Hi, my car is 02 Buick Regal. The automatic window on the passenger side does not work. I want to know how to disassemble the door and to fix the problem. Many thanks.


Hello: The auto down part of the system is in the switch if the window goes up and down when you hold the switch there is no need to remove the door panel. To replace the switch you just need to remove the switch plate, take a 6 in straight screw driver put something under it to protect the panel, push in and slightly down to release the clip and pry up.

Install motor/regulator to 2000 camry solara


It easy ! You need a philips2_bing.gif and flat screw driver,8" X 4" block of wood and a needle nose pliar.
Use flat screw driver and pry out the two or three dust covers for the arm rest screws then use philips and remove the screws. Next use the flat screw driver and pry out the black plastic mirror cover from the inside of the door. Pry out the switch panel ( aka master switch panel) with the flat screw driver and disconnect it. On the side of the door panel just above the striker is this plastic push pull typeof a hold in screw. Use flat screw driver to get it to move a little then pull it out with the needle nose. Depending on which door your doing if you have a map folder ( driver or front passenger door) in the door there are two more screw to remove on the bottom of the door.
Now the inside door handle is tricky it comes out in two pieces. Use philips and get the only hold down screw you see out.( you may have to pry out al ittle screw cover first) Now the handle cover is removed by placeing the flat screw driver on the rear of the outside of the cover top and on the outside rear bottom to release the tangs that are holding it onto the panel.Pry it out lightly you may have to place the screw driver over the top of the door release button and pry that way. Don't loose your cool its a pain but it will fall out. Once its removed unhook the panel.

Next lift the plastic cover and remove the six gold2_bing.gif bolts first(For motor and regulator) Then push the window down till you see the two bolts holding the window to the regulator .Remove them, BEFORE YOU PULL OUT THE MOTOR AND REGULATOR YOU WILL SEE TWO TANGS THAT HELP HOLD THE REGULATOR AND MOTOR TO THE DOOR MARK THE RELOCATION , NOW pull out the motor and regulator have an assistant hold up the glass while you place the two blocks of wood to hold up the window. Now order your regulator and installation is in reverse. Good luck kate. Keep me posted.

The drivers side, rear door window will not raise. Also the passenger side front door will not operate. I am needing some kind of directions as to how to go about changing out the 'motor and the...


The motor is the regulator its one part.
You'll need a block of wood ( to hold up window if you don't have an assistant).
Remove screws from door panel pry out switch and discon it from connector.
The inside door handle is a little tricky use a flat screw driver and insert it on top of door handle trim where thesilver release handle rests and pry out the trim. Do it on top of the trim and on the bottom where the silver release handle sits. There are two parts to this door handle,Its trim and the handle itself.
Once you got the trim off the panel is easy as pie. just don't forget to pull electrical connector threw panel.
Next two screws to remove handle.
Pull up plastic cover and you'll see the three copper bolts to release the regulator. Then two bolts to release the window from regulator. Use a marker to mark position of bolts for regulator and window.
Installiation is reverse.
Remember install regulator first then put window on regulator. And don't forget to pull electrical connector threw panel to re connect switch.

Driver side window motor is out how do i remove motor and install new one


Remove the door panel: 1 Unscrew the lock knob. 2. Remove the door release escutcheon (cup inside of the door handle). 3. You may nee to remove the A pillar interior trim ( the plastic running from the dash to the roof ). 4. Remove the door pull handle to unscrew the screws underneath it. Look for little round plastic covers to remove with an awl or ice pick to gain access to screws. 5 Get a long flat head screw driver or a wonder bar and work your way in under the panel and interior door skin starting with the bottom rear portion of the panel. You will feel the tension of the door panel clips. Pop them loose one at a time. It is best to use the tool to get two or three fingers from each hand in there and firmly lift the panel in a quick pulling motion. When I say firmly, I mean don't pull so hard as to break the panel once the clip releases. Once you have the panel off there usually three screws holding the window regulator on the door. Unplug the wire connector to the motor.
There is a screw or clip holding the portion of the regulator that slides along the bottom of the window. Take that off and save the plastic and rubber bushings for install. Installation is the reverse of this procedure.
Test the window before reassembly. Tie up long hair and don't wear jewelry when working on electronics. Good luck. You can find these procedures specific for your car at the library in a Haynes or Chilton's manual. Sometimes they have factory service manuals too. You can also buy the after market books at Pep Boys or Autozone, ect. They are good to have for reference if you work on your car and they have electrical schematics too.

Need to pull door panel off to replace power window motor can not get door panel off


There are 2 screws holding the window switches to the door and 2 screws for the door panel, one is in the pull handle, the other behind the window switches. Remove these screws and using a trim remover(hopefully) work around the sides and bottom of the door to pop the plastic retainers out of the door, push in at the top of the door panel and push up from the bottom to release the top retainer.
There is more to changing the motor than you may think. Steel cover has to be popped off and reused, so be careful.

How do you remove the side mirrors on a 1995 Dodge Stratus


Start by taking off the inside door panel. Screws are located:
Inside the door release handle under the small plastic panel
Inside the door recessed handle under the small plastic panel
Under the speaker grill you will find three screws
On the inside rim closest to the hinge.
I believe that is all the screws, but check again.
Then there is the plastic retainers. They go around the lower perimeter of the door panel. Use a flat head screw driver or panel removal tool. The panel will be held on by the window wipe, push up on the panel. The door release bar is removed by pushing the retainer to the side and pushing the bar out. Remove all the wire connectors from the panel (mirror, lock, speaker, window.) Panel is now off.

There is a wing panel held on by two screws. underneath there may or may not be body plugs. Remove Them. There are three nuts that hold on the mirror. I believe they are 8mm deep well. Push the wire through the membrane.

Reverse to replace.

How do i replace a 1992 honda accord drivers front window


IF you scroll over the title, you can see the word "window". Raise the window about two inches. Remove the interior door panel: Remove the inner door handle screw, push the handle forward, pull it out some, unclip the actuating rod, you may also have to unplug the power lock switch. Remove the screw in the arm rest. Remove the plastic plug at the forward upper corner of the panel. Remove the black plastic triangle at the insdie of the side view mirror (it just snaps in place). Pull the bottom of the panel away from the door to disengage plastic clips, then lift the panel off the door and disconnect the electrical connectors. Pull the plastic away from the bottom part of the door (you'll probably end up tearing it). There are two bolts that hold the window glass to the regulator mechanism, remove those and the glass can be pulled up through the window opening. If necessary, the bottom of the window tracks (a screw at the bottom of botjh) can be loosened to loosen up the window.
