You will need to remove the outside panel to service the window or window regulator or the window motor. The outer panel is held in place with a dozen or so bolts that a male torx socket is needed to remove. You will first remove the trim piece that is on the upper back of the outside of the door, two screws. Then remove the window seal on the outside of the window. Then remove the outer door handle. Then remove the torx bolts and lift up on the door skin, you may have to wiggle a little to get it to pop.

The video is for an S-Series but the principal is the same. Good luck!

Trying to take off the panel to the driver side rear door. How do you take off the door handle to remove the panel.

Removing door panels from auto's are all a little different, but very simular.
1) Locate and remove any, and all screws from the panel(if any, some door panels do not have screws).
2) After removing all screw's, you will want to disingage all of the pop clip's located out of site around the outside edge of the panel. For this you will need a panel and trim removel tool. It looks like screw driver except it has a forked end and is bent at 45% on the tool end. The tool can be priced as high as 40.00 from company's like Snap-on, or as inexpensive as 3.99 from company's like Harbor Freight. After you have the tool, simply place the forked end between panel and door, and gently pry up until you feel the pop clip release. Repeat this process for all clips.
3) Now make sure that you have all screws for things like window cranks removed, and be carefull of power window wire's and switches.
This should free the panel from the door. I hope this helps you.

Need a diagram of how the door panel comes off of a 95 chevy blazer. I need to remove the door panel to fix the lock assembly. Need to know if there are clips at the bottom of the door, or just the screws.

There will always be clips attached to the panel from the inside-after screw removal and window crank removal (window crank on mostly earlier models) You can start at a bottom edge with what i recommend a door panel removal tool-most auto parts store carry these. even if a clip falls out you can reinsert it.Also the door removel tool doubles as a window crank clip remover.

My 1994 vans right side front window does'nt work. I was wondering if you could tell me how to take the door apart to check the power window regulator and motor. The van also has power mirrors.

There is likely a bolt under the arm rest take that out but you need a door panel removel tool to pry the plastic pegs out so you don't brake them or you will have to replace them they brake very easily,it looks like a srew driver with a forked end. and if your switches are on the arm rest you have to pry it out carefully

Dismount door panel. VW Polo Net

Sounds like it is a broken window regulator. You will need to remove the door panel to fix it. Mine broke and I can actually pull the window up and it will stay until the vibrations of the freeway eventually make it slide back down again (this would be a temporary fix of course). Anyways, there are a couple screws behind the door handle I believe, and then some snaps around the edges, and some clips along the window line. You should get a Bentley's manual so you know exactly how to fix the window regular.

Replace power window motor right side

I looked at one earlier and I believe that first obviously that you remove the inner door panel.There are screws all around the outer edge of door panel.Also there are two quarter inch screws that are above the handle in middle of door.Then you peel back carefully the water barrier that is stuck to door.You will see three holes in the centr of door.The screws are golden in color in those holes.I believe they are 9mm or its standard counterpart.You should be able to remove the motor by pulling straight back.Be careful because I believe once you pull it out the window will fall.I'm not sure.Unhook wire connector and reinstallation is reverse of removal.Good lick!!!!I haven't done one yet but I'm going to do one in a bit on a 2002 saBLE.My email is if you have any questions.I don't know much but I can help people with alot of things every once in a while.I hope you get it going.

1997 SL Saturn Headliner Removel

search google for the saturn fourms they had detailed instructions with pics . The short answer is all plastic trim around the top or doors from the windshield to the back window. The top of the dash needs to come off too It just pops off pretty easy . all clips you can see when the trim is pulled back a bit from the bottom and use a screwdriver to pry the clip out or it will break . you need a star wrench set to remove the setbelt bolts. the passenger handle is a pain I cant remember that one .

Fusion door panel removel

There is a fastener behind a circle looking plug behind the inside door handle. Take a small flat screwdriver and pop it off. It will be a torx. The same as the other screws on the door panel. After removing all fasteners start with the bottom of the panel and get your fingers between the panel and pry ou there will be door fasteners that will pop releasing the door. Do this carefully.
