Question about Cars & Trucks
Depends on the year, make, model, but generally, you would look for any visible screws to remove. some are hidden behind very small plastic covers. (one or two always behind door handle)
almost always one or two more inside the little cup/pull that you crab to close the door.
once the screws are out, use a flat screwdriver or pry tool and start from the bottom corner of the door panel.... pry it away from the door just a little and try to get a visual on the pop clips that hold the door panel on.
pry and pull with care to pop them out of the door.
(most often, some will break or the pop clips will stay in the door....others will remain on the panel)
Work your way around the border of the door panel and pull away with care to see if any other spots are screwed in place.
once everything but the top is off/free, you will pull the panel away from the bottom (watch out for the door handle catching up) and lift up to remove the panel from the top of the door.
This is rather default, but not too hard.
install is the reverse order, but make sure all the little pop clips are back in the panel and not still stuck in the door before you go and pop it all back on.
Just a bump of the palm over the clips will put them back in place.

SOURCE: rear door panel removal
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'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge.

Removed two screws from the perimeter of the door, one in the back edge and the other under the bottom. Remove one screw from the handle cup where the window switch is located. Placed some tape around the edge of the handle cup for protection against scratches and pried the cup out with a small putty knife. It is hard, but will pop out. Next I taped the paint around the door panel and used a flat bar to reach behind the panel and had enough of a gap to see the orange tabs and pried each one to remove the panel completely. The panel does not need to be lifted up to removed, just pull it straight off the door. A few tabs may still be holding, but will pop off with a bit of pressure.
