There is a half moon key that is directly behind the handle you cannot see it it is behinfd the handle and not the plastic washer I slid a credit card just behind the handle and into the groove and turned the crank it popped right out, then simply pull the hadle off. You cannot see the moon key but it is there. Good Luck

Thought door was frozen shut on 96 grand am se so pulled it open and now it won't close latch not engaged and door lines up but won't stay latched shut....


The latch may already be latched like it is closed. You can take a screw driver and put it.. where the latch engages Slightly pry outward agianst the latch while pulling on the door handle. That should release the latch. If you continue to have the problem than the latch will have to be replaced because there is a plastic piece that may be worn out.You will have to remove the door panel to replace the latch. They sell a book on that car that will explain how to remove the door handle(at O'rielly).

My manual roll up/down window does not work. How do I fix it. how do I get the panel off ? Do I need to take off the roll up down handle to get the door panel off, if so how do I take the handle off?...


you do need to remove the door handles to remove the door trim panel, if it has arm rests on the panel look for 2 or 3 plastic plugs which only press in and are easy to remove with a blade, if they are not present the arm rest may be part of the trim as one unit.
the winder handle may have a spring clip behind the handle and the trim, if that is the case you will need a special tool to remove the clip. also check for any screws that may be holding the panel to the door, when all screws etc are removed just lever the panel away from the door with a flat blade or screwdriver. hope this info helps

You need to start by removing the inner door panel, Remove screws that hold door pull and inside release handle. There are multiple plastic clips that have to be popped out. Use screwdriver but a trim clip removal tool works better.(Lisle tools part #35400). Once panel is loose unhook elecrical connectors to panel, peel back plastic vapour barrier, access to all latch parts, rods window regulator , etc is now available.

Need to change door speaker, cant get the door paneling off nor the manual window roller upper off.


Take a flat screwdriver or other similar flat tool,gently pry between the window handle and door panel,you should just be able to see the clip that holds it on to the metal shaft of the window gear,you'll need a pair of needle nose pliers or a flat screwdriver to pull it off,to put it back on you put it on the widow handle and just pop it on the metal shaft.Hope this helps.

Taking door panel off


If you have manual windows, remove the window crank handle. Then remove the screw from the trim around the door handle and pry the trim from the door. If you have power locks, disconnect the lock connector from the trim and set it aside. Now remove the panel screws from the bottom of the door (either four or five). You should now be able to pull the panel away from the door at the bottom and then lift it up and away. Once the panel is removed from the door, disconnect the speaker connector.
