I had to remove my drivers side door panel on a 1996 Olds 88 about 3 weeks ago. Remove the screws (2) from the inside center of the door. Slide out the plastic box that the screws were removed from. Lift the entire panel straght up from the bottom. If you have difficulty lifting the panel you can pull out on the lower back portion of the panel and expose the panel holder(s). These are two pieces of plastic. The piece that attaches to the door is a "press-in" that looks like a large screw with an exposed plastic disk. The piece on the door panel is a "receiver" that has an opening that the disk of the "press-in" slides into from the bottom. Forcing the panel away from the door will probably not break these, but lifting the panel up off of these holders is the preferred method. The are about 6-8 of these panel holders at different locations along the edges of the door.

Good luck.

Using a screw driver, remove the screws and the clips from the door panel. Gently pull the panel away from the frame, and remove any wire connectors. Then pull the panel the rest of the way off.

Hi, The power control unit on the door panel have clips that will sinmply pop out with a screwdriver exposing a few door panel to body screws. Remove these and the rest of the panel has the same clips.Simply pop them out.Best bet is to replace them after you remove the panel to get a nice tight fit.You can get them from any local parts store.
