Question about 2001 Cadillac DeVille
I just removed the passenger side door panel with two long screw drivers, a putty knife and an eight mm socket on a quarter inch drive ratchet. First of all I did NOT have to remove any trim or the door handle which stays attatched to the panel. I use the putty knife to protect the paint from being scratched by the screw drivers. Insert the putty knife, ( started at the bottom) outer edge. Next insert the screw driver on top of the putty knife and pry a little to create a gap. Now insert the other screw driver near the first one and pry. It will take some effort to pop the plastic fastener but that is what holds the panel on and there are several of them so just work your way around. I stuck a 2X4 mid way between the panel and door so I could see and gain access to the two 8 mm nuts holding the arm rest secure. I removed these screws from inside or inbetween the door and panel so no damage or removing the arm rest from the dor panel. Use a flash light to spot the nuts.After they are removed and all the plastic fasteners are pried out ( there was a stubborn one for me on top near the door lock) then pull UP on the panel to clear the window sill. Pull up and out at the same time and it should come out. Be patient because they are fairly secure and there are several of them.

On the inside trim, you can 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. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls

Tips for a great answer:
DOOR PANEL REMOVAL
Its just fitted with few screws and hidden lock clips. The clips are very delicate and can break easily. But no worry, the clips are easily available.
some vehicle models these screws are hidden. Once the panel is
loose, don't just pull it out, there are few wire connectors connected,
first disconnect the connector plug, then lift the panel out and keep in safe
place for re-installing.
