How to remove door panel 2003 Deville?


Recommended Posts

Under the chrome door handle there is a plastic cover. Pry it off with a small screwdriver and it will reveal a phillips head screw. Remove it.

If you look close at the door lock knob you will see a square cover - pry it open with a small screwdriver. Remove the knob.

The edges of the door panel are secured with push-in retainers. You need to pry them out. Some may break but they're tough to remove without damage. The toughest retainers to remove are those directly behind the armrest. If you lift up on the panel and pull out it should come off.

If you need to get at the door lock assembly or the window motor you will also need to remove the water shield. To do that use a phillips-head screwdriver to punch in the centers of the retainers - this will release them and they are re-usable.

When re-assembling make sure you have the wiring harness plugged in, the door control module installed and plugged in and the door lock stem poking up through the door panel.

Good luck!
