Question about 1999 Pontiac Bonneville
I broke my mirrow on right side of my car, a 99 pontiac bonneville and I can't get my arm rest off to get the door panel off to replace my mirror. How do I get it off?
I've done this twice. 1/2 the pain is getting the door panel off.
At the point where the arm rest meets the door panel by the door handle there will be a small section where a little light shines on the door handle. you need to put a small screw driver in behind the light an pry this gently away from the door panel. this will reveal a small bolt that must be removed.
Behind the door handle itself there is a small panel that must be pried off as well. you will see a slot on the front of this to stick your screw driver and again push in as you pry back this piece of plastic. this will reveal a screw that must be removed also. just below the door handle, you must also pry off the lock lever as it sits on a rod that work the mechanism to lock/unlock the door.
If you have electric windows, there is a slot in the mounting bracket that you can stick your screw driver in a little and pry this up and out as you must remove the window and lock wires to get the panel off.
Now, there are a series of plastic push clips around the bottom of the door panel. You should be able to stick your fingers between the door panel and the door to pull these away from the door. Don;t use a screw driver for this as you will prob tear the panel. When you get it away from the bottom, do a curl with the door panel from the bottom as it is clipped on the top by the window.
Also, search for "door panel removal on the 1999 Pontiac bonneville" and you may be able to get some pics.
hope this helped.
Oh forgot, good luck getting to the nuts that hold on the mirror. you need someone with small hands and some funky wrenches to reach them.
