First take off the lil sail panel thats right above the door handles (its held by clips which u can just pull on it and it pops off)...
Now on to the door...
Roll the window down, push down the lock (or you can also unscrew them).
Now remove the screws holding the panel on...
2 in the pull handle
1 where the chrome door handle is
3 more around the whole panel itself
If you have the non electric windows u have to take off that window doohicky (crank)

Then there are these plastic clips behind the panel that hold the panel to the door still... you can get a cloth and a flat putty knife or something flat but rigit to lift up the panel enough to get your fingers under it... and simply pull along the edges to pop off the panel from the door.

BEFORE you pop off the panel from the door completely... have your dad or you get ready to help you hold it so you can disconnect the wires from the locks, etc etc... so this way you don't scratch up the panel.
BTW There is a plastic shield that keeps the door insides from getting wet etc, it's held by I think glue some silicone if I remember. Then when you are done just do everything backwards (but carefully not to forget any connections, screws or the weather lining).

Now after thats all done, it's smooth sailing from there.
