Default Need directions for '97-'01 Camry driver door disassembly

Hi guys,

Does anyone have a link to the factory service manual directions for
disassembling the front driver side door to access the window
regulator?

Something like this, but for the front driver's side.

Thanks,

Michael

Ordinarily I'd prefer something I could print out, but I guess this
will have to do in the meantime...

I could use a copy of those myself. I had the door panel about
half-way off last fall, but couldn't find the last things holding it
on. I need to make changes to the door handle on each side.

If anyone has this and is sending a copy to Michael, I'd very much
appreciate a copy for myself. Just take out NONONO from my from-
address. Thanks.

Ah well, between the video and my experience disassembling our rear
door three times, I got it. =)

Generally, you have to remove a screw from behind the door handle, likely
under a trim cover, if you have manual windows you have to remove the
crank by pulling a large circlip out. If you have power windows, then the
controls should snap out and unplug the connector, but look for screws.
Remove the arm rest by pulling two or three large plugs and then the large
screws behind them. Look for any other screw covers over screw heads and
remove as required. Then, using the clip removal tool you bought at
AutoZone before you started doing this, pry the clips out starting at the
bottm and work around the door. You may also have to remove the trim cover
where the sideview mirror is.

Clip removal tool! Hahaha. I just covered my screwdrivers with
masking tape. Had to replace the masking tape pretty often, but
yeah. =)

Here's another video, only about removing the door panel.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZwimvl3SZs I have to go check my
door but I counted 12 places that had to be disonnected.

On a video for a Tacome, she said that the front of the window control
should be first, because it only had to bend a little there, but in
the back was a big square hook. However for the Camry, I think the
video above shows the guy lifting up the back first. Have to watch
that again too.

The pdf file you or someone posted said to use a shoprag! Never
thought of that. I have power windows now, so it doesnt' come up
anymore, buty I also have a GM-style tool that removes clips. A very
cheap one that bends easily, but it worked when I needed it. I don't
know if it would work with Toyota clips.

And note that he uses a tool at the top and the bottom to pry off the
rectangular ring around the door handle. Watch the video.

Oh, nice! I still would have covered that weird tool with some
masking tape tho.

Oh, and removing that little cover covering the screw for the door
lock (about 1:05 into the video)... I ruined that cover by prying the
wrong corner. I should have watched this first. D:

That guy is *fast*!
