Remove the cup that is around the door handle - should be srew(s).. And anything else that would prevent the panel from coming off..
Pop the panel off by prying it a bit.. There are plastic clips all around the edge of the panel that hold it on so be careful.. Usually a good yank will release each clip..

  1. remove screw and door handle trim
  2. remove red reflector lense with a small screw driver it clips in
  3. remove bolt from behind red reflector
  4. remove bolt from door pull handle
  5. Pull door panel off door
  6. unhook wire harnesses tweeter, power door switch, power window switch.
The door panel is held on with clips that snap in it can be a pain in the but to get these off be careful pulling on the door pocket it can break. i just cautiously yanked on it and it popped off start in one corner and work from there the tweeter houseing is part of the door frame there is a special tool to release these plastic retainer clips, any parts store like NAPA will have it , well worth the money.

How to change regulator motor on a 2003 buick


from Ehow.com. Long answer
All Buick automobiles now have powered windows for both front and back doors. These powered windows use a motor attached to a continuous screw that lifts and lowers a lattice device for opening and closing the window. Each window also has a window regulator to tell the motor when to stop both lowering the window and raising it into place. Occasionally, this regulator will become faulty and need to be replaced. Although not a difficult procedure, it does mean having to disassemble the Buick's door.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
    Door Armrest
  1. The first thing to do is remove the Buick's armrest on the door. Underneath the armrest, hidden from view, are large screws that go all the way into the doorframe. Remove all of these screws and the armrest will come free. Once it's loose, carefully disconnect all the wires to the remote control switches. The driver door armrest will have more wires than the other doors. Door Panel
  2. Once you've removed the armrest, you can take off the inside door panel. Start by going all the way around the door's edges and removing all the fasteners. Once you've removed these may find some clips holding the panel tight, depending on your model Buick. Carefully unfasten these and then work the door panel up off its guide at the top of the door next to the window opening and around the car door handle. If your Buick has a door-mounted nightlight, disconnect the wires to the accessory. This will give you access to the door's interior. Removing the Old Regulator
  3. Inside the door there are two components with electrical wires: the motor and the regulator. The motor is attached to a long threaded bolt. Remove the wires connected to the regulator and then the screws mounting the regulator to the doorframe. Be careful not to scratch the window with the screwdriver when working in these close quarters. Once the regulator is free inside the door, lift it out of the door. Installing the New Regulator
  4. Installation is just doing the removal procedure in reverse: put the regulator in the door, secure it, connect the wires (no need to solder; the wires are connected with tabs), and reattach the door panel, the switch wiring and the arm rest.

    It should take no longer than an hour to complete this project. One quick warning, however---never force or strain any part to remove it. If a component does not come free easily, then check again for an extra screw or retaining clip. Don't get frustrated and break something that ends up being more expensive than the cost of the new regulator!

How do i change the power window motor on the drivers door?



Aztek, Rendezvous 2001-2005 Window Systems - Power Windows Removal & Installation

  4. Remove the outer belt sealing strip.
  5. Remove the window weatherstrip.

    NOTE Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  4. Turn the window to a horizontal position and align the window with the clevice clamps.
  5. Tighten the clevice clamps bolts to 97 inch lbs. (11 Nm).

  2. Position the window regulator rail through the access hole first.
  3. Position the window regulator motor through the access hole.

Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

Drivers side mirror replacement 02 Rendezvous


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. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

REMOVING A 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. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. 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

Electric window on my 2003 Rendezvous


Patience, patience, all the years I work on cars, I dreaded door panels the most. No two are the same, and I don't know of a manual to walk you through it. If you know someone who either works in a body shop or knows some that does, a talk with them could help you immensly. A door handle remover and several screw drivers and metric sockets are the tools needed. And Patience.
