How to remove driverside window

first remove the drivers door internal panel 2 screws at bottom of panel with torx screws, and one indie door handle inside little pop out plastick piece also a torx screw. when screws removed from bottom gently pull the panel away from the door towards yourself and work around the door til you reach the top, then push upwards slightly and panel will become free.

then unplug the cutesy bulb by turning a quarter to half turn and pulling out. , unplug the plugs from the window switches and mirror switch and push wires out of the way, they only fit in one way so cant get them wrong way round when re assembling.
unclip the door pull wire asembly from the handle and door internal card can be discarded

reach into the cavity of the door and feel along the bottom of the window you will find 2 holes in the window with pegs going through them from the window runner assembly. these pegs each have a locking pin which slides into a groove in the peg. pull the clips away from the peg and you should be able to wiggle the window off the pegs and then remove at an angle from the window cavity.

to reassemble perform the reverse. it can be fiddly but take your time and you will do it

How do you remove the front fender

Tool`s needed 3/8 drive socket set.
i`m assuming you want to remove the outer finder.
to remove fender locate the row of bolts along the inside after you open the hood under the splash Gard and the inner wheel well and a few in and around the grille maybe even in the door cavity .
Start at the bottom and work up saving the top row for last.
to install just reverse.
Good Luck and take your time

How do I remove the handle in door panel? I'm trying to remove the door because my window fell off the track, it doesn't have power windows so I have to manually roll them up and down.

1- remove the window crank
2- remove any screws from the door panel; sometimes they are hidden by a plastic cap. look inside the elbow rest cavity; remove any screws you see.
3- insert a flat plastic or wooden tool in the shape of (roughly) a scraper, between the door panel and door and start prying the clips which hold the panel to the sheet metal. get as close to the clips as possible with the tool, as that will be the easiest way. there are about 8 of these clips on an average door. when all the clips have come loose of the sheet metal, lift the panel straight up to remove it. you will find a metal rod attached to the inside of your handle; unfasten it and remove the panel completely. that handle looks like it is part of the panel and cannot be removed separately.

How do i reinstall the stereo

The instrument panel cover (and therefore the radio bezel) is fastened to the dash frame with snap-clips which cannot be seen with the instrument panel cover installed. To remove the instrument panel cover and gain access to the radio cavity, remove the radio fuse from fuse panel located on the driver's side of truck (the one that has a thumbnail opening and is triangular shaped), visible when you open the driver's door. Then set parking brake all the way down, put key in ignition and turn to "on" but not "start" and put gearshift into "L" position.
The snap-clips are located at the upper right corner, lower right corner, upper left corner, lower left corner and a few places in between, behind the dash cover over the instrument panel. You don't need any tools, just put your fingers on the seam of the dash cover and the the dash body, and pull firmly toward you until the instrument panel cover pops out and GENTLY so as not to break the instrument panel cover, continue until the instrument panel cover is loose from the dash and resting on the steering column. The headlight switch, and 4X4 switch (if equipped) remain in the instrument panel cover and will have to be unplugged to remove the instrument panel cover from the dash completely. This is a snug fit, even with the gearshift in "L".
The aftermarket radio bezel will have two screws at the bottom under the radio on the dash frame. Remove these screws, and remove the aftermarket radio from the radio cavity in the dash. The factory radio has two guide pins on the back, and the electrical connector is made into the radio and again in the back of the radio cavity. Simply slide the factory unit into the radio cavity, firmly seat it into the connector and guide pin sockets, and re-install the two screws you took out earlier.
The instrument panel cover re-installs the reverse of removal, and to seat the snap-clips, simply strike the cover sharply with the heel of your hand over each clip location. The dash will pop right back into place, and you will never know that an aftermarket head unit had ever been in there.

Same problem on the passenger side rear door due to a lot of use

If you are speaking of the window motor, it is inside the door cavity. The interior panel must be removed by prying with a double pronged tool (from an auto parts store) around the edges. There are a number of plastic posts that hold the panel and routinely break off, so be prepared to fork out some cash for these parts. Also remove any screwed down components like the arm rest and door lock buttons including the manual one above the door latch. There are plastic dust sheets that need to be carefully removed when the panel is removed. Make sure that there are no fuses blown for this motor before undertaking this process.

Removing inside door panel to change the speakers

Door panels are easy, first remove all of the screws, some will be hidden under plugs on the door handle. Using a door panel tool (about $5.00 at a parts store) work it around the panel and pop the plastic keepers out. Done.

Change a turn signal bulb on a 2008 Camry

you can see two screws holding this lens assembly, remove them and you can slide the lens off the cavity.

the wires and socket would be exposed, twist the socket counter clock wise and the bulb would be exposed.

replace the bulb and do the reverse in installing the signal light assembly back to the cavity.

tnx 4 using fixya,
