Default Door panel removal

Potentially stupid question here. Is the procedure for removing the front door panel ('06 GT) the same as removing the rear? Chrysler's website gives instructions on how to remove the rear panel but not the front. My Haynes manual is no help because they show a pre-2006 panel. I need to check for a loose speaker connection. Here's a link to the site. The instructions are right under the rear speakers:

This is right out of the '06 service manual:

The panel on the '06 and up isn't the same. It doesn't have the screws around the outer edges.

I'm still laughing, that drawing is right out of the '06 manual. So it's just the screw through the handle, yes?

It's funny that they have that illustration, because this is what an '06 panel looks like:

The only visible screws are in the handles. Trust me, I double checked.

Yeah I been wanting to remove the front door panels from our '07. The front door panels look exactly like the pics posted of the rear door pic here. So far I hadn't saw but two visible screws either..

Guess I'm not very helpful. I have an '06, but it's a vert and the door panels are different.

I appreciate the help. I just don't understand why the Haynes manual only shows the process for the pre-'06 panels.

The piece that I posted is from the OEM manual, and it shows that older doors too. Weird.
