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.

There is a spring clip that holds your window crank on. Your best bet is to get a window crank remover. You can get one at most automotive parts stores. They're only a couple of bucks. You shove it in behind the crank, and then turn the crank, and it'll pop the clip off. When you re-install it, put the clip on the handle, line it up where you want it to be when the window is closed, and give it a bang with your hand. It should pop back on.
The arm rest will most likely be held with a couple of large philip's head screws. They are usually on the bottom side of the arm rest, sometimes the top, sometimes hidden by nylon plugs. Some vehicles only have one screw, and then you slide the arm rest forward to remove it.
I'm sure you'll figure it out once you start looking. Good luck!

you can take a screw driver and pry it off. Be careful if you have power windows, if it falls right off then it could pull the wires loose. The panels have clips that clip to the door. Therefore, the only way to get the panel off is to pry it off.
