A philips head screwdriver, a shoe lace for catching the clip on the door handle and a bit of patience to do that and you should have no problem. there is a screw behind the handle that opens the door, one in the handle in the middle of the door and three around the speaker once you pull off the cover of the speaker you will see the three holes, on at the top and two bottom right and left as well, once all five are taken out just gently pry the door swab(panel) away from the frame and you should hear some clips releasing but they are nothing to worr about. then lift up the door swab and the trim should come up and away from the door. if you follow this you should not have a problem getting the panel off :)

94 civic sedan rear passenger door wont open inside or outside

This is a common fail on Honda civics, as a small tab breaks off of the door handle assembly inside the door. The door handle assembly needs to be replaced, and the part is about $75 . Often you need to remove the rear lower seat cushion to get the door panel off.

You are going to have to remove the inside door cover and get at it from that side---remove the door panel inside--they do sell tool kits especially for this task so not to damage clips etc.

How to remove a 1999 civic se left door panel

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. 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

Passenger door won't open from inside on 98 S70

You will need to remove the door panel from the inside and look for any missing links or bent parts that are causing the problem. Use a trim tool to get the panel off. Unscrew the arm rest. Have a magnet on a telescoping wand hand to fish any parts that fell to the bottom of the door out.

Driver's side window regulator

I just replaced the regulator in my mother's 98 civic ex and didnt need any special tools. I do recommend replacing the glass run channels on either side of the window. I have replaced the regulator twice and it is still having problems as I haven't replaced the run channels. If not replaced very soon I can see myself replacing the regulator...yet again!
