door trim panel
- Lift trim panel upward and separate from door.
- If equipped, disconnect harness connectors for power accesories.
- Disconnect latch rods from inside handle actuator
- Finally, separate trim panel from vehicle.

I suggest check all information in the WJ Repair Manual Section 23 Body with graphics and other details.

Good luck (remember rated this help).

Repair outer door handle of a 1991 nissan pathfinder

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. Pull back the weather seal if you have one and you'll be able to remove the bolts and rod connecting to the outer handle

Need to take door panel off to replace the window that was smashed need a diagram if possible.

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. 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

The window fell down inside the door. we can't figure out how to get the inside panel off or how to get the window back on track. any ideas? thanks

Hi my name is Allen!

This is a common problem with Chrysler vehicles.
The cable on the regulator has broken allowing the window to slide downward, unfortunately the only repair is replacement of the Regulator/Motor Assembly which must be bought at the dealership.

To remove the door panel, you must remove all the screws and remove the handle that opens the door, next grab the panel and pull upward if doesn't move upward you will need to pull it toward you away from the door, pull very hard the clips holding it are very tight, sometimes you will need to install a screw driver at the bottom of the panel, put it between the panel and the door and pry toward you. They will make a pooping sound that sounds like you breaking the door but its OK, pull it hard, then lift upward and toward you. That's It!
