Re: door panel removal 1999 silverado
The door panels are held on with plastic clips. Chances are a few of the clips will break, but they are not expensive or hard to replace. You can buy a tool from one of your local parts store that slides under the head of the retainer and helps to remove it, but many people do not use them. There are several retainers around the edge of the panel.

If you are talking about the door speakers, then simply remove the door trim panel. Take the screws out of the door panel and it pops straight outward, its held on by snap rebits that comes apart if you pull hard, then unhook the wire connectors and the door handle rod, be careful not to break anything. If your talking about the dash speakers, simply pop the cover upward and replace the speakers. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website at: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/
The cover is separate, but I don't remember if it's plastic welded on from the factory. I would recommend removing all of the screws, removing the panels between sides in the rear door jamb area and pull the entire panel back to get to the speaker. There's actually a few good write-ups on speaker removal/installation on the web. The Mountaineer is the same as the Explorer, just under Mercury's name, so don't forget to also look under Explorer if you're looking for vehicle tips. When reassembling the panel, to get the screws to line up with the holes, my trick is to use a long pointed pick or electrical test light, poke through the panel into the screw hole. Once I get the hole, hold the panel, remove the pick and install the screw. I've done this work for 30 years.
not really sure on that one but on most first you will need to remove screw around handle that opens the door that needs to be removed. also should be screws underneth handle that pulls door shut that you will have to remove and in some cases . check around edge of door panal for more screws and if found remove them also. once all screws are removed you will need to pry on door panal slightly because there are clips behind panal holding it on. in alot of cases the clips break when removing panal but dont worry the can be bought at your local auto parts store and are very easy to replace. I usually use something flat like a small stiff putty knife to help pry door panal lose. this helps insure that you dont break of crack the panal. after all clips are off simply unplug wire connections and door handle linkage and your done. .....hope this helps and good luck
just pop out the triangle piece from the top at the top front of the door panel with a flat head screwdriver. Then simply pop out the door lock cover from the aft side and the door handle cover from the aft side as well. Then pop up your cap containing the auto door locks and windows and disconnect the cannon plugs. Then just remove 2 screws (1 from under the door lock/window cap and one just insde the door handle itself. You'll then life up and towards you to remove the panel. Don't pull it too far out because you'll still need to disconnect the speaker cannon plug and pull out the door open light at the bottom aft of the panel. You can then set the door panel off to the side.
There are a few screws which need to be removed, one under the map compartment (bottom of door ) one behind cover at door handle, once these are removed pry door panel out from the bottom up removing it from the clips, once this is complete lift up and remove entire panels off lip at top
On almost all GM's there will be a screw in the recess that the handle sits in. After removing this screw, gently wiggle this cup out of it's hole and there should be a metal rod attached to the back of it with a small clip. Unclip this and it's out - installation is the reverse. Just don't lose the clip or let the linkage rod fall down inside or you will have to remove the door panel. It shouldn't take five minutes to replace and most parts stores now carry GM door handle assemblies. Good Luck!
This is VERY common on these Trucks. My 1995 Silverado has done it Several Times. First you are going to need Door Panel Clips to replace the Ones that you will Break taking off the Door Panel. Any Decent Auto Parts Store Carries them. VERY Straight Forward from there on. For the Exterior Handle-Remove All clips and Screws once inside the Door and Replace. Make sure to put the Rubber Seal on the New Handle or it will leak! For the Inside Handle- Remove the Pin connecting the Old handle and Replace with the New once you get the Door Panel off it is Really Easy from there on!
