Good Morning, I have been searching all over the net and trying to find a set of instructions on how to remove the door panel from a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Ext cab with power locks and windows. I am hung up trying to figure out how to get the control panel on the door with the locks and window controls on it off. I sprung loose the bottom side of the panel but the upper side towards the hinge of the door is very tight and I can't get it. Would you have any ideas how to get that off...and or do I need that off to get the door panel off? I would assume so being theres wires going into to door. A complete procedure would be great. Any help would be awsome! Getting frustrated! Thank you

You do not have to remove the window switches to remove the doo panel. You will need to pop out the manual door lock. You can pry it out gently with a small flat head screw driver. There is a screw behind there. Then you will need to pop out the plastic filler around the inside door handle. There is another screw behind there. Then tou will need to pop out the red reflector at the lower back endge of the door. There is another screw behind it. Then roll the window down and remove the plastic triangle shaped piece on the inside of the door behind the rearview mirror. Then you should beable to slide the door panel up the door and out from the door. The door will have a series of slots along the bottom and a corresponding tab on the back of the door panel. Then you can unplug the swithces from the backside of the panel.

Maybe this will help!!

Here is a site I found when I was searching for new power windows they have a pretty good installation page that shows the 2003 silverado door removal
it doesnt have power windows or locks but there is info on replacing factory locks/windows

Just installed a new power window regulator on drivers side of '01 Tahoe-piece of cake! However, the hidden screws were behind the window switch panel and behind the inside door handle filler panel.

Why that's impossible...and yet it happened!
