I haven't taken the cover off for several years, so please understand this as general advice.
1. Remove the visible screws on the inner door panel. There are 5 or 6. Remove the lock button - it unscrews.
2. At the bottom of the inner panel, inset a thin scraper plus a piece of plastic between the tool and the painted metal surface of the door, and pull out an inch or so.
3. Lift the inner panel up about an inch so the top is free from the lip that holds it in place.
4. From the back, unlatch the cable end that hooks/slides onto the doorhandle. Remember the way the cable loops around. Remove all the wireclips.
OR, skip step 4 and simply support the inner panel, and remove the button-rivets that hold the tweeter cover in place. The 2 bolts that hold the tweeter itself also support the side view mirror, so don't drive around without the 2 bolts.
5. When youu re-install the door panel, you will probably need to replace a few of the button-clips that hold the inner panel to the metal door. The 4 to the front are a little bit larger than he rest. Set the top lip of the inner panel into place on the lip, with the unlocking rod through the hole, and pop it down with the fat part of your palm. Then pop the the rest of the clips into their respective holes. The rest is just a re-install. Good luck.
