The thing that confuses everyone is the removing the door handle (where you grab to close the door when getting in) To remove simply pull upwards and it pops off, no screws. Inside will be two screws. There is one screw in the door opening handle. Then there are two chritmas tree fasteners that you simply push in on the center and then pull the whole thing out. Once you have all the screws and trees out, you need to twist the door opening handle so it can slide in behind the door panel. The rest of the door panel is held on by more trees behind the panel that simple need a little tug.
