SOURCE: Door Panel removal

remove all visable screws from panel and arm rest. Arm rest should come off. Use a flat thin tool or piece of metal and slip it between the panel and the metal door frame. Slip it in about 2 inches,. Slide it back or forth til you hit a stop. That should be a plastic pop in.twist metal tool to pull panel away from the door. It should pop away from door frame. Don't overdo it if it doesn't come out. try another spot. once you get one loose, you can tell how to get the others out. Once panel is loose push it upwards to get top lip out of window bottom. If it has power windows,disconnect plug. If it has manual windows, you will have to remove the window crank There is a snap ring behind window crank that has to be removed.push in on panel by window crank and you can see the ring.

SOURCE: how to remove front passenger side interior 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

SOURCE: need to remove door panel passenger. 1999 chevy

Hello, I can help you with this.
Look toward the front bottom and remove that screw, then there is one at the armrest, then if you have manual windows use a hooked tool or a special door handle removal tool to release the retaining clip on the inside of the crank handle. With power windows, use a small screwdriver and carefully pry up on the switch assembly and unplug the connectors. remove that triangle shaped plastic piece at the top of the door trim, it just comes straight out, ( use a small screwdriver or putty knife to gently pry it out from the edge ) , once you are sure you have found all the screws, start at the bottom of the panel and pry it out, when the fasteners are out lift the panel up.

My 98 Burb door handle just broke off - after being 'difficult to open' for a couple weeks. I guess this is common for that type. Order a new one online - I just did. They're cheap (under $20). Then you'll have it on hand when it breaks off. There will be one rivet to drill out to replace the assembly.

Passenger door handle broke of the outside of Nissan pathfinder, now the door wont open from the inside or out. how can we get the door open?

Remove the door's inner (interior) panel and inspect the trailing edge of the inside of the door. You should be able to see the door linkage from both the inner door handle and (what's left) of the outer handle (try moving the inner handle to see how the linkage is routed. I suspect that when the outer handle broke, its linkage dropped onto the inner handle's linkage and jammed it. With a long screwdriver, try moving the inner handle linkage to release the door latch and then replace the outer handle and its linkage (a salvage yard may be the best source and a Mitchell body repair manual should show hoe the linkage is routed and attached. Good luck.

Passenger door stuck shut, need to access fuse panel for other electrical problem. It feels like the linkage is snapped somewhere behind the interior panel. Any tricks before I cut into the panel to access...

Don't cut the panel. You can pull the panel away from the door starting at the bottom. You will have to remove screws holding the arm rest and door handles off to remove the panel completely. The panel will snap back into place after you have repaired the linkage for the latch.
