Hi. This Guide will help you with this issue.
Step1 Check out how the door panels are attached to the car. Most panels use screws and bolts but others have snap-in fittings. Gather all the tools you need for removing the door panels. If the panel is attached with screws and bolts, you need a screwdriver or ratchet and socket. Car door panels with snap-in fittings are easily removed with a flathead screwdriver. Step2 Locate where the screws and bolts are before starting. These are usually found in the arm rest area, along the bottom or sometimes near the door lights. Step3 Roll down the car door window. Begin removing all screws and bolts that hold the door panel onto the car. If your car has snap-in fittings, pry gently on the bottom corner of the door panel until the fittings pop out. Step4 Remove the power window control panel if your car has power windows. The control panel should pry out easily, and then you unplug the wiring harness from the back and place it to the side. Step5 Use an L pick and flashlight when locating a manual window crank. Look behind the window crank and slide the pick under the edge of the metal clip that holds the crank in place. Remove the clip and pull the crank off. Step6 Remove the door handle by unscrewing the small screw located in the center. Gently pull the door handle out until you see the back of the handle and unclip the rod from the door handle. This should remove the handle unless the handle and door lock are attached, then you just unclip the rod from the lock and remove them both together. Step7 Unscrew the cap off rear upper corner door panel locks. These don't have a rod attaching them to the handle and unscrew separately from the door handle. Step8 Pop the door panel off after you've removed everything. Gently pry on the bottom edge of the door panel until it releases. Pull out and up to completely remove the door panel.
Please rate and have a great day:)

There's actually some more screws you missed.. they'll be hidden near the door handle and the armrest that you'll need to take off...once the panel's off, 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

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

You should find screws in the armrest and plastic push clips evenly spaced around the edge of the door panel. Use a stiff putty knife, slide it between the door panel & the door frame. Slide it left or right until you find the clip and pry up. It will pop out. When you have poped all of the clips out push the entire door panel up to disengage the top from the window edge.
