Re: i need to take off the drivers inside door panle?
the crank handle is held in with a U shaped clip. Take a flat head screw driver and pry open the gap between the crank handle and the door panel. look in this gap and you will see the clip. Take another screw driver and from the end of the clip pop it off the crank handle. (you may have to rotate the crank handle to find the end of the clip). Another way is to put panty hose or a thin rang into the gap and rotate the crank handle, it will pick up the end of the clip and pop it off. (note: photo is from a different vehicle, but application is the same.) HTH

remove the door trim from the inside of the door, now remove the door plastic weather protector which should expose the window glass and also the electric motor and winder mechanism.
There will be a plastic wire connector inside the door which will have to be disconnected to remove the electric motor etc.
Hope this helps
There is a clip behind the window crank (winder). There is a special tool to slide behind the winder that pushes the clip out, the tool is not expensive and can be purchased at most parts stores. It is possible to remove the clip without the tool, but a little tricky (no brute strength!!!). The clip is thin (about the thickness of a heavy paper clip) and 'u' shaped. It slides onto the center backside of the winder. Gently push in the door panel while you gently pry out the winder. You may be able to grab the clip with some very narrow needle nose pliers, or use one or 2 flat thin screwdrivers to slide the clip off. Let me know how its goes.
Remove plastic studs from door closer. Unscrew three retaining screws. remove grab.
Unhook window winder retaining clip. Best done with small long-nose pliers. window winder retaining clip located inside plastic winder handle section. Will need to prise away winder handle from door slightly to expose clip. locate and gently pull clip from winder shaft.
unscrew door opener / lock assembly retaining screw.
gently prise lower trim retaining press studs from door. remove lower trim.
gently , from rear of door, pull upper trim from door and similtaniously prise upper trim press studs from door.
gently giggle door opener / lock assembly through upper trim . remove trim
gently with flat blade, peel off plastic dust sheeting.
access to inside off door is now possible.
Reassembly reverse of above
the door inside panel is screwed on in 3 or 4 places. look on the underside of the panel for a screw or two, and look for a screw cover underneath where the inner door handle is. pop the window switch assembly out of the door gently and unplug the wiring harness from it. it is possible to repair the window winder assembly inside the door, but its too hard a process for me to explain. if u can get the door panel off, but cant figgure out how to repair the winder assembly, then buy a new window winder assembly for around $120, to replace and not repair is the standard practice anyway, cause the winders are a pain to repair, and the repair is usually only temporary, they are technically non repairable, the repair is more like a mcguyver move.
There are most likely a couple of screws mabye hidden under a little plug or plastic cover around the door handle and on the under side of the panel.Then if it is a crank style window you will have to remove the window crank handle,after that there are plastic panle pop clips you will just have to pull on panle and they should pop out,then lift the panle up off the window door seal.
