I've asked on three forums how to take a door panel off of these newer DTS. Maybe I just need to take it into the dealer being as new as it is.

It is not terribly hard; you remove all the screws, then pull up on the bottom of the door panel, which allows small L-shaped plastic clips to clear the inner shell. Then you can pull the panel off. Some danger of breaking the clips.

Thank you Bruce. I will take another stab at this today or tomorrow. While I don't want to break any clips, I assume that they are replaceable?.

Also, I assume that there was a special tool required to tab the wiring boot off of the car side as it broke while I was trying to pull it off. Any idea as to that driver's soor wiring harness part number?

Jeff, if you go to compnine.com then click on Cadillac or my other favorite Nalley GMC you can drill down to the diagrams and then to part numbers. I love these online diagrams for insight.

I don't know if the '08 is like the '00 - '05, but if it is, once you get everything loose, the panel lifts off vs pulling it off. If you pull it you'll break it.
