All my vehicles I try and do as much I can myself I always purchase the factory service manual as this is what the dealer mechanics use and has basically every nut and bolt on the car.

A small price to pay for the extensiveness of the information.
Hope this helps.

    Tools required
    10 mm socket and 3" extension
    #2 phillips screwdriver
    putty knife
    wire cutter
    door panel removal tool - available from any auto parts store
    straight blade screwdriver

    This procedure assumes a new unit will be installed.

    1 - remove trim piece from around the door handle by prying it out along the top and front edges. Once loosened, it comes unhinged from the back edge.
    2 - remove the phillips head screw from metal bracker, that is revealed after removing the trim piece
    3 - pry the inside light assembly from the door panel and remove the bulb socket from the housing
    4 - pry the door panel from the frame using a panel removal tool by starting at the bottom (this GM design is greatly improved from the old assembly system - ie: 94 Chevy Caprice) and releasing the 7 plastic studs from the frame.
    5 - Remove the 2 mounting bolts for the rear door controller and disconnect the cables.
    6 - use a putty knife and door removal tool to remove the plastic vapor barrier.
    7 - reach inside the door and locate the cable that is attached to the bottom of the lift mechanism and then cut it.
    8 - push the window class to the full UP position (this will locate it horizonally and vertically) and tape it in place.
    9 - near the top of the sheet metal there will be 2 openings (1 square and 1 round). When the glass is in the full up position, there will be (2) 10 mm bolts in view. Loosen these bolts which will open the rubber coated clamps on the bottom of the glass. The lift mechanism will free fall to the bottom position when these bolts are loose.
    10 - remove the window lift motor plug and (3) 10 mm nuts that hold the lift mechanism in place and remove through the opening at the front of the inner door sheet metal. It will take a little bit of turning and twisting to remove the unit.
    11 - loosen (do not remove) the 2 bolts for the window clamps on the new unit before installing.
    12 - make sure the new unit is not in the full up position before installing.
    13 - install the new lift mechanism in the door and tighten the (3) 10 mm mounting nuts.
    14 - connect the power plug into the new lift motor
    15 - temporarily connect the rear door controller, turn on the ignition and slowly raise the new lift mechanism using the window up switch on the driver's door.
    16 - when the lift is in the full up position, tighten the window glass clamps using the same access holes as when you removed the glass clamps.
    17 - slowly cycle the window down and up to make sure it doesn't bind
    18 - disconnect the read door controller and reverse the process for assembly
    19 - make sure the rear door light socket and bulb are not trapped behind the plastic.

    Hope this is the one.....

First you need to remove the inner door panel, it will be held on by screws and clips.

I just bought a 2002 Buick LeSabre And it's making a grinding knocking noise in the rear right corner where the exhaust is the emergency brake light wont go off and the e-brake is not on!!


Right rear wheel may have worn out or damaged brake pads or rotor...You should be able to spin this wheel freely when off of the ground...if not brake parts, then the wheel bearing is bad...(locking up) Hope this helps.

Instructions on how to remove a rear door panel


Firstly, if you don't know how...I doubt you can remove it anyway. Take it to your local car stereo installation shop and ask them NICELY to take it off - explain what the problem is (lemme guess the window/lock doesn't work).
Good Luck
