    • L pick
    • Small flashlight
    • Ratchet and socket

        Check out how the door panels are attached to the car. Most panels use screws and bolts but others have snap-in fittings. Gather all the tools you need for removing the door panels. If the panel is attached with screws and bolts, you need a screwdriver or ratchet and socket. Car door panels with snap-in fittings are easily removed with a flathead screwdriver.

        Locate where the screws and bolts are before starting. These are usually found in the arm rest area, along the bottom or sometimes near the door lights.

      • 3

        Roll down the car door window. Begin removing all screws and bolts that hold the door panel onto the car. If your car has snap-in fittings, pry gently on the bottom corner of the door panel until the fittings pop out.

        Remove the power window control panel if your car has power windows. The control panel should pry out easily, and then you unplug the wiring harness from the back and place it to the side.

        Use an L pick and flashlight when locating a manual window crank. Look behind the window crank and slide the pick under the edge of the metal clip that holds the crank in place. Remove the clip and pull the crank off.

        Remove the door handle by unscrewing the small screw located in the center. Gently pull the door handle out until you see the back of the handle and unclip the rod from the door handle. This should remove the handle unless the handle and door lock are attached, then you just unclip the rod from the lock and remove them both together.

        Unscrew the cap off rear upper corner door panel locks. These don't have a rod attaching them to the handle and unscrew separately from the door handle.

        Pop the door panel off after you've removed everything. Gently pry on the bottom edge of the door panel until it releases. Pull out and up to completely remove the door panel.

    The window on my 2004 Ford F-150 fell into the door. How do I take the door apart to put the window back on track?

    There are usually screws holding the door panel in place. Look around the edge of the inner door panel for any screws. There are also some screws under the arm rest on the door. Any items that penetrate the door panel must also be moved out of the way or removed (like window cranks).
    Once you get all screws and obstructions out, the panel moves away from the door and lifts up and away. You may find that the window didn't come off track, but you may need to replace some parts as well.

    I need to take off my door panel to change the speakers in my truck how can i get it over the window crank?

    There is a tool made just for this purpose. Go to any auto parts store
    autozone/advance or napa etc. and ask for a window crank removal tool.
    They cost about $10.00. There is a spring clip between the crank and the door panel. Locate the open end of the clip, and slide the tool between the crank and panel, the clip should pop right off. Be sure not to loose the clip. To put it back , slide the clip over the two slits on the
    crank and push it back on. I hope I was of some help. Good luck.

    97 VW Jetta right rear power window off track

    There should be six or seven allen wrench screws around the edge of the door panels. Loosening these releases the retaining clips inside. You will then want to remove the manual window crank if you have one by laying two fingers flat on the door panel and pushing the ring around the base of the crank sideways. You might have to rotate around this as it only pushes one way. Next you will have to remove the two large golden screws directly under the door panels handle. If you have rear door panel speakers you will have to politely pry off the speaker grill with a flat blade screwdriver and remove the speakers four screws and the wire clip from behind the speaker. You will also have to unscrew the door lock post. Then you should be able to lift the door panel up to release the top lip of it from the door.
