You have to remove the triangle trim piece on the inside to get to 3 nuts. You also have to remove the door panel to get to the 4th nut and to disconnect the wiring harness.

thanks. sounds easy enough but i think getting the door panel off will be the trick part. any special tools or pry points i need to be aware of?

I think there are just a few screws along the bottom and maybe one behind the reflector. Once you get them out, the bottom of the door panel should pull away easily. Just pull out on the bottom to get your fingers behind it and then lift up. I recommend rolling the window down before removing panel so you don't accidently scratch it and it makes it easier.
