Do not pry off main panel! It has built on tabs to hold it in place.
First ease the angular top front panel, switch rest and handle cover.
flat screw driver used carefully works fine. Unplug the switch wire connectors [3]. remove the 2 small screws. door light can be remove and disconnected as well. The door speaker plug can be done after with the main panel part way off.
Lift up on the main panel to remove. Wedge or tape the window glass to before removing the power window assembly.
remove 5 bolts on the actuator assem. Loosen the 2 bolts on the glass clamps.

SOURCE: I need to remove the door panel on my 2004 Avalanche

There are plastic clips that hold the door panel inplace .. First look for any hidden screws near the door handle . there might be a little plastic cover that you need to remove with a small screw driver to find the screws.. look under the handle also to see if there are any hidden screws . next take a flat blade screw driver and start at the bottom corner and try gently prying the door panel off . try to stay close to the plastic clips not to damage them by prying real hard .. once you have snapped them loose all the way around .. lift up on the door panel to remove it from around the window lip and out it should come.. holler if you have any problems.. usually The mirrors on the chevys are up above the panel and there is a triangle plastic cover over it on the inside .. it will pry off also gently and there are 3 nuts there that need to be removed .. use caution these fall behind the door panel ... holler if you need more.

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.

The motor is shot. It works a little and overheats, replace the motor . Same thing the the lock acuators. The are trying but have lost the power to move the locks. May as well replace them while the door is apart.

Door handle

Once you've removed the door panel, you can see the 2 bolts holding it in place, also, there's a rod that goes to the actuator & that needs to be carefully removed.

The door panel has to be carefully removed by taking any trim pieces off first, remove any retaining screws, then it is carefully removed by inserting tools behind it to pry out on the retainers. Once the few screws are removed and the retainers are popped loose, you have to push upward to get the window edge at the top to clear it's mounting location & then it's removed.

I always recommend a manual with all of the pictures to give you exploded views of what you are taking apart. There are many manuals available at your local auto-parts store to give you specific instructions on removing these components.

You can find these replacement handles on eBay or at the dealer:

I'm replacing the door handle on my 1999 Chev. Astro van...I closed the door and now it won't open..even the inside latch won't open the door

take the door card/trim off and put your hand inside and pull the cable or lift it at the back of the lock, you have not put it back correctly check the small bars are in the correct position. either way you will have to remove the door trim its an easy fix but can take a while depending on any lock covers or motors inside the door.

hope this helps

Looking for information on how to access/replace driver door handle on 1997 Chevrolet Astro Van LS AWD.

There are two ways to access it, you can remove the inside door panel, the window, and the window track and you will be able to access the bolts or you can skip removing the window and track and cut a small hole on the side of the door beside the handle and access the bolt through the hole.(assuming you mean the outer handle) If its the inside handle you would remove the inner panel and then if it has never been replaced before drill out the rivets holding the handle on.

How do I replace a '94 chev Astro outside drivers door handle

You first have to remove the inner door panel by taking the screws out of the inner handle and arm rest. the outer edges of the inner door panel either has screws or it has clips that can be pulled out. after you remove the panel you need to roll up the window and you will be looking at the back of the handle. simply un hook the clips that hold the lockrod and the inner opener rod and unbolt the outside door handle. reverse the prosses and walla.
