Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

First off we need to get the door trim panel off.

Can you do that?

I don't think so because I can not get the door open at all...
Chevy Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 2 months ago

It may be best to take the car to a shop for repair. Access to the internal parts inside the door is a must. There is no other way to get the door open.
