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

do you have a ski hatch in middle of back seat ? if not then allegedly you "make" one and reach through with an improvised tool to release the boot catch from inside !!!!!!
look on t' bright side . your boot is next best thing to a safe on wheels.
