Piece of cake there are torx screws all the way around the inner door shell,remove them all,then get a putty knife and put it below the black molding that is touching the glass ,then tap it gently.then to take the outside handle off you need to pull the handle up ,like when you are opening the door,and if you look closely at the inside of the handle you will see a small plastic pin that you will need to pull out.and then you just pull on the panel and it should come right off.hope this info will help.

Remove the OUTER door skin to get to the window hardware. Lift the outer handle, press out the two retaining pins then, with the door open, remove the screws that are around the edge. You will find some of them by examining the bottom inside of the door. After the screws and outer door handle are removed, the door skin just lifts off and you can get to all of the window hardware.

the door skin is very tricky to do, it can be done but it will actually be cheaper to buy a used door from the junk yard and repaint it, plus you won't have to worry about all the weld waves in the door skin.But it can be done.

They are stamped into the door frame, you can't remove the arm rest. However, if you're wondering how to get to the INNER mechanism of the door, you have to remove the outer door skin. Instructions are elsewhere.
