Fits years: 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000

All Dodge Caravan for sale Tools required:

  • Phillips screwdriver

  • Flathead screwdriver

  • Door Panel Clip Tool (or putty knife)

  • Window Crank Removal Tool


Step 1: Open the vehicle's door.

Step 2: Using the window crank removal tool, pry and remove the window crank.

Step 3: Pry and remove the screw cover (1) just above the interior door handle. Loosen and remove the Phillips screw (1).

Step 4: Loosen and remove the Phillips screw (1) located inside the interior door handle.

Step 5: Loosen and remove the Phillips screw (1) located inside the interior door pull.

Step 6: Using the door panel clip tool, pry and separate the interior door panel from the door frame.


A series of retaining clips secures the door panel to the frame. You will hear these clips "pop" as they disengage, releasing the door frame.

Step 7: You can now lift and remove the interior door panel. Disengage the retaining clip (1) that secures the locking rod to the back of the interior door handle.

NOTE: If any clips stayed with the door frame, which is quite common, be sure to pry them free and reattach them to the back of the door panel.

Step 8: To reattach the interior door panel, re-engage the retaining clip (1) that secures the locking rod to the back of the interior door handle. Lift the panel OVER the locking lever, and move it into position.

With a FIRM, but not too firm, strike near each retaining clip, you can "snap" them back into place.

Step 9: Tighten the Phillips screws (3). Reattach the screw cover (1).

Step 10: Snap the window crank handle back onto the stud.
