Hi. I'm trying to take my door panel off to look at the mechanism that opens the door. I cant open it from the inside or outside.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Buick?

2007 Lacrosse

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Lacrosse yourself? What have you tried so far?

I got as far as taking the trim piece that covers the bolt in the door handle

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's all. Thank you so much.

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your Lacrosse. Which door is giving you trouble?

The passenger side front door.
Buick Mechanic: relicdigger3, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Ok, when you press the door lock switch does the door lock unlock and lock the door? Can you manually press the door lock lever to unlock and lock the door?

Buick Mechanic: relicdigger3, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
That's great! Maybe the door lock actuator was binding.

Well. I don't want to waste your expertise while i have you. For future reference, are there any tricks or a certain place to start prying the panel off should i have to one day?
Buick Mechanic: relicdigger3, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Well, first you have to remove the screws which are usually covered by trim pieces. The door panel then comes off with some gentle prying since it is mostly clipped on. Although this can be difficult to do when the door doesn't open from either side.

Thank you for your help. I've been struggling for 2 weeks forgetting that the door doesn't open. Brought a trim removal kit and everything. You saved the day. I needed this win.
