Re: Front Driver Side Door Panel
Look for any screws near the door handle might be kind of hidden or covered by a removable plastic cover . also start at the bottom corner with a good flat blade screw driver and pry the clips loose starting on bottom corner and across then up .. if all screws are out near door handle you should be able to lift up on the door panel and remove it unless there is a screw in say the window crank if its manuel. electric windows and door locks has a plugin in back you can unplug also to take the whole thing off. thanks Jerry holler if you need more.

you should write a more detailed description but it could possibly be the pin in the hunge that keeps the door propped open, that could be jammer or if the handle/latch is the part that isnt opening then get in through the passenger side and pop off the door panel to the drivers side door and make sure the lines are connected from the door handle to the latch, and if you were in an accident recently depending on the severity it could be a bent frame/door depending where hit

This is for the front passenger side door panel from a 1999 Ford Expedition. The
driver's side door should be the same, except for the mirror switch
which needs to be unplugged. The 1998 *might* be the same, I don't know,
but this should be helpful to someone.
Use a flat blade screwdriver or other suitable tool to pry out on the
top of the triangular plastic panel on the top front of the door panel.
The plastic holder should pull out of the door. Now pry up on both sides
of the triangular panel and pull it loose. Remove the philips head
screw you find under this panel. Pull the door latch handle, pry out the
insert where the handle goes through, and remove the bolt that holds
the door handle in place. Remove the door handle. Pry up on the ends of
the door switch panel to remove it. Unplug the cables by pushing in on
the lock tab on the side of the plug and pulling out. Remove the philips
head screw accessible through the switch panel hole. Insert a flat
blade screwdriver into the slot at the bottom of the courtesy light lens
and pry up and out to remove the lens. Remove the philips head screw
behind this lens. Pull up on the door panel to remove it. Be careful of
the courtesy light when removing the panel - give the light a quarter
turn counter-clockwise from the rear to remove it from the door panel.
Its possible that this GUIDE can helpfull as reference.
There are three fuse boxes - Driver Side Instrument Panel, Passenger Side Instrument Panel, and engine compartment (drivers side nearest to the firewall) - The Instrument Panel ones can be located by oning the respective doors and you will find the removalable panels on each end - on each panel door is a guide as to what fuse is located there ---(Radio Fuse is located on the passenger side)
if the car is built like monte carlo for 2000 there are 2 fuse panels inside. one on the driver side when you open door and theres one the passenger side when you open the door there are panels on both sides of the dash that pull off. and then of course there are the fuse blocks under the hood. by the battery.
The passenger side airbag is a lot easier then driver side. Take the glove box out and you will see two 10mm bolts holding it in place. When you open the passenger side front door, remove the panel on the side of the dash and you will see yellow connectors.The 1 closest to the front is attached to the air bag, it is clipped into the frame. Just pull it loose and take it out and your done. For the Driver side, it takes a skinny T27 to remove the two star bolts, then just disconnect the horn red clip and ground and install new airbag. The module is located under the passenger seat, underneath the carpet. Kinda stupid but thats where its at. You also need to replace the front impact sensor located behind the grille on the back side of the metal bar to each side. Follow the hood latch down. Also just to make sure, you know to disconnect the battery before you do all this. You don't want new airbags to accidentally deploy.
remove phillips scew and the door handle. remove padded arm rest on the door by lifting it up, and remove 2 screws. You can use a panel tool to remove the plastic toggle like pins holding the panel border in. Be as gentle as possible they may break due to becoming brittle.
The book says 1. remove power accesory switch panel by using suitable flat blade tool at front. 2. Disconnet electrical connections.
3. pry door handle plug by using small flat bladed tool
4.remove door trim handle mounting screws
5. remove door trim panel from retainers.Start at rear bottom corner and pry outward.
6. remove door panel.
KD does make a tool that will properly pry the door panel away from reainers. KD 3705 You might get by with a screwdriver.
One other thing you may need to have the window down to get the panel to come off. You will have to lift up on it once it is loose from the fastners.
Hope this helps you out.
