There are screws in holes that hold the armrests in place (usually a crosspoint screwdriver takes these loose..) then you have plastic clips that require a flatblade screwdriver or door tool to remove these without breaking them..(these pull straight out of the door and they are usually around the sides and bottom of the door..need to also check the window relay and the system fuses for failure.. then oce the entire door panel is loose from the top(clips on) then the rest of the inner door will be open after removeal of the plastic(or paper or fiber) door insulation..then everthing else should be visible..god luck

SOURCE: 2001 tahoe door panel

THE COUTESY LAMP IS HOT DUE TO THE DOOR BEING OPEN WHILE THIS PROCEDURE IS DONE!!!! First: Remove the triangle panel at the top of the door (behind the mirror). This is held in with two metal clips about half way down the panel. Do not pry at the bottom as there are two tabs that slide in to keep the module in place. I pulled the top of the triangle out by hand then could see the clips and used a straight screw driver to carefully pry from under the triangle panel so as not to scar the visible part after re-assembly. Once these two clips are disengaged the triangle should pull straight up and be free. Second: Carefully pry out the door lock insert. There are no significant tabs to worry about here. Again a straight screw driver and care should not leave any scars. The lock insert has no mechanical connection but simply is used to slide the lock rod. Re-installing you will need to align the slot for the rod in the lock or unlock position depending on the rod position. Third: Carefully pry out the insert that is located at the door handle. Start at the rear of the insert as this is where the clips are located and once the rear is out pull open the door handle and pull the insert to the rear so as not to break off the two front tabs. You will find two small screws (mine were black). One near the front and one at the rear of the door handle module. Both are 7 mm and are the only ones that need to be remove in the process. (I understand some door panels have an other screw at the very bottom of the door as well; guess you'll have to check you door. Fourth: Pry up the control panel for the automatic windows and unplug the wires. Here again start from the rear and once the rear is free pull the module to the rear and it should come free. There are tabs at the front that you do not want to break off. To unplug the wires - First remove the clips (mine were blue) that hold the plug in place. There is also a push catch on the plug that must be depressed to release the plug from the control panel. Fifth: My door had no push in 'buttons' or clips to hold the door panel in place. It simply lifted up and became free with the exception of the numerous wires attached to things like the speakers, the remote mirrow and courtesy light. Unplug these wires by first taking off any retaining clips (usually blue) and then unplug the wires. The courtesy light pulls straight out (toward the front) and watch your fingers as this is one hot little bulb. The door panel can then be totally removed and set aside. You may find it easier to remove the courtesy light lens by prying out the rear first and then pulling it toward the back of the door so as not to break the two front clips. I found it easier to do this and then install the bulb in the lens and then install the lens back in place. Six: I'm sure I don't need to say it but here goes - ' reverse the procedure to re-assemble'. Remember to poke the courtesy light wire out the hole and re-connect the remote mirror and speaker wires before the door is put in place. The wires to the window and electronic lock module can be installed after the door is back in place. Working by myself made the door difficult to handle during re-installation so I took a 'light' bungy cord and placed some protection over the top of the door and hooked the bungy into the opening were the door handle was to come through. This allowed me to steady the door and do the electrical connections as required. PS - we were replacing the power window motor and were able to 'force' the cable into the gears of the new motor by turning the motor and this saved a lot of further disassembly. The contacts on the new motor were reversed so I removed the pins from the plug going into the motor and reversed them - presto.

SOURCE: Instructions on how to remove a rear door panel

Firstly, if you don't know how...I doubt you can remove it anyway. Take it to your local car stereo installation shop and ask them NICELY to take it off - explain what the problem is (lemme guess the window/lock doesn't work).
Good Luck

SOURCE: Remove right rear door panel 2003 Buick LaSabre

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. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. 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: need to remove inner rear passenger side door

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the 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. Then you need to pull back the weather seal and then you can access the bolts securing the outer handle

I have a 93 buick regal but my front doors & rear


Well, the mirrors would be on the circuit with the courtesy lights. The door locks and windows would be on different circuits.
Why can't you unlock the driver's or passenger door with the key and open it with the door handle ?

How do I pull door panel 89 regal


If you have an electric window and it is sliding up and down, there is no need to pull the door panel to "check" it. The cables are broken. It needs a window regulator.

Instructions for window regulator replacement can be found at alldatadiy.com

I have a 99 Buick Regal, my low tire is staying on although tire pressure is right. Any ideas?


open the passenger side door,

There should be a little panel on the dash that covers the fuse panel.

Pull the cover off.

Turn the key to the run posistion.

Press and hold the button in the passenger side fuse panel that says RESET.

The Low tire light should flash 3 times then go out.

It will now have to go thru a re-learn procedure, which will do it's thing while you are driving around. Just make sure all the tire pressures stay at the correct level.

Hi, my car is 02 Buick Regal. The automatic window on the passenger side does not work. I want to know how to disassemble the door and to fix the problem. Many thanks.


Hello: The auto down part of the system is in the switch if the window goes up and down when you hold the switch there is no need to remove the door panel. To replace the switch you just need to remove the switch plate, take a 6 in straight screw driver put something under it to protect the panel, push in and slightly down to release the clip and pry up.

A/c blows hot air on drivers sde


The actuator door on the driver's side is out of position and needs to be reset. Remove the negative battery cable for 1/2 hour to reset the computer. Start the HVAC system and you should be able to hear the door adjusting itself and cold should come out of the driver's side vent.

No power to the passenger rear window


I assume you've tried with the driver's door switch and the rear passenger switch and nothing happens. If so, then it's unlikely that both switches went bad and it points to a bad motor...
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. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. You can test the switches at this point to see if they work. If not, you can then pull off the weather seal and access the regulator, motor inside the door that will be held in by several bolts
