OK so today the front passenger door decides not to open from inside or out, can't feel and resistance on either handle when pulled. I am sure it will be fun pulling the door apart with it closed. Add to that my dog pulled the rear pass window off the guide. Its holding closed but wants to fall at an odd angle when lowwered. I need to replace my wiper arms, it was the ONLY way to get the right size tubing for the washerfluid. Need new rollers on drivers window, it goes down but sometimes need to be encouraged pushing down with 1 hand while holding the button, and oh yes change my oil.

If anyone has done these chores lately and can give me a heads up of any tricks or problem areas I would be eternally grateful.

A couple of us are familiar with the window roller replacement.

I replaced a couple window rollers over the years

Right now I do not have the new window roller part number,
The replacement round rollers can be purchased at a GM Parts Department.

You have to open up the window track and knock out the broken window slider.
Install the new roller.
Squeeze the new roller with a channel lock or use a small C-clamp.

OK SO lets see.......
Front passenger door needs new lock actuator....will be in my local store Sat 12p door is ripped open and old one out just waiting
Rear passenger door needed window rollers.....what a huge PITA! With the help of a grinder wheel on a Dremel Tool to grind out most of the end of the blocked channel, a large screw driver to pry the ends out a bit, and a lot of luck and force with the same screwdriver I got the new roller in. I was then Just able to get a 4" C-clamp in there to pop the pin into the roller, after 3 or 4 trys.
Rear Drivers side had a rod pop loose so the outside handle didn't like to work..it now works.
Drivers Door needs rollers, but I just don't have the umph to do it today
I also replaced the wiper arms so I could get new tubing for the washers, (no one had the right size or close to it)
And changed the oil

God I Love My Car!!!!
