The door panel has controls for all these features, which means there will be some electrical connectors inside the door.
If I wanted to remove the side view mirror, I would remove the foam sound deadener (red arrow).
When I replaced the manual lock lever I make sure to insert the bent part of the rod in the slide hole of the back of the lever.
