SOURCE: door panel removal
Sorry it took a couple days to post, computer problems I can't fix.
If he has not already taken care of it, here is what should be the case for the door panel.
On the door panel there will be either clips or screws in miscellaneous places, for full removal of this panel, one will need to have the window down on the car. There is a piece of molding that goes across the top back of the door panel that serves as both a guide and a noise reducer for the window. This piece clips the panel into the door itself. There should be a couple of screws around the door handle itself, and a couple on or under the armrest. There is a panel that I believe clips on at the base of the door panel called a kick panel. The keywords here are patience and kid gloves. This panel needs to be removed to access a series of screws that will need to be removed in order to get the door panel off. a flathead screw driver would work for the removal of this item, lightly prying around the edges. There should be two or three screw on either side of the panel as well.
I'm sure there wont be any difficulty for him in finding the screws, but the only thing I can't emphasize enough is patience. When dealing with 10 year old plastic clips, there is an imminent risk of breakage, they are cheap enough to replace, just an avoidable hassle.

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 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
