How do you remove the inside rear door panel of a 2002 ford explorer. I need to service the power window on the rear door on the passenger side. Submitted on 9/29/2009 @ 1:07 pm. Thank you

1. Open window & remove door lock knob. 2. Remove 2 screws from armrest & remove armrest. 3. If manual windows, remove windoe crank. 4. Pry under & remove trim panel around door handle, remove any un-covered screws. 5. This is the fun part, the door panel is affixed with plastic retaining clips, slip something thin under door panel until you can feel where clip is and pull door panel away from door at that point. These clips are suppose to remain in the door panel, but rarely do. They usually remain in the door itself. do this for EVERY clip you find, there are clips approx a foot apart around the entire panel. Good luck. 6. After all retaining clips are pulled out, lift panel slightly to disengage panel from flange at base of window. 7. Disconnect any electric wires or switches and there you have it. Try not to curse.

Need to pull door panel off to replace power window motor can not get door panel off

There are 2 screws holding the window switches to the door and 2 screws for the door panel, one is in the pull handle, the other behind the window switches. Remove these screws and using a trim remover(hopefully) work around the sides and bottom of the door to pop the plastic retainers out of the door, push in at the top of the door panel and push up from the bottom to release the top retainer.
There is more to changing the motor than you may think. Steel cover has to be popped off and reused, so be careful.

Procedure for removing door panel on passenger side 1994 camry


Pull off the triangle thing.
On the door, at the front edge, there should be 2 plastic caps. Remove them. Under the caps there are screws. Remove them.
On the rear of the door panel, above the latch, are 2 round things, with a smaller round thing in the middle. Press on the inner round thing, and pull the pin assemblys out.
Do you have a light on the door panel at the bottom? If so, pry it out with a small screwdriver (it's just a "press-fit"), and remove the wire connector.
Under the arm-rest, remove the big phillips screw that is hidden, about an inch back from the outer edge of the panel. You will see the hole.
Under the arm rest, remove the tiny plastic trim cover, remove another big phillips screw.
Remove the door handle: Remove the phillips screw. Slide the handle forward or backward to release it from the door metal. Undo the clamp from the lock rod to the handle.
Remove any screws at the very bottom of the panel, if there are any.
Starting at the bottom of the panel. pull straight out, to defeat the plastic clamps tht holds the panel to the door metal. Once the panel is loose, pull it up a bit to remove it from the window opening retainer. Finally, inside the panel, unplug the wiring harness to the window switch assembly.

If you need any more info, please comment back. And, Thanks for the FIxYa.

Broken power window mechanism in the drivers door, on a 1993 Toyota Camry. How do you get the inside door panel off?

Remove the plastic screw covers at the forward edge of the door. Remove the 2 gold coloured screws.
Using a flat blade screwdriver, insert the blade above & below the locking thing at the door handle, pry up and down, top & bottom respectively. Slide & pull the handle out, remove the rod going to the handle.
Remove the 2 big screws for the door panel. 1 is under a small trim cover, the other is under the armrest
Remove the lower light & unplug it (if you have one) which may be under the arm rest (it pops out)
Press the centers of the 2 round push clips that are on the rear edge of the door panel and pull the clips out
Remove any screws at the bottom of the door panel (if you have them)
Starting at the bottom of the panel pull straight out with steady, even pressure as to not snap the plastic clips. After the bottom & side clips are disconnected from the door, lift the top of the panel straight up.
Remove the plastic sheet that covers the inner shell of the door.
Uning a 10 millimeter socket, remove the bolts that holds the window onto the regulator
Remove the window, up & out thru the top of the door

Rh door panel

1. Remove the philips screw in the plastic trim by the mirror and remove the trim piece.
2. Using a flat blade screw driver gently pry up the front of the panel holding the window and door lock switches. This pulls the assembly out of the spring clamp. Pull it up and forward to remove it from the arm rest.
3. Remove the two philips screws holding the switches to the trim piece.
4. Find the two screws holding the arm rest. They're at the junction of the arm rest and the switch assembly. Only the one going into the door needs to be removed.
5. Gently pry the trim piece from the door handle. There are two spring clamps, one in the front and one in the rear of this plastic piece.
6. There is a hidden phillips screw that needs to be removed. It's located at the inside bottom rear corner of the door panel. It's hidden in the carpet trim.

After this last screw is removed the door panel can be lifted straight up and off. Feed the cable harness through the hole and your're done.
