I have the same problem on a Toyota Tercel 1997. I am trying to remove the door panel with the door closed (I can not open the door because the door knob is stuck in the lock position). I think I will have to cut through the panel. Have you found something ? My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org

Remove the snap ring from under the inside door handle and plate (a rag around the base of the handle and a left-right tug on the rag may loosen it, or look under it & pry the snap ring off with a small hook tool
Remove the door lock knob bezel; remove the screw & slide it rearward
Remove the door trim; Remove the two clips; slide a thin, flat wide tool under the panel and pry towards you, there are 8 clips to dislodge
Pull the door trim straight up once all of the clips are loosened.

My 96 Camry LE has 9 attachments that are visible. Some have plastic caps covering the screws; others do not. There are screws at the door handle, at the forward portion(with covers) when the door is open and the back edge (small covers). As I recall, there are several friction type fasteners around the perimiter of the panel that can be removed by prying carefully away from the metal portion of the door to free up the trim panel. Once these are loose, the trim around the inside door release handle (the one you pull to open the door) can be pryed in a backward motion. Then the entire panel can be removed by pulling upward and backward at the same time (it easier to do this with the window down). Then it is a matter of disconnecting the wires attached to the various controls for the electric windows and door locks to free up the panel itself. There is probably a plastic skin covering the metal portion of the door. Carefully pull that away to expose the inner workings of the door latch mechanisim. The rest of the procedure should become easy to figure out. I have not removed the exterior door handle itself; but it is a simple mechanism as I recall. Best of luck to you.
