No special tools and you don't have to remove the panel. the part is available at the dealer for about $8 because it's a common problem.

SOURCE: 2003 ford thunderbird how do you remove inner 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

just a standard screwdriver...
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.

How do I remove the door panels from a 1991 Pontiac convertible


WINDOWS
1991 Pontiac Sunbird






One piece trim panel is used on styles with standard trim. The custom trim has an upper metal trim panel. The one piece trim hangs over the door inner panel across the top and is secured by clips down the sides and across the bottom. It is retained by screws located in the areas of the top front of the panel assembly.

Remove all door inside handles.

Removing a window crank handle (with a retaining clip inside the handle) without a special tool can be a problem. An alternative method is to take a clean shop towel and wedge it between the window crank handle and the door panel. Move it up, while pulling it from left to right, as in a sawing motion working the clean shop towel until the retaining clip comes free.

Remove the door inside locking rod knob.
Unfasten the screws inserted through the door armrest and pull the handle assembly into the door inner panel or armrest hanger support bracket.
On styles with remote control mirrors assemblies, disengage the end of the mirror control cable from the bezel on the standard trim, or from the upper trim panel on the custom trim. On custom trim, remove the upper trim panel.
On styles with power window or door lock controls located in the door trim panel, disconnect the wire harnesses at the switch assemblies. On the four door sedan and the two door hatchback, remove the switch cover by pushing down at the switch area and pulling down at the bottom of the cover. The switch and base may be removed from the trim with the cover removed.
Remove the remote control handle bezel screws.
Unfasten the screws used to hold the armrest to the inner panel.
Remove the screws and plastic retainers from the perimeter of the door trim using tool BT-7323A or equivalent and a screwdriver. To remove the trim panel, push the trim panel upward and outboard to disengage from the door inner panel at the beltline.
On styles with an insulator pad fastened to the door inner panel, use tool J-21104 or equivalent to remove the fasteners and the insulator pad.
On styles with the water defector held in place by fasteners, use tool BT-7323A or equivalent to remove the fasteners and the water deflector.
On styles with the armrest bracket riveted to the inner panel and installed over the water deflector, drill out the armrest bracket rivets using a 3 / 16 in. (5mm) drill bit.

Tilt the front edge of the glass downward to locate the glass in the door.
Apply pressure rearward and snap the glass rear guide into the rear run channel.
Lower the glass to about 3 in. (76mm) above the beltline and install the widow regulator roller to sash channel.
Run the glass to the full up position.
Place the front glass retainer in position and install the bolts.
Check the window to make sure it operates correctly, then install the remaining trim parts.

How to fix a loose wing mirror freelander


If it's loose from the door, you need to remove the inner door panel to access the screws that hold the mirror in place on the door itself. To remove the inner door panel may simply involve removing some screws, but some models require a special upholstery tool to loosen the panel fron the clips. Once the panel is loose, tighten the mirror and replace the inner panel. Be cautious with door switch wiring!

    Window dropped into door in 1990 cutlass calais


    The temporary quick fix is to **** the window up and have a helper jam in wooden wedges inside the car, between the bottom of the window and the door slot. That will buy you some time, but won't solve your problem. The interior door panel will need to be removed and the window regulator assembly replaced. You will need a special forked tool for prying the door panel off, as well as new plastic fasteners. The old ones cannot be reused. If you want to tackle this job, first invest in a shop manual for your car, then the special pry bar (available at most auto parts stores), and new fasteners. (Count them after you remove the panel). Then remove the inner seal/sound deadener material and set aside. When you do the deed, be very careful not to cut yourself. The inner door skin has very sharp edges around the access holes. Locate and remove the nuts that secure the window regulator assembly to the inner door skin, then work it out through the largest access hole. A new window regulator is available through any GM dealer's parts counter. Reinstall in reverse order. Good luck.
