Frank, YA ready?????? The first thing is a kind of trim ring which snaps around the parameter of the inner door handle. You need a small flat faced screw driver and get a piece of cardboard which you can slip between the screw driver and the panel where ever you might pry against so you don't cut it or mark it.
Take the cardboard place it against the door panel right at the top of where the inner door handle trim ring is and out near the end at the top, push the screw driver under the ring , twist it a little and the ring will pop loose. Do the same on the bottom and the back of the ring hooks the the handle.
Next, on the end of the armrest, you can put the screw driver between the upper and lower sections at the back and lift up on the upper section. (it clips into the lower section. ) Once you have lifted it, the front section of it just hooks, so pull it backwards and you can remove it.
Next, look down into the little pocket you put your hand in when you pull the door shut. Most of the doors had a small plastic cap which you pry up and below that cap is a screw which you remove with a # 6 phillips screw driver (that is the most common size phillips used) Once the screw is out, move to the front of the arm rest and pry it up like you did the back one. It is designed the same way.
This part will have the switch(s) in it. The connector has a latch lever near the center of the connector where it plugs into the switch. Push the lever down while rocking the connector side to side a little while you pull on it. The connector should easily come out.
There are two screws which fasten the door panel to the door around the area where the arm rests were, They too are phillips head screws. On rare occasions you might find these two fasteners with bolts that have heads which a 10mm wrench or socket will fit.
The last place is the bottom. On the bottom out toward the ends are plastic clips which snap into the door shell it self and are affixed to the door panel. Pry lightly between the panel and the door shell and the panel should pop loose.
Once it is loose, you lift the panel up and off the door, do not swing it out away from the door.
If the door has lights at the bottom, unplug the light before removing the door panel, it will be obvious how it comes loose.
Good luck.
All the doors come apart about the same way.

SOURCE: rear door panel removal

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

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. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge.

If it is the rear door panel, you start by lifting, pulling upward, the door closer/arm rest.
Remove the electric window control and disconnect wire from switch.
Remove two hex/phillip head screws which are visible when you remove arm rest.
Remove a plastic screw on rear edge of door located about 6 inches below window glass.
Gently pry around edges of door panel to force plastic fasteners (approximately 6) out.

theres a small panel behind the door lock and handle.
pop that off, and unscrew the screw found.
After that, it just pops off, and back on.
You have to disconnect all the wires, of course.

I had to pop them off to tint my windows.

2001 nissana sentra door panels


There should be a screw where you put your hand to close the door and a screw under the door latch remove both of those. next pop the plastic clips out that hold the panel in place by prying on them with a flathead screwdriver being careful not to scratch the paint. now the door panel should move but wont be completly off. next reach behind it and disconect the two rods by uncliping the clip on each one. if you have power locks and windows disconect the wire harnesses by pulling them apart they usualy have a tab you have to push to unclip them.

Remove door panel


open the door, remove the screws holding the piece which you pull when closing the door, remove the screw on the door opener, check and pull the bottom part, they are just being hold on by clips.
remove any wires that is in the panel.

if it is still binding, check for some hidden screws, sometimes they are just being covered by any thing.

tnx 4 using fixya,
