Question about 2001 Honda Odyssey
I don't have your exact vehicle specifications, but I'll just throw out some general info.
Generally, the door panels are held on by several bolts/screws and plastic clips (that are not visible from the the outside).
I would start by popping open any small cap or cover around your arm rest and you should be able to find those screws/bolts. Sometimes the armrest will come completely off, sometimes they don't and are molded into the panel.
Next, I would remove the inner door handle. Usually held in place by a bolt or screw and then, generally, pulling or tugging on it enough to see how it is connected to your door system. Many times its a long wire with a hook on the end into which a small plastic retainer clip on the handle is connected into the hook. Don't bend or pull too hard!
Once you've verified that all the bolts/screws are removed, begin on one end of the door and begin tugging on the panel to separate it from the door itself. You can also use a flat head screwdriver to get you started. There will be plastic clips of some sort that will give resistance, so don't be afraid to give it a good tug. Usually, if you damage any, you can get replacements from the dealer, auto parts store and sometimes even hardware stores, but try and be careful.
After that the door panel should be free.
