Driver side door will not open

Stop by your local Chevy/Cadillac/GMC dealership and talk to the part guy. Take a look at the diagram of the door latch mechanisms and he will sort it out with you probably, free of charge. These types of failures normally are not anomolies and he/she may be able to tell you of someone else who has had this issue and what the problem is.
Buy the needed part and take your door apart to replace the broke linkage. If you dont feel comfortable with that, take it to someone who does.

Do you have to remove door panel to replace driver side handle on 2000 escalade have roll down window to open door

janice, sorry to say but yes the panel has to come off and if it's your first time be carefull you can damage the panel. it has clips holding it on on the sides and vbottom, no big deal just pull in a short **** and it will snap loose, a couple of the plastic clips will break for sure, no big deal, local parts store will have them on hand for sure, once all are loose the panel will slide "up" over the top of door frame. with a few elec connectors to dis connect the panel will be out of your way. you can either replace the handle itself or the whole assembly. if you want the chrome handle is 80 bucks, if you decide 16 bucks for a gray one will do just as good go for it. and they will have to order the chrome and have the gray one in stock. hope this helps, and it's fairly difficult to just replace the handle with the spring being a ****** sometimes, and the assy you will need a drill and rivit gun to replace it. hope this helps!!!

How do i change a side view mirror in a 2002 cadillac escalade?

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 remove the bolts securing the mirror to the door

2000 escalade ext ...only rear air conditioning ..nothing from front panel...only ambient air from front ...why?

Sounds like you have a door mode actuator failed. This is fairly common. Sometimes the door actually breaks. You may have to remove the whole HVAC box to fix it if the door broke

Driver door panel removal and re-connect door pull

You most likley have a damaged inside door handle. To remove the door panel, you must first remove the handle bezel. The trim piece around the handle. It is held in place by 4 retainer tabs, take a small flat screw driver, insert it between the bezel and handle. Gently pry away from the handle. If you look in the crack around the handle you will see the tabs. When you get that off, remove the switch assembly by prying up on it gently, unplug the wiring. There are 2 screws in the door panel where you pull the door shut, remove those also. Start at the bottom front of the door panel, pull outward firmly, but not violent. The retainers will come out, you will most likley break some, this is common. The inside handle is about $45 from your dealer. If it is the handle it is held in with 1 rivit, drill it out with a 3/16 drill. Replace the handle, reassemble. Good Luck.
