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).
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.
Then I removed the wire connector from the
door lock switch.
Once all the fasteners and accessible
electrical connections had been removed, I
lifted the door panel upward to unhook it
from the metal door shell.
The red arrow
points to the mounting clips, which are
different from the hooks (green arrow) which
anchor the bottom.
