I did this on a 93 Safari. You have to take the inside arm rest / handle off of the door, then remove the entire door panel. There's an insulation, sound deadening sheet glued to the door beneath the panel. Some of that will have to be pulled back as well. After that, it's all about contorting your arms into shapes you never knew they could make by reaching way up inside the door, loosening a few nuts on the back side of the handle itself and pulling it out through the outside. Probably would help to have a friend when you try to put the new handle on.

How do you remove the inside door panel on a 1997 Saturn Wagon?

The inside door panel cannot be removed; instead, to get to the inner workings of the door remove the OUTER panel. Lift the outer door handle to expose the pins that hold the outer handle to the door mechanism. Then press out the pins and remove the handle. Then remove the screws around the perimeter of the door that hold the outer panel. The panel should lift off, exposing all of the inner workings, then you can verify that the inner panel does NOT come off.

How do you take off a car door panel?

Since this question is in the Saturn area, it must be assumed that you are asking about removal of a Saturn door panel. The inner door panel of a Saturn is not removable, it is integral to the door frame. However, you can remove the outer door panel. First, remove the outer door handle; lift the handle enough to reveal the pins that hold the handle to the door latch mechanism, then press out the two pins and set the handle aside. Next, open the door and remove the screws around the perimeter of the outer door panel. After the screws are removed, the outer door panel should lift off easily.
