I can give you generic info on how door panels are fastened and removed. I hope this helps. The outer perimeter of the panel is held in place on the sides and bottom by push-in fasteners that match holes in the door frame. These fasteners have button heads that attach to the back side of the panel, and the have ribbed shafts which are pushed in to the door frame holes. There are screws and/or bolts that secure the door arm rest and door handle molding to the frame. In some designs the screw head are concealed by small buttons, or by a piece of molding plate that pops out.
First step is to locate and remove all these screws. Next step is to place a screw driver at the edge of the door panel, between the panel and door frame and pry the panel away from the frame. There is a trim tool that is made for this task (relatively inexpensive) that you can purchase at the local auto parts store. The sides and bottom of the panel are popped away from the frame. After sides and bottom are loose, the top is released by pushing up to release the upper window molding from the frame. Be careful of wiring on the back side of the panel (electric windows, locks, etc.) Unplug all electric before you remove the panel totally.
Those nylon fasteners tend to break when the panel is removed, but they are replaceable (again, at your auto store). Just take one with you to match it up.
I hope this helps you!

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 probably have a problem with your Sliding Door Control Module. You will be money (and frustration) ahead if you begin this diagnosis by having your Body Control Module scanned.
