how do i take off the rear passenger door pannel on my 1997 Buick Le Sabre??
Roll down the window. Remove the screws found under armrests and behind switches and reflectors. Starting at the bottom, pry the panel off. It's held on with plastic christmas tree shaped studs. Work up the sides of the panel. There might be more screw to locate if it's not coming free. When it is free, the bottom will swing out and you lift the top edge off the door. Remember how the trim at the top is step up so you can put it back. Disconnect any connectors. http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-c3906_ds36311
'bout four phillips head screws two in the armrest, grab a machete, or large knife ruler or yard stick, open up the space between the steel and hardboard, the plastic fasteners will "pop" free, you'll have to push up towards the seal, there will be a plastic liner to carefully remove to get to the mechanism~
