Thanks for using Just Answer, below are the instructions for the door panel removal, hope this helps you out.
NOTE: Do not pull on the trim panel to remove clips from the inner panel holes.
NOTE: Be cautious while loading panel over door handle.
I would like to think this is the right way to do it. It looks reasonable to do. I don't need to remove the whole door upholstery as I see it. Correct? I appreciate your help. Thanks.
