Lok real close and make sure there is not a screw/bolt holding it in. Some cars have 1 to 2 bolts/screws that hold that panel on as support where the door arm rest.reach handle is.

    if u believe it is indeed a clip...then tug away. the panel is a soft type of recycled and compressed cardboard so it will most likely give way before u do any serious damage.

2000 Ford Focus window crank without clip

So the crank handle just came off? There is a clip. you didn't look hard enough. You have to put the clip tool behind the handle and push down to get the clip out. To see it you have to pry back on the door panel and use a flash light.

Just bought 2000 Ford Focus SE sedan.Neither rear window will operate from drivers door or from rear door switches.Fuse is good. Any other places to look without tearing into door panel?

Look to see if there may be a child safety feature. Not allowing passengers to roll their own window down. The drivers window switch is the master switch that controls all others. For example, if drivers window switch was disconnected than none others would work. Some vehicles it is not necessary to remove door panel when removing the master control switch. I'm not sure if you are one of the ones that doesn't have to do that.. good luck.

A non working rear door acuator.

It is a fairly simple job, pull the panel off, a couple screws on the bottom under tabs, then a couple more behind the door pull or armrest,and the plastic tabs that hold the panel on in the middle, pop it off and lift it up past the lock, The lock can be disconnected at the wire and it be disabled. It is a little tricky to twist it out but it will come out. A couple bolts hold it in. Hope this helps. ,,,, Forgot to tell you, take off your watch and pull the plastic down only what you need, and don't get near the black stuff. It is sticky!

Remove door panel on a Ford Van

For a 1999 Ford Econoline 150 (assume the same or very similar), remove triangular plastic cover over mirror assembly by prying straight out, remove plastic door handle cover by prying up from the front side, remove electronic door switches by prying up from back side, remove round plastic cover at bottom rear of door panel. Four screws are now revealed, remove them. Lift door panel straight up, clips are hooks (not snap in). Work door switch assembly out of door panel. Set door panel aside. Reassemble in reverse order.

Drivers electric window

You will need to find a helper. Once you have secured their services, remove the door panel by using a small scraper or screw driver on the edges of the panel to loosen the clips. Unhook the arm rest and get everything loose. You will need the helper to hold the window up while you negotiate it back into the track.

Take helper for nice lunch or dinner as payment.
