Apparently the motor is no longer working! The window is down about 2 inches and won't move! Are there any special tools required to remove door panel, and what is the difficulty factor on a scale of one to ten in replacing motor?

First you need to check your fuses and make sure you didnt blow a fuse. no special tools. used a screw driver and carefully pry it away from the metal part of the door. be careful not to let it fall to the ground because it could pull the wires from the motor or the controls in the panel.

You can get tools that are generiac, which I would recommend (after) you get some experience,so the next veh in your future will go easier. It is a frustrating job more than difficult. The door panel can be worse than getting the motor out. Now the really,really bad part is, the sharp metal edges of the inner door sheet metal.You need sleeves on and can't always wear gloves and still get you hands in there. SO--Expect to get cut up ,NO exception. The fasteners you will break getting the panel off are called Christmas Trees in some cases and easier to find an may only be at an Auto Body Supply House. BE CAREFULL ON THE SHARP EDGES

How to remove door handles only, not the whole


For inside door handles, a special tool is required. It slips behind the door handle or window crank and moves the clip down so the handle will come off. For the outside door handle, Take the inside handles off using the special tool (available at any auto parts store). Remove the inside door panel. Remove the retainer clips for the door/lock linkage.The outer handle is held on by bolts on the inside of the door. Good luck

How do I fix a rear passenger side window that is stuck and will not roll back up


There is no simple way, you will have to remove the door panel by taking the screws out of anything that holds it on. The control panel on the door usually has one or two screws depending on the model. The door panel is held on with a few screws and mainly clips that push into holes on the door. Once everything is removed used something flat about an inch or so wide and insert it between the door and panel, carefully move it up and down until you feel a clip then pull the tool towards you to pop the clip out. On the Chevy there may be two screws one on each end, and in the arm rest. Remove these and grab the bottom up the panel and push up, the panel should then be able to move. Check the motor while running and look at the gear which may be stripped. Also check the runners the window goes into since they often contain a felt to keep the window quiet but can come loose and jam the window. My best guess is the motor is weak and needs to be replaced, since going down is easy, but putting the window up requires more torque and worn motors fail. My 94 Camero does this on the drivers side. Goes down easy, coming up it will often stop, I wait a few minutes it will go up a little further, until I finally get it all the way. Hope this helps and if you need more information you can contact me. Just a reminder, you can change the motor yourself, but it requires patience and a little more knowledge than most people have about cars.

2000 Saturn SL2 driver's side electric window. Motor works - but window does not go up and down, or goes part way, or goes crooked. What is the fix and steps to accomplish it "? . Also best method to...


Fore remove the door panel in a SL2, you have to take off the door handle. You have to disengage the door locking mechanism from the door handle, then unscrew the panel and take it off.

The door handle unhinges from the locks and from the window controls. If your windows are electric, just unsnap the cord attached and leave it hanging out.

You may have to work with the door handle as it won't come out of the slot very easily and you don't have a lot of room. A flat bladed screwdriver with a long metal piece should work to unsnap it.

The book says 1. remove power accesory switch panel by using suitable flat blade tool at front. 2. Disconnet electrical connections.
3. pry door handle plug by using small flat bladed tool
4.remove door trim handle mounting screws
5. remove door trim panel from retainers.Start at rear bottom corner and pry outward.
6. remove door panel.
KD does make a tool that will properly pry the door panel away from reainers. KD 3705 You might get by with a screwdriver.
One other thing you may need to have the window down to get the panel to come off. You will have to lift up on it once it is loose from the fastners.
Hope this helps you out.

How to replace a window motor on the driver side.


I hope you're talking about the interior trim door panel and not the metal structure of the door. Be forwarned that a special body rivet tool is required. You can not get this tool at your local hardware or autoparts store. Also, you will most likely need to adjust the window once the replacement is made. If you are unsure how to do this, you may be better off taking it to a shop.

To remove the panel, you must remove the manual door lock slide and the screw behind the door handle. Remove the panel that contains the window/lock/mirror controls, then remove the screw under the panel. There should be a screw in the door map pocket. Carefully pry the push fasteners from around the edges of the panel from the door. The panel should push straight up. Be careful with the door handle and the wires for the lock/window/mirror controls and speaker.

The window motor and regulator must be removed as a unit. Drill out the rivets that hold the assembly. Disconnect the wire to the window motor. Remove the bolts to the regulator channels. Use one hand to support the glass while you remove the assembly.

You can not get a copy of the dealer service manual procedure unless you know someone or buy a similar manual. It would be cheaper to pay someone to replace your window motor!

R/R the motor on the regulator is easy. Once you change out the motor, replace the motor/regulator assembly into the door and window. Don't forget to connect the wire! Replace the rivets and adjust the window. Replace the door panel, making sure each hook and the door handle and manual lock rod line up.

Good luck and hope this helps.
