1998 Pontiac Firebird Door Schematics

I have shaved doors... so no handle. Thats the first problem. The window is broke so it won't go up or down, it's cracked about 3/4 way cloes. Some one tried to break into the car and manually locked the door. THe locked hung up and now the door is locked and won't open. You can't take the door panel off to fix the lock unless the door is open. Did I mention it's the drivers door. HELP PLEASE!!! i can't find any diagrams to locate the lock position.

    THe cylinoid/air valve in both doors are faulty. So the magic back up button does not help.

If you have shaved door handles, usually there is a manual opener somewhere close. Some people install them under the car so it can be popped with your foot or sometimes they're located in the wheel well.

97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door


Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

My passanger side window won't go down all the other windows work a year ago i replaced both window switches


You may have a broken track. You need to take the door apart and have a look behind the inside door handles.

You may have a broken wire that goes to the door from the main body. Take a look at the area where the hinges are. You will see a rubber boot. In that boot are wires that go to your door. One of them may be broke.

Even though you have new switches it is possible that on of them has gone bad and may need to be replaced again.

Good Luck

The passenger side window, something broke down in the door, the motor for the power windows still works, but there is nothing holding the window up? What broke? Is it a do it yourself job to fix it?


Its the window regulator thats broke. Most are made with plastic brackets and cable. The plastic breaks and the cable goes nuts then nothing is holding the window. You need to get a regulator, if you can take the door panel off you should be able to handle installing the window regulator.

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.

How to replace '96 Ford Explorer driver side exterior door handle


You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.
