They are held by plastic type rivets..you have to gently tug from the bottom corners and work your way up ..dont pull too hard or you might damage wiring, make sure all screws around arm rest are off and door handle, this is where manufacturers tend to put screws in.

Door panels


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
