Default How to remove front door panel?

I would like to know how to remove the front door panels on a 2006 rio sedan with power windows as I could not find any information in the rio forum so far and I do not have access to a repair manual. Any info would be appreciated.

Ever pull a door panel before?! Nothing special about ours...

Pretty straight-forward: remove all exposed screws, some will be hidden under little caps. I don't recall anything particularly difficult about removing my panels (way back....) other than the manual window cranks. With power windows, I've found that with most vehicles you pop the panel holding the switches up from the door panel and disconnect them that way. After that, run your fingers between the panel and door and pop the plastic holders.

I *think* you may also have to pop the corner piece, where the manual mirror controls would be. Mine just popped off, with two plastic holder deals.

Pretty simple, just take your time and pay attention!!
