Get tube of plasic wood make sure boning surface is clean and dust free. If wholes are biggish, say 1-2 cm or more mix in some wood shavings or sawdust. look in DIY shop for choices of cost and setting times. Rough finish can be sanded doxn and even painted when set.

SOURCE: Trying to remove drivers 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: Bolt size needed to fit 04 Odyssey Frame for hitch?

There is a good chance that the bolts supplied are correct. The correct size is M12-1.25 X 35mm. On vehicles more than a couple years old the factory weld nuts can get rusty. It would be a good idea to purchasing some PB Blaster or Deep Creep penetrating lubricant and spraying it up in the wholes and then cleaning it with a wire brush. It is extremely important that you use a penetrating lubricant NOT WD40. It will not deteriorate the rust.

There was a big Recall on Subframes with notifications going out to select States. The recall is 98V323000. I had a subframe come apart while driving. The Recall took care of everything including Towing. However, with the dropping of the cradle, my A/C lines were damaged and they would not cover that.

The exact problem was rust would reduce the diameter of the washer and the rubber mounts would slip out. I know I lost parts on the road, so the Dealer must have that stuff in the Recall kit. They will need to run the Vin#. The Recall was in 1998.

'06 Chrysler Pacifica w/sunroof: When it rains water is leaking out of the front door frame covers and sun visor screws. (Sun roof is closed.)

hi i'm not familar with your car but if you can wind the sunroof back so the sunroof is fully open look at all four corners where the sunroof sits into there should be at least 2 drain holes which can over time become clogged with debris, if you find them use some warm water and flexi pipe to clean the drain holes out. hope this helps

Remove door panel on 2008 Chrysler Sebring to replace window switch

This pic is of a door panel retainer that hold the panel onto the inner door frame. They are typically placed on the sides and bottom of the door panel. The top of the door panel slides downward into a channel on the top of the door frame.
The first step is to locate all screws on the door panel and remove them. Usually the screws are in the door handle to hold the handle in place. Look for other locations for screws. SOmetimes the screws have button covers that hide the screw head.
After all screws are out , take a wide blade screw driver or you can purchase a tool for door panel removal, and insert the screw driver inbetween the panel and the door, and pry these fasteners out all around the panel. Once the panel is free on the side and bottom, lift up on the panel to disengage it from the top channel. Be careful of the wiring behind the panel. You may have to unplug the wire connectors to remove the panel further.
These panel fasteners become brittle and may break when they are popped out. They are avaiable at auto parts stores. Just take one with you to match up, since there are several differnt sizes.

My drivers door window motor is giving me problems how do I remove door panel

Remove the triangle Piece at top by Mirror, it just snapps off, usually have to dig retainers out and slide back on for installation. then pull your window switch assembly out (snapps out also) watch for retainers falling off. next pull the Bezel off around the inner door handle snaps off, then there is a screw than holds it on and another screw in arm rest if I remember right then after screws are out grab by arm rest and slide the whole panel upwards and then pull off, there are pins that fit in a hole and then they slide or hook over inner door and screws hold in place. I would advise replacing the whole unit or you will be back in there again soon.Dorman company makes a lifetime window regulator assembly/with motor for around $100.00 and there are 4-5 10mm bolts that hold it in place, you can plug the switch to move window up or down to align with the 2 circle holes towards top of door frame, this is where you can acess the 2 10mm screws that you loosen to remove glass from regulator, once clamps are loose slide glass tight in to top of door and put big pieces of masking or duct tape over top of door to hold glass up out of the way while you are removing and reinstalling new assembly, then let the tape off after all the mounting screws are tight and slide glass down inside the clamps on reg. and run window up as tight to the top of door this aligns glass in the channel and then tighten the 2 clamps on the glass and try it couple times making sure it does'nt bind and rolls all the way up. don't forget to plug the motor in !

