If you take off the outer door skin you will have to replace it. They are folded the welded around the inner frame. Generally a door skin removal tool is used to cut/grind the skin off. There are several youtube videos on this process as it is difficult to explain step by step.
drivers window? trackers come in 4doors.so?
manual or power windows?
ive got 4 (trackers) and 3 are manual windows.
is window stuck at top, bottom or part way?
lacking these facts (inputs) prevents, answers.
screws /nuts are inside all doors.
or thieve would have a hay day.
and where else could it be,, really?>
when lost like this youtube has like 10,000 people ripping
door skins off, all are near same. skins.
The skin is only spot welded in a few spots other then that is just a
sealer all around the skin holding it and protecting it at the seam. Remove the door and inner panel.
Drilled out the few spot welds.
Wire wheeled the exposed sealer around skin on the inside door jamb.
Use scraper to slowly work the folded edge up 90 degrees.(anything slim and small would work) (With the old one you could just grind the edge off.)
Carefully pulled skin off.
Few minutes of dolly and hammering around the now new door skin lip to
create a perfect 90 degree shape all around with the edge just peeled
Apply sealant to new door shell edge.
Slide skin on and in exact location needed.
Clamp skin all the way around.
Remove a few clams on one side, start hammer and dolling extra lip back
around the shell lip, when done put clamps back on, and keep going down
the line in this order.
Let clams sit as long as the sealer you have used suggests.

same problem with mine, took us awhile but we got it. you need to fold down the back seat, snap the fake truck piece on either side, pop off the door skin, starting under the convertible top bar that runs across the door, and there it is. we managed to pop off the fake trunk thingy without breaking it, it hooks on either side but you can still use it after-wards even if you do break it. good luck
first you remove the wheel then the break caliper then remove the locking hubs just remember to lay out the parts in order a special tool is called for but this job can be done without it you have to use a small cold chisel and a hammer to tap the large nut counter clockwise to remove, you can then remove the outer bearing and the rotor and hub assembly look on the back side reomve the bearing seal and inner bearing be sure to pack your new bearings with grease before you reassemble . takes less than an hour.
You can easily get a complete door from an auto wrecker that will be far better than a reskinned door. I didn't think they even did that anymore. You may even be able to get one the same as your existing color so that you wouldn't even have to worry about paint fade differences. Most auto wreckers are on a network and they can put your request out to the whole area and likely come up with one. If the used door route is not an option, then "new" is the only way I would go.
