Do it yourself, remove and replace the front door panel on the driver’s side of your Chevy S10 Blazer, produced between the years 1995 and 2005. To make this repair you will need a flat blade screwdriver, a Phillips screwdriver, a 7 mm socket wrench with an extension and a putty knife. Removing and replacing the door panel might take you more than half an hour.
You can start the repair by opening the front door of your car, on the driver’s side. You have to pry out the switch panel using a flat blade screwdriver wrapped in a rag, inserted as shown in the picture below. Pop up the switch and then unplug the four connectors that power it up.
After that you should remove the Phillips screw behind the small door handle and the two 7 mm bolts underneath the armrest and door pull. We marked their position in the image below. After you get rid of the retainers, you can also pull out and remove the bezel of the small door handle.
At this point, you can use a putty knife with a rag and insert it between the door panel and the door frame. Pry the door panel out little by little and in the end, detach it completely. This is the moment when you can make the desired repairs and replacements. Then finish the repair by reinstalling the door panel and its accessories and securing it with the retainers. This is all you need to do, if you remove and replace the front door panel on your Chevy S10 Blazer, manufactured between the years 1995 and 2005.
