On the handle itself you will see a little **** on the side. You will have to pry up the top, and under there you will be able to ascess the other screws.

Remove citroen c3 rear door panel


Check out how the door panels are attached to the car. Most panels use screws and bolts but others have snap-in fittings. Gather all the tools you need for removing the door panels. If the panel is attached with screws and bolts, you need a screwdriver or ratchet and socket. Car door panels with snap-in fittings are easily removed with a flathead screwdriver.
Locate where the screws and bolts are before starting. These are usually found in the arm rest area, along the bottom or sometimes near the door lights.
Roll down the car door window. Begin removing all screws and bolts that hold the door panel onto the car. If your car has snap-in fittings, pry gently on the bottom corner of the door panel until the fittings pop out.
Remove the power window control panel if your car has power windows. The control panel should pry out easily, and then you unplug the wiring harness from the back and place it to the side.
Use an L pick and flashlight when locating a manual window crank. Look behind the window crank and slide the pick under the edge of the metal clip that holds the crank in place. Remove the clip and pull the crank off.
Remove the door handle by unscrewing the small screw located in the center. Gently pull the door handle out until you see the back of the handle and unclip the rod from the door handle. This should remove the handle unless the handle and door lock are attached, then you just unclip the rod from the lock and remove them both together.
Unscrew the cap off rear upper corner door panel locks. These don't have a rod attaching them to the handle and unscrew separately from the door handle.
Pop the door panel off after you've removed everything. Gently pry on the bottom edge of the door panel until it releases. Pull out and up to completely remove the door panel.

The door handle on the driver's side is broken...if you try to pull the handle the door does not open, you need to open it from the inside to get it open. How do we fix it?

Driver's inside door handle broke. How do I get


found this while looking to replace speakers:

DOOR WITH POWER LOCKS AND WINDOWS First remove the triangle piece in the top corner of the panel (piece closest to the outside mirror). This can be done with a plain screwdriver and just a little
prying and it will snap off. Second, remove the door lock inset, same screwdriver, little prying and it snaps out. Next remove the cover inside the door handle, same screwdriver, pry and snaps out
(turn it upside down and slide it off. Now you will need to remove the cover that holds the window
and door lock buttons, same screwdriver and pry upwards just a little and should pop off. Ok now you
will need a small socket to take out three screws. One is inside the button panel you just took off,
the second is inside corner of the door arm, (the handle you grab to shut the door, look under it,,
see it yet, yeah thats it). The last screw in on the very bottom of the whole door panel, you will
have to get on your hands and knees to see this one (yeah thats it right there). Now would be a good
time to remove the door light on the corner, same screwdriver, pry from the red lens side outward,
once out, remove the wire termial. Ok.... now grab the under side of the panel where that last screw
was and lift upwards, apply a little more pressure till the panel pops upward about an inch. Now your
door panel is loose, you can lift it off a little but you will need to remove the wire from the tweeter.
The termial has a locking tab you need to press down to remove it.

Need to remove door panel drivers door bonneville 1999. my goal to replace outside mirror. thank you,


Door panels are about the same they have always been.
You first remove the things attached, like handles, etc.
Most have screws, either recessed or covered by plastic plugs.
Door handle may have spring clip that requires a hook or special tool for, but you can improvise. Just push panel in to get a better look around handle shaft.

Once you have all the extra stuff off, then pop all the little plactic or metal clips around the front, back and bottom edges. It helps to use something a little wide, to not scratch or break panel. Each clip snaps into hole.

But the top is different, and hooks over the metal door inner shell. It has to be lifted upwards, after unscrewing door lock button, if there is one. The bottom of the panel has to be held out enough to clear handle shafts as you lift up.

Driver's door panel removal trouble


I believe that you will need to remove that trim piece to access some screws. Check in door handle pocket to see if there may be a small cover hiding a screw.

Need to replace driver side mirror on 2005 Durango Limited Editio


On the inside trim, you can 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. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
