Question about Mercury Cougar

1 Answer

I have 3 screws out of the passenger door panel and it doesn't seem to want to come off. Before I get rough with it, i thought I would see if there are any tricks to taking it off, or possibly other screws that I am not seeing.

What year is the Mercury Cougar?

    Seeing as the older model Cougars (XR7) only had two screws, I'll presume 2000 era model, in which case you have 6 screws, located here:

Passenger rear window will not roll up or down

You have phillips or torx screws to take out. Some may be hidden behind plugs. 1-take all seeable screws oit. 2-use a flat screwdriver and carefully pry all plastic clips between the door panel and the door body. Panel should lift off unless all screws are not removed.

Hello, I'm trying to remove the driver's door panel on a 1996 1.5 323. Have removed all the clips and screws I can find. I can't get thr window control panel off and the panel seems to be stuck...

In most cases with power windows the the switch will friction fit in the door panel, Pry the top section of the switch up slightly and you should notice a metal or plastic clip that that keeps the fit tight. once this is removed you will be able to see down in to the door to locate what is holding you up. Most likely a screw for the door handle trim on the inside of the vehicle. Hope that helps you.

Look closely for any "lift up" type flap or cover on the door handle covering the screw hole as unless the door handle is not removed, the door panel will not come off. Make sure you also have removed all the push clips used to hold the door panel.

Rear actuator, when heat is on in front with controls in rear on heat, rear blows cold air

The actuator on the rear controlling the climate control door was bad, the 2 top door panels had to be removed, then removed the 1 door foot step panel on the rear passenger side and the rear bottom hatch panel, then you can pull the large side panel back enough to get into the control, simply unplug the unit and remove the screws and install in reverse order, it took roughly 30 minutes, very much worth the time to DIY, We saved $ 430.00.

Trying to remove drivers door panel on FX35

I would suspect that is a phillips screw. There may be another one in that area -- maybe not.

Removing this screw should allow yu to remove the door panel.

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

i'm not certain, but i'll give it a shot. (I have removed panels from several other autos and they were all the same)
to remove the inner panel,
remove all screws- there should be around 8 or so- there should be one in the plastic shield around the door open handle, and one in the arm rest, and the rest should be around the outter panel. after the screws are removed, you should be able to pop the clips out, use a flat head screw driver and put light pressure to pry it off- careful to not break them.
to remove the outter panel
open door- obvously- remove the outter door handle and mirror. remove the seal on top of the panel (black, protects window) you will need a flat screw driver, carefull not to chip paint- it pops right off. now, from the inside, look around the outter edge, there are hex head screws holding the panel on, it is much easier to start on the side closer to the chasis of the truck. After all screws are removed, slide the panel- easily- toward the truck, (there is a small clip by the mirror mount that has to be dislodged when you slide it)
hope this helps! :)
