There are clips that hold it in place most times you have to remove the inner shield then re-glue the otter shield in. go to your local glass shop and ask them how much it would cost. I have done them and they are all different but a lot of times they have short cuts and Can do it faster and cheaper than yo can as they have the tools and they can keep the shop warm enough for it to cure it correctly. sometimes they will just shellac it in place to stop it from leaking, I have replaced all of my own front windshields and they would remove it and replace it for 40 dollars. Believe me I would rather give them the money cause the guarantee it and normally get it done quickly.

How do you remove interior rear side panels to remove the speakers on 03 Toyota prerunner ext cab

Make sure that any door rubbers are removed off the plastic trim.
Being very careful, grab a hold of front or back of trim and lift away from panel. These are clipped onto the panels with plastic clips,
Sometimes they break , but most of the time they come away just fine.
Dont pull too hard or the whole trim might snap

How to replace passenger window motor on a 04 Nissan altima

Are you sure it is the motor and not the switch? Motor requires the door trim to come off,careful to remove all screws,all padding and plastic barrier.Then you will have to drill out the rivets holding the motor to the door body.Nuts and bolts are needed to install the new motor.Work carefully and get some plastic trim removers,they are cheap and worth the are going to probably break the plastic pops that hold the door trim against the door.These are readily available at most parts stores. This is a reasonably simple job if you have the tools.Just double check those window switches first,I've seen more bad switches than window motors.Good Luck

How do I remove drivers door trim? I need to fix the door pull handle.

would be held on by plastic clips around the lower sides, and by screws (like under inside door handle) that may be covered by little plastic plates which you pry off to see the screw underneath. The armrests and pull handles also use large screws. Once you get all the screws out, slip a thin bar (thin screwdriver?) under the door trim around the bottom and gently pry outward to unfasten the clips. they break easily, so work carefully, you can also buy new ones at any parts store if you ruin any. they slip[ into slots on the backside of the trim panel. Oh, yes, need first to remove window handle, unless you have power windows, then when panel is loose, reach inside and disconnect the electric switches. Once trim panel is removed, carefully peel back only what you need to of the plastic watershield. when finished you can re-stick the watershield.Simple job, but sometimes a PITA>

The front driver window made noise going up and then fell down.

It sounds like it came off the track. Take the panel off the door and inspect. Sometimes the rivets they use break, if that is all replace with small bolts.

My son broke the power window lock in my 89 toyota landcruiser, I can no longer roll down any windows besides the driver's side. I need to know the best way to take apart the passenger door so I can pull...

I have a 1989 Landcruiser but without power windows so I will tell you what I know about mine.

First remove the arm rest. you will need a large phillips head screw driver for this. Then remove the plastic trim around the door handle. This is only one regular sized phillips screw. Carefull not to do this one up too tight when you put it back on or it will crack.

The door trim is held on by about 10 plastic plugs around the edge that just pop out. Put a large flat blade screw driver behind the trim up close to where each pin and with a little twiste is should pop off. The wood isn't that strong (masonite) so you need to be gentle.

I don't know how the window switch or the door lock works as mine are mechanical but I imagine there would be some spare cable so you can partialy remove the trim and get your arm in to remove the cables.

Once the trim is off the car you should be able to see how to remove the switch.

You will probably have to get a new switch from toyota or a wreckers.

Good luck :)

How to remove trim from rear hatch door on 2001 Sienna

You need to remove the big plastic or vinyl rear hatch trim to get the side trims off. Remove the 10 mm bolt that holds the pull handle (if you have a pull handle), and then, using a flat tool, (like a stiff putty knife), insert the tool between the vinyl trim and the tailgate to loosen the plastic clips (there is like 18 of them); one the hatch panel is off, you will see that you can now remove the side trims.

Drivers door trim

The handle part of the door panel comes pops off with a butter knife or screwdriver etc. and there will be one or two screws in there. Just be as gentle as you can cause sometimes it leaves marks in the plastic. Good luck!
