If your car you are working on is reflective of your nickname.. 68 Camaro..

First do yourself a favor and buy a cheap set of interior panel tools. cost you about five to ten dollars.. or you can use a thin stiff prying tool .. The interior panel is a cardboard/hardboard and due to age can crack or break. It has a series of spring clips that pop into corrosponding holes in the door. The obvious needs to be removed.. window crank, door release and arm rest before you begin prying around to locate these clips.

Make sure you are as close to the clips as possible before prying them out.. otherwise they will rupture out of the hardboard and you will need to patch that as best you can.. you may need to buy a few new clips at a local parts store as sometimes the old ones break. When you get the door panel free around the edges/both sides and the bottom.. if I remember right you may need to pop it upwards to free it from the top.

Best of luck to you

How to remove door inner panel?

•Open the car door and thoroughly look it for over for screws, handles and accessories that may keep it from being removed.

Remove all screws going into the door panel, keeping track of where the screws are removed from. There may be different types and sizes of screws holding the door panel in place. They may have plugs or buttons covering them.

Remove the power lock and power window controls. These units are usually screwed and/or snapped in place. After removing the control, allow it to hang there by the wires. If the auto is equipped with manual windows, remove the window crank with the door and window handle tool, since these are retained with a retaining clip. Looks like this.. You get replacements at auto parts stores if needed, often not.
narseman_1.jpg Remove the door handle. Door handles are installed with screws or bolts.

Pry the door panel away from the door gently with a flat screwdriver. While prying the panel, look in the opening to locate the door panel retainers. Insert the door and window tool around each of the door panels on the door and gently push the handle to disconnect the door panel retainers from the door. Repeat this procedure until all of the door panel retainers are unplugged. The door panel retainers are usually located up both sides of the door panel and along the bottom of the door panel.

The top of the panel usually hangs over the top of metal frame, next to the window, so you'll need to start by going up with it. Remove the door panel slowly, taking notice of anything that may bind it. If there is a door light, the wires will bind the panel, so remove the lamp from its opening and allow the light to hang there. If the door has power windows and locks, carefully slide the controls through their openings to completely remove the door panel.

Door latch switch

These switches fail sometimes, when this happens the control unit is not aware that you have opened the door

The switch is integral with the lock unit, and they are not easy things to replace either.
remove the internal door trim. unplugg the wiring inside. remove the outer key barrel and unhook the cable from the outer handle to the lock unit. unbolt the lock unit. the window regulator will have to be unbolted from the window (remove the 2 plastic circular access panels and wind the window down to a level at which the 2 bolts are visible), lift the window clear once unbolted (using your hands, slide it upwards in its guide rails, stick it in place with tape).
once this is done the window regualtor can be unbolted (10 or so bolts) and removed, complete with the door lock.

Back rear window replacement in 2002 Nissan Altima

First take the door panel off by unscrewing the door panel screws. Next undo the door handle screws followed by disconnecting the window power unit. After everything is removed, peal back the protective plastic if there is some to get access to the bolts for undoing the window and to losen the window tracking sides. After the old window is unmounted take the gasket casing for the window and only have the top part pushed in while the sides are lose and away so the window can be slide in and the bolts then reinserted to support the window. Last take the bottom parts of the gasket casing and feed each side down either side of the window until it is taught and secured in place. After that plug in the window power to make sure it works correctly and then reassemble the door handle casing and door panel. You now have a brand new back passenger window for a 2002 Nissan Altima.

Describe your 2001 Chrysler Town &

Shouldn't set off air bag if you are taking off door panel. You could always disconnect negative battery cable to be extra careful. I have replaced both passenger and drivers windows with battery connected. Take your time in removing door panel so avoid breaking plastic retaining clips.

One nasty part of this job is removing bolts that hold window motor to the door. They have a rubberized nut on the backside. Sometimes you can hold them with vise grips. I've found if I just pull the motor really hard the bolt and nut slides out of rubber guide.

It is also a little tricky to remove the unit and reinstall it in the door. Just be patient and take your time.

One tip is to leave the door panel off after you install the new door motor/regulator unit. Simply plug in the window switch and make sure all is functioning correctly and then install door panel.

I buy the replacement window units online and save big bucks over the dealer.

1990 buick centruty, driver door schematic (window regulator)

The first thing you need to do before buying any parts is to remove the door panel and find out exactly what is wrong, the motor is a gear reduction unit and even if the motor works it may still not drive the output gear. The door panel is held on by screws and hidden clips, pop off any panels or light fixtures on the door trim, under those you will find the hidden retainer screws, then gently pull door panel at edges to disengage feather style snaps.
