There is a screw hidden on the bottom of the panel. There are also two screws behind the pull strap. You have to take off the pull strap with a star driver then use a phillips to take of the panel. Be sure not to pull the panel, but lift it up and to either side. Before it comes completely off, there is a latch that you will have to lift.

SOURCE: driver side window off track

2 sets (total 4) T30 Torx screws need to be removed.
The 2 holding the interior door handle grip / cup.
And then behind where the cup is, there are 2 more, that secure the door panel to the door.

FWIW, there are also 2 philips screws. One at the top, near the mirror. The second at the moveable door handle latch.

Lastly, of course, the standard "pop" sort of fasteners, around the perimeter on the 2 sides and bottom of the door panel. Also, there are 2 light blue plastic alignment posts (that do *not* fasten).

When re-assembling, make *sure* to properly catch / engage the door panel's top black plastic lip into the 3 hidden metal "U" holders, at the very top of the door panel.

General instructions for door panel removal; Door panels are attached to the door frame with clips such as the one above. The ribbed, screw-like part of the clips are inserted into holes in the door frame around the perimeter of the sides and bottom of the panel
Auto Repair Mechanics How to Remove Car Door Panel

The video shows details of door panel removal. First locate all the screws on the door panel, usually at the door handle and door rest. Look for any hidden screws that may be covered with small plastic caps.

After all screws are removed, the side and bottom clips need to be popped out of the door frame. You can purchase a set of trim tools to pop the clips, or you can use flat blade screw drivers and a flat putty knife to pop the clips out. Sometimes the clips break, but they are replaceable. Once the sides and bottom are loose, the top of the panel is loosened by lifting up on the panel, disengaging the panel from the top track on the door frame. Be careful of wiring connectors, which will have to be disconnected to completely remove the panel.

Rear door panel removal:rear door window just fell down oneday and i was told it might just be off the track. it has electric windows

Its not off the track!!
You just lost the holders clipping your window glass piece.
  • Look for screws in door panel or around the speaker vents.
  • If you are sure that the speaker cant be removed without opening the door panel then read this below.
  • Mostly seen near areas like door lever(inside), power window switch set, bottom and each sides of the whole panel.
  • If its manual window, then look for a circle clip in between the winding window lever and the door panel. Plunge screw driver between them a make a gap then look.
  • Assure that all clips or screws which obstacles the removal of the panel.
  • Simply pull the panel from sides towards you

How do i get door panel off of driver side door to fix window back on track

remove all screws(phillips) remove the power window/locks switches carefully, all along the door panel edges there are clips that hold the panel onto the inside door skin these must be carefully pried as to not break them, they are plastic... have a screw # 2 phillips driver, flat bladed also to pry panel etc. and a pair of needle nose pliers to remove any clips that stay stuck in the door skin once the panel is removed. Look over the panel carefully and be sure you remove anything that ressembles a plastic caq/cover to ensure safe removal. Go slow do it right the first time!!! Good luck. John

Replace window motor on 1997 del sol

Remove the door handle with one #2 phillips screw, push forward. Push the 2 plasic clips on the release handle and the lock rod by rotating them away from the open end of the clip (clockwise for drivers side, counterclockwise for passenger side). Pull the lock rod and relese out of the clips. Remove the phillips screw in the bottom of the door grab handle. Remove the small black plastic piece on the upper forward corner of the door panel. Remove door panel, should be aproximately 10-12 clips. Once off, you'll see the window motor. Remove the outer window trim. Yes, you WILL break all the clips. I've not had much sucess no matter how careful I am. Use a 10mm wrench or socket to remove the window from the window regulator. You'll see 2 white plastic wedges with 10mm head bolts in them. Pull the window out of the track. If needed, loosen or remove the rear guide track. There also are two 10mm bolts holding the guide rail in. Remove the windoe regulator and motor assembly with (I believe) 3 10mm bolts. Once on the bench, remove the motor from the regulator and reinstall!

Window off track

Looking at the opened door from the inside remove the philips screw near the upper hinge. Pry the speaker grill off with a thin blade putty knife, starting at the bottom left and work to the right. Remove speaker screws and the three screws in the recessed plastic spaces behind. Remove the square covers behind the handle and in the arm rest. Remove the 2 philips screws exposed. Start to pry from the top hinge side between the plastic door panel and the metal door. Work your way around the door until plastic clips release. Once the bottom of the panel and sides are free, lift the panel up and off the door being careful not to pull wiring and door handle mechanism loose. Unplug the as much of the wiring as you can and support the panel so as to not stretch the wiring. Pop the plastic retaining clip on the door handle connecting rod and lift the rod out of the handle. Slowly peel back the vinyl/rubber door cover stuck to the metal door. The window is held in the lower track with two clips that are bolted to the track. Unbolt by raising or lowering the window and using a 10MM socket on the nuts to loosen. Remove the window seal along trhe bottom of the window opening by prying straight up. You can then remove the window and re-epoxy in the lower clips and reassemble window in reverse order.

Window fell off the runner in the door

The door panel has screws on the bottom of the door panel. If there is carpet on the base of the door panel, the holes are hidden within the carpet.

Also, you have to remove the arm rest, typically it has 2 screws holding it to door and plastic push-in door panel clips on the sides. You can use a screw driver to help pop them out.

The door panel, when loose from door, lift up and off. Take your time so you dont break any tabs on the back side.

If the window is falling off the track, there is a small plastic tab that is mounted to glass or track; it slides in the window channel on front and rear tracks.

You can get this part at your local auto parts house, in HELP section.

Left rear window I think jumped off the track trying to gain access to the panel to try to put window back on track

There is a special tool for taking door panels off and it can be bought at most auto supply companies.It is flat with a v in the end of it so that when you put it between the door panel and the door it will fit around the plastic clips.check the door for any visible screws and there is one located behind the door grab handle and it has a plastic cover over it .Just pop the cover off with a small flat screw driver. Once all the screws are out you have to use the tool I mentioned to pop the plastic clips out of the door.They have barbs on them to grab when installed,so when you try and get them out they are a a little tougher,but not too bad. Don't use a lot of force because the clips will break.once you see all the clips are out the door panel will slide up to release the trim that is at the bottom of the window.The wie will be attached to the power window switch so don't forget to disconnect it.
