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.

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.

SOURCE: rear door panel
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

1. Open window & remove door lock knob. 2. Remove 2 screws from armrest & remove armrest. 3. If manual windows, remove windoe crank. 4. Pry under & remove trim panel around door handle, remove any un-covered screws. 5. This is the fun part, the door panel is affixed with plastic retaining clips, slip something thin under door panel until you can feel where clip is and pull door panel away from door at that point. These clips are suppose to remain in the door panel, but rarely do. They usually remain in the door itself. do this for EVERY clip you find, there are clips approx a foot apart around the entire panel. Good luck. 6. After all retaining clips are pulled out, lift panel slightly to disengage panel from flange at base of window. 7. Disconnect any electric wires or switches and there you have it. Try not to curse.

Before you take the inner door panel apart try to spray an oil like WD40 into the door latch mechanism & Open & close many times. The return spring for the latch has stuck and it needs some waking up. Getting then inner panel off does not help that much in access.
