A few more notes on this...
Roll your window down first. It will make it much easier to reposition the lock ****, and will protect the window if you get frustrated and yank up on it.
There is a screw at the bottom of the door as well as in the grab handle location. Also, the window crank has a plastic cover hiding the screw. Pry this off with a flat blade screwdriver and rotate the cover around, pivoting on the spinner ****. Then you will need a long shank T-10 or T-15 (can't remember which) to remove the screw in the middle to get the crank off.
Use caution not to break the spinner **** off, and don't try to remove it. Just rotate the cover around the **** so you can access the screw. If you don't have a long-shank torx screwdriver, you can use one of multiple bit kinds. Just insert the bit in the hole first, then lightly insert the driver being careful not to allow the magnet in the driver to suck the bit in. This will allow you to get a few turns on it, since the driver won't likely fit in the hole where the screw is.
While you have the door panel off, douche the latch mechanism with WD-40 and tighten the screws holding the speaker on as well as the nuts holding the mirror on.
