Looks like a different year. I got the door panel off before the answer was posted. I tried to take off the steel cover to get to the window. I took out all the screws and it still wouldn't come off. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

If you are having a problem with the window having fallen into the door because the window clips broke, it is likely covered by the warranty extension on this. (7 years, unlimited miles) There is a kit that will replace the window clips on both doors, plus replace the cable on the affected door if that has been torn up by the regulator motor.

If you have another issue we can help you get the carrier panel off.
