you might also have to drill out the rivets that hold the lock actuator on to be able to manage the last roller into the scissor assembly. Use larg 1/2 in sheet metal screws to reattach.

unless you are mechanically inclinde don't mess with it get someoen you love and adore to do it for you, you can break the tabs that hold the door on and it can get expensive the worst part is it might not open at all if you don't understand how to operate it unless you have one of the experts here helping you with it step by step, but could take as much as 4 hours depending on your ability to work with your hands. Some people just don't need to own wrenchs they are a danger to themselves and the public at large, not saying they are not smart but just don't have the know how and motor skills. I am telling you this so you won't have a headache on your hands.

The door is installed by holding it at a 45 degree angle and lowering
the top edge until it meets the window gap. It is snapped down then
simply swings into place. Then it is pressed together until the plastic
clips sap closed. After that the pieces like door handle, arm rest and speaker and grill cover are installed using screws. This is for both hard plastic and soft door panels. Just reverse this process.
Start by checking the arm rest. There should be several screws that attach it to the steel inner door panel. Depending on the door handle and if equipped, the speaker and cover.
Once your sure all that you have checked for all mounting screws then the next step it to pop the door panel off. The panels are attached using plastic clips that are attached to the panel. These clips will have a male type prong that snaps into a female receptacle on the steel inner door panel. Starting at the bottom place a wedge (like a scraper or wonderbar) between the gap of the panel and inner steel door and pry it apart. The best place to start is at the lower outside corner. Once you have a couple popped apart you can use your hand and pop the rest. Do this at the bottom and work your way across and up because the top lip where the panel and window gap meet are held differently. That section needs to be forced up.
Hope this helps
