Question about 2002 Chevrolet Malibu
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.
