reverse order to replace door handle
Remove one Phillips screw from leading edge of door panel (near latch).
Remove small cap behind the door handle, inside another Phillips screw -
remove screw and then the cup behind the handle. Look down in arm rest
and there is another Phillips screw. Last screw is behind the
approximately 1 1/2 inch plug on front upper corner of panel. At this
point, gently pry around lower edge and sides - there are either five or
six clips pressed into the door frame. Once all are disengaged, gently
swing the bottom of the panel out and lift off the top edge of door next
to window opening. Once panel is off door, gently remove the control
plug from the door lock/window control on the rear of panel. Install in
reverse order hope this helps

Difficult to describe without pictures & illustrations.
1. The door handle is two-piece and the top piece is pryed off/out with a small screwdriver (needs to be removed in order to access two phillips screws behind it.. one at the top and another at the bottom).
2. The door release handle (inside cover) also has a small square cover that needs to be removed to access another phillips head screw behind it... then the cover pops out.
3. Below the arm-rest, there are two more cosmetic plugs covering two more (larger) phillips head screws which must be removed as well
4. The tweeter speaker (forward upper corner of the door is also 'popped' out to allow lifting the panel out of the door frame.
5. Now, there are approx four (4) more screws which need to be removed (covered by cosmetic bottons) three (3) aft and one (1) (possibly 2) forward.
6. Finally, the door panel is held in place by several pop-in round clips. Start prying at the bottom of door panel to start popping them loose & work your way upward to the top of the door panel... once all pop-in clips are popped out, you can now LIFT on the panel to remove it from the door frame. -- careful with the wire harness & connectors inside the door panel & cavity.
first remove the tweeter speker if equipped this comes off easily by gently prying from behind, then remove the small panel behind pull handle you"ll find a screw behind it\remove that,the next part is a little tricky the door grip needs to come off to achieve this place a small flat screwdriver at the top of the handle and pry forward the turn handle counterclockwise and this will release it from the clips you"ll then find 2 screws one at the top other at the bottom of door grip remove those and then gently pry from the bottom of the door panel to release the retaining clips thats it
These are general instructions,the first thing to do is remove any screws and unscrew and remove the door lock plunger at the top of the door,there will usually be two on the interior door handle inset in the side and possibly one on the door latch handle,I'll assume you have a crank window not power,so to pull the handle take a screw driver and gently pry between the panel and handle there will a small clip that holds the handle to the shaft you can usually push it off with the tip of a flat screwdriver, be careful they like to fly off.If you do have power windows a small screwdiver on either side and then pry genly up will remove it and pull the wiring plug to the switch.On the latch handle if there is a screw remove it and then pull the handle out this will give you enough space to pull the plastic cover behind it,if there is no screw squeeze the top and bottom towards each other ang genlty pry with a screw driver and this will remove the beauty ring and there should be an opening in the panel large enough to slip past the latch assembly.Once your pretty sure you have all the screws removed start at the bottom corner of the panel and gently pry between the door and the panel with a large screw driver(you can purchase a tool at a parts store to do this but it can be done safeley with a flat screwdriver)this will start pulling the plastic fastners that attach the panel to the door,its possible you'll break a few but you can buy these at your parts store,continue doing this across the bottom and up the sides,you'll know if you missed a screw at this point if the panel doesn't start pulling away from the door freely.Once your sure you have all clips free and no screws holding the panel on remove any wiring attached to the panel(window,speaker)pull the bottom of the panel out just a bit and push up on the bottom and this will disengage the panel fromm the top of the door.Reverse to re-install,if you do have crank windows put the handle slightly on the shaft and put the clip on the handle,then push the handle back on.Hope this helps ,if it does please give me a good rating!!!
Looking at the opened door from the inside remove the philips screw near the upper hinge. Pry the speaker grill off with a thin blade putty knife, starting at the bottom left and work to the right. Remove speaker screws and the three screws in the recessed plastic spaces behind. Remove the square covers behind the handle and in the arm rest. Remove the 2 philips screws exposed. Start to pry from the top hinge side between the plastic door panel and the metal door. Work your way around the door until plastic clips release. Once the bottom of the panel and sides are free, lift the panel up and off the door being careful not to pull wiring and door handle mechanism loose. Unplug the as much of the wiring as you can and support the panel so as to not stretch the wiring. Pop the plastic retaining clip on the door handle connecting rod and lift the rod out of the handle. Slowly peel back the vinyl/rubber door cover stuck to the metal door. The window is held in the lower track with two clips that are bolted to the track. Unbolt by raising or lowering the window and using a 10MM socket on the nuts to loosen. Remove the window seal along trhe bottom of the window opening by prying straight up. You can then remove the window and re-epoxy in the lower clips and reassemble window in reverse order.
A: To remove the plastic piece with the door lock button and door handle connected to it:
1- Remove the screw in the middle located behind a plastic cover button 2- Push (slide) the whole assembly Forward (toward front of car) Besides the screw, it is held in place by 3 hooks on the backside that hook into holes in the metal door frame 3- Now unhook handle from small metal bar going through door by pushing (toward door) plastic clip (blue?) off of the bar, then the bar will come out of the clip hole, thus releasing the handle. 4- Depress little grey button /bar (purple painted on it)on elec. connector to seperate connector, thus releasing door lock switch
Now the whole assembly (metal handle, door lock switch, and plastic piece) will come off door panel
B: The door is held on by 2-screws, 7-plastic snaps/plugs, and 1-plastic plug.
The screws are located: bottom of hand hold and the other behind the handle, both covered by little covers that have to be pryed off to access the screws.(hint: the screw with the built in spacer goes behind the handle when you are trying to reinstall) The 7-plastic snaps: 3 across bottom and 2 on each side. Not visible, they are mounted to the inside of the panel. The 1-plastic plug is visible at the upper front of the panel and is the same color as the surrounding trim
C: Take off the big plastic triangle piece above the door panel and behind the mirror. Pull/pry off. It has 2 snaps holding it on. one near bottom and one near the front.
D: Light lens prys off from bottom. Unscrew (1/4 turn) the light assembly with bulb still intact from backside of panel
There is a screw behind the ashtray of the door, and also another
in the armrest of the door.....underneath little cap. Once removed, the motor assembly can be removed by drilling the rivits out. The
replacement can be installed by using M5-0,8mm x 12mm bolts
and nuts (part # 44192 at Advanced Auto Parts. Motor assembly
for window was purchased at Salvage Yard for $40.
