Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado
How do I get the driver side door panel off to check for door ksy lock that is missing
The door panel has 3 or 4 screws. One behind door pull handle, one underneath the door lock/power window pad, and one maybe around the door release handle. The last two have metal retainer clips that have to be gently pryed up to remove. The door now just relies on J hangers to hold it on. Lift up gently. Remove electrical connectors and you have it off.
To reinstall you must hang the door while ensuring that the manual door lock wire is in its slot and reverse the process.
Be careful when removing any panel with the metal clips. Use wide putty knives or prybars to spread out the stress and make sure u get as close to the clip as possible before you apply pressure. If it still doesn't budge you missed a screw.
The electrical connections usually have simple locking tabs and then you wiggle them apart (sometimes a pocket screwdriver comes in handy). If they have red tabs, you might have to slide them first.
