2 sets (total 4) T30 Torx screws need to be removed.
The 2 holding the interior door handle grip / cup.
And then behind where the cup is, there are 2 more, that secure the door panel to the door.

FWIW, there are also 2 philips screws. One at the top, near the mirror. The second at the moveable door handle latch.

Lastly, of course, the standard "pop" sort of fasteners, around the perimeter on the 2 sides and bottom of the door panel. Also, there are 2 light blue plastic alignment posts (that do *not* fasten).

When re-assembling, make *sure* to properly catch / engage the door panel's top black plastic lip into the 3 hidden metal "U" holders, at the very top of the door panel.

There is what is called birds beeks that hold the door panel to the door, they have a tool to pop them out at any auto parts store. You can use a screwdriver but to avoid damage to the panel its best to use the tool, there not that expensive.

General instructions for door panel removal; Door panels are attached to the door frame with clips such as the one above. The ribbed, screw-like part of the clips are inserted into holes in the door frame around the perimeter of the sides and bottom of the panel
Auto Repair Mechanics How to Remove Car Door Panel

The video shows details of door panel removal. First locate all the screws on the door panel, usually at the door handle and door rest. Look for any hidden screws that may be covered with small plastic caps.

After all screws are removed, the side and bottom clips need to be popped out of the door frame. You can purchase a set of trim tools to pop the clips, or you can use flat blade screw drivers and a flat putty knife to pop the clips out. Sometimes the clips break, but they are replaceable. Once the sides and bottom are loose, the top of the panel is loosened by lifting up on the panel, disengaging the panel from the top track on the door frame. Be careful of wiring connectors, which will have to be disconnected to completely remove the panel.

Rear door panel removal:rear door window just fell down oneday and i was told it might just be off the track. it has electric windows


Its not off the track!!
You just lost the holders clipping your window glass piece.
  • Look for screws in door panel or around the speaker vents.
  • If you are sure that the speaker cant be removed without opening the door panel then read this below.
  • Mostly seen near areas like door lever(inside), power window switch set, bottom and each sides of the whole panel.
  • If its manual window, then look for a circle clip in between the winding window lever and the door panel. Plunge screw driver between them a make a gap then look.
  • Assure that all clips or screws which obstacles the removal of the panel.
  • Simply pull the panel from sides towards you

How to remove front door panels in order to fix manually-operated windows [off tracks]. [Can not get window handle to budge. Despite having removed all screws, etc. I can not remove the interior door...


If you have removed all of the screw from around the door handle and ect, there are little plastic clips that also hold the door panel to the door. There is a tool out there to do this that keeps you from breaking the clips but you probably do not have one. You can also take a medium straight screw driver and gently in the bottom corner slip it in there and slowly start to pry the panel lose, as you are doing this look to see where the clips are and get your screw driver behind them to minimize breakage. If you do happen to break them you can go to an auto parts store and get replacements.

Also make sure that in the handle there are a couple places where you have to remove a "cap" to get at the screws.

My driver side window has come off its track on a 2004 chrysler concorde how do I get the window back on track


On the inside trim, you can 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. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to the tracks. You may need to get some replacement clips to remount the window to the track

How do I remove door panel to get to the motor ?


Ive yet seen a jeep window come off track. sounds like your window regulator is broke but hopefully im wrong. anyways, remove all the screws some have cover over them, just remove the cover and youll see some sort of screw. Then pull out and try not to breake the plastic clips that pop into door. its pretty easy once you just look at if for a min. let me know if you have anymore questions about this

Window off track


Looking at the opened door from the inside remove the philips screw near the upper hinge. Pry the speaker grill off with a thin blade putty knife, starting at the bottom left and work to the right. Remove speaker screws and the three screws in the recessed plastic spaces behind. Remove the square covers behind the handle and in the arm rest. Remove the 2 philips screws exposed. Start to pry from the top hinge side between the plastic door panel and the metal door. Work your way around the door until plastic clips release. Once the bottom of the panel and sides are free, lift the panel up and off the door being careful not to pull wiring and door handle mechanism loose. Unplug the as much of the wiring as you can and support the panel so as to not stretch the wiring. Pop the plastic retaining clip on the door handle connecting rod and lift the rod out of the handle. Slowly peel back the vinyl/rubber door cover stuck to the metal door. The window is held in the lower track with two clips that are bolted to the track. Unbolt by raising or lowering the window and using a 10MM socket on the nuts to loosen. Remove the window seal along trhe bottom of the window opening by prying straight up. You can then remove the window and re-epoxy in the lower clips and reassemble window in reverse order.

Window fell off the runner in the door


The door panel has screws on the bottom of the door panel. If there is carpet on the base of the door panel, the holes are hidden within the carpet.

Also, you have to remove the arm rest, typically it has 2 screws holding it to door and plastic push-in door panel clips on the sides. You can use a screw driver to help pop them out.

The door panel, when loose from door, lift up and off. Take your time so you dont break any tabs on the back side.

If the window is falling off the track, there is a small plastic tab that is mounted to glass or track; it slides in the window channel on front and rear tracks.

You can get this part at your local auto parts house, in HELP section.

Replace Driver's side mirror - Jeep Liberty 2002


The door panel has plastic clips that hold it in place also. Put a thin blade screwdriver between the panel and door. Pry the panel away from the door. The panel will make a loud snapping noise, that is the clip coming out of the retaining hole. Sometimes the clips break.
