If you are talking about the front door panels, I just removed it on my 2000 a few days ago, as the top 'clip strip' was coming off and jamming in the door frame (found out that a hot glue gun works great to fix this).

Assuming there was no change between my 2000 and your 97. there are two hidden screws -- one behind a squarish rubber cover that is toward the top rear of the the door 'glove box' and another one behind the plastic cover that is over the door lever (that you use to open the door from the inside).

Good luck!
