Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire
I got all of my stick things out but i cant take off the window roll down thing so my door panel will not come off do u know how to take it off?
To take off the door pannel you must take out the 4 screws at the bottm of the pannet and the 2 hex screws under the armrest. then you must pry out the clips around the edges, i sued a flat head screw driver, and then unhook your wiring. To take the window off of the regulator you must position the window, most of the way down, and remove the 2 bolts holding the window clips to the regulator. DO NOT DRILL OUT THE RIVETS IN THE WINDOW. you may have to reposition the window to get the second bolt. Once that is done your window will be free and you will either have to take it out or hold it up with or door stop, or, I used a small peice of 1x2 to wedge the window up.
To take the regulator assembly out, which you must to get to the window motor, Undo the bolts and drill out the 3 rivets holding it to the door(you car replace these rivets with bolts later to make the next time easier) then unscrew the regulator bar from the scizzor joint and pull it out, the rest is self explanitory and installation is the reverse of this.
I used the haynes Repair manual i got for $20.00 at Advance Discount Auto Parts
I suggest you buy the book, it helps alot.
And if all else fails, take it to a mechanic, but thats only last resort.
Hope this helps,
