    Here's the procedure on how to remove Door Panel



    Front Door Panel

    1 Twist and unscrew the single screw within the inner door handle using a screwdriver and pull out the door handle bezel.

    2 Pry off the sail panel from the door (rear door only) using a trim stick.

    3 Remove all of the door panel's retaining screws, including the ones along the edges, the one in the pull handle and the ones behind the small, circular screw covers that you need to pull off.

    4 Pry the trim panel off the door with the trim stick to disengage the clips from the door. Disconnect the electrical connectors behind the panel and remove it.

    5 Peel away the plastic water shield that is between the door and the trim panel.


    Rear Door Panel

    1 Release the clip for the rear door latch's electrical connector and unplug the connector.

    2 Unscrew the Torx bolts for the window glass's top run channel; these bolts are in the bottom left corners of the two door openings. Lift the run channel out of the door.

    3 Disconnect the outer handle's screws--they are accessible from the inside of the door--pull off the cover at the end of the door handle and slide the handle to the rear to remove it.

    4 Unscrew and loosen the remote control assembly, then unclip and remove the door handle's actuating rod.

    5 Remove the three mounting screws for the door latch on the door's outer edge and discard them. Remove the latch, lift and slide the cable conduit from the inner handle, disconnect the door handle cable, pry off the handle clips with a trim stick and remove the handle.

    6 Clip the door handle in place and connect the handle cable and cable conduit. Reinstall the latch using new Torx screws on the outer edge with your Torx wrench, then connect the actuating rod.

    7 Retighten the remote control assembly with its screw and your Torx wrench.

    8 Slide the outer door handle into place on the door, connect the door handle cover and apply the handle's screws from the inside.

    9 Lower the window glass's top run back into the door and secure it with its two bolts, then connect the latch's electrical connector.

    10 Reconnect the trim panel in the reverse order of removal.

Rear window wiper stopped working. It clicks when I turn it on and off. It has stalled at the mid window position. How do I remove the motor and drive assembly from the rear window.


It sounds like you have a broke window regulator. I can't give you specific instructions for your vehicle because you did not mention exactly what vehicle you are talking about. (Year, Make, Model, etc.)

Basicly, it goes like this:
Remove the door panel. Disconnect elecrical connectors as necessary.
Remove the inner moisture barrier.
Remove the bolts holding the window regulator to the glass and pull the glass up to the top of the track and use duct tape over the top of the door and down both sides of the glass to hold it in the up position.
NOTE: you may have to cut the cables to the regulator to get the glass to come up into a position where you can access the bolts.
Remove the electrical connector to the window lift motor.
Remove the bolts securing the window lift motor and the window regulator and remove the motor and regulator assembly.
Reverse procedure to install.

My VW passat 2001 model has passenger door electric window stuck. I can hear the motor running on the door. How can I fix this problem.


The window regulator or plastic tabs attached to the glass is likely broken and will need to be replaced, if you can hear the motor running but the glass does not move. If you're handy with fixing cars, you can purchase a window regulator and change it out fairly easily by removing the door panel and swapping the regulator out. If the plastic tabs on the glass are broken, you will have to take it to an auto glass shop to have new tabs replaced on the glass.
