I am trouble-shooting the driver's power window, and I need to get to the motor. I need to find out how to remove the door trim. I have a Jayne's manual, but not all the diagrams agree with what I have. (All other power windows work, the switch is OK, but I do not have continuity through the motor)
Do you
have the same problem?

Look for any small screws along the bottom of the panel and on the grab handle, might be behind decorative pop in covers. If all good then the panel will pop off, start at the bottom and pull out, wil be alittle hard to get at first. Once one or two off you will be able to see behind panel to help pop th erest with a flat screwdriver or trim tool. Once at the motor, use a test light to see if there is power and ground at the motor when th eswitch is pushed. Teh power and ground will swap sides on the motor (reverse polarity) that is how it goes up and down

Thanks, Jack. My Jaynes manual shows the 2 screws at the bottom of the trim panel you mentioned, but mine does not have them. I will try to upload a picture. The Jaynes book also implies that I have HOOK fasteners, which require the trim panel to be lifted up, THEN out. My old (94) van had pressure fasteners, which just required pulling straight out. If I can get the picture uploaded (didn't work last time I tried), can you tell from the picture which kind of fateners I have?

Not really. If you have all the visible screws out, try lifting the panel up. If it wont go then you may have missed a screw. Look for any decorative plugs, they usually have screws under them
