I just removed the passenger side door panel with two long screw drivers, a putty knife and an eight mm socket on a quarter inch drive ratchet. First of all I did NOT have to remove any trim or the door handle which stays attatched to the panel. I use the putty knife to protect the paint from being scratched by the screw drivers. Insert the putty knife, ( started at the bottom) outer edge. Next insert the screw driver on top of the putty knife and pry a little to create a gap. Now insert the other screw driver near the first one and pry. It will take some effort to pop the plastic fastener but that is what holds the panel on and there are several of them so just work your way around. I stuck a 2X4 mid way between the panel and door so I could see and gain access to the two 8 mm nuts holding the arm rest secure. I removed these screws from inside or inbetween the door and panel so no damage or removing the arm rest from the dor panel. Use a flash light to spot the nuts.After they are removed and all the plastic fasteners are pried out ( there was a stubborn one for me on top near the door lock) then pull UP on the panel to clear the window sill. Pull up and out at the same time and it should come out. Be patient because they are fairly secure and there are several of them.

SOURCE: need directions to remove driver door interior panel 1997 deville

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. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls

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.

My drivers side rear window is stuck down. You can hear the motor moving up and down but the window is off track and not catching to come back up. I was wondering how to remove tghe door panel so i can...


I just replaced the window regulator in my deville.Mine was doing the same thing.I found the part online for 35.00.You have to take the door panel off and remove the regulator.That's the metal track that holds the window in place.Once you get inside you disconnect the motor and then the regulator.It is held on by three bolts.Unbolt it from the window (there is two bolts for that)and take out the regulator.Install the new one the same way you took it out and reconnect the motor.Test it before putting it back together.When you unbolt the window and take out the regulator be careful.The window will fall down into the door when you take the two bolts out that hold the window.It's good to have someone with you,but you can do it yourself.The hardest part is getting the door panel off.There is 8 or 9 clips around the door from the sides to the bottom.There are 2 screws in the armrest and one underneath the door handle.be patient and good luck.

I have a power window issue with the rear drivers side window. 2001 Cadillac Deville. The window does not move but I hear a click...The other windows work. Is there a fuse for each window?


  • That click is the window off tract. You need to pull the door panel off and have a look at the tract and regulator. Sounds off track to me. The fact that it is click tells me that the power feed is not the issue and the fuses are working fine or you would not hear any "clicking."

My driver side window fell out of place how do i get the door panel off to get to the window? i cant get the middle off its stuck on there pretty good help me please


Chances are you need to get a screw or two out still. If the panel seems like it wants off but the center is still stuck pretty good, it's probably because it's bolted down. Along with the clips you got loose all around the edge of the door panel, the armrest and door handles may be bolted to the door through the panel. These screws may be under plugs you have to remove first. You probably have power windows right? If not the clip behind the window regulator needs to be removed and the regulator pulled off. (Do this with window regulator removal tool or two flathead screwdrivers.) After all the screws are removed, clips popped out of door, and regulator removed (if equipped) you should be able to lift panel off. May need to lift panel over door locks or door handle to remove. Careful of wiring harnesses for electric locks and windows and speaker wires in door. Should be able to disconnect and reconnect easily.

If you damaged the clips upon removal no worries. You can go to your parts store and buy new ones to replace them so the panel goes back on nice and tight.

I hope this helps.

When replacing the drivers side rear window regulator I broke all of the panel fasteners getting the door panel off. I need new fasteners. they are large black plastic retainers.


You should be able to get those at any parts supplies or even a body shop. Dealer should also be able to supply those with little trouble
