    For an 02 rt/10. I've been undoing screws left and right and the door panel still won't budge... Thanks!

    Screw inside handle area.

    2 screws behind door speaker.

    Screw near hinge.

    Screw near e-latch release.

    Screw on bottom near catch.

    One pop fastener near latch area mid door. Must pry loose last.

    Ok so I got the door panel off and now there's this big sealed plastic covering the entire door insides so I can't reach in. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    You must carefully remove that. And then carefully reinstall it.

    It has a gooey adhesive holding it. It will come off.

    so it's at the dealership and they say the window regulator is broken. I said bs because when I had the door panel off it was working entirely fine. I went in and they showed me that the little white plastic clip that holds the glass to the wire had broken off and that the entire window regulator needs to be replaced...

    I'm betting that with a little (okay, maybe a lot) of time searching on the internet, you'd be able to find a replacement clip for a whole lot less money than the entire window regulator.
