1. locate screw holes for door handle (and other areas maybe) and remove. the screws may be located behind plugs that you remove with small flat screw driver
2. disconnect and remove power lock/window unit, usually pries up from one end (rear of car) and slides out. be careful not to stracth leather or upholstry
3. using screwdriver, pry bar, nail bar or other flat piece of metal pry panel away from door one clip at a time. try to pry near the clip, otherwise you risk damaging the panel's interior
post another problem if you get further and still have trouble.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

My 96 Camry LE has 9 attachments that are visible. Some have plastic caps covering the screws; others do not. There are screws at the door handle, at the forward portion(with covers) when the door is open and the back edge (small covers). As I recall, there are several friction type fasteners around the perimiter of the panel that can be removed by prying carefully away from the metal portion of the door to free up the trim panel. Once these are loose, the trim around the inside door release handle (the one you pull to open the door) can be pryed in a backward motion. Then the entire panel can be removed by pulling upward and backward at the same time (it easier to do this with the window down). Then it is a matter of disconnecting the wires attached to the various controls for the electric windows and door locks to free up the panel itself. There is probably a plastic skin covering the metal portion of the door. Carefully pull that away to expose the inner workings of the door latch mechanisim. The rest of the procedure should become easy to figure out. I have not removed the exterior door handle itself; but it is a simple mechanism as I recall. Best of luck to you.

remove phillips scew and the door handle. remove padded arm rest on the door by lifting it up, and remove 2 screws. You can use a panel tool to remove the plastic toggle like pins holding the panel border in. Be as gentle as possible they may break due to becoming brittle.

Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws
that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by
snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then
disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place
by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try
to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from
tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the
panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.
