Hi. Here's the procedure on how to remove the door panel.

  • 1 Use the door trim tool to carefully pry up the plastic window switch panel on the door. Remove the window switch panel and disconnect the electrical connector.
  • 2 Pry the cap from the ends of the door panel pull (if equipped) to access the screws. Remove the screws and take off the door pull.
  • 3 Insert the trim tool under the interior door handle plastic backing. Carefully pop the panel off and slide it off of the door handle.
  • 4 Remove the mounting screws from the side of the door panel (if equipped) and grab both sides of the door panel to remove it from the door. Panels without mounting screws are attached with clips; be careful not to break the clips.

    My driver's side window won't go down. When I push the switch up or down I hear the relay click, so that tells me the switch and relay are working. There is no hum or grinding noise like the motor is...

    When my lesabre did that I found that it was a bound up regulator wire the first time and a broken wire the second time. Probably will have to take door panel off and replace the regulator. Not a difficult job but due to poor regulator design it happens frequently. Good Luck! I have installed a total of 4 in the last 4 years on my lesabre (2002 model). Surprisingly, it was due to bad motor only once. - gary

    Loud Humming/Wheel Bearings?

    When you turn and hear a noise it is usually a CV Joint that is going bad. Humming can be a lot of things. Tires wheel bearings, rear end differential etc.

    Rear window wont go up. Motor works but seems to be binding

    The window regulator, is cable driven, the regulator will have to be replace, when the cable goes bad, that's the sound you hear, you can more then likely move the window up and down a little.

    Stuck rear window

    To remove the door panel there will be 2-5 screw bolts in places like the door handle and behind switch and handle panels. Remove them then teh panel will either lift straight up or pop out if it is held with panel plugs then use a flat pry tool to pop them out.

    It does sound like the regulator which is cable driven and will by basiclly held on the glass and the door with bolts. You will need to move the old motor to the new part.

    Rear window regulator broke

    The regulator is attatched to the glass using the rivets through plastic disks. You need to drill them out before the glass can be removed.Save the plastic parts for reassembly.Good Luck
