Open the door. At the top corners of the door panel, on the sides (the faces of the door panel that mate to the car's body when the door is shut), there is a screw on each end. Remove those. Next, in the door pull handle, there is a screw inside the pull with the head facing toward the front of the car. Take that out. You'll see that the inside area of the pull handle is a separate piece. Push hard to slide that downward and expose the final screw. Take out the last screw, hidden by the pull handle after you take it off, and then lift the door panel off the door. Be careful not to yank it too hard and damage the wiring.

How do I remove the door panel from the front passenger side of my dodge avenger 2010. I don't see any screws. Does it just pull off?

Try google images but you will likely need a special jemmy type tool from a parts house or accessory shop. There are probably pop studs located all around the edge of the door panel and will need care to release, thats what the tool is for. The window mechanism will have jumped its track or if cable operated come adrift. All will be revealed. try for help

Front passenger window has fallen down into door

The window either came unattached from the window regulator or your power window motor's gears inside are stripped, either way you need to take the door panel off to diagnose the problem.

Passenger window makes loud noise when rolled down

On the inside trim, you can 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. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you should be able to see what the window is catching on.
I've seen cases where the lock cylinder comes loose and hits the window

Window on passenger side will not come down need door panel instructions.

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. 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

A4 96' back window slipped down

Removal is actually very easy and only requires a philips screwdriver and about five minutes. Open the door and look at the top of the door panel at each end - there is a screw at each top corner - one that screws in at the front, pointing toward the rear of the car, one screws in at the back pointing toward the front. Remove those. Then, inside the handle that is used to pull the door shut, there's one screw there, at the back of the inside of the handle. Remove that. That frees up the trim piece that forms the inside of the pull handle. Slide it down and pull it out (it's kind of tough to do, so if it's not coming right off, don't worry, just pull down harder and it will). When you remove that, it exposes a fourth screw that anchors the door panel to the door frame. Take that out, and then the door panel lifts up and off the door. Be sure that you push the door lock down before lifting the door panel off, so that it's easier to remove the panel. When you start to reinstall it, pull the lock shaft up so that it's easier to align it with the hole in the top of the door panel, and reinstall the four screws you removed.
