SOURCE: 2005 malibu passengers door in closed position door will not open feels like dod is off how do you open door or remove door panel while door is closed

see if you can't take off a little trim piece around the handle, and try to get the handle out. With luck, the plastic piece at the handle broke, and maybe you can reach in and grab the rod with long nose pliers and tug on it to open the door

Removing LHS front door panel with door closed


you likely wont be able to take the front door panel off with the door closed. they usually have screws along the door panel that help hold it on. they also have plastic clips that hold the panel on and you will need to pull the door panel away from the door before you can get it off.

How to remove door panel from a closed door


It cannot be done without the door open. Door must be open in order to access panel. Make sure you have the special spoon tool to fry open the clips otherwise you are ripping and damaging the paneling unless, you replace it. Good luck.

I have a 1997 ford thunderbird lx and the other day when i went to close the door when i got out it,it wuldnt shut i slammed it a couple times n it still wouldnt shut i really need help because i cant...


Here's something that might help you. Look at the door theres a little hook that grabs the striker on car, hold the door handle "open" and move the hook to the open position try to close the door. That should solve your problem. Hope that helps you.

The driver side door does not unlock - can only (central locking)


Hi:
It is extremely difficult to remove the door panel with the door closed. You mentioned that you can unlock the door with a key, so does the door still open and close once unlocked? You most likely just need to replace the power door lock solenoid, as when they fail, they usually sieze up, and make manual lock unlocking difficult.

How to remove inside door panel passanger side


Remove the screw by the handle that opens the door and the screw by the defrost vent. Then remove the screw that would touch the dash if the door was closed. Then remove the screw in the handle that you would use to close the door from the inside. Now remove the 2 screw at the bottom of the panel, these are kind of hard to find, runs you finger around in the carpet. Pull the plastic cover off around the opening handle, and unplug the window and lock switches. Now carefully pry off the panel. After you get the clips to release, unhook the rod from the back of the opening handle.

Driver side door panel removal


Generic instructions to remove door panels:

1. Remove the screw(s) in the trim behind the door release handle and remove the trim.
2. Look for the screws in the arm rest and remove. Remove the arm rest.
3. Look for other screws (possibly under caps) and remove them.
4. Insert a wide flat blade between the door panel and the door. Find the plastic tabs which hold the panel to the door and gently pry the panel away from the door. Make sure you work as close to these plastic tabs as possible to avoid ripping the panel.
5. Work your way around the door prying the tabs out of the door.
6. When everything is free, gently lift the door panel straight up and out of the door.
7. Disconnect the electrical wires, and you are done.
8. There is a vapor barrier between the door and panel which must be gently peeled out of the way in order for you to gain access to the window and door latch mechanisms.
