Well i have the same problem my Left side rear window came off the track so i took the door panel off. The door panel comes off by taking two srews out that are behind the lower handel off the door. The upper silver handel has a black peace off plastic behind it it is held on by clips. also you have to take the little peace of the lock thing that pops up. After you get the two screws out grad the door panel below the speaker and give it a good pull once it pops out you can take the peace out thats behing the silver handle. After you get the door panel to pop out you have to left it up. I think i need new parts so i will take it to the dealer. the door works with a pully and a cable the cable in my door is all twisted up.

I used a slim jim to unlock my door and now it can't be unlocked using the key. I read that the lock rods may be detached but I can't figure out how they were attached to begin with. What do I do?

If you've taken the door panel off, you should be able to find the lock rod just tangling in the door freely. There are a couple of different ways it could attach depending on what kind of car your working on.
  • The end of rod could be straight with a threaded end. There would be a plastic clip on the lock that would snap around the threaded end to hold it in place.
  • If the end of the lock rod is L shaped then the plastic clip on the lock would have a hole in the center of it. Insert the L shaped end into the hole and then the plastic clip will have a tail that will swivel around and clip onto the lock rod to lock it into place.
  • There's also a chance you could have broken the plastic clip with your slim jim and it's laying in the bottom of the door. In that case you would have to get a new clip.

What kind of car is this?

Rear tailgate will not ublock

I know what has happened but I'm not sure how you could repair it without getting the door open itself. The release handle has come free of the Release latch mechanism. Unfortunately to repair this you will need to get the door open and remove the Interior panel to access the handle and bar area to reconnect them. This occurs over time as they are made of plastic and plastic eventually wears out. (The handle end of the connection anyway) In order to replace the handle you have to access the bolts or nuts that hold it in place. You then need to reconnect the release bar that is most likely laying in the bottom of your door.

Rear electric window will notwork

Yes . Remove door panel, switch connectors and plastic protective covering on the door. have a helper pull the windw up while you measure the distance from bottom of window regulator to bottom of door panel.
(approx 8-12"), cut a block of wood that will fit between the bottom of the regulator to bottom of door panel wedge it threw the opening in the door a place it between the regulator and door bottom. Wood is soft and sturdy and should hold up until you get the window fixed.
Can the driver control panel switch make that window work. If the answer is No then the problem is the motor on that side. If the answer is yes then the problem is the switch on that window. by the way if the driver control panel gets the window to rise Merry Christmas you don't need the wooden block.

How do i replace a window. i can't get the door panel off.

you need to remove a couple screws, usually in the door latch area and door pull area, these are normally covered with a plastic cap. you will need a flat blade screw driver or flat pry bar, start at the bottom, disconnect the door lights if any and unplug the window switch. when removing, the panel will make a snapping or popping noise. this is normal. depending on the front or rear, there are usually two screws attaching the window to the PW base. you will need to carefully remove the plastic lining on the door. After you have taken out the screws reconnect the PW connection ad lower the base, remove the glass and re assemble as you have taken apart, Best of Luck!
