You have to remove the panel around the door release which is a bit of a fiddle you also have to remove 2 screws which are under the black rubber in bottom of door pull then you pull off the panel carefully when i did it some of the clips broke (they are tight) then unplug the wiring from the window controls

Re: removal internal front door panel
Where the window controls are is where the screws are that hold the door pull,run fingers along under the bottom of door and look for any screws in the panel in this area,remove the window winder control panel by lifting it out,the door panel comes off by pulling it as its held on with plastic push on clips

remove the little screw cover on the interior door handle and screw next arm rest cover screw blanks and screws poss all torx screws you should next be able to remove panel using a clip remover or screwdriver to get panel off but more than likely the clips will break and you have to replace them
remove plastic plugs in armrest, screws behind to undo. remove plastic plug from interior handle eschutchion and small screw.the panel is held on by plastic clips which usually break when you remove panel .to remove panel prize away from door using a trim remover or a screwdriver with care! the clips are a very tight fit.the panel hooks over the window seal at the top. hope this helps.
Remove two screws in the bottom of the door handle and then pop out the studs around the edge of the door. be careful at this point as you will to disconnect the plugs to door controls and speaker. remove the door panel - this is awkward around the door release lever - take care. The window works will then be visible behind the plastic sealing sheet - remove this carefully as you need to refit it. The window mechanism. is plastic - check where it connects to the glass as this is often subject to damage, it is connected by a tapered pin. If you need a new lifter - keep your old motor as this is not included in the repair kit. Check the condition of the window slides and their mountings as this also can cause problems.
Good luck - hope this has been some help.
We all have the same problem. I haven't got real far into fixing it, but I have removed the panel. I'm not sure if it is the proper way to remove it, and I have broken some screws that keep it attached to the door...oops. I seem to be removing some body parts by force. That's basically what I do. I actually went to a junk yard and took some of the screws from the broken down S-Type, put them in my pocket and left. Hope this helps you in some way.
You'll need to 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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal
(can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to
access everything inside the door
