GMC Sierra "01" driver door

How hard is it to remove the inside panel door? My window doesn't go up or down. I can hear the motor running but something snapped. Any help?

More than likely the regulator cable snapped or came undone due to the plastic retainers breaking.

The door panel is very easy to remove, and hte regulator is just as simple to replace. You need to pop out the little door lock lever, it just snaps in there. Then, I think there is a screw behind it, 7mm socket or phillips screw driver. Next, remove the piece that surrounds the inside door handle, also just snaps in place. Then, kinda under the pull handle that you grab to close the door, there is another screw or 2. Pop out the little light thingy on the bottom of the dor panel, there may be a screw in there too. You also need to pop off the switch assembly. Now, unsnap the door panel behind the door mirror and simply lift up on the door panel, it'll come right off.

this is a power window. I can hear the motor go up and down. Can't find a picture with the parts I need.

I know it is a power window. The motor drives a cable which lifts/lowers the window. You will need to replace the window regulator as an assembly, even if just the retainers are broken, but reuse the original motor. I know for a fact that NAPA and Carquest carry aftermarket window regulator for these trucks, at a fraction of the cost for an OEM one.

Though, you might have gotten lucky, but I doubt it. I have seen only 1 truck in the shop where the regulator to window clamps had came loose. I simply tightened them up and the guy was good to go.
