  There is hidden screw under top of arm rest.  the mirror control comes out.  Be careful.  then there are 2 screws in bottom of arm rest.  Then the arm rest/handle needs to spin up towards sky and it will pull out.  the scushing (plastic around handle ) slides forward and this handle surround will come off.  Then there are clips that are behind panel.  Put hand between door and door panel and pull panel outward. be careful.  sometimes firm tug is better

  5. Compress the actuator drive to take out any play in the linkage and tighten the screws.
  6. Test the locks and install the door panel.
