1) Take off the tweeter (triangular thing). It is simply clipped on and will come off relatively easily. Pinch inward and pull out. 2) Then proceed to roll down the window ALL THE WAY. This will prevent you from scratching or shattering the window if a tool slips. Next, pop off the window and lock control panel (with a flat-head screw driver) off the door panel (it is simply clipped in with 2 metal tabs on each side to hold it in) to reveal the inside of the door and ONE LARGE SCREW. 3) Start to take off the door panel screws. From what I remember, these are the screws and their locations: (in order) a) Small screw holding in door handle cover. (this removes the protective door handle thing)(the protective thing needs to be removed: simply pull on the handle while slipping the cover out.) b) Large screw under the handle of the door. (this will loosen the whole panel) c) Large screw UNDER the reflector plate on the door. You will have to take off the reflector in order to gain access to this screw. CAUTION: the reflector is VERY fragile and can crack easily. (this will loosen the whole panel) d) Large screw right behind the window controls. (this will disconnect the whole panel from the door itself. DO NOT TRY TO REMOVE THE PANEL WITHOUT REMOVING ALL THE SCREWS AND THE PROTECTIVE PLATE!!! 4) Electronic Obstacles...yea...kinda hard to explain: Well, first off, the panel will not be able to come off without disconnecting the door control panel. Since you already popped off the window controls, all you need to do is disconnect the adapter that the wires plug into. On the passenger side, this is easy, simply pinch in on the two connectors and pull out. These "ribbons" may need a bit of convincing, but they DO come off. The driver's side electronics are EXTREMELY complex and are EXTREMELY hard to take off, to tell you the truth, I only rotated the disconnected door 90 degrees which left just enough room to solder and install the speakers. I did this so that I didn't need to disconnect ANY parts of the door controls on the driver's side. I only needed to pop off the window control panel, no disconnection of any wires. (the driver's side wires seem to have more slack than the passenger ones. I found this easy with two people. 5) Now for the hardest part, taking off the door panel itself. The whole panel is held on by white PLASTIC bolts that are ribbed. These bolts can be pretty annoying, but secure the door quite well. First, I started by the tweeter. There should be a small space where you can fit a hand in and start pulling. DO NOT PULL OR TRY TO PULL ALONG THE TOP OF THE DOOR, START YOUR HAND ON THE TOP BY THE TWEETER AND WORK YOUR WAY DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE TWEETER SIDE (while hand still between the panel and the door itself). THEN START PULLING ONCE YOU ARE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR PANEL. As you work your hand down the door, you might here a sound of breaking plastic, this is what you are looking for. The ribbed bolts are being pulled out of their holes. Eventually, once a majorority of a side is out, it will make it MUCH MUCH easier to pull the remaining bolts out. Once you get the hang of hearing the bolts come out, and you are able to get a bigger grip on the panel, the whole door will eventually POP off. Now that it is popped, lift the panel up and it then should come off cleanly.

  • NOTE* - You WILL NEED a Torx wrench to replace the speaker ($4 at home depot)
For re-installation, simply backtrack. Make sure all your electrical connections are solid and the door is connected securely to the door. Attach the door, put screws back in, put handle plate back on, and you're set. Hoped this help, I know I needed this when I took off my door panels.

Driver side door jammed shut


Not to my knowledge. The mechanism you talk about is the wiring inside the door if it has electric locks. The only way is to remove the top of the door panel to access the door latch mechanism then slide it away from the latch. If that don't work let me know

2003 chevy trailblazer driver door controls don't work, interior light won't work when driver door is opened. The other three doors work ok


There two common problems with the driver's door control panel, rain water gets into the module and damages the electrics or the wires in the door boot break or abrade and short out. To check out the control panel itself, take the passenger side panel and hook it up to the drivers side, if everything works, replace the driver's panel.

How do I remove the driver door panel on a 2002 cadillac deville


DOOR PANEL REMOVAL



Its just fitted with few screws and hidden lock clips. The clips are very delicate and can break easily. But no worry, the clips are easily available.

On some vehicle models these screws are hidden. Once the panel is loose, don't just pull it out, there are few wire connectors connected, first disconnect the connector plug, then lift the panel out and keep in safe place for re-installing.

Where is the door module located on a 2003


Remove the driver door panel. You will have to remove the two screws that hold the door closing strap and the one screw behing the interior driver door handle. Gently pull the door panel off by first lifting the panel over the manual lock/ unlock nipple/ shaft. The module is located at the top right corner of the driver door.

Drivers side door on my jeep cherokee will not open from inside


most likely the inner door handle has a broken hooking tab for the rod to the latch plate.most door panels are held in place with a few screws around the door pull handle and arm rest than most of the sides and bottom of the door panel are held by plastic snap clips. with a large straight blade screw driver start at a corner of the door panel , slide the blade of the screw driver under the edge of the panel and lightly pry out untill you lossen up one of the clips than slide along the screw driver to the next clip , keep going till the panel is lossened up.

All of a sudden the driver side window will not roll up.


is it electric windows? if it has electric windows does the passenger window roll up using the switch for it on the passenger door panel? if it works on the passenger door panel and not on the driver's door panel , then your switch on the drivers door panel is bad... replace it.

2000 lx 470 driver door panel


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. 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
