Removing door panels from auto's are all a little different, but very simular.
1) Locate and remove any, and all screws from the panel(if any, some door panels do not have screws).
2) After removing all screw's, you will want to disingage all of the pop clip's located out of site around the outside edge of the panel. For this you will need a panel and trim removel tool. It looks like screw driver except it has a forked end and is bent at 45% on the tool end. The tool can be priced as high as 40.00 from company's like Snap-on, or as inexpensive as 3.99 from company's like Harbor Freight. After you have the tool, simply place the forked end between panel and door, and gently pry up until you feel the pop clip release. Repeat this process for all clips.
3) Now make sure that you have all screws for things like window cranks removed, and be carefull of power window wire's and switches.
This should free the panel from the door. I hope this helps you.

You will need to remove the inside door panel, what that takes I don't know, but it must come off to access the door latch, there you will likely find the latch release control rod has come off or the latch is defective.

Are you talking about the door handle hinge? The door handle and hing do not need to be removed to remove the door panel. Remove the door handle bezel and the hole will be big enogh to come straight off with the door panel. See the picture below. This is the only diagram supplied in the service manual. It shows the bezel for the driver's door but it states that the rear door is similar. If you allready have the bezel off, or you are not talking about the door handle hinge, I don't know what you are talking about when you say "hinge thing"

Did you remove the trim around the door handle. There is a bolt there that needs to be removed. There may be one where the side rear veiw mirror is.

How to replace '96 Ford Explorer driver side exterior door handle


You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.

Door panel removal for 2002 9-5 on driver rear


On the inside trim, you can 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. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls
