How do i take door panel off?

remove all the hardware from inside door panel first, window roller handle or electric switch panel, and door handle, then you need to pry all the grommets out of the hole's they fit into down both sides and across the bottom, the panel then needs to come straight up and off, they make a simple little tool to pry the grommets loose, can be purchased at most any auto parts store, like shucks or Napa Harbor Freight also has them cheap.

Need to take inside door panil off

There are some hidden screws by door handle and by the mirror. Remove all the screws you see, pop loose the plastic by door handle and locks. Then with the door open, slowly and carefully pry around the panel until it loosens up and comes off.

Driver side window does not crank up straight

It sounds like the window may have slipped off it's guide rail or support rail. The window base connects to the motor via some bars that resemble a scissor lift.

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. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to everything

Replace glass, drivers door on 1997 GMC 1/2 ton Truck ,2wd, Power windows

The door panel is held onto the door with clips but first you need to remove the screws from the grab handle on the door panel. then pop the bezel off around the inside door handle. very carefully!!! then using a clip tool pry off the peice that covers the rear view mirror nuts and pry gently all the way around the door panel until its loose then lift it up slightly to unseat the window channel strip off the door, then unhook your wires. As for the window roll it up, tape it to the door then line up the 2 10mm bolts that clamp it to the regulator with the provided holes in the door, loosen 'em up roll the regulator down and remove the window. Have fun guys!!!

Door handle replacement

OK. The door handle has one screw that holds it in place. after removeing the screw the unit will be lose so to speak. You will also have to remove the window handle as well. The window handle can be removed with a screwdriver and a pair of needle nose pliers. first put the screw driver tto the back side of the window handle. Press gentlly against the door panel so you can see the "C" clip which you will need to remove. After removing the "C" clip and the window handle you are ready to remove the door panel which is just snapped on to the door with several plastic pins which should unsnap easily. It wouldn't hurt to use your srewdriver to aid in unsnaping the pins. once you have the door panel off you should be able to see how the old door handle is connected. good luck
