There are screws in the power window / door lock panel, speaker grill and under the little plastic squares. Remove all, there may be more panel screws once you remove those pieces (they hide the screws holding the panel). Then pry the panel off. There are usually some plastic clips that will likely snap. Also, some silicone calk is holding some plastic page like material in place. That silicone never dries so that can be a mess.

Replace,ent platic clips can be found at pepboys or the dealer. Cheaper at pepboys or even eBay.

Passenger side window motor replacement

Installing Passenger Side Power Window:
First of all there are only 2 - 9/32 bolts that hold the door panel on. One is located right behind the door handle in plain sight. The second is the one that eluded me and I ended up breaking the hook off the back of the's located under the switch panel. It's a snap to remove; just pry around on it and it comes right up. Once again; these are the ONLY 2 bolts holding the panel to the door. Snap the cover off that goes around the door opening handle and also the little triangular piece that's where the wing windows used to be on the older trucks. Also pull the plastic part that's over the door lock. Then gently lift straight up just a little and pull out towards you. The panel will come right out where you can then unplug the speaker wire and remove the bulb assembly from the door light at the bottom. 1 - 3/8 bolt holds the door handle on; remove the handle and set aside. Then strip the plastic off being careful not to tear it since this will be reused. This is to keep moisture out and road noise down. My problem was a broken cable so I could move my window up and down by hand, but you may have to plug the switch in to move yours to the right position. I think it's about 1/4 inch down where you can see the 2 - 3/8 bolts that hold the window to the regulator. Loosen these bolts then gently break the window free. Pull it all the way up and tape it there so it doesn't fall and break while you are removing the old unit and installing the new one. There are 6 - 3/8 bolts that hold the assembly in place and it's pretty easy to figure out which ones they are. Take these out and work the unit out through the large hole at the bottom. The new one goes in pretty much the same way only in reverse. After I got the 6 - 3/8 bolts back in place I plugged the window switch in and rolled the unit all the way up being careful to make sure the clamps were going to line up with the window. They did, so I took the tape off and slowly lowered the window where I could tighten the 2 clamps down on the glass. Put the plastic back on, then the door handle. Plug the speaker wire back in and put the light back in at the bottom of the door, then set the panel back in the holes. Mine wasn't hard at all. Reinstall the 2 - 9/32 bolts then plug the switch assembly in and snap back in place. Replace the rest of the plastic covers and you should be pretty much finished.

My window i thought came off track however when i got my panel off a little white piece was broken and my window wont stay up

That white peice could have possibly been on of the rollers from the regulator or a guide.
Sometimes you can purchse a new roller and it will need some pressure to snap it onto the pin. Or you can purchase a repair part that is the roller already on a pin and the old pin needs to be ground off from the back side (its like a rivet smashed onto the regulator or guide).
Then that white piece could have came from something else. Don't really know unless you look.

The plastic piece that is on the back of my passenger seat is loose and I can't get it to snap back in place. Is there a way to "snap" it back in place? Or a piece that might have broken off? I don't want...

use chemical metal to fill were the broken clip sits in, hold on for 10min till it drys or heavy duty bonding glue from your local auto suppliers.

I have a 2005 Dodge Caravan with automatic sliding doors. The passenger side has come off the track and I cannot get the rollers back into the right track. Can you help?

The brackets come in two pieces. One that rides in the track and one that bolts to the door. You need to undo the bolts holding the two parts together. Align the piece with the rollers back into the track and then bolt the two parts back together.

Passeger side rear window

Replace the guide with a good one from a auto wrecker. These are cheap, poorly built cars from South Korea. The front wheel drive Pontiac LeMans was also built by Daewoo which GM owns a share of, and they had lots of problems compared to the German built Opel Kadett/ UK built Vauxhall Astra that it was based on. You get what you pay for. My advice is to find a cheap source for parts or trade it in on something more reliable.

Replacing Passenger Window Motor

Hello, I have a 2004 Avl. I replaced the driver door window mechanism myself. You need to pry out the electric window controls with a dull blade as to not tear the vinyl. Disconnect the controls carefully. There are small release clips that hold the switch buttons onto the electric base. Then the arm rest, there is a long screw under the armrest. At the front towards the mirror there is a long screw under a round plastic snap cover. I believe it is a small metric bolt. Next grasp the bottom end of the door cover and pull with a sharp snap. Continue around the door panel gently pulling the snaps loose from their base. The door panel cover does not cantain screws only snaps. There is a clear plastic water barrior you need to be careful to peel without tearing and place on a clean flat surface with sticky side up. I had to replace the window track and motor all in one piece, can't just replace track. I purchaces the mechanism on-line parts store.
