First, remove the triangle shaped light at the rear of the panel. It's easy to break, you must get a slim screwdriver behind it to release the plastic tab that holds it. There is a screw underneath.Remove the sideview mirror panel. One screw under it.The door pull handle has two screws, there is either a cover over them, or they are accessed from below at an angle. Remove the power window, seat, mirror switches. They are held by a spring clip at the front of the switch. Use a slim screwdriver to pry this back, insert between the armrest and switch at the front. Careful not to damage the armrest, it's easy to do. There are Torx head screws which hold the wiring harnesses. Remove these, and CAREFULLY pry the harnesses of, straight out. It is easy to break the switch, apply pressure between the switch and harness only. With the switches out, you can see the remaining screws to remove. After that it's just the plastic "Christmas tree" clips around the perimeter of the panel, these are best removed with a tool made for this purpose, with a "V" end. Pry only on the clip itself, not the panel, or the clip might pull out of the panel and damage the hole it's mounted in.

Using a screw driver, remove the screws and the clips that are in the door panel. Gently pull the door panel away from the frame, remove any wire connectors and the door panel should be free.

well on my 1997 buick you pull a black pin out of the air duckt in the panel...then take out two screws in the arm rest, then you pop out the red light in the door and there is a screw behind there.....then move ur door handle to the open posistion and pop out that plastic molding, then just slide the panel up. im not sure if its the same but im sure that will get you around some of it.
