    And for those with the power locks and windows, you have to pull up the window and door lock control panel from the door panel. There is another 7mm screw under that, then you will be able to pull the door panel up and then off.

    I'll be starting this one tonight, only I didn't see any examples of the rear doors, I'm sure I'll figure it out. If I can gitterdunn well enough I'll be sure to take some pics of the rear door for the CC people...

    Well it went off without a hitch, and the back doors just had two of those 7mm screws. One was at the door handle same as the front and another below the rear door speaker grill along the edge. Thanks for the great write ups guys, made this job real easy.

    I can get the escalade handles and the solid painted ones already color matched to your trucks. Some colors come with tailgate handle and bucket too. PM if interested and or price

    they will fit but you have to remove a rod in the door, which isnt that hard.

    99-03 handles have two key holes, but 04-07 door handles only have one key hole on the drivers side.
    that rod is used to unlock/lock the door using the key. your power locks are not affected at all.:shake:

    Was a great write up when the pics worked. Get those back up again! It helped me a lot. Hopefully you can help some others with it too.
