Your Honda CR-V came with power windows installed. These power windows are powered up and controlled by the power window motor. The motor generates power for your CR-V's window regulator, which in turn moves the glass window inside your door up and down. If the window motor fails, you will not be able to open or close your window. Even worse, your window could get stuck in the down position. You should replace your windshield motor immediately if it goes out.

    Remove your CR-V's door handle screws with your screwdriver. Also remove the arm rest bolts with your socket set.

    Work screwdriver along the edges of your door panel and pop loose the plastic rivets that hold it in place. Work around the perimeter of the entire door panel until the panel comes free.
