First position the window fully downward.

Ensure the manual lock knob (1) is in the unlock position.
Insert a flat bladed tool into the top service notch in order to disengage the locking clip (2) located at the front of the manual lock knob (1).
Remove the manual lock knob (1).

Remove the inside handle bezel from the inner door panel in the following order:
Hold the inside handle to the open position.
Insert a flat bladed tool at the front lower corner of the bezel.
Pry outward on the bezel.
Remove the bezel from the inner door panel.
Remove the screw attaching the inside door handle to the sheet metal.

Use the J 36796 or J 38778 in order to release the eight retainers (1) around the outside edges of the door trim panel.

Slide the door trim panel (1) upwards to release it from the following:
The alignment datums (4)
The eight retainers
The arm rest steel retainer clips (3)
The inner belt molding (2)
Disconnect the door trim panel electrical connector.

Tools Required
J 36796 Clip Zip Clip Removal Tool or J 38778 Door Trim Pad Clip Remover

To remove the door panels, remove the plastic surround from the inside door handle. It contains the seat switches and door lock switch. It is held in place by four pressure clips, so you should be able to pull straight out. Remove the wires to the switches. Next remove the window switches by inserting a small, flat screwdriver under the forward end by the window lockout switch. Carefully pry upward. Remove the wires if you want to make removing the panel easier. The triangular panel on the inside of the rear view mirror will need to be carefully pulled inward but not removed. You might be able to do this with just your hand. Remove the white/red marker/courtesy light at the back side of the door panel. A small flat screw driver at the back side should release it. Remove the wire. There are two phillips screws that need to be removed. One is in the opening where the window switch panel was, the other is behind where the red/white light was. After those two are removed, grasp the door pull handle and pull straight up. Don’t try to pull inward.

Remove all the screws and pop the panel off, most of the retainers are spring or friction christmas tree pins, the screws will be hidden under trim in and around the door handle, and maybe under the light in the door.

SOURCE: How do you remove the rear door panel of the 2002

To not damage the plastic tabs that keep it flush against the door skin, pick up a tool like this:

You can get this at any autoparts store. Makes removing the panel easy!

Remove all screws and then pop the fastners all around the door panel. Remove slowly but use a little force to get it off...lifting up and clearing the door handle. Voila....it is off.

SOURCE: How do I remove the REAR door panel on my 2004

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

REMOVE REAR DOOR PANEL ON 2001 CADILLAC


The first one is always tricky, putting it back on also.

Behind the door handle is a trim bezel that is just velco.
Remove and remove phillips screw behind it.
Door lock button has a trap door that lifts out then the button pulls off.
Behind that is a torx srew that holds the lock trim to the door, remove.
Next are the push type clips that hold the edges of the panel to the door.
These must be pryed away from the door all the way around the panel.

Now for the fun part.

After pulling the bottom of the panel away from the door stand up and firmly grab the door armrest/handle.
In a jerking motion, pull up and out on the door panel. there will be a large electrical connection to release behind the panel.

Install is the reverse of removal, but still tricky.

Hope this helps.
