First, remove the door's interior trim panel. This is held on by some screws, some plastic push pins, and some clips that just need a firm pull. Just remove all the screws and pins you can find, then experiment with pulling it off. Be careful not to put too much muscle into it, as you want to avoid cracking the plastic.

Once you have it off, you will see two rods leading to the rear of the door. These control the lock and latch mechanisms, and are attached to the latch with plastic clips that can be disconnected with your fingers.

After the latch is disconnected, remove the 3 torx screws that hold the latch to the doorframe, and the latch mechanism will drop free. If you do not have a torx bit that matches the screws, go buy one. Trying to use something else will just mangle the screws and make them harder to remove.

Installation is simply the reverse of removal. If you have a helper hold the latch in place while installing the screws, it makes things a lot easier. Be sure to test all the door functions before reinstalling the interior panel.

1990 dodge caravan how do you remove and replace the driver side door?

You would need to remove the inside panel of the door first to unplug the electrical wiring to the door. Then there are bolts on the hinges you can remove to take the door off. When you install the new door you wil need to adjust it so the latch meets up with the door jam.

How do you troubleshoot intermittent power door controls on a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport?

My 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan had a problem. The driver side power sliding side door stopped opening on its own. It would make all the right sounds and then unlatch the door, but not far enough so the door would open up and move back on its own. I put together a web page with a video of my problem and my repair. I ended up putting a new latch motor assembly in the door. You can definitely do it yourself and save a bunch of money. Visit my website. I have a walkthrough of the procedure. I didn't have a problem with the controls, just the latch itself. Hope this is the right answer for you. -Mike

Hi. I've had this problem with our van. You will have to remove the inside door panel. The rod going from the handle to the door latch has come loose. There is a plastic lock that holds the rod to the door latch. Your auto bodyshop should have this plastic lock. Good Luck

If the sliding door will not close on the 2005 Saturn Relay, look for something that is stuck in the door latch area. Also check the latch to see if it has come out of adjustment. The pin or hook might need to be adjusted or tightened.
