How to remove the front door panels on a 2004 3/4 ton Silverado with electric windows and door locks.

The sliding door lock lever needs to come out. Use a small flat bladed screw driver, and it pops out from the hinge-end of the door. A steel bar/tab pokes into the back of it. Make sure to re-align it when you reinstall. There is a screw back here. Remove it. There is a screw behind the arm rest. Remove the trim panel that is triangular in shape and covers the mount bolts for the mirror. It just pops off. I Remove the trim ring around the interior pull lever- you have to remove it and a screw behind it. There is a screw behind the "button" to the left of the arm rest. pop it off and remove the screw. There is a plactic punch pin on the far right side of the paunal, remove it. There is a screw from the bottom of the door that holds the junk holder in the door. Remove it. You have a light in the lower part of the door, you need to remove it. Be careful, though, because I have popped the cover to the light off when you need to pop the entire light and housing out. It slides forward toward the hinges. Once you have removed these screws, the panel will lift straight up about 2". You will then need to angle the panel to get the pull handle through it. If you have electric everything you will have to unplug them from the switches. Don't worry about marking them because the bottom of the switch block is marked . Black, orange, blue. to match the plug ends. I don't know about the manual window, but in most cases there is a C- clip of some sort between the handle and the panel, so you may need one from Advance/Orielly etc. Chevy has a stud and clip design that the panel just locks right into- very few screws are required. Best of luck...

If it is anything like a 2003, there are several places to remove- the sliding door lock lever needs to come out. Use a small flat bladed screw driver, and I believe that it pops out from the hinge-end of the door. A steel bar/tab pokes into the back of it. Make sure to re-align it when you reinstall. There is a screw under the grab handle right in the open part of the handle. Remove the trim panel that is triangular in shape and next to the mirror. It just pops off. I don't remember exactly about the trim ring around the interior pull lever- you may have to remove it and a screw behind it. Once you have removed these screws, the panel will lift straight up about 2". I don't remember exactly, but If you have a light in the lower part of the door, you may need to remove it and the screw behind it. Be careful, though, because I have popped the cover to the light off when you need to pop the entire light and housing out. I believe it again slides forward toward the hinges. I don't remember if the light has a screw behind it or not. You will then need to angle the panel to get the pull handle through it. I don't know about the manual window, but in most cases there is a C- clip of some sort between the handle and the panel, so you may need one from Advance/Orielly etc. Don't forget to remove the plug from that light- It hooks me every time! Chevy has a stud and clip design that the panel just locks right into- very few screws are required, and the old plastic punch nuts are a thing of the past. Best of luck... I am trying to find out about a 2005, and things are a bit different on the 3/4 ton model.

There is a clip on the back side of the window crank that you have to take off, then take the door panel off.

Just fine thanks to solar panels, windmills, and electric vehicles.

The cost of electric panels would be dependent on the type of panels used. Some of the costs can be reimbursed in the form of an energy rebate or as a refund on taxes.

It is not easy to repair an electric window on a 2003 KIA Spectra. If a person wants to repair the windows, the door panels will have to be removed. It may be best to take the vehicle to a repair center.

I think so, I believe there is an option in one of the control panels if I'm not mistaken.
