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.
I'm assuming it's not power window's,you will have to remove to window crank and the door opening latch,on the window crank,there's a clip embedded into crank,you can push door panel in at crank and use a flat head screw driver to push clip off,door handle has to come off,arm rest if you have one,,there are clips holding the panel to door,you can also use a flat head to put in between panel and door and pop loose,you may have to replace clips.After you get panel off ,you will see why the glass won't come up,may be off track.
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.
You need to remove inner door panel by unscrewing the screws on inner door handle and take a flat screw driver wedge it between the panel and door use flash light to see the clips along the sides and lower part of door and pry them free. then look through the inner door cut outs to find window track. Once you see it use ratchet or screw driver and loosen the window free form track. Then carefully remove window.
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
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
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.
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.
