SOURCE: Heater core instructions for 04 Chevy Impala SS

Before you go thru that expense. If it is water leaking,check the evaporator. Sometimes it gets plugged with debris. So first, decide if it is water or anti-freeze. Also, I have taken the heater hoses off of the inside of the motor area and flushed the core out. It works on some.

SOURCE: driver side window off track

2 sets (total 4) T30 Torx screws need to be removed.
The 2 holding the interior door handle grip / cup.
And then behind where the cup is, there are 2 more, that secure the door panel to the door.

FWIW, there are also 2 philips screws. One at the top, near the mirror. The second at the moveable door handle latch.

Lastly, of course, the standard "pop" sort of fasteners, around the perimeter on the 2 sides and bottom of the door panel. Also, there are 2 light blue plastic alignment posts (that do *not* fasten).

When re-assembling, make *sure* to properly catch / engage the door panel's top black plastic lip into the 3 hidden metal "U" holders, at the very top of the door panel.

best bet is to stop in at a Pep Boys, Autozone, or similar big autoparts seller, and ask for free trouble code scan, which should pinpoint area causing problem. If not obvious by codes, what is necessary to repair the problem code, get back to us with those codes and we will be glad to assist you further. Better this way, takes away the guess work, and saves you money, as well as getting it right the first time.

I have a 2006 chevy impala and the passenger door wont open. How can i take the door panel off while its shut?


According to how close the seat is to the door, it may be easier to pull out the seat to facilitate removing the panel. Sadly the retaining screws may be impossible to get to with the door closed. I'm thinking the Impala has clips and the screws will all be accessible on the face of the panel. If you can get all the bezels and armrest/door handle hardware loose you may be able to pry up from the bottom to pop the panel out of the slits the clips are in.

Fuse diagram underhood


The 2003 Chevy Impala has four accessible fuse panels. There are two panels in the car's interior, on each side of the dash. There are also two underhood fuse panels accessible in the engine compartment. Removing the fuse panels is necessary to access and replace the Impala's fuses and relays. The panels are not attached by screws or bolts, and come off with ease.
Removing the Interior Fuse Panels
Open the driver or passenger side door and inspect the applicable edge of the dash. You'll see a panel marked "Fuses."
Grasp the fuse panel by its embedded handle. Pull the panel toward the rear of the Impala and outward to remove it from the side of the dashboard.
Push the panel toward the front of the Impala and inward to reattach it when you are finished.
Removing the Underhood Fuse Panels
Shut off the Impala's engine and open the hood. Approach the passenger side of the engine compartment.
Inspect the area beneath the passenger-side strut mount. Here you'll see two fuse panels.
Grasp the clips on both sides of the panel. Pull the clips outward and lift the panel to remove it, exposing the fuses. Repeat for the other underhood fuse panel.
Push the panel back over the fuse block until it snaps in place to reattach it. You can google it to find illustrations .

General instructions for door panel removal; Door panels are attached to the door frame with clips such as the one above. The ribbed, screw-like part of the clips are inserted into holes in the door frame around the perimeter of the sides and bottom of the panel
Auto Repair Mechanics How to Remove Car Door Panel

The video shows details of door panel removal. First locate all the screws on the door panel, usually at the door handle and door rest. Look for any hidden screws that may be covered with small plastic caps.

After all screws are removed, the side and bottom clips need to be popped out of the door frame. You can purchase a set of trim tools to pop the clips, or you can use flat blade screw drivers and a flat putty knife to pop the clips out. Sometimes the clips break, but they are replaceable. Once the sides and bottom are loose, the top of the panel is loosened by lifting up on the panel, disengaging the panel from the top track on the door frame. Be careful of wiring connectors, which will have to be disconnected to completely remove the panel.

How do you remove the rear speakers from a 2004 chevy impala?


Remove the rear seat. On later models remove the rear upper quarter panel by pulling down & out to disengage the retainer clips, then sliding the roof leg out from under the trim panel over the door. Detach the rear seat belts through the slot in the rear parcel shelf. Pry up the plastic clips securing the rear parcel shelf. Then lift up & out to remove it from the vehicle. Remove the speaker retaining screws or tabs. If the speaker seal has bonded with the metal shelf, hold the tabs & pry the housing away from the metal. Disconnect the electical connector & remove the speaker. Install in reverse order. Good luck!

Front fender removal


Hiya... here's the details of fender removal/installation:
the left-side (same for right-side) fender has 6 bolts attached to the "sidebody" frame.
The bolt location:
3 are on the top fender-easy to find when hood is open,
1 is hidden at the rear of top inner fender-just open the left-front door wide to find it (early equinoxes had foam-like noise absorber material in it, just remove it from underneath fender after the wheelwell liner is removed),
1 bolt is hidden at bottom of front fender area at headlight/bumper area-you need to remove plastic wheelwell liner to gain access,
1 bolt is hidden at bottom of rear fender area where the black plastic rocker panel meets below the fender...
THIS area is probably the most difficult task to do since it requires you to remove a small bolt found on the front of rocker panel behind the front-left wheel then use a flat screwdriver or clip removal tool to pry open the black plastic **clip's 'dime-sized' head prior to pull out the clip's body (it has 8 clips underneath the chassis) then use your hands to grasp the rocker panel underneath, pull it down-toward you...this should do it....USE CARE during rocker panel and clip removal/installation so you don't break the clips!
It also has yellow plastic clips inside the rocker panel (used as a guide during installation into rocker sill holes-use caution not to break it)
**note: early equinoxes had rocker panel clips that you can actually pull it out from the hole, while later equinoxes has 'built-in' clips inside rocker panels that you don't see the clip heads below it due to engineering part design change**
Be sure to exercise care when handing this task!
