There are 2 bolts under the door pull on the inside of the door. U wil notice 2 little push in things. U need to also remove the trim around the door hendle on the inside. The rest of the panel clips on to the metal. Be careful at the top of the panel as it is easy to break the pressboard that the panel is made from. Hope u can make sense of this.

Ok it looks like there is two parts to the door panel. The one piece of plastic where the door handle is on and the other piece of plastic where you can store things on the lower half of the door. Now this part encircles the part where the door handle is. Actually there are two door handles, one to open the door and the other handle where you hold on to when someone is driving fast in the car. Underneath the second handle (that you hold on to) there are two little screws, do I remove these? I cant find any screws or anything else on the bottom of the door or anything else.

Yes, those are the 2 to remove. thee are no oter screws holding the door on as far as i am aware. The rest are just push in clips.

U need to remove the little piece of plastic trim that surrounds the door handle used to opent the door. U need to slide it forward half an inch to make it let go.

Ok, thank you, but then only that center piece comes off right? not the outer panel that encircles the center piece correct?

its the cir;lce part that sits on the leather that comes off. the part with the door release dosent come off. When the panel is removed, the release is still attached to the metal skin of the door.
