First, remove the trim around the inside door handle. Simply push on the trim and slide back (twardthe rear of the car.

If you are removing the driver's side panel you must remove the sideview mirror adjustment panel. Simply pry this up with a screwdriver and pull to disconnect. In that hole you will see a phillips screw. Remove that screw.

There are about 7 pins on the back of the door panel lining the bottom and sides. Take a flathead screwdriver wrap the tip in tape or with a piece of cloth so you dont scratch the little bit of paint that you see, and starting from either corner insert the screwdriver behind the door panel. Pry one of the pins out, then move on to the next. Get the screwdriver as close to the pins as possible to avoid warping the door panel. Get a few new pins from the dealership (roughly 50 cents each) because it is normal to break a few. They are just plastic.

After removing all of them from the door, simply lift up on the door panel to finish the job.

My back doors on my 1997 ford explorer will not open, from the inside or the out side, what is the best way to open the back doors with out damiging them?


if it has gone on the link arm best way is from inside but you may damage the door cover you have to lift the cover some times you can just get to the screws and remove them all depends on the lineament of the back door, if you cannot get to it from that side then the only way is from the part were the it goes over the bottom of the window but you may need a new card after. or could try a metal coat hanger from inside the window down the side to the lock make a smaller hook on one end and hope for the best. best to doit with the window as far down as you can get it.

I need to replace the driver and passenger side mirrors on a 1990 Ford Mustang. They are power windows. Any suggestions?


Yes,
1.- You may go to a dealer and they will do the job, for a significant price.

2.- If you have the tools and the practice to assemble or dismantle mechanical parts, this will be an easy one for you.
You have to remove the interior covering on the doors, One at a time. Bring the glass up to close the window to have a better space to work and identify the wires and connections that drive the mirrors. Make a simple sketch on the colors of the wires and their points of connection, you can even leave little pieces of masking tape, with a sign on where it has to be connected.
Once you have this done, dismantle the wires and the nuts and bolts that keep the mirror in place, putting them back into their place to make sure they will be at the proper place when assembly will come.
Take the whole old part to the dealer or a similar replacement source and open the box, to make sure that you receive the very same part. Go back home and follow your assembly colors and numbers according with the sketch you have. Attach first the solid supports, using the same bolts and then connect the cables properly, following your masking tape notes. when wires are ready, turn on the switch and test if the mirrors are moving smoothly or if some wire was not at its proper place. Place the covering parts back in place and test everything again. Do the other door.
You are ready.

Good Luck...!

2000 Silverado Exterior Door Handle


If you have the panel off, just look up at were the outside door handle is mounted. You need to unbolt the rest of what is left....usually a metric fastner. Next, there should be 2 small access holes, probably covered by plastic sheeting. These holes are for the socket to reach them. There are a few clips that need to be popped loose from the rods but take your time and use a thin flat tipped screwdriver. And when you go to reinstall the new handle, you'll have to manipulate the handle into the door skin or the "hole" where the door handle goes.

Just take your time and you can do this.

Good luck!

 I think you are talking about the speaker grille.  Which is the cover for to protect the speaker and not actually the speaker. You would have to remove the door panel to see the speaker, unless trhey are aftermarket speakers.  In which case a stereo shop would have these.  If it is a stock speaker.  Then this is part of the door panel . Try a auto dismantler in your area.
