I have a 95 so it shouldn't be that different. There is one screw at the bottom and two in the handle. The plastic peice where the window button is should pop up and pull out. Unscrew the switches from that peice. There sould be another screw in the door after removing that peice. Take off your lock knob and also remove the cover that protects the opening handle. Lift the panel up and it should come right off.

The 1996 geand marquis door panel ha a hidden screw just beneath the armrest cover. Simply "pop' the cover up and you will find the "hidden' screw. the rest is much the same of removing any door panel. good luck.
