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. 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

My saturn vue 2008 hatch i add open & in locked mode, it xoes not respond to key ?


GM usually puts a mechanical release for there electric doors, but it seems they did not for that model. And the door panel is impossible to remove without destroying it in the process. BUT you can pull it loose in the middle and gain access (very carefully) without breaking the panel.

I suggest seeking some one that has experience in this matter to solve the issue, as inexperience may cause your rear panel to be broken appart.

Removel of door panel


You will need to remove the outside panel to service the window or window regulator or the window motor. The outer panel is held in place with a dozen or so bolts that a male torx socket is needed to remove. You will first remove the trim piece that is on the upper back of the outside of the door, two screws. Then remove the window seal on the outside of the window. Then remove the outer door handle. Then remove the torx bolts and lift up on the door skin, you may have to wiggle a little to get it to pop.

The video is for an S-Series but the principal is the same. Good luck!

When I try to start my 2003 saturn vue the key is hard to turn unless I push brake very hard and turn the steering wheel. What's the problem?


My 2004 Saturn Vue had the same problem. I thought the ignition had to be changed and I drove the Vue a long time with the key hard to turn and pushing it in before turning it. I mentioned it to a Saturn Dealer mechanic while having warranty work done. He told me a new key had to be made using the key code (located on the inside panel on the driver door). They made it and it totally fixed the problem. I think any GM dealer can do that for you.

I have 2004 saturn vue and the rear door latch on the passenger side will not latch shut. i have taken it apart and it looks like a small black box.where could i find a cheap one, or an easy solution to...


It sounds like the the linkage, actuator (power locks), or the mechanism has broken or become dislodged. 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. Pull back the weather seal and you should see everything and hopefully see the cause.

Saturn 200 sl1 sedan.....electric door windows do not come up?


First, try using different switch to rule out switch. If another switch does the same, than the window motor most likely is worn and will need to be replaced. To do this, you will need to remove all screws to door panel, and pry off panel. Than you can gain access to to motor..

Front drivers side window will not go up or down?


Your window is powered by a reverse polarity electric 12 volt motor. To raise, the polarity travels in one direction. To lower, it is reversed. Gain access to the motor by removing the door panel and locate two wire connection to the motor. Connect two leads to the motor that you know are one each, positive current and negative current Motor should run in one connected way and also run in the other connected way. If motor doesn't run, motor is bad..
