  • In the door handle "finger well" remove the plastic cover with a screw driver.
  • Remove 2 screws (they may be torx or regular hex bolts).
  • Remove Philips screw from behind the inside door opener lever.
  • slightly and slowly, pull back on the plastic triangle that is on the back side of the outside rear view mirror. It will stay attached to the door panel, but you need to release the catch nipple from the door.
  • Now, pull out on the edges all around the bottom, front, and back of the door panel ( you may need a putty knife or something similar to get your fingers in and start pulling).
  • once the door is loose, lift up slowly on the door panel until it is free of the door (don't pull too hard or far as there are still 3 wire bundles attached).
  • Unclip the door light plug on the back and the locks and windows switch plugs towards the front.
  • Reverse for install.

SOURCE: How do I remove the front door panel to replace the mirror

Normal 0 Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.

If you don't have power windows you will have to remove the manual window crank. It is held in place by a clip on the back side of the base. To remove the clip, you will need a small hook (kind of like a knitting needle). Put the hook in behind the base, and grab the clip and pull it off. To replace it, slide the clip back on the window crank, and snap it back on the door.

SOURCE: 99 Buick LeSabre, how do I remove driver side door panel to replace power window motor?

You'll need to 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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

SOURCE: how to remove the left front door panel on my 2006 Buick Lucerne

Hi Dear Lov, Remove the plugs from the arm rest and behind them there will be deep seated screws. Push in a long screw driver and remove them. Next lift the window control buttons and when removed from the housings disconnect the electrics. (Keep the switches handy) next take a flat blade tool and starting at the bottom of the door, insert the blade between the panel and the door and gently pull the blade towards you. When the studs pop move to the next until all are released. Lift the panel off and then refit the switch to the cables. Reach inside the door and feel for the operating rods which extend from the handle to the latch mechanism. at each end you will feel plastic clips which will rotate away from the rods when pushed in the same plain. These clips beak easily so be careful. It is worth getting a mirror and flash light and studying them before trying to release them. Check both sides as the mechanism may be different at each end. Once disconnected you will notice two hole opposite the exterior door handle, through which a socket spanner fitted to an extension will fit. Remove the nuts and then remove the handle from the outside. When fitting everything back together make sure the rods are correctly fitted. You may find you need to lift or lower the window, or maybe remove it completely to do the job. Regards John

How do I remove the door panel of a 2011 Buick Regal, driver's side door?


Step by step instructions follow with pictures.

Using a plastic trim tool, remove the aluminum piece on the door handle and the two bolts underneath. (T15 I believe.)
: Using same trim tool, remove the plastic trim behind door handle and remove screw using same T15 as before.
Step 3: Same trim tool again, remove the door panel, bottom to top and lift off of the window channel. Watch for the metal clips to fall. Some will. Two go on the door panel and two go on the door itself.

Dont no how to remove left side drive door panel 1999 buick regal


there are screws you have to remove. make sure you've found and removed all of them. then the door is held in with clips from the back side. work a pry bar or a long flat screw driver around the edges to pop them loose then you should be able to get your hands behind it to find the other clips. in some cases the handles have to come off before the panel can be removed

1998 buick regal gs heat blows hot on passenger side and cold on the driver side.


Same problem on my 98 Regal GS; remove glove box, locate the blend door actuator, (black odd shaped box with metal "ring"). Remove the box and manually turn the blend door shaft it was attached to. If you get cold air, it's the actuator you removed. About 30-40 dollars.

Trying to remove the door panel on the rear driver's side door of a 1991 Buick Regal Limited to check the window motor. Removed 3 screws, popped all the plastic holders around edges of door, but there...


Are you talking about the door handle hinge? The door handle and hing do not need to be removed to remove the door panel. Remove the door handle bezel and the hole will be big enogh to come straight off with the door panel. See the picture below. This is the only diagram supplied in the service manual. It shows the bezel for the driver's door but it states that the rear door is similar. If you allready have the bezel off, or you are not talking about the door handle hinge, I don't know what you are talking about when you say "hinge thing"

The actuator door on the driver's side is out of position and needs to be reset. Remove the negative battery cable for 1/2 hour to reset the computer. Start the HVAC system and you should be able to hear the door adjusting itself and cold should come out of the driver's side vent.
