Remove all the screws and pop the panel off, most of the retainers are spring or friction christmas tree pins, the screws will be hidden under trim in and around the door handle, and maybe under the light in the door.

The first one is always tricky, putting it back on also.

Behind the door handle is a trim bezel that is just velco.
Remove and remove phillips screw behind it.
Door lock button has a trap door that lifts out then the button pulls off.
Behind that is a torx srew that holds the lock trim to the door, remove.
Next are the push type clips that hold the edges of the panel to the door.
These must be pryed away from the door all the way around the panel.

Now for the fun part.

After pulling the bottom of the panel away from the door stand up and firmly grab the door armrest/handle.
In a jerking motion, pull up and out on the door panel. there will be a large electrical connection to release behind the panel.

Install is the reverse of removal, but still tricky.

Hope this helps.

How do i remove the left rear door panel On a cadillac Deville DHS 2001

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
