Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado

2000 drivers side interior door panel

My power window has stop functioning, stuck halfway. I need to remove the panel to gain access to the power window mechanism. The idiot designers made the panel impossible to remove (without breaking it) without the info and/or special tools. What happened to the good old days, when you just removed a few screws and pulled the panel off? Where can I find a COMPREHENSIVE guide to removing the panel? This will have to include pictures or schematics to show where the clips are located and in which order to pop them loose. I tried pulling the edges up enough to see inside, but I would have to break the damn cheap plastic to raise the edges up enough. If they deliberately designed the thing to frustrate the owner, they couldn't have done a better job of it. I am an aircraft design engineer, and if I created such a stupid design I would be fired. Regards, Duane Ronan

Change Power Windows motor 2000 Dodge Neon


you will have to remove the interior door trim to gain access to the inside of the door.
i am not sure of the setup in your door but if it is cable driven you may have to replace the whole winder mechanism as I think they come as a unit.
If it is pop riveted to the door panel you will have to drill the rivets out and replace with new ones
Have a good look or take a pic at how it is mounted b4 you start pulling it down

Power window motor replacement. window in down position


Normal 0 Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locateand remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they maybe hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, thendisconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snapin clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as closeto, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the doorpanel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from thedoor. Once you gain access to the interior of the door, you can remove your window regulator and re-position it, or replace it so it works.
Install in reverse.

How to remove REAR interior door panel? Problem


You'll need to 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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

I need to replace passenger side mirror on 97 ford expedition


Both above answers are not right... I just replaced the Pass side power mirror assembly on my 97 Expedition. No heat, no directional.
The inside door panel must come off.
1. pry off interior triangular plastic trim piece inside of door at mirror area. Remove door panel screw at this area.
2. Pry off power window switch panel and remove door panel screw at this area.
3.Remove interior door light cover and remove screw at this area.
4. Remove plastic cover at door handle.
5. The interior door panel can now be lifted up to release it from it's fasteners.
6. Disconnect light and push power window switch assembly through the door panel and it can be set aside.
7. Disconnect mirror power at coupler.
8 Loosen three mirror mounting screws with 7/16 socket. DO NOT unscrew completely.. the will fall down the door cavity. Use a round magnet on holder to remove the screws completely.
9.Thread electrical connection into door panel and install mirror.
10. Smile when mirror works and drink a beer!
