You most likely have a faulty door lock actuator. To remove the door panel there some screws that have to be remove at the arm rest and the door handle beneath the handle. After that the panel is attached with push in clips around the outer edge of the panel. I would start at the bottom of the panel with a plastic wedge of some sort. Oncnce you get it loose pull the panel away from the door. Thanks

I saw the screws in the arm rest but not on the pull handle. Do I need to pop off that panel? How about the panel over the electric window controls?
