SOURCE: Removing Door Panel for MPV with door Stuck

I think the 04 should be very similar to the 03. Here is my fix for the 03

I just fixed this same problem. It happened to me 3 different times in a month so I got good at it. Before you dive into removing your door try this. Pull the door handle and release it letting it snap back several times. The problem is a half open door latch that won't let the door unlock. Do this as aggressively as you can to attempt to get the latch to return to its original position. Check the door lock between flicks.

Ok, if that didn't work, here is how to remove the door.
1. Remove the screw behind the door latch, you will have to pop the plastic cover off first.
2. Remove the rubber insert in the door handle
3. Remove the screw that is now visible
4. Now remove the window/lock control module, the back is free but the front has a plastic lip so lift the back up and pull towards the back of the van.
5. Remove the clips that attach to the lock and to the window controls (these can be a pain)
5. (Optional) Remove the bracket that held the window/lock control module

At this point your door is basically free, it is only held in place with plastic clips that can be easily forced off. If your door were open you would simple pull the bottom of the door out (hinged at the window) and lift it off. But since we can't pull because the door is closed we have to force it out.

From here it is pretty simple. Move the seat all the way back and tip the seat way back. Lift the door panel straight up. You will be breaking 2 plastic clips from the rear part but once you do it just pulls out. This is not that easy because the space is limited but just keep pulling and force the rear end of the door panel past the b-pillar. Once you do this it is free.

Have fun and try to keep the black gook from getting everywhere.

Oh, to fix the door lock just oil/grease it and manually move the mechanism several times.

Once you have removed the inner door panel you unbolt the motor and regulator (They should come togther) and install.

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 can readjust the window mechanics.

SOURCE: X5 Door Panel Removal

there are 4 torx T-15 screws, one in the rear map pocket, one under the air bag logo plastic clip, one under the wood trim (pry the trim off carefully), and one holding the door handle assembly (also revealed when you remove the wood burl cover). Pick up a pry tool at autozone, about 5 bucks to pry the clips out without breaking

How do i replace a driver side window regulator and motor for a 2005 mazda mpv?


Remove the door panel, disconnect the window from the regulator. Push the window all the way up. Secure it either with duct tape, or prop good with screwdriver. Do not let it fall down. You should be able to work inside the door now to get the bolts and screws out to remove the motor and regulator.

Mazda MPV: how to raise power window manually?


Hi,
I just had this problem with my driver door window. I took the door panel off and discovered that the motor was burnt out by testing with a meter.

I called around and found a motor at a junkyard for $135 dollars! I didn't bother looking at the price for a new one yet. Budget is very tight right now.

Like you I just wanted a way to get the window up until I could get around to replacing the part.

You can find out what I did with pictures here.

This is for the front driver side window. I did the same for the rear passenger side window and the steps are fairly similar.

There are few less steps to getting the panel off, but it was a little trickier to get the panel back on. (The key was to pull the bottom out and start at the front: Lower the forward part of the panel over the top of the frame first - while pushing firmly at the top of the panel).

The steps for disengaging the motor and raising the window with the motor re-engaged are almost the same. The only differences are that the motor is in a different position in the frame. It's down near the bottom of the frame - and seemingly inaccessible at first glance.

However, if you disconnect the motor from the frame and let it dangle on the regulator wires, you can pull it all the way through to the other port in the frame. That way, it turns out that, it was even easier to work with than the driver window motor.

Hope this helps.

Window Issues


Take the door apart and then take the window and push it up by hand then take a piece of wood (2X4) that is cut the distance from the bottom inside of the door to the bottom of the window while pushed up. put the piece of wood under the window inside the door and put the bottom of the 2X4 on the inside bottom of the door. That will keep you window up until you can get the window motor/window regulator fixed properly
