Two screws at each end of the door pull, remove the switch plate by prying the front (I think) with a flat blade screwdriver, and removing the electrical connections, then "pop" the plastic panel retainers around the perimeter of the panel with a door panel retainer removal tool (you can do it with a large flat screwdriver but it usually "rips" them out of the panel instead of "popping" them out of the door), then smack the top of the door panel with the heel of your hand while lifting up and out.
***Prior to the lifting up and out, verify that the panel appears to be loose except for the top edge.

Great info! You might want to buy a panel remover from your local parts store. Cost me $5 bucks and helps keep you from breaking the plastic clips. They are cheap to replace, but it is annoying to have to go to the stealership for such small pieces.
