The handle where the rods are attached could be broken or disconnected inside your door. You will need to remove the interior door panel to figure out what the problem is.

How do I remove the driver door panel on a 2002 Malibu?


The door panel is held on with small plastic fasteners. Go to your local auto parts store and look in the auto body section for a trim removal tool.

If you do not want to buy the tool, you can use a flat tool of some sort.
Without the tool, you will need to buy plastic fasteners to replace the ones you ruin. (you'll need a flat prying tool at least 8 inches long and 2 inches wide)

Insert your flat prying tool in between the door panel and the door frame. Carefully work your way around the door, slowly popping the panel loose. Once you have the biggest part loose, you will have to pull up on the top and remove the rubber stripping between the window and door frame. Avoid at all cost ripping the plastic fasteners out of the door panel. You want to pull them loose from the door frame. More than likely, you will ruin several of the plastic fasteners. As I mentioned before, you can buy these at the auto parts store. I suggest taking a few with you so you can match them up with the new ones.

Broken water dispensing tube


you h ave a project in front of you. you are going to have to remove the door entirely from the cabinet, including electrical and water line connections. you will then have to remove the inner door liner and gasket, to access behind the dispenser module. you will need to pull the line out from the bottom, carefully, and replace with new water line, then replace gasket and liner, and reattach door.

Good luck.

Door panel and bezel removal


There are two screws in the door pull (which face straight down) - remove those first.

Next remove bezel around inside door handle. Carefully use screwdriver to push in on four tabs (at the four compass headings) and pull out on bezel. These are easy to break as they get brittle with age.

Start at bottom of door (using a trim removal tool) and pry out door fasteners (white posts which fit into friction fittings in door). You have to pry pretty hard. Use trim removal tool to apply force right at fastener. There are 3-4 on bottom of door and two on each side.

Once all the fasterners are loose. Carefully look behind door and remove the doors light and speaker connectors. The Speaker Connector can be hard to get to - you may need some help holding panel. Be careful because the wires to speakers are delicate and easy to break.

Once the panel is loose - roll down windows and pull up on door panel. It has a lip that fits over top of the door opening. You must pull straight up to disengage it.

That's it all done - not really hard but will seem a little strange at first. Take your time and be careful and the seconds one will take much less. I've had to remove all four of my door panels on my 1999 K1500 to replace window and lock motors. But, after 200,000 miles the 'burb is going strong.

Replacing the rear wiper motor on a 2002 olds silhouette


I have the same issue, and just did it yesterday.

1. remove the rear hatch door handle with a T35 star screwdriver bit
2. gently pry the panel up exposing the two bottom plastic push fasteners
3. I used a flat prybar with the notch on the fastener and pryed both off
(the push fastener has 2 washers on the top end so get the pry bar under the top one)
4. Now pull the panel off the side door latches and gently pull down again to expose the two back push fasteners and pry them off too.

You now should be able to remove the motor. The wiring harness comes off easily after you figured out that the only the small end closest to the wires comes off, not the whole "box". Insert the small blade of a jacknife crosswise in the space on top of the connector and pry up the tab letting the fasterner slip off.

I found a motor on the net for about $80 (part number1880686) but it currently is out of stock so I have to wait a couple of weeks to finish. I put the panel back on without the push fasteners and will wait the 2 weeks. Buick dealer wanted $320.

Good Luck

I need to remove the driver side rear door panel. How do I do it


There should be screws near the bottom of the door, and maybe the hand hold and or door release handle cavity. Look for removable caps and such as well. Also look in the bottom of the door pull.

Once all screws have been removed, see if lift and pull works. Depending on when GM changed over the holding method, this is the first to try.
If that doesn't work, then get a screw driver and wedge between the panel and the door at the bottom corner and pop the panel up.

You may need to replace the pegs before replacing the panel back onto the door.
