SOURCE: 2003 ford thunderbird how do you remove inner door panel?

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

SOURCE: how do you remove the door panel in a 1996

use a flat head screwdriver and pop it off where it meets the door. Be careful when it comes loose. If it falls it can rip the wires from the power windows and locks.

SOURCE: need to remove door panel

To remove the door panel, remove any screws that are in the vicinity of pull handles and door pockets. These screws will be under little trim covers that you need to prise off to get to their heads. Look for the screws around the edge of the panel and also the screw in the latch release handle recess.
The lock knob, if there is one there, will have to be screwed off and then carefully work your way around the door, freeing the panel's clips from their holes in the door frame. (Doot panels are brittle and clip break out easily).
Finally the panel will probably have to be lifted out if the window slot. (If the panel does not come off, work out what is retaining it and remove that screw or slide it off the clip that is still holding the panel. Disconnect any electrical plugs behind the panel. Under the panel you will find a plastic dust sheet that is stuck to the door frame, remove this carefully, you will have to replace it before replacing the panel.

Hi!

You will need to open the door panel by looking for screws near the corners of the door and also on the inside handle, then look for any disconnections in motor that is used for the power windows operation. Also, see if the wire coming to the motor is fine and nothing is blocking the window to open.

Do rate the solution.
Thanks
