There should be six or seven allen wrench screws around the edge of the door panels. Loosening these releases the retaining clips inside. You will then want to remove the manual window crank if you have one by laying two fingers flat on the door panel and pushing the ring around the base of the crank sideways. You might have to rotate around this as it only pushes one way. Next you will have to remove the two large golden screws directly under the door panels handle. If you have rear door panel speakers you will have to politely pry off the speaker grill with a flat blade screwdriver and remove the speakers four screws and the wire clip from behind the speaker. You will also have to unscrew the door lock post. Then you should be able to lift the door panel up to release the top lip of it from the door.

You'll see a small ring on the inside of the crank where it meets the panel. That ring holds the crank in place. To remove the handle simple push the ring up and the handle will slide right off. Depending on the position of the crank the ring might have to be pushed up down or sideways. Hope that helps.

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.
If you don't have power windows you will have to remove the manual window crank. It is held in place by a clip on the back side of the base. To remove the clip, you will need a small hook (kind of like a knitting needle). Put the hook in behind the base, and grab the clip and pull it off. To replace it, slide the clip back on the window crank, and snap it back on the door.
