door panel off. if you have manual windows there is two screws behind the the door handle, then one up top then one on the bottom. then pop the cover off the handle crank it swivels out of the way. then there is a torx bit screw behind that. then pull UP on the panel not up. right behind where the mirror is there is a stuck on film pull it off and there is what 10mm nuts that hold it on 3

The plastic cover on the window crank snaps off to reveal a screw on the crank. Thats the way my 2001 is made. Yours should be the same.

Remember that the screw in the crank is a torx screw. I'm not sure of the size though. It's around 2 or 3mm.

Hmm. Mine just pulled off, a flat head screwdriver and some prying would probably work. But who knows. Well I'm sure someone knows.

I just found out when I was replacing my speakers yesterday that there's a screw on the door panel next to the air vent. It's broken on the left door so I found out when I got on the right side and kept struggling to get the panel off and then realized there had to be something holding it down on that side.
