How to remove rear door panel on 2003 Chevrolet Malibu?

I need to replace the rear window drive mechanism on a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu. How do I remove the rear door panel on the rear door on the driver's side? The rear window has slipped, and I need to determine if the window has slipped, or I need a new drive mechanism, then replace the rear door panel.

    I am not sure if your window is manual or powered but my manual window has just fallen into the door. There was no resistance on the handle and I heard parts falling inside the door. I also have no idea how to open the panel to see if I can put it back together or need new parts.

How do I remove the inside panel on back door of 2003 Malibu LS?


why don't you go to ebay and find a rear window regulator first. buy that and take it to an auto glass
shop which you find in the yellow pages. tell them the cable on your regulator broke, here is a brand new one, swap them for me. they have the tools and the know how to pull the panel replace it and give it back to you for about 60 bucks. there are special tools and fasteners needed, and since about every GM product 95-05 suffers that problem they have done this hundreds of times before.

How to replace a left side outside mirror on 2005 malibu


You'll need to remove your door panel (screws are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door) and then remove the cover that is right above the panel adjacent to the mirror. remove the bolts holding the mirror down and reverse to put it back together

Passenger front window motor


remove the door panel. you probably need to remove the door handle and window controls first... look for screws and take them out. careful not to lose them. the door panel should be connected by snaps around the whole perimeter of the door, just pop these one at a time until the panel comes off. you should see the window motor and everything should be pretty obvious from there.

Drivers door panel removal


The book says 1. remove power accesory switch panel by using suitable flat blade tool at front. 2. Disconnet electrical connections.
3. pry door handle plug by using small flat bladed tool
4.remove door trim handle mounting screws
5. remove door trim panel from retainers.Start at rear bottom corner and pry outward.
6. remove door panel.
KD does make a tool that will properly pry the door panel away from reainers. KD 3705 You might get by with a screwdriver.
One other thing you may need to have the window down to get the panel to come off. You will have to lift up on it once it is loose from the fastners.
Hope this helps you out.

Rear passenger window just slides how do I get the door panel off


Well first take the mirror cover off. Then the roll up window handle if its manual. There is a star head behind the handle to open the door, remove that and unplug all wiring.Then behind the handle to close the door there is a cover, it has 2 screws, take those out and the rest is just plastic door clips just pull away from the door and they will start coming off.

Removal of rear window


The bad news is when the cable comes loose it normally means some plastic retaining part has broken, so you will need a new or at least a replacement regulator (which is the cable mechanism that rolls the window up and down). This will bolt both to the door and to the window. I would leave the window in the door and just tape it up once you have it unbolted from the regulator.
