    Thanks for this assistance. I've now got the door panel off. However, I cannot fix the locking problem. The door will not lock from the inside or if using the key. Any suggestions?

It is attached with a wire clip and there s a very affordable removal tool which slips behind the crank handle and pushes it can be dug out with a hook scribe but a bit frustrating and can cause minor damage to the trim

    As you are probably noticing with the panels removed, each device is connected to the latch by a remote lock rod which will activate the latch. These can be knocked off or the retainers can be broken alot of times by persons "slim jimming" the vehicle during lock out. If the rods are attatched and moving the latch mechanism, check the (3) latch mounting bolts in the jamb/side part of the door and verify the latch and striker are in tact. Ive seen inoperative latches due to all (3) mounting screws missing from the latch. Finally you may be faced with replacing that latch if all appears to functioning and mounted properly

How do I remove the drivers doo panel to get to

It's usually the window winder that presents the problem . Remove all visable retaining screws ie; Grab handle , Internal door opening lever , Button on top of panel (if applicable ) etc . The majority panel are a pop snap on type . Remove the winder lever withthe aid of a shoe lace or thin piece of cloth material, The winder is retained by a horse-shoe shaped spring clip. .... Pull the shoe-lace/ material in the opposite direction of the winder retainer clip and it will easily come off, but it is a spring clip and may fly off so be careful. Good luck

How to remove drivers door panel and window winder

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
