Question about 1989 Chevrolet Caprice
How do I remove the door panels from a 1989 Chevrolet Caprice?
Hello Nufo :
I like to start by having a large piece of cardboard labeled for the door panel that i am removing . I use the cardboard to put all of the screws that are removed for easy reassembly .
You will need basic tolols like a phillips head screwdriver and blade screwdriver . If the are magnetic that would be a plus . you will also need special tools like a " Door Panel Trim removal tool /set " Or a " Trim Removal tool Set " . Or Panel clip removal Pliers
You will jave to remove the screws holding the armrest and power window switch(s) . You will also have to remove the screws holding the chrome like plastic of the interior door opener ( it looks a little square )
Also remove the screw on - door button/ usually " chrome looking " that goes up and down when you pull the door opener .
Once all of the screws are removed . I would check again and there is usually 1 or 2 more that you didn't see at first .
I would then disconnect the wiring for the window /power door lock switches .
Using the special tools listed above you will use the " Trim removal tool to remove the " clips " which are holding the panel to the door . The clips are located near the outer enge of the door panel every couple of inches .. Follow the instructions that come with the trim removal tools and pull gently .
Chances are 1 or more clips might break bue to their age and possible crystalization .
Lastly with all clips removed , You will have to lift the door panel up. Lift from the bottom up because it has a lip on top that is sitting on a seal like lip . It wouldn't be a bad idea to use a pair of jersy gloves when working on car doors .
Good Luck and I hope that this info has been of help to you .
