Well I rolled the passenger side window all the way down and the handle started going click-click-click-click. It does that in both directions and the window doesn't move. We're having freaking monsoon rains here now, so I cut out a piece of cardboard and jammed it into place to keep most of the water out. How do I get the door panel off and fix this (preferably without breaking a dozen little plastic tabs that must be ordered by the dealer)?

First: There's like 5 screws: three in the doorpull and two in the door handle (at least for the handle I have -- the base model).

Second: Remove the window crank, just pulls off snap-fit style. The way you made it sound, you don't have power windows.

Third: Work from the bottom of the panel. There's just a few "Christmas trees". These are those little plastic snap dealies I think you were referring to. They go back in without replacing them. You just have to keep tugging on them to pop.

Last for panel: disconnect the pin for the door pull. It's a PITA!

You'll have to gut the door, probably, unless you can find out where the cranking linkage has gone awry. Sometimes a little push with the screwdriver from the bottom of the glass will help to align it back into place. Otherwise, you may have to pull out the vertical metal stabilizer and reset the whole thing. Grr.. ..

Good luck.

....Or try to grasp the window and pull upward slightly....it sould start to roll up. If not loosen the bottom PITA plastic fastners on the inside trim panel, stick your hand thru the access hole and under the window cradle. Push up on the cradle while turning the crank. The window should roll up. This will keep the inside from geting soaked; you can do Chris' repair suggestion at your leisure. Good Luck!!/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif
