Question about 1986 Cadillac DeVille
Chances are you need to get a screw or two out still. If the panel seems like it wants off but the center is still stuck pretty good, it's probably because it's bolted down. Along with the clips you got loose all around the edge of the door panel, the armrest and door handles may be bolted to the door through the panel. These screws may be under plugs you have to remove first. You probably have power windows right? If not the clip behind the window regulator needs to be removed and the regulator pulled off. (Do this with window regulator removal tool or two flathead screwdrivers.) After all the screws are removed, clips popped out of door, and regulator removed (if equipped) you should be able to lift panel off. May need to lift panel over door locks or door handle to remove. Careful of wiring harnesses for electric locks and windows and speaker wires in door. Should be able to disconnect and reconnect easily.
If you damaged the clips upon removal no worries. You can go to your parts store and buy new ones to replace them so the panel goes back on nice and tight.
I hope this helps.
