SOURCE: How do you remove a back door panel on a 2000

remove the door handle screws, and possibly the armrest has some screws hidden under dimples. then remove door handles from metal linkage and use a small putty knife or flat screwdriver and gently pop the door panel loose from the door. there are little press in plastic tabs that are connected to the door panels that just pop out of the holes on the doors , if you be careful and wedge away from the door with the screwdriver

There are some awesome adhesives on the market. I am thinking about one for boats and just remember "1500" as part of the name. With marine products you will not have any problems with moisture separating it so car washes will be okay.

I had a problem similar to this but mine was in a GT and they would just work when they wanted to. I just had all the wires cut leading to the front passenger seat, back driver seat, and back passenger seat. And left the wires on the main. They all work perfect now. But the downside is that the driver is the only one who can put the windows down. (Which isn't always a bad thing) Hope I could help!

SOURCE: How do I remove the rear door inner panel from my

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.

Trying to remove the door panel on the rear driver's side door of a 1991 Buick Regal Limited to check the window motor. Removed 3 screws, popped all the plastic holders around edges of door, but there...


Are you talking about the door handle hinge? The door handle and hing do not need to be removed to remove the door panel. Remove the door handle bezel and the hole will be big enogh to come straight off with the door panel. See the picture below. This is the only diagram supplied in the service manual. It shows the bezel for the driver's door but it states that the rear door is similar. If you allready have the bezel off, or you are not talking about the door handle hinge, I don't know what you are talking about when you say "hinge thing"

Arrrrgh! I cannot lift the interior door panel off at the top after removing the 2 screws under the arm rest and the one in the rear. I've disconnected the power window, seats and door lock...


sometimes you have to have the bottom pulled out about a foot, and have the window down half way, and then wigge from side to side while lifting over the lip along the top of the door at the window line.

How do you replace drives side exeior door handel for 95geoprizm


1) Remove the plug inside the interior armrest and remove phillips screw.
2) Remove armrest and two screws that hold door panel to door frame.
3) Pop the outer cover off the interior door handle.
4) Remove the interior lock knob and remove door panel by popping out tabs connected to door frame and lifting up off of window ledge.
5) Remove the two nuts holding exterior handle in place.
6) Disconnect the L shaped linkage from the handle. The trick to getting the L shaped linkage into the new handle is to feed L shaped metal pole through hole in door where exterior handle was, leaving the lower end of this linkage in its slot.
7) Feed the end of L shaped pole through the plastic 'hinge' in new handle by folding the hinge over and pushing the end of the L through both sides of the plastic hinge at once. slide the lower loop of the plastic hinge down the L shaped pole to secure pole to handle.
8) Place new handle into door and reverse the process to reinstall interior panel.

Hope this helps Tim

Roll the window down.
Lift up the door handle and pull out the two small pins holding it to the
inner door mechanism.
Get the right size star driver and remove all the little bolts holding the exterior plastic body panel onto the door frame.
Lift panel gently, up and out, and the guts of the door will be in front of you.
Visit a junk yard and buy a replacement for the broken part.
Other than color, the door parts on SL and SW 96-99 are the same.

How do you remove the inside rear door panel of a 2002 ford explorer. I need to service the power window on the rear door on the passenger side. Submitted on 9/29/2009 @ 1:07 pm. Thank you


1. Open window & remove door lock knob. 2. Remove 2 screws from armrest & remove armrest. 3. If manual windows, remove windoe crank. 4. Pry under & remove trim panel around door handle, remove any un-covered screws. 5. This is the fun part, the door panel is affixed with plastic retaining clips, slip something thin under door panel until you can feel where clip is and pull door panel away from door at that point. These clips are suppose to remain in the door panel, but rarely do. They usually remain in the door itself. do this for EVERY clip you find, there are clips approx a foot apart around the entire panel. Good luck. 6. After all retaining clips are pulled out, lift panel slightly to disengage panel from flange at base of window. 7. Disconnect any electric wires or switches and there you have it. Try not to curse.
