How to remove REAR interior door panel? Problem

How to remove REAR interior door panel? Problem is to gain access to chrone window sill strip on exterior. Apparently a fastener/clip has popped off and chrome strip is sticking up on end closest to front seat. (Rear driver's side door) We have disasembled restored many 60's classic Mopars, but do not want to damage anything on this Cadillac, assuming that the assembly is much different.

Thanks,
Steve roberts

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

Window doesnt roll up or down i can hear motor whenever i touch the interior button but i believe the regulator is shot


Could be the window has come off of the mount..some cars these are glued on...I have found that the 3M super weather strip adhesive works well(it's black in color). Other cars these are riveted on. Another possible casuse would be that the gears are not meshing or that the regulator came off it's track. Anyway, you will need to remove the interior parts of the door panel to gain access to see what's going on.

Power window motor replacement. window in down position


Normal 0 Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locateand remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they maybe hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, thendisconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snapin clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as closeto, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the doorpanel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from thedoor. Once you gain access to the interior of the door, you can remove your window regulator and re-position it, or replace it so it works.
Install in reverse.

I have to replace the power window motor on my BMW x5. I cant get the door panel off becasue of the built in window shades. any help?


Hi Racegas, I am assuming you need to take off one of the rear door panels. The 1/4 glass sunshade needs to be removed to gain access to a hidden screw.If you are looking at the sunshade from inside of the car. Lower the window, and look at the op of the shade assembly on the inside. You will see a square looking hole. Using a small pocket screw driver, or equivalent, insert the screwdriver into the hole and pry upwards. Pull the assembly to you at the same time. The clip that holds the assembly in place is pretty stout. You may want to shine a flashlight inside the hole to get a better idea of how far to pry the retaining clip up. Just in case you need to know, there are 2 screws under the trim strip that is adjacent to the release handle and one toward the bottem of the door near the interior pocket.
