Most all window motors and regulators are pop-riveted to the door. This requires special tools to reinstall the pop rivets and assembly.

How do I remove the door panels from a 1991 Pontiac convertible


WINDOWS
1991 Pontiac Sunbird






One piece trim panel is used on styles with standard trim. The custom trim has an upper metal trim panel. The one piece trim hangs over the door inner panel across the top and is secured by clips down the sides and across the bottom. It is retained by screws located in the areas of the top front of the panel assembly.

Remove all door inside handles.

Removing a window crank handle (with a retaining clip inside the handle) without a special tool can be a problem. An alternative method is to take a clean shop towel and wedge it between the window crank handle and the door panel. Move it up, while pulling it from left to right, as in a sawing motion working the clean shop towel until the retaining clip comes free.

Remove the door inside locking rod knob.
Unfasten the screws inserted through the door armrest and pull the handle assembly into the door inner panel or armrest hanger support bracket.
On styles with remote control mirrors assemblies, disengage the end of the mirror control cable from the bezel on the standard trim, or from the upper trim panel on the custom trim. On custom trim, remove the upper trim panel.
On styles with power window or door lock controls located in the door trim panel, disconnect the wire harnesses at the switch assemblies. On the four door sedan and the two door hatchback, remove the switch cover by pushing down at the switch area and pulling down at the bottom of the cover. The switch and base may be removed from the trim with the cover removed.
Remove the remote control handle bezel screws.
Unfasten the screws used to hold the armrest to the inner panel.
Remove the screws and plastic retainers from the perimeter of the door trim using tool BT-7323A or equivalent and a screwdriver. To remove the trim panel, push the trim panel upward and outboard to disengage from the door inner panel at the beltline.
On styles with an insulator pad fastened to the door inner panel, use tool J-21104 or equivalent to remove the fasteners and the insulator pad.
On styles with the water defector held in place by fasteners, use tool BT-7323A or equivalent to remove the fasteners and the water deflector.
On styles with the armrest bracket riveted to the inner panel and installed over the water deflector, drill out the armrest bracket rivets using a 3 / 16 in. (5mm) drill bit.

Tilt the front edge of the glass downward to locate the glass in the door.
Apply pressure rearward and snap the glass rear guide into the rear run channel.
Lower the glass to about 3 in. (76mm) above the beltline and install the widow regulator roller to sash channel.
Run the glass to the full up position.
Place the front glass retainer in position and install the bolts.
Check the window to make sure it operates correctly, then install the remaining trim parts.

2004 jeep liberty, window drive broken, fell down, now rear door is locked and cannot open inside or out


If your careful you can get the door panel out of the window trim at top with out breaking it. Hooter day is best to do it as the plastic panel is more pliable. Once out wedge it back some and pull the trim out. This will give you a good inch plus gap to work threw. Most like the cable has wrapped around it. Flash light to see it and bent coat hanger, long screw driver or bar. You should be able to get it open.

Power window fell down, won't roll back up


I just had that happen on a 2000.
It was the window regulator.
I ordered a new one on e-bay.
Changing it involves taking the whole door apart, and you can do it yourself, if you are really "mechanical".
You would need to pay particular attention to where every nut & bolt goes, and replace exactly.
The window regulator is made of several metal pieces and some connecting wires or cables.
It is complicated if you are not familiar with it.
You will be needing to take the glass out of the door by rotating it, so you can install the new regulator.
Be blessed.

How do I remove the handle in door panel? I'm trying to remove the door because my window fell off the track, it doesn't have power windows so I have to manually roll them up and down.


1- remove the window crank
2- remove any screws from the door panel; sometimes they are hidden by a plastic cap. look inside the elbow rest cavity; remove any screws you see.
3- insert a flat plastic or wooden tool in the shape of (roughly) a scraper, between the door panel and door and start prying the clips which hold the panel to the sheet metal. get as close to the clips as possible with the tool, as that will be the easiest way. there are about 8 of these clips on an average door. when all the clips have come loose of the sheet metal, lift the panel straight up to remove it. you will find a metal rod attached to the inside of your handle; unfasten it and remove the panel completely. that handle looks like it is part of the panel and cannot be removed separately.

Need to remove the drivers door trim panel to determine problem with raising mechanism. John Chaney


Usually a broken cable, or the motor. To remove the trim, remove the speaker, then remove all the screws from inside the door handles. Then remove the screws around the edges of the trim panel. Prise the edge of the trim panel away from the door, and continue to pull until all the plastic clips are loose. Then just lift the panel up and off of the window ledge. Unplug electrical from the back of the switches, and the panel is then separated from the vehicle.

Replacing the window lifter is quite simple. Just unbolt the vertical chanels, and the motor, and the whole thing comes out. You can get refurbished lifters with the motor quite affordably from the dealer, or the auto parts store.

The arm rest, and inside door handle trim have phillips retainer screws...both the arm rest, and door handle trim need to be removed before the door panel can be pryed up from the bottom...white plastic push in clips secure the panel...after all have been popped loose...you should be able to lift the door panel up at the window to remove...be sure to look for insulation liners that should be taped back into position before re-assembling...the push in plastic clips are also available at your parts store..."Help Parts" for GM models...Hope this helps:)
