The switch could be bad or the window motor inside the door.

How do you take off door panel 1996 Monte Carlo se?

1. Remove the screw holding the door-open handle bezel, and remove the bezel. Unhook the power door lock switch (if equipped) and set the bezel aside.
2. Carefully remove the power window switch from it's bezzel. There are 4 small clips, 2 on each side of the switch. Once you remove the switch from the bezel, the bezzel can be gently pried out the top of the panel w/ a small screw driver from the front.
3. Starting at the front w/ a small screw driver, pry out (gently!) the trim inlay that's above the arm rest... it was wood-grained plastic on this model.
4. Use a #30 torq bit to remove the large screw towards the top of the opening where the trim inlay was.
5. Remove the 4 Philips head screws around the perimeter of the door panel.
6. Lift up on the door panel... you may have to shake it a bit.... and after moving upwards no more that an inch... the panel should come off.

Rear door panel removal:rear door window just fell down oneday and i was told it might just be off the track. it has electric windows

Its not off the track!!
You just lost the holders clipping your window glass piece.
  • Look for screws in door panel or around the speaker vents.
  • If you are sure that the speaker cant be removed without opening the door panel then read this below.
  • Mostly seen near areas like door lever(inside), power window switch set, bottom and each sides of the whole panel.
  • If its manual window, then look for a circle clip in between the winding window lever and the door panel. Plunge screw driver between them a make a gap then look.
  • Assure that all clips or screws which obstacles the removal of the panel.
  • Simply pull the panel from sides towards you

Hello, i am having a problem with my 1998 two door honda civic dx. My drivers side door will not open from either inside or out, and the passenger door will not open from the outside. I need help getting...

unfortunately, the drivers side door panel will have to be broken. you have to unscrew all screws holding the door panel on, then pull really hard. pull it back and see if you can find an inner plate near the window that you can remove. this will grant you access to the rods and such. this is done from inside the car, and to get in if youre locked out, get a coat hanger, make a hook, and send it through the trim on the passenger side to pull the handle.

do the passenger side first. at least youll be able to enter your car. there are small plugs covering the screws. after all screws are undone, it will pop off. there are clips that secure it in place, and will probably need to be replaced when done due to them being brittle, old plastic. start removing the panel from the bottom. it will become very apparent how the panel comes off.

The window on the drivers side door came off track about halfway down. for right now I just want to put the window up instead of having tape over the open part. Its a 1998 hyundai sonata

Simnilar thing happened on our 2003 Sante Fe. A bolt came off the lifter that holds the glass in place. Take the door panel off (about 1/2 dozen screws - some of them under a little plastic tab for looks - just pry off the little button in the center to expose the screw) and you can probablyn see the problem or at least place the window back on the track. Once you take the panel off you will probably need to unplug some of the electrical (door lock and window conrtrols) but they will just plug back in easily when you are done.

How do i remove a drivers side door panel for an hyundai lantra 2000cc 't' reg with electric windows, i've removed all the screws around the panel, but it wont move

the arm rest that put your arm on should have some screws holding it. sometimes they have little roound or square caps covering the screw wholes you can pop these off to access the screws.

Can anyone suggest a solution as how to fix a keyless remote for a 1998 Hyundai lantra? It activates the immobilizer but does not open the door locks.

Are you sure it's the remote? Do the doors lock and unlock using the driver's door master switch panel? If not, then it's probably the door 'unlock relay.' If so, then you'll want to test the remote keyfob so see if it's 'transmitting' the correct signal to 'UNLOCK' the doors.

How do i replace the window motor

This is a common problem with driver side window. Its just a wear and tear problem. Don't go to the dealership, the Regulator will cost you over $230. Go to and search for the part number which should cost you only $70-80 or so. If you go to a glass place they will charge you dealership price plus $150 per hour. I say do it yourself which goes a little something like this.
