The panel is held on with screws and clips. The screws are usually located in the armrest portion and possibly one around the door handle. Once the screws are removed you grab the door panel from the bottom and pull. The clips will release from the door. It is not uncommon for some of the clips to break or seperate from the door panel. Just reinstall the clips back into the panel and replace any that may break
