SOURCE: mazda 2003 MPV door locks

I just fixed this same problem. It happened to me 3 different times in a month so I got good at it. Before you dive into removing your door try this. Pull the door handle and release it letting it snap back several times. The problem is a half open door latch that won't let the door unlock. Do this as aggressively as you can to attempt to get the latch to return to its original position. Check the door lock between flicks.

Ok, if that didn't work, here is how to remove the door.
1. Remove the screw behind the door latch, you will have to pop the plastic cover off first.
2. Remove the rubber insert in the door handle
3. Remove the screw that is now visible
4. Now remove the window/lock control module, the back is free but the front has a plastic lip so lift the back up and pull towards the back of the van.
5. Remove the clips that attach to the lock and to the window controls (these can be a pain)
5. (Optional) Remove the bracket that held the window/lock control module

At this point your door is basically free, it is only held in place with plastic clips that can be easily forced off. If your door were open you would simple pull the bottom of the door out (hinged at the window) and lift it off. But since we can't pull because the door is closed we have to force it out.

From here it is pretty simple. Move the seat all the way back and tip the seat way back. Lift the door panel straight up. You will be breaking 2 plastic clips from the rear part but once you do it just pulls out. This is not that easy because the space is limited but just keep pulling and force the rear end of the door panel past the b-pillar. Once you do this it is free.

Have fun and try to keep the black gook from getting everywhere.

Oh, to fix the door lock just oil/grease it and manually move the mechanism several times.

SOURCE: Mazda 5 replacing external handle on sliding door

Your door should be held on with clips. Removing the panel is sometimes hard, just take a good WIDE flat head screwdriver, and whatever tool needed to remove the screws holding the panel on, and be careful. Check underneath the panel, by the inside handle, and the arm point for screws. Once removed, take your WIDE screw driver, and don't quite pry them off, more or less try to get it underneath and pull towards yourself. There is no real easy way, just try to be patient with it, and if you hit any binds, look for more screws, its just a matter of patience for sure.

SOURCE: 2001 tahoe door panel

THE COUTESY LAMP IS HOT DUE TO THE DOOR BEING OPEN WHILE THIS PROCEDURE IS DONE!!!! First: Remove the triangle panel at the top of the door (behind the mirror). This is held in with two metal clips about half way down the panel. Do not pry at the bottom as there are two tabs that slide in to keep the module in place. I pulled the top of the triangle out by hand then could see the clips and used a straight screw driver to carefully pry from under the triangle panel so as not to scar the visible part after re-assembly. Once these two clips are disengaged the triangle should pull straight up and be free. Second: Carefully pry out the door lock insert. There are no significant tabs to worry about here. Again a straight screw driver and care should not leave any scars. The lock insert has no mechanical connection but simply is used to slide the lock rod. Re-installing you will need to align the slot for the rod in the lock or unlock position depending on the rod position. Third: Carefully pry out the insert that is located at the door handle. Start at the rear of the insert as this is where the clips are located and once the rear is out pull open the door handle and pull the insert to the rear so as not to break off the two front tabs. You will find two small screws (mine were black). One near the front and one at the rear of the door handle module. Both are 7 mm and are the only ones that need to be remove in the process. (I understand some door panels have an other screw at the very bottom of the door as well; guess you'll have to check you door. Fourth: Pry up the control panel for the automatic windows and unplug the wires. Here again start from the rear and once the rear is free pull the module to the rear and it should come free. There are tabs at the front that you do not want to break off. To unplug the wires - First remove the clips (mine were blue) that hold the plug in place. There is also a push catch on the plug that must be depressed to release the plug from the control panel. Fifth: My door had no push in 'buttons' or clips to hold the door panel in place. It simply lifted up and became free with the exception of the numerous wires attached to things like the speakers, the remote mirrow and courtesy light. Unplug these wires by first taking off any retaining clips (usually blue) and then unplug the wires. The courtesy light pulls straight out (toward the front) and watch your fingers as this is one hot little bulb. The door panel can then be totally removed and set aside. You may find it easier to remove the courtesy light lens by prying out the rear first and then pulling it toward the back of the door so as not to break the two front clips. I found it easier to do this and then install the bulb in the lens and then install the lens back in place. Six: I'm sure I don't need to say it but here goes - ' reverse the procedure to re-assemble'. Remember to poke the courtesy light wire out the hole and re-connect the remote mirror and speaker wires before the door is put in place. The wires to the window and electronic lock module can be installed after the door is back in place. Working by myself made the door difficult to handle during re-installation so I took a 'light' bungy cord and placed some protection over the top of the door and hooked the bungy into the opening were the door handle was to come through. This allowed me to steady the door and do the electrical connections as required. PS - we were replacing the power window motor and were able to 'force' the cable into the gears of the new motor by turning the motor and this saved a lot of further disassembly. The contacts on the new motor were reversed so I removed the pins from the plug going into the motor and reversed them - presto.

SOURCE: remove door panel

Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.

Hey, I just use a metal zipstrip. Cheap and easy. Look on youtube for Prizm handle replacement. You basically slip it under the current handle and slip it in the zip buckle to make a loop. It's ghetto but works and does not use duct tape unlike most Red Green type "solutons".

take off handles using screw driver and remove screws so you can pry off door panel clip pins to access inside. Just be careful to not damage the window or the string the the window motor causes to rise and lower the window as that would cause many hours for novice mechanic to fix.

Hi..! my mazda cx7 '07 run out of battery, after I give a booster it works, but the fron passenger side window don't work any more, can you help me on this , is there any way to do a reset?


This happened to me after I came back from the dealership and they failed to inform me...SHOCKER. Here's the solution:
- turn the key to 'ON'
- open the window all the way
- close the window and hold the switch up for another 2 seconds
- do the same for the passenger side

That should fix the problem. It's in the manual on page 3-36.

How do I change the bulb in the low beam headlight in my 2007 Mazda CX7?


Removing the bulb in a CX7 is a real PITA. If replacing the right bulb, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right, or do the opposite for the left side. (or you can opt to remove the entire wheel on the corresponding side) You'll need to remove 3-4 of the fender well clips with a phillips screwdriver being careful not to break them. Once the screws are removed, pry back the wheel well cover to access the back of the headlamp to change the bulb.

I am trying to replace the low beam bulb on the passenger side of a 2007 Mazda CX7 . Can't seem to figure out how to get to it. Any help?


Open the 2007 CX-7 Owners Manual (here is you don't have one http://www.mazdausa.com/MusaWeb/pdf/manuals/2007CX7OM.pdf)
Go to page 8-35 (P. 331 in the pdf). Close the hood, you're in the wrong place. Remove the cover in the front of the wheel arch to expose the headlight assembly.

I need to replace the passenger sid mirror on a 98


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
