How to remove the inside front seat passenger door panel

Takes a special tool you can get at any autoparts store.
Remove the handles etc and then use the tool to pull the retaining clips that hold the panel on. If you don't use the tool you will damage the door panel.

Rear passanger window fell off track

First you need to remove the door panel, which usually is just a few philip head screws or 10 mm socket sizedbut before you try pulling if your car has a tweeter/audio on a corner of the window make sure sure you remove that first very carefully you don't want to force since it is only held by its on clips... Then once you are ready to remove the door panel start by inserting a flat head screw driver in between the metal and the plastic pannel.

Then star opening it in a uniform manner only start opening from side till you open it since it has a bunch of plastic clips going all around the pannel to hold it on the metal.

once it is open you might need a rachet, a 10mm or 12mm socket and an extension for thet rachet.
Look for about 2-3 round holes enough to fit the socket in connect the power and psition the screwns of the control arm holding the glass and lossen the screws so tha glass can be pulled out its better and recommended to be done by two persons one holding the glass and one removing the screws.and then when the glass is pulled out all the way out is easier to re-aling it and as well one person pushes down and holds the glass the othe one makes sure from the insid panel area that the glass is going on its channel/u shaper rubber all the way....sets the screws back of once is well positioned start tightening the screws back on...and test it with the swich once is done, if stays in the track it means that you succeeded and your control arm is in good working condition and as boost up put some kind of lube on its track from up to down....And if it comes off the track againg you might need to replace the control arm which is that piece that holds the glass with the screws on it...

and to star putting the door pannel back on start by aligning it on the top , make sure that that ruber that keeps touching the glass gets in all the way and then just make sure that all the clips holding the pannel are all attached to the pannel and so just start pushing the pannel against the metal and it shoul clip once is well positioned.then just put the screws you took off the pannel and you should be don....don't forget to carfully clip back the and connect the tweeter window if has one....and're done.

Replace window motor on 1997 del sol

Remove the door handle with one #2 phillips screw, push forward. Push the 2 plasic clips on the release handle and the lock rod by rotating them away from the open end of the clip (clockwise for drivers side, counterclockwise for passenger side). Pull the lock rod and relese out of the clips. Remove the phillips screw in the bottom of the door grab handle. Remove the small black plastic piece on the upper forward corner of the door panel. Remove door panel, should be aproximately 10-12 clips. Once off, you'll see the window motor. Remove the outer window trim. Yes, you WILL break all the clips. I've not had much sucess no matter how careful I am. Use a 10mm wrench or socket to remove the window from the window regulator. You'll see 2 white plastic wedges with 10mm head bolts in them. Pull the window out of the track. If needed, loosen or remove the rear guide track. There also are two 10mm bolts holding the guide rail in. Remove the windoe regulator and motor assembly with (I believe) 3 10mm bolts. Once on the bench, remove the motor from the regulator and reinstall!

Removing a door panel on a 1988 chevy C15 truck

There should be a couple of screws on the arm rest that you need to remove and probably one on the door handle then you need to find something to pry the panel off with, without breaking the plastic clips. They make a special tool for this that you can buy for just a few dollars at any auto parts store. If attempting to do it without the right tool be careful not to break the clips.

The window keep sliding down. What should I check first. Do the window motor need to be replaced?

I have had two Roadmaster Wagons (we love 'em) with the same problem. The problem I found was only in a plastic clip that the actuator arms snaps into. I have not found an easy solution to replace, but it can be done. Take off the door panel and lower the window some (with help of a friend) so you can see the track at the bottom of the window. In that track there are plastic clips with a socket that a ball from the actuator arms snap into. You will probably see that one (or both of those) is broken. You need to slide out the old clip (you will need to bend out the indentation on the metal track so you can get it out) and slide in a new clip from a salvage yard. Now the hard part is pressing the ball from the actuator arm back into the socket of the new clip. I found I needed a special pair of pliers that opened wide enough without requiring the handle to open too far. After it is snapped back in, you should be ready to put the door panel back on and hit the road.

I need to replace the passenger side front window on a 1980 cadillac fleetwood. How do I remove the door panel correctly? Where do I go from there?

You need to remove all screws first. Any screw visible. Remove the chrome cup from the door handle area, the door strap, and the master control switches. Can't remember if there are screws on the lower end of the door panel or if there is plastic clips. If there are plastic clips, go to an auto parts store and get the tool for it. It looks like the tool you use to remove dandelions...flat tip with a slot in it. Slip it between the door panel and the door itself and pop the panel out. Try and get behind the clips. Once you have it unscrewed and unclipped, pop the panel might have to jiggle it a little to get the seal off of the glass.

Once you have the panel off, just take a look at the glass and the channel it is sitting in. It is pretty straight forward.

Door panel removal

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. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. 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
