Typically, there are a few hidden screws right on the arm rest/grab handle. There may be a few hole plugs that need to be removed to access the screws.
After all of the screws are removed, pull the panel away from the door slightly to release it from the push pins, then lift up slightly and it should come off.

Remove rear door panel

Usually, those panels are held on by plastic fasteners. In order to pull the panel off, use a putty knife, or something flat that you can get between the panel and the door. A quick prying motion as you go around the perimeter of the panel should pop those plastic fasteners out of the holes in the door they go into. This will ruin the plastic fasteners, but they are not designed to be re-used. Take one down to the aut parts store, and the should have replacements in stock.

'95 Ford Crown VIctoria left rear door motor runs but window will not go up and down.

It sounds like the power window motor is still running but you have a problem with the regulator arm. If you remove the door trim panel and water shield you can have a look to see where it has been disconnected from the motor or if the regulator arm itself is broken.

'96 crown vic driver side door handle feels loose, is there a spring in it ? or does the whole handle have to be replaced?

You did not specify inside or outside, but they both have springs. the spring is part of the handle assembly. Trim panel must be removed. There are a couple of big screws holding the arm rest on and spring clips around the outside diameter. Pry carefully with a screwdriver at each clip.

How do i remove and replace the rear window on the passenger side. cant get door panel apart

Remove arm rest, remove window crank if it has one, remove all screws if there are any, then just pull to release clips. When you have everything loose, you'll have to lift it straight up to get the top released from the door.

How do I remove the inner door panel on a 96 ford crown vic without damage?

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

Under armrest are two large philips screws. remove these and the panel will fall off.

Alternatively, one screw may be acccessed from the top down on the arm rest, remove small access circle, or tray insert.

Door panel

Depends on what door trim you are trying to replace. If you are trying to replace the door trim on the front doors you need to remove two screws from behind the casing around the door handle and then remove a screw from the bottom left of the door and then there will be a screw on the left of the door as high as the arm rest on the door. Finally pull up on the door panel and out to remove the panel. Remove the harnesses and you are complete.

If you are trying to remove the rear doors you need to remove a screw from the bottom of the door again near the left side then remove the screw from behind the casing that surrounds the door handle. Finally pull up on the door panel and out to remove the panel. Remove the harnesses and you are complete.

Rh door panel

1. Remove the philips screw in the plastic trim by the mirror and remove the trim piece.
2. Using a flat blade screw driver gently pry up the front of the panel holding the window and door lock switches. This pulls the assembly out of the spring clamp. Pull it up and forward to remove it from the arm rest.
3. Remove the two philips screws holding the switches to the trim piece.
4. Find the two screws holding the arm rest. They're at the junction of the arm rest and the switch assembly. Only the one going into the door needs to be removed.
5. Gently pry the trim piece from the door handle. There are two spring clamps, one in the front and one in the rear of this plastic piece.
6. There is a hidden phillips screw that needs to be removed. It's located at the inside bottom rear corner of the door panel. It's hidden in the carpet trim.

After this last screw is removed the door panel can be lifted straight up and off. Feed the cable harness through the hole and your're done.
