SOURCE: Removing door panel from a 1997 GMC Suburban

Door panel is attached to door frame on the sides and bottom perimeter with push-in fasteners. There are screws that attach the arm rest/door pull to the frame , and also the panel trim around the door open/close handle.

Locate and remove all screws.

The perimeter of the panel is popped away from the door frame by inserting a flat blade screw driver between the panel and the frame.
There is a trim tool for this that works better than a screw driver. Pretty inexpensive from an auto parts store. Once the sides and bottom are free, the panel is lifted up to disengage it from the top portion of the frame where the panel is attached to the inside of the window trim.

Be careful not to pull or yank the panel too far out because of the wires that are attached to the inside of the panel.

Those plastic fasteners are replaceable, should any break when they are popped out (again, auto parts store carries these).
Hope this helps...

SOURCE: drivers door lock cylinder has fallen or been pushed inside door

Take your current key and the new cylinder to a locksmith. The tunmblers will be replaced with ones that will match your key ridges.

You can try do-it-yourself, but it may not be as "strong" as having a smith do it.:
1. Insert your current key into the new cylinder.
2. File-down the tumblers that are sticking out.
3. File them down to the cylinder.

When you get your old cylinder out, put ypour key in it and you will see what I mean.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Trying to replace the inside door handle of a 1997 gmc suburban

The door is installed by holding it at a 45 degree angle and lowering the top edge until it meets the window gap. It is snapped down then simply swings into place. Then it is pressed together until the plastic clips sap closed. After that the pieces like door handle, arm rest and speaker and grill cover are installed using screws. This is for both hard plastic and soft door panels. Just reverse this process.
Start by checking the arm rest. There should be several screws that attach it to the steel inner door panel. Depending on the door handle and if equipped, the speaker and cover.
Once your sure all that you have checked for all mounting screws then the next step it to pop the door panel off. The panels are attached using plastic clips that are attached to the panel. These clips will have a male type prong that snaps into a female receptacle on the steel inner door panel. Starting at the bottom place a wedge (like a scraper or wonderbar) between the gap of the panel and inner steel door and pry it apart. The best place to start is at the lower outside corner. Once you have a couple popped apart you can use your hand and pop the rest. Do this at the bottom and work your way across and up because the top lip where the panel and window gap meet are held differently. That section needs to be forced up.
Hope this helps

Remove ignition lock to switch link 1995 suburban


The ignition lock assembly contains two components: a lock cylinder to deter theft and an electrical portion that supplies power to electrical components such as the radio, electric windows, and windshield wipers. The electrical portion of the ignition switch also provides power to the starter motor to start the engine.
The ignition lock is an anti-theft device that prevents a vehicle from being driven unless the ignition key is in the ignition switch. If the ignition key is not in the ignition switch, it 's impossible to turn the steering wheel.
To replace the ignition switch cylinder lock, the trim panels around the steering wheel are removed. Then the tamper-proof hardware that attaches the ignition lock assembly to the steering column is removed. The ignition lock assembly is removed from the steering column, and the lock cylinder is replaced. The new ignition lock is reattached to the steering column, and the trim panels are replaced.make sure you dissconect battery first the 1997 had a recall on the ignition switch dont no if the 1995 had a recall if so they will replace for free

1999 GMC suburban locks seize in locked postion


I just bought a 1999 Suburban and all of the door lock actuators were bad including the rear (barn style door) while I was replacing the rear door acuator I noticed that even with the factory mounting bracket on the actuator it was causing the door lock rod (the rod from the keyed cylinder lock to the actuator) was on a bind......the solution I came up with is adding an additional 3/4" spacer between the factory mount bracket and the door attach point. this solved any binding and the door lock works great now........also I used a lubricant on all the doors where the rods run through the plastic guides, which seemed to help quite a bit! Hope this help's.

ELECTRIC DOOR LOCKS ONLY LOCK SOME TIMES


if you hit the lock button a couple times, will it finally lock?

If so, then you will need to take door cover off and lube up the connectors as they probably got corroded.
