How do you remove the inside door panel from a 1993 Honda Accord SE when the window is dislodged?
This might help on a '93. I just had to change out the motor
assembly on my 91 Accord. There is a tab (square) in the door
handle. Pop that off, then take that screw out. Then there are
several fasteners around the outside of the door panel. You have to
get your fingers or a screw driver under the panel and feel for the
fasteners, then pull them out. Once you have them out, there is
another tab (round) in the door latch assembly. Pull that off with
a small screwdriver and take out that screw. Then you have to
disconnect the wire that connects the door latch to the latch.
There is a plastic coupler on there. YOu have to slide it off of
the wire and then the wire will come off. The door panel fits in a
groove along the top of the door just under the window. You have to
lift up. Careful, because you will have the wires for the door
light and the power window buttons. Then the panel should come off.
Hope this helps. Edit by Matt: I have the same vehicle as you do
(question) and just had to replace the window assembly. Anyway, do
as instructed above but you need to slide the door handle slot (the
one with the power locks in it) to the right to pop it off. Then
disconnect that wire and the door latch. Then lift up on the entire
thing and run your fingers or a screw driver a long the edges and
carefully pry off the door panel. After that, disconnect all the
wires. There's one for the door light, three for near the window
operations console. Next remove the door lock box, there's two
philip's screws holding it on, just diconnect it, this will give
you more room to work with. Do the same to your speaker. Next use a
little heat to soften the glue around the plastic cover that keeps
the air out and apply heat to the glue to remove it, just don't
melt anything. By then, you should have enough room to unbolt the
window mechanism, there are 4 bolts in a square by where all the
wires are and 2 or 3 more to the left of that. Have someone hold
the window while you take this off otherwise you'll probably end up
with a broken window. Next slide the glass up and out, then unbolt
it (2 bolts on each end). Your window will be free and your
mechanism will drop to the bottom of the door. Then disconnect the
wire from the window motor and remove the cable holders from the
door and slide the mechanism out. My problem was that the gear in
there was missing 3 and a half teeth therefore jamming the window.
Good luck doing this, it's a good learning experience (I'm 16).
