Default How do you remove the inner door panel on 91-95 S-Series?

I'm thinking about installing power door locks on my 95 SL2. How do you safely remove the inner door panels? Is there anything that you have to be especially careful about?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

the whole thing.
when i was removing the window from a junkyard car, i tried and failed to remove the interior panel. its in there tight. i don't remember finding out how it is.

if you're just doing the locks, though, you could probably do it from the outside panel, which is held in by 7 t-15 screws, then replacing just the door handle assembly, which is one screw and clips.

that's what i would do, at least.

There is a richpin video on door panel removal. The hardest part is getting the window crank off. You either make or buy the tool. The tool is less than $5.00 at most places. You will not get it off without it. The panel lifts Up don't pull as you will break the clips.

i don't know if it'll be different for the sl v sl2, but mine is also a 1995, and the door panel is very different from mine, i do know that it ended up being a verry different process from his video on a removing the driver side window.
looking at saturnseries.net, they separate the removal between 91-95 and 96-02.

it may be the same, but i don't think so.

this is such a difficult and important task, that more than one thread in multiple sections is needed...wow.

oh and if your this worried about trying to get off a door panel and are asking so many times how to do it, installing power locks is beyond your level of skill. just go out there and learn, its not that hard and its half the fun

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
