I am working here from memory but first you need to remove a plug at bottom of the indent in the armrest then remove the screw under the plug. I removed my 2001 regal panel with a flat nail puller. I started at the rear bottom and pried the corner with a screwdriver blade until I could see the first plastic pop rivet (this may not be the official name). I then pried with the flat bar just like removing a nail but with far less force required. Do this slowly to prevent damage to the door, panel, and plastic rivets. Then you can pull the panel back and find the remaining pop rivets, I recall about 6 pop rivets and, if you're careful, you won't need to get new rivets. You should then be able to get at the wiring harness for your power windows and door locks and disconnect them by prying slightly with a small flat screwdriver on the retainer clamp. Finally lift the panel off over the door lock pop-up (there may have been some spring clips here so be careful). Then you can remove the plastic guard adhesived to the door (I was able to re-use the original plastic over the original adhesive). Reverse the order to re-install and I just used my fist to bang the panel back in place after carefully aligning the plastic pop-rivets. I replaced two window regulators (front and rear for about $80 parts each verses the first one that cost me $350 via a body shop). A rather bad design since the window will fall down (trust me it will happen especially in the South) once the plastic clips decay (really GM plastic when you probably could use metal for another $1 per window?). Again I may have missed a few steps but if you are even still considering it now you should be O.K. I think I popped the control panel out of but I do not believe it was necessary. The entire operation took me about an hour first time.

Use the right sized screwdriver, remove the screws and panels from the door panel and pull the panel away. Remove the wiring connections, and the panel should come free.

You remove the glove box door by opening it, and squeezing the sides in. Right behind the door you will see two screws holding the resistor, unplug it, remove the screws and pull resistor out.

find yourself the correct bit for your drill or driver and go along the outer edge of the door panel and you will find the first screws to remove, then you have to remove the plastic cover on the armrest handle where you will find another screw and you will also have to remove the black plastic piece that houses the door handle.
