My drivers door window motor is giving me problems how do I remove door panel
Remove the triangle Piece at top by Mirror, it just snapps off, usually have to dig retainers out and slide back on for installation. then pull your window switch assembly out (snapps out also) watch for retainers falling off. next pull the Bezel off around the inner door handle snaps off, then there is a screw than holds it on and another screw in arm rest if I remember right then after screws are out grab by arm rest and slide the whole panel upwards and then pull off, there are pins that fit in a hole and then they slide or hook over inner door and screws hold in place. I would advise replacing the whole unit or you will be back in there again soon.Dorman company makes a lifetime window regulator assembly/with motor for around $100.00 and there are 4-5 10mm bolts that hold it in place, you can plug the switch to move window up or down to align with the 2 circle holes towards top of door frame, this is where you can acess the 2 10mm screws that you loosen to remove glass from regulator, once clamps are loose slide glass tight in to top of door and put big pieces of masking or duct tape over top of door to hold glass up out of the way while you are removing and reinstalling new assembly, then let the tape off after all the mounting screws are tight and slide glass down inside the clamps on reg. and run window up as tight to the top of door this aligns glass in the channel and then tighten the 2 clamps on the glass and try it couple times making sure it does'nt bind and rolls all the way up. don't forget to plug the motor in !
