Re: [FWDLK] How do you remove a door panel?



I have found replacements on  Ebay.    If I run across the ebay person
who sold them to me, I will let you know.

On my Belvedere the tabs were broken so I had to use 2 small
screwdrivers, one on the top and one on the bottom (just one side
wasn't enough).  Not knowing how they worked in the first place, and
not knowing they were broken, made it a pain, but I finally got it.
Now I need replacements.

Bend 1/4" of the tip of an old butterknife up at a 90 degree angle -- that's pretty much all you'll need.

    The tab is like a square that fits in a groove on the shaft.  When
    you slide the tab in towards the shaft, it releases the other side
    of the tab from the groove in the shaft, and it will come off.
    After you do the first one, the rest are easy.  You just have to
    understand how it works first.  Find the springy side of the tab,
    and push it towards the shaft.  The clip won't come off, but it
    will move about 1/4" in. towards the shaft.

    The clip looks something like this picture (if it goes through the
    listserv)

        It there a way to remove door panels with a home tool?  I used
        a screw driver to slowly dislodge the clips holding panel to
        the door.  I did a good job not hurting the panel or the
        door.  The hard part I have right now is removing the interior
        handles.  I was following the instructions in the book I
        have.  I just can't see what on the handle has to get loose.



The instructions in the book are as follow:



INSIDE DOOR AND WINDOW REGULATOR HANDLES



        The door and window regulator handles are attached with a
        spring type clip.



        Turn window regulator handle down so that the retainer clip is
        to the left. Place tool between washer and handle. Push tool
        from left to right and at the same time pull outward on handle.





        When I look inside of the door panel I can clearly see the
        spring clip but the retainer.



Is there any home tool I can use to remove the handles?

And I don't want to use the Grinder..





Thanks,

Joey
