did that - I removed the screw under the arm rest. I removed the window power switches - but there is something else holding the panel on - I believe there are more screws

Then follow these instructions. I can only recall to have two bolts that holds the panel on around the inner door handle. Check under the power window switch, although I don't think there was one in there. Also there are push in type retainers at the middle of the panel as well, not just around the edges and they are hard to release.
