Hi Marion- just signed up, you're my first response. First, look at the handles to see what tools are needed, usually a philips head screwdriver and allen wrench. Next, unloosen the set screw enough with the allen wrench to remove the handle, keep set screw in handle, don't remove, next pull handle apart, next remove any hardware attached to door and you should be done. Hope this helps. Thanks, Joe
Hi, there realy is no tricks to these just a little patience is all it takes. You will need to remove the inner door panel. You have to remove any inside handles that are still attatched with either an allen wrench or phillips screwdriver whichever you have on yours and then simply take a flat bladed screwdriver and work it around the edge of the door panel prying it untill the little plastic tabs pop out of the holes. this may seem scary but that is how it is done and once you start getting the tabs to pop out it gets easier the farther you go. And these simply pop back in when your finished. If your model has the screw in type then
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. Take a flash light and look up towards the handle from the inside and you should see 2 bolts holding it on. One you should be able to get with a socket that you feed through the hole in the metal that is ournd the handle, the other you may need to get a box wrench to get on it. If you have a digital camera take a picture of the lock rods and connectors so you can put all pack in the right place. You may want to get new plastic tabs for the lock rods as these tend to be the cause of most failures. the handle should pull straight out once you have disconnected all the lock rods and bolts, the replacement goes in the revers order this one came out.
YOU MUST REMOVE THE INNER DOOR PANEL THEN YOU CAN ACESS THE 2 NUTS THAT HOLD THE HANDLE INPLACE, THIS IS NOT A HARD JOB BE CAREFUL WHEN REMOVING THE DOOR PANEL CHECK FOT SCREWS AROUD THE INSIDE DOOR HANDLE, I THINK CHEVYS HAVE AN ALLEN HEAD SCREW THAT HOLD THE WINDOW HANDLE, THERE IS A PLASTIC CLIP THAT HOLDS THE DOOR LATCH TO THE HANDLE RELEASE THIS AND THE 2 NUTS AND YOU SHOULD BE IN GOOD SHAPE
If you have not figured this out yet I should be able to help you. The door panel has 2.5mm allen screws around the outside, remove them, under the pull handle(pry it off) there are 2 philips screws, under the speaker grill(pry it off) there are 4 philips screws. Remove the speaker. Pull the door panel loose, the door handle (the hinged latch release handle) stays on the door frame. Disconnect any wiring to the door panel and set aside.
I believe on this car you will see a plastic sheet covering the metal portion of the door. The easiest way to deal with it is to cut around the pieces where the allen screws went in and the door handle, etc. Just tape the plastic back together when you reinstall.
Once the door panel is off, lower the window to a point that you can see the clamps that hold the window, loosen them and remove the glass.
The regulator is held in place with 4 10 mm bolts, loosen them and bend the regulator out. Remove the motor and swap it over( I believe it is held in place with 3 or 4 t30 screws),
Reassembly is reverse. Close the door and run the window all the way up, hold the switch there to learn the top position.
Height adjustment is done from under the clamps where the glass attaches to the regulator.
Take a look at my older solutions. I just gave someone instructions on this. 2.5mm allen bolts around the perimeter, 2 philips under the pull handle, and 4 philips around the speaker. The handle stays on the door when the panel comes off.
row of phillips screws along bottom and one behond inner door handle
pop out studs on each side
allan screws holdiong the handle- to get to these u need to find the little phillips screw above the door pocket. this releases the window switch so u can get to the allen screw
once removed..you can wiggle the panel and it will come loose
on this car there should be a black strip cover on the inside of door handle. take small screw driver and remove it starting from near lock cylinder, pry very gently and cover should come off, then gently peel the cover towards the front of the car until it is off. phillips screw is located in the rear of the door and at the front of the handle.
Lower hole in the door jamb loosten allen screw until the cap comes off. Upper hole there is a #20 torx slightly down and inboard of the hole, you need a really long torx bit and pull the handle out slightly. It also helps to pull weatherstrip loose so you can see it.
