Once you have removed the door handle and all the trim try wedging a flat chisel between the panel and the door at the lower corners. Work your way around, from the bottom to the top and pop out the plastic clips. Then once the panel is free, it should pop up at the window seal.

How do i remove the door panel on a 1998 buick regal front driver side.


  • In the door handle "finger well" remove the plastic cover with a screw driver.
  • Remove 2 screws (they may be torx or regular hex bolts).
  • Remove Philips screw from behind the inside door opener lever.
  • slightly and slowly, pull back on the plastic triangle that is on the back side of the outside rear view mirror. It will stay attached to the door panel, but you need to release the catch nipple from the door.
  • Now, pull out on the edges all around the bottom, front, and back of the door panel ( you may need a putty knife or something similar to get your fingers in and start pulling).
  • once the door is loose, lift up slowly on the door panel until it is free of the door (don't pull too hard or far as there are still 3 wire bundles attached).
  • Unclip the door light plug on the back and the locks and windows switch plugs towards the front.
  • Reverse for install.

How to remove a door panel on a 1995 pontiac grand


I have info on a 96 power door glass.....should be very simular. the triangle piece at the top front is just clipped on, the plastic piece around the opener handle is just clipped on. in the pull handle there are two screws, and the plastic piece just pops up. under the red reflector the is a screw. There is a "U" clip behind your window crank, remove this clip and the crank will pull straight out. (use a screw driver to open the gap between the crank and the door panel, to see the clip, Use a hook tool too remove the clip...you can also use a cloth or panty-hose in the gap and turn the crank, the cloth will grab the edge of the clip and pop it off)
after removing all the clips and screws the door panel is held on with plastic plugs, just pull the panel sraight out toward youself.
hope this helps.

Cant remove door pannel on driver side 04 gmc seirra


1. Remove the door handle bezel.

2. Insert a flat-bladed tool between the door handle bezel and the trim panel in order to release the handle bezel tab retainers.

3. Remove the door trim panel upper extension.

4. Release the upper extension by pulling outward on the front edge in order to release the upper retainer clips.

5. Remove the upper extension from the trim panel by lifting up and out.

6. Using a suitable flat bladed tool, gently pry the manual lock lever from the door trim panel. Remove the trim panel screw.
*Remove the screw (2) from within the opening where the manual door lock lever resides.
*Remove the screw (3) from the opening in front of the armrest.
*Remove the screw located beneath the map pocket, if equipped.

7. Carefully slide the trim panel up in order to release the retainers from the door. Disconnect the electrical connectors.

Note: the top part of the door panel is not separate from the bottom. The "upper extension" is just the small triangle piece directly behind the mirror on the interior.

Simplified instructions
Remove the bezel around the door handle.
Pry out the manual lock.
Remove the 3 or 4 screws depending on options
Slide the door panel up off of the engagement tabs.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Need to remove inside door panel on drivers side 1999 chevy silverado z-71 3 door new body style


just pop out the triangle piece from the top at the top front of the door panel with a flat head screwdriver. Then simply pop out the door lock cover from the aft side and the door handle cover from the aft side as well. Then pop up your cap containing the auto door locks and windows and disconnect the cannon plugs. Then just remove 2 screws (1 from under the door lock/window cap and one just insde the door handle itself. You'll then life up and towards you to remove the panel. Don't pull it too far out because you'll still need to disconnect the speaker cannon plug and pull out the door open light at the bottom aft of the panel. You can then set the door panel off to the side.

How to remove front door panel on volvo s60 t5 2002 driver side


Pop the grab handle cover off, two different styles.

1. With a slot under the grab handle, take a small screw driver off and gently push up, it should just pop out.

2. Simple cover that can be separated with a bone tool or similar so you don't chip the cover piece.

Behind that you will find two Torx 25 screws, Take those out.

Around the edge of the panel should be around 8 plastic rivet type of thing.

Again...two different styles.

1. With center pins that blend in perfectly with the rivet. Should be about 3/32nds diameter. Push the center in and the rivet deals should pop out. Be sure not to lose the center piece...easy to lose.

2. Same deal but with a larger center pin.

Take the plastic triangle piece near the upper right hand area as facing the panel.

Pull bottom away from door and up to release from top section of door.

Careful removing the cable for the door lock release, and remove the connectors from the tweeter and driver's door module.
