Door Panel Removal
The door panels are not that hard to get off.
First you take the screw out of the arm rest and pull the arm rest off.
Then there are 3 more mounting screws (underneath where the armrest was) to be removed that secure the panel to the door.
After these screws are removed, the only thing holding the panel to the door are plastic pegs all around the circumference if the door that are molded into the cardboard paneling that "snap" into the frame of the door. Carefully remove these one by one and then snap off the trim for the door handle and lift off.
Do not pull too hard when pulling the panel off because the moldings in the cardboard for the snaps rip easily.
