Re: how to remove door panel on a sunfire
Very very carefully !! when i did this on my chevy and Saturn i broke almost every plastic clip...you need to take your time and use a large blade screw driver or the proper tool which looks like a crow bar, with a v-shaped wedge in it and after you have taken all the screws out of the door handle and seat belt areas, then try to pry these loose...dont let it fall because you may still have wiring still connected to the door lock or window switch assemblies and they may break the connectors.Thats about all the info i can give you. Remember they're usually made of plastic and break when excessive force is used...take your time. Even after knowing this i still end up breaking one or two, they're very tricky to get out. Im sure if i had the correct tool it would have been easier. good luck.

They should just be bolted on, probably be a bolt or clip to the front bumper probably 4 or 5 bolts along the top of the fender, probably 1 in the door jamb and one at the bottom of fender...you will have to remove wheel and the splash shield
you do need to remove the door handles to remove the door trim panel, if it has arm rests on the panel look for 2 or 3 plastic plugs which only press in and are easy to remove with a blade, if they are not present the arm rest may be part of the trim as one unit.
the winder handle may have a spring clip behind the handle and the trim, if that is the case you will need a special tool to remove the clip. also check for any screws that may be holding the panel to the door, when all screws etc are removed just lever the panel away from the door with a flat blade or screwdriver. hope this info helps
Hello There: to change the window you will need to remove the door panel there might be screws around the panel that will need to be removed and the panel should be able to pop off then look at the bottom of the window and remove the anchor bolt from the window and pull the window out replace in reverse hope this helps you out sincerely D.Jones
It is likely the handle or rod came of the lock mechanism. YOu will have to remove all the screws in the door panel and then take a pry bar or huge flat-tipped screwdriver and pry the panel off the door. Then take a look inside to see what doesn't look right. You may see the rod hanging there or it may be lying on the bottom of the door. It should snap back in place, if it doesn't stay in place, then a new little plastic fastner will need to be installed to hold the rod in place.
If you have manual windows, remove the window crank handle. Then remove the screw from the trim around the door handle and pry the trim from the door. If you have power locks, disconnect the lock connector from the trim and set it aside. Now remove the panel screws from the bottom of the door (either four or five). You should now be able to pull the panel away from the door at the bottom and then lift it up and away. Once the panel is removed from the door, disconnect the speaker connector.
you need to get a door and door panel removal tool. Once you have removed the crank there is a couple of screws on the door arm rest..remove them and using the door panel removal tool..remove the door panel. you may have to lift up on the panel to remove it...
