Piece of cake there are torx screws all the way around the inner door shell,remove them all,then get a putty knife and put it below the black molding that is touching the glass ,then tap it gently.then to take the outside handle off you need to pull the handle up ,like when you are opening the door,and if you look closely at the inside of the handle you will see a small plastic pin that you will need to pull out.and then you just pull on the panel and it should come right off.hope this info will help.

Remove the OUTER door skin to get to the window hardware. Lift the outer handle, press out the two retaining pins then, with the door open, remove the screws that are around the edge. You will find some of them by examining the bottom inside of the door. After the screws and outer door handle are removed, the door skin just lifts off and you can get to all of the window hardware.

How do you remove the door panel 1994 Saturn SL1?

First, it's a little backward. The S-series Saturn's did not have inside door panels that could be removed. You need to remove the OUTSIDE door skin.First, remove the outside handle, there are two pins that you can press through the handle. Just lift up on the handle part way and the pins will be exposed. Press them through using something round with a flat end.After you've done that, open the door all the way and look around the perimeter. There are several screws that hold the outside door skin in place. Remove the screws and the door skin should lift right off.

I just hit my door a few times and that uaually works.Another PerspectiveRemove the OUTER door skin. You can't get to the door mechanism from the inside. To remove the outer door skin, FIRST remove the exterior door handle. Lift on the handle to expose the pins that hold the handle in place. Press the pins out, then slide the door handle off. Once the door handles are off, open the door and remove the screws that hold the outer door skin to the door. Look at the bottom inside rim of the door skin to see what the screws look like, then remove them all.It's been a while, so I can't remember if there are any hidden screws, but you should be able to figure it out.Once you have the skin off, you should be able to see what's wrong with the crank mechanism or rails. You can purchase new mechanisms from GM dealerships or from many wrecking yards. If the rails are mis-aligned, check to see if the rail is damaged or if the screws are just loose.

If you mean that "bubbles" have developed and the "skin" is loose, the only real fix is to replace the panel. Attempts at glueing the skin back to the underlieing foam will be very difficult and temporary, as the foam will have dried and become "flakey" and will no longer hold the skin.
