Most door panels have screws in places like armrest and under/around door handle and they have with pop/snap fasteners around the edge. Prying the edge up slightly with a broad tipped tool, you can find these fasteners. Use the tool (something like a very bif flat tip screwdriver) to gently pry the fasteners loose.

They are sometimes called christmas tree fasteners. The ones you break,and you will in order to remove the door panels,are available at the professional auto body (supply) houses. Not all chain store or auto parts stores will have your exact type.

95 blazer, front driver window motor broken need to get window up


When removing the door panel, you need to remove all of the screws first. Then pull the door panel off. There should be screws around the edges or the door panel, and 1-2 screw on the door handle(on the inside). Then pop the door panel off, if the blazer has electric windows and locks you have to disconect them first, if it doesnt have power locks and windows, you have to take the window crank off,there should be a screw in the center of that. Unscrew the door lock and pull up. If it doesnt have them locks then you have to disconect it from inside the door panel
