You need help with removal of the metal door carrier?

ok you will see a bolts that run the whole perimeter of the metal carrier.

there is one nut that is just below the speaker.

The next step is to remove the wiring harness from the panel this will be a little tough as there is 2 ears that must be push in to get then to release. those are on the other side of the panel.

there is 2 big round black plugs. you need to remove these to get to the 2 bolts that hold the window regulator tabs. the window may need to be moved up or down to get them in the right place. To do this you will need to remove the window lift motor from the carrier. once you have the motor off. you should be able to move the window to get the tabs un hooked from the window.

because as the window will fall and could shatter. If it falls down inside the door. use tape or a wood wedge to hold widow up in the door.

Now you can remove all the mounting bolts and then reach through and unhook each one of the wiring holders. As you will need the room to get the connector for the door lock module.

The cable that runs through the carrier will stay try not to remove from door latch. the same for the door lock rod.

once you have the door lock module unhooked you can now remove the carrier. use reverse order to replace carrier.

There are kits available for you to replace the cables that are more than likely damaged. But you may need to replace the whole thing.

If you need further help just ask.
