    Hey there, I am trying to get the drivers side door panel off my wifes 90 Jimmy. The window is not working, I have removed all the screws and such, but it seems to be stuck on the top by the window. I can't see anything else that I need to remove, I was trying to remember years back when I had another vehicle that I removed the door panel on. I think the panel had a lip at the top that slid down, any help out there if this is the same? I just don't want to break anything as panel parts are not easily replaced. Anybody have a suggestion?

    if you can, put the window down.. makes the top clip easier..

    push the top of the door panel in towards the glass and lift up from the bottom...

    Never done a later model one, but there are generally clips near the bottom...gently pry those loose first. Then the upper sill area is usually resting on a lip so by lifting up on the entire panel you can lift up and off.

    Sometimes there are screws hiding in the door pulls or armrests....double check for those too.