How to install a rear window regulator on a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue

How do you remove door panels and replace window regulator on an Intrigue? Answer : For a 2002 Intrigue – Front Passenger I didn’t disconnect battery. You use window switch later to align window tabs to regulator frame – with ignition off power locks work, nothing is exposed.
1. Remove visible screw under armrest, pop out finger inset oval panel, remove exposed 2nd screw. 2. Pop off door handle trim – lock button assembly slide thru its hole in door panel. 3. Pop off window switch trim/holder – slide thru its hole in door panel. 4. Remove 2 slot screws under bottom of door.
5. I used a smooth metal letter opener (or old fork) to pry panel from door at each point plastic fasteners insert into metal. Start prying a little, see three on bottom perimeter two inches from edge. Three on door open edge and three on door hinge edge. Slow and easy = whole panel will pop off. A metal compression spring fastener connects at top door hinge edge trim – pry out. Be sure door lock and window switch remain inside. Clean all surfaces of door panel and lay on back seat.
6. With panel off you see clear plastic moisture sheet stuck to door with black rubbery paste - peel it from door for reattachment. You now see mechanism and fastener points. Lay out replacement window regulator and motor on mat by door to help you recognize fastening points, etc.
7. Carefully pull glass all way up and hold in place with two pieces duck tape two feet long with ¼# removal tabovers. Put a foot on outside glass and loop over door frame a foot to inside glass – with room to later redo when you twice lower and raise a foot to access bolts removing/attaching it to regulator bar.
8. Remove 3 bolts holding motor to door. 9. Remove upper 2 bolts and lower 2 bolts holding regulator frame to door.
10. Lower window to expose thru panel cutout area two bolts holding glass tabs to regulator, retape securely. Remove bolts, raise window, retape securely by looping over door frame.
11. Window regulator and motor assembly comes out as unit. Unplug window switch tab to release from motor. BEFORE reassembly clean the inside of the door, put in a little Borax for bugs, etc.
12. Reassemble by starting three motor bolts, fitting regulator assembly in door cavity. Replug window switch, motor can be placed in thru oval slots, leave all bolts loose. Replace two upper and two lower regulator bracket bolts, leave loose.
13. Turn on ignition, use window switch to lower window glass regulator tab bracket until accessible thru panel cutout. Turn off ignition, manually lower glass until tabs align with regulator bracket bolt holes and tighten these bolts. Take tape off, turn on ignition, raise window to top.
14. Tighten three motor bolts and four regulator bracket bolts, make sure alignment is OK. Remove your tape residue - clean goo from both glass sides with Goof Off. THEN raise and lower several times to assure all fits and works like new.
15. Reinstall clear plastic sheet, aligning any fastener holes and rubbing down perimeter with a cloth .
16. Align door panel, assure door lock and window switch are pulled thru. Visually align each tab on door opening side and pop them in one at a time. Continue on bottom – make sure you see them align or they will break. Finish on door hinge side and with metal fastener at top. IF you break a fastener, take one from small bag you bought from Pep boys - otherwise take bag back for refund…
17. Reinstall 2 armrest screws and 2 bottom panel screws, then pop in door lock, trim piece and window switch.
Clean the window inside and out with glass cleaner/polish/raineze so it will slide easily and your done. You can’t do anything about the motors going out. You can avoid regulator tab breaks by making sure the window is raised BEFORE closing those big doors – down is the weak moment!! I work slow and clean as I go, the job took two hours. I highly recommend – saved a bundle over dealer and they shipped everything in several days – as ordered!

A: To remove the plastic piece with the door lock button and door handle connected to it:

1- Remove the screw in the middle located behind a plastic cover button

The screws are located: bottom of hand hold and the other behind the handle, both covered by little covers that have to be pryed off to access the screws.(hint: the screw with the built in spacer goes behind the handle when you are trying to reinstall)
The 7-plastic snaps: 3 across bottom and 2 on each side. Not visible, they are mounted to the inside of the panel.
The 1-plastic plug is visible at the upper front of the panel and is the same color as the surrounding trim

C: Take off the big plastic triangle piece above the door panel and behind the mirror. Pull/pry off. It has 2 snaps holding it on. one near bottom and one near the front.
