Remove outside mirror on 2012 chevy traverse

You need a special puller for the inside door panel. Have to go to an autoparts store for it. Then you take out all the screws on the door panel. The you use the puller on the bottom and sometimes the sides to LOCATE and REMOVE the fasteners..Lift the panel up and away from the door. Careful about any wires that might be connected to switches. Unplug those if present. You will now be looking at a sheet of sound deadening material that has a tar like substance on it. You cannot really save this and it is messy. remove it and then you can see the internal door and window parts. Be careful because the parts are sharp. Long sleeves and gloves are recommended. See if you can reach in under the window and feel for the bolts. If you cannot then the window has to be removed. Locate and remove the glass retainer and remove the window. Then remove any bolts holding the window mechanical parts. Then you should be able to get to the bolts for the mirror.

How do I remove the left rear door panel from a 1996 Nissan Maxima? The window just fell down. It can be manually lifted up, but it slides back down again. It no longer mechanically works. If you can...

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable(for safety if you have power locks and windows)
  • At the bottom of the door panel remove the two screws
  • Pry up at the front edge of the power window switch pod and lift it out then unplug the electrical connector
  • Remove the inside door handle
  • Remove the screw in the door pull pocket
  • Pull the door panel away from the door far enough to disconnect the electrical connectors

How do you get the front door panel off of a 2003 ford explorer xlt to replace the mirror

1. on the inside, remove the plastic trim that is directly inside of the left side rear view mirror.. should just snap off.
2. remove the lens from the reflector/courtesy lamp on the door.
3. pop the plastic trim holding the window switches ...pull up on the front edge (closet to hood) and tip it up until you can release the back edge of the switch plate.
4. unhook the wire connections from the switches... look for the lock tab release lever...they're color coded and only fit in one location so don' worry about where they go..
5. There are two small screws to below where the switches were, and the other behind the lens of the reflector on the door.
Once you get these out, lift straight up on the panel and it will unhook from the slots in the door.
6. unplug the courtesy light from it's spot in the door panel by twisting.
that should get you there!

Replacing speakers in Mitsubishi Galant

If the car is an 03 galant it is very simple to remove.
Remove the window crank if it is not Electric Window.
Remove the Screw that holds the "Open Door Handle" cover.
Remove the Screw that holds the "Pull Handle Pocket"
Remove both plastic covers.
Remove all 3 hidden crews that have a plastic cover over them.
One is toward the front of the door top and the other two are toward the rear of the door top and bottom side.
Carefully pry around the door trim panel to disengage it from th retaining clips, along the sides and bottom. If you have electric windows, disconnect the if from the door trim to access the speaker. Same procedure for both doors.

Buick LeSabre left front window will not close

Don it. Good half day for amateur. Get Chilton 86-99 Bonneville, 88, Lesabre manuel.. Tricky to find bolts are under end flaps on door close handgrips. Took me a day to figure that one out. Others under light at lip of back of door. Book indicates to strart with window 3/4 up if you can. Flip up window control at rear of panel. After all screws are out raise outer edge of armrest and look for notches 4" and 11-1/2" from rear of armrest to slide inward to remove. There are screws under the door handle too. Screws everwhere. When pulling bottom of panel from door lift with a notched bar to avoid tearing the fasteners out of the cardboard panel. Two screws behind seatbelt notch at top need to come out to allow positioning the glass. The panel at the bottom of the top opening can be removed for more fredom in positioning the glass when reinserting the ball in the lower track on the window. Tape glass with duct tape to keep it from falling. Drill the factory rivets that hold the old regulator and I replaced with stove bolts with nylon locknuts slotted head to the inside the car. Can't remember the size, probably 1/4 or 3/16". Remove speaker if in front bottom of door to use your hand to do work in the door. You must twist the regulator forward with window 1/2 down to remove the ball from the socket in the bottom sliding metal track at the bottom of the window. Don't drop the window after removing the socket, tape it in place. Don't know what you do if you cannot move it to 1/2 up position. By the way, the body shops say you must use rivets, not screws or it will shift, but I have had no problems with the screws for reinstallation several years old. The rivet they use take a big hydraulic pop rivet gun that you won't have. Good luck, I don't envy you. Need to do other window on my 91. The window control may not be the same on the Custom, mine is the Ltd. you may be able to remove the motor from the regulator in the door without removing the regulator if you can figure out how to get the bolts that hold the moter to the regulator. inside the door.
