SOURCE: Broken power window mechanism in
Remove the plastic screw covers at the forward edge of the door. Remove the 2 gold coloured screws.
Using a flat blade screwdriver, insert the blade above & below the locking thing at the door handle, pry up and down, top & bottom respectively. Slide & pull the handle out, remove the rod going to the handle.
Remove the 2 big screws for the door panel. 1 is under a small trim cover, the other is under the armrest
Remove the lower light & unplug it (if you have one) which may be under the arm rest (it pops out)
Press the centers of the 2 round push clips that are on the rear edge of the door panel and pull the clips out
Remove any screws at the bottom of the door panel (if you have them)
Starting at the bottom of the panel pull straight out with steady, even pressure as to not snap the plastic clips. After the bottom & side clips are disconnected from the door, lift the top of the panel straight up.
Remove the plastic sheet that covers the inner shell of the door.
Uning a 10 millimeter socket, remove the bolts that holds the window onto the regulator
Remove the window, up & out thru the top of the door
Unbolt & replace the regulator.

The door panel is held on by plastic clips and 5 screws. 3 screws are on the bottom and 1 in the pull cup and 1 in the inner door handle.Then grab one of the corners and give a small tug, when you get some of the clips to pop out then proceed around the whole panel. To replace the panel take the clips out of the door with a fork and slide them back into the panel and then line it up on the door and use your hand like a hammer and bang the panel back on. Hope this helps

3 on power window equipped models pry out the armrest switch control plate and disconnect the electrical connections

5 insert a wide putty knife, a thin screwdriver or a special trim panel removal tool between the trim panel and the head of the retaining clip to disengage the door panel retaining clips.then remove the remaining door panel retaining screws at the lower edge of the door panel.
6 once all of the clips are screws are disengage detach the trim panel disconnect any electrical connectors and remoe the trim panel from the vehicle by gently pulling it up and out.
7 for access to the inner door remove the door panel support bracket then peel back the watershield taking care not to tear it. it install the trim panel first press the watershield back into place. if necessary add more sealant to hold it in place.

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.

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. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls
