All you need is a philips screwdriver

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.

Remove the door panel

This can get expensive! There are a few visible screws that need to be taken out first. Next you will have to get a trim removal tool - looks like a flat prybar. Around the front, rear and bottom of the door panel there are door panel retainers on the back side of the panel. These have to be pried out to get the door panel loose. On my 2002 Caravan these were $10 each to replace so be careful when removing them. Once the panel is loose push up on it to release it from the top part of the door frame. The pic is a little different style and much cheaper but you get the idea.

2003 dodge caravan, sliding door panel removal

They use push pops. They are the tight ones and will mostly need to be replaced if you take the panel off. They will break. I think there is a couple of screws in there as well. Check the bottom of the panel for screws. Then pry on it will a pry bar or standard screw driver.

Dodge caravan sliding doors

First, keep in mind that as you begin to remove these doors you run the risk of causing serious scratches to the paint and glass, so put some masking tape and/or plastic sheeting around both sides of the door (rear quarter panel and rear glass, front door and front door glass)
I would get a Haynes repair guide since that's what I have to work from and it will tell you step by step with pictures, what to do. It's not hard, but you need to get all of the attach points unhooked to be successful. Suggest you have a helper working with you to keep the door steady.

Replace side view mirror on Dodge Caravan

You will need to remove the triangular panel on the inside of the door on the opposite side of the broken mirror. Once you remove the panel, you will see the retaining bolts holding the mirror in place. Once you remove the bolts, the mirror can then be pulled out from the outside. Reverse the procedure to reinstall the new mirror.
