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

Exterior, rear, passenger door handle will not open door. Handle feels loose, as though it is detached from any linkage?

you will need to remove the panel, usually for screws located on arm rest,door handle and sometimes around the middle of the panel behind a round plastic cover. Once all the screws are out the panel pops off, you will need to disconnect the power switches from the inside. Then look at the inside of the door, there is a retaining clip that holds the lever inside the door handle it may have fallen off or the handle cracked. Hope this helped tim

How to remove right front panel on 2000 ford

This is for the front passenger side door panel from a 1999 Ford Expedition. The driver's side door should be the same, except for the mirror switch which needs to be unplugged. The 1998 *might* be the same, I don't know, but this should be helpful to someone.

Use a flat blade screwdriver or other suitable tool to pry out on the top of the triangular plastic panel on the top front of the door panel. The plastic holder should pull out of the door. Now pry up on both sides of the triangular panel and pull it loose. Remove the philips head screw you find under this panel. Pull the door latch handle, pry out the insert where the handle goes through, and remove the bolt that holds the door handle in place. Remove the door handle. Pry up on the ends of the door switch panel to remove it. Unplug the cables by pushing in on the lock tab on the side of the plug and pulling out. Remove the philips head screw accessible through the switch panel hole. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the slot at the bottom of the courtesy light lens and pry up and out to remove the lens. Remove the philips head screw behind this lens. Pull up on the door panel to remove it. Be careful of the courtesy light when removing the panel - give the light a quarter turn counter-clockwise from the rear to remove it from the door panel.

Its possible that this GUIDE can helpfull as reference.

Hope this help.

How do you remove left rear door panel? need to replace power window motor

Most GMs are pretty much the same. Remove the inset around the door handle - there may be one screw and then it should slide out.
The panel itself is held in with plastic retainers - probably 3-4 along the bottom edge and then 1-2 on the sides. These need to be pryed loose. If you can't get them with your fingers, use some other non-sharp object to help.
Once the panel is loose, keep it close to the door and slide it up - releasing the edge right next to the window glass. You may have to work it back and forth a bit.
When you put it back, getting the edge by the window on right is key to holding the panel on correctly. Many people don't get this seated right and the panels always are loose.

Outside door handle

I had this happen as well on the rear doors, and on both sides now. The door panel is easy to remove, the problem is accessing the bolt nearest the rear of the vehicle because the entire locking/door latch mechanism is in the way. At the factory the door handle was obviously installed through that hole first before the locking mechanism/latch went in.

To remove the door panel, pop out the two plugs pieces in the pull handle, then unscrew the screws there. There is another screw in the opener handle of the door and two more around the edge of the plastic frame (one on side, one on bottom). Once loose disconnect the handle by un-clipping the plastic pieces from the metal rods. Then pull the door loose my going around the edges and popping out the plastic retainers. The electrical connection is easily unplugged so you can remove the panel completely to get it out of the way.

The power window in the right rear backseat is broken

Door panels usually have a combination of screws and "pop/snap fasteners" holding them in place.

Screws are usually in places such as in the arm rest or under the door handle. The fasteners are spaced around the edge of the panel -- these can be popped loose with a very wide flat-tip screwdriver or the like.
