How do you remove the door panel?

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu and I am replacing the passenger side power mirror. I have detached mirror already but the electric cord runs way down behind the door panel. How do you remove the door panel??

All GM's cars and trucks are relatively the same. U just need a few tools to remove the panels without damage. one is a tool called a button popper.
1. there will be a screw inside where the door handle is. u need to remove this .
2 starting from the top left go around the outside the panel to see if there and screws holding the panel on.
3. starting with the bottom left insert the tool and lift up on the panel. u should here a pop when u lifted it enough. next goto to the bottom right. and do the same thing.
4. grab both bottom pats and gently outwards.. if its not popping as u are pulling the panel dont force it to do it. check to make sure there are no other screws hidden anywhere. (inside little plastic covers. the center area) repeat the procedure
5. when the panel is loose, pull out slightly and push upwards. this will separate the panel from the door and glass.
u can then see where the electrical connections are and complete the part u are doing.

Need to replace Mirror Assembly, 03 suburban


Your going to have to remove the inside door panel to get to the three bolts that hold the out side mirror assembly. Once you have the door panel off you'll see the three bolts that hold the mirror assembly, just un-bolt and un-clip the wire harness to the electric/heated mirror. To install the new mirror assembly, just do everything in reveres. Go to Auto Zone and by extra door panel clips, there is a good chance of breaking some of the retainer clips and Auto Zone will have the step by step instructions to replacing the mirror assembly and the removal to the door panel. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.

Need to replace passenger side mirror of 2004 Chevy Malibu max


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. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
