your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your
interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on
clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the
switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to
pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to
prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled,
pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.
If you don't have power windows you will have to remove the manual window crank. It is held in place by a clip on the back side of the base. To remove the clip, you will need a small hook (kind of like a knitting needle). Put the hook in behind the base, and grab the clip and pull it off. To replace it, slide the clip back on the window crank, and snap it back on the door.

You can and it is not difficult, there are two bolts holding the top of the headlight to the body just over the radiator and a couple of screws holding the indicato in place, but you can access the back of the light fitting without doing so . It is a bit of a squeeze on the battery side.
