How-to?

I need to take my door panels off, i think they are stuffed with dirt from ranch work with windows down over the years. I messed around with them for a little last night but it got dark before i could really get into it. Any hidden screws or anything i need to know about?
Thanks

Freaking simple, i can have a door panel off in about 30 seconds. Pop the window/lock switch panel up, just lift up on the side closer to the rear of the truck. Take the screw out there, then pop the little light lens off near the bottom, and take the screw out that is in there, then lift up on the panel. Unscrew the lightbulb and set the panel to the side.

Any body have any other ideas as to why my windows are super slow and door lokcs not working? I really dont think its the window motor. The two back ones are super fast, the two front ones are slower than molases...front 2 are always the ones down...

Don't know about window speed, but there is a fix for the door locks floating around. Very easy, for the most part. Just do a search for door actuator fix.

Here is one

I am sure there are more, I did mine and love it
