I have a 1994 Grand Caravan and have done this several times.
1. Disconnect Negative side of Battery.
2. Remove all screws.
a. There are screw covers to remove first before
gaining access to the screws. I use a pick
driver.
b. One in recess of the door arm rest. Round
Cover.
c. One is behind the door latch release. Pull/Hold
open to gain access. Then remove the cover
d. Two are located on the Map pocket. Round
Covers.
e. One is located up near the side mirror.
f. One is located on the upper portion on the door
handle. It has a square cover.
3. Pry up and out the window/mirror adjustment cover and unplug the connection.
4. Use a wide flat screw driver to carefully pry on the bottom then side edges of the trim panel to "pop" the retainers out of the door.
5. Once all retainers have been freed: Lift up the door trim up off the upper ledge.
6. Peel back (but do not entirely remove) the rubber/plastic watershield cover.
7. Disconnect all wire connections to the door trim.
8. Pry off the plastic retaining clip to the door handle metal bar and remove the "L" bar out of the plastic connector.
9. Set the Trim Panel off to the side.
10. Remove all wire holders from the door.
11. Move the wires inside and towards the front lower access hole.
12. Peel back the rubber wire guard between the door and the A-pillar frame.
13. Pull out as much wire as possible out of the door and let hang..
14. While someone else is supporting the door: (If no one can help: with the door fully open: use a jack and block of wood to support the bottom outer edge of the door
a. I use a Breaker Bar or long Wrench
Extention and Hammer or Mallet.
b. Tap Up the Bottom Hinge Pin first.
c. I also use a flat Screw to tap up the Pin Head.
d. Remove the Bottom Door Hinge Pin.
e. Remove the Upper Hinge Pin the same way.
f. Make sure the Door is being held in place.
15. Remove any left over wires out from the door.
16. Carefully move the door away from the hinges.
Good Luck!!
If you have not replaced the Hinge Pins, and Guides, now would be a good time to do it!!

Afternnon, just wondering about the best way to locate the blend doors in the hvac box without ripping out the dash on my 2000 jeep grand cherokee. Thanks in advance. Duane


y9ou can gain access to the driver side blend door actuator by removing the glove box. The actuator will be in the left corner of the glove box opening. If you remove the actuator you will be able to turn the pin. If you can turn it 360 degrees the blend door is broke.

If your lucky its only the drivers side. If you get the repair kit from chrysler it will come with instructions with pictures on how to replace the blend door without pulling the HVAC unit/Dash. If the passenger side is broken the HVAC unit will need to be removed.

Heater treater (google them) also have a metal blend door replacement and instructions online on how to replace them without pulling the HVAC housing.

Electric door locks only work from driver door


hi, does the drivers door unlock and lock all the other doors if it does then you may find that a clip or connecting bar has come off the passenger door lock, you would need to take the door panel off to check,

If how ever the passenger door dont lock and unlock via the drivers door then you would need to buy a new central locking motor for the passenger door..

Your best option would be to remove the passenger side door panel and get someone to lock and unlock the drivers door whilst you look at the passenger side and have a look to see what parts are moving this should then give you a good idea of the parts that could be damaged

How do I remove the drivers side inner door panel.


Best thing to do is go to Auto Zone and buy some extra door panel clips, the old ones will most likely break and when you try to place the door panel back on you can't. The clips are not that expensive and Auto Zone can give you the step by step instructions and tell you what tools your going to need to remove the old clips with out damaging the door panel. If you don't want to buy the door panel tool, Auto Zone also has a tool loner program. 
Good luck and hope this helps. If you need instructions, keep me posted and be glad to help.

VW Polo 2001 - Electric Windows wont open from Drivers side..


I removed all 3 switches from driver and passenger door, which is really easy with a flat head screw driver. took them completely apart, very carefully, with a small screwdriver out of a christmas cracker. put them back together again and 2 switches started working, so I put 1 in the drivers side and 1 in the passengers side so now my drivers door window opens and I lean over to open the passenger door. cool, no money spent...yet ;o)

Replace driver's side door hdle & locking mechanism on 02 Protege


Removing the door skins are not hard, the problem is that they normally use a special tool. Without the tool you may break a few of the plastic clips. If so no worries go to your local automotive department and look for the clips. 
You will also have at least one screw that attaches the skin to the door frame. Usually remove the bottom of door panel and work around both sides until you get to the window. Then remove the screw and unplug any of the power options..
Haynes or  Chiltion manual for your car should show you details.. It is easy for the average DIY person.
The handle is just as easy. Do you have metric and torx because you will need them.
