HOW to remove Door Panels?

The handle has a screw on the forward end but it's still strong on the door. How to get to the rest of the handle?

Do the wood panels pop off or slide or do they stay on the door?

Seems like the front part of the door is attached with J-shaped downward facing plastic pieces. That's all I've been able to remove so far because I don't need to be breaking the panel fasteners by being dumb about it.

What's the trick(s), gentlemen??

Remove that light cover on the bottom, there is another bolt in there then you use your hands and bang the whole panel upward.

good on ya', firemaster. Piece of cake once that second bolt was removed.

I greased the regulator slides in hopes of getting the "clunk" out of the window when it hits bottom or top. Will greasing do anything at all to help?
