there will be screws at various places around edge of door panel and in the door handle trim etc then when all out carefully pull trim away from door starting at bottom edge aand work way up each side ,when it is loose in your hands lift the panel straight up out of the door window trim
They use push pops. They are the tight ones and will mostly need to be replaced if you take the panel off. They will break. I think there is a couple of screws in there as well. Check the bottom of the panel for screws. Then pry on it will a pry bar or standard screw driver.
There is two screws in the door pull, may be some along bottom. If you don't have a door panel tool, you can use a 2" scraper to go under the panel and pop out the fasteners.After you have them all loose,lift straight up and away with the door panel.
i am not familiar with this exact problem but most cars have a combination of screws and plastic push fasteners. look in the area of the door handle and see if there are screws usually they will be in the area where your hand grips the door. some times there are screws on the panel at the bottom of the door. i have found those screws by actually laying down and looking up at the bottom of the door panel. once you think you have removed all the screws try lifting up on the door panel. sometimes they have hooks on the back that will disengage as you lift the door panel. if the panel does not lift try using a wide putty knife around the edge of the door gently lifting with increasing pressure to remove teh push type fasteners. you can also get a special tool that is shaped like a spoon with a slot down the middle so you can lift on either side of the fastener. good luck hope this helps

There are 2 screws holding the window switches to the door and 2 screws for the door panel, one is in the pull handle, the other behind the window switches.
