Default 2004 Spectra door panel removal??

Hey guys,

I'm trying to change my front speakers, but I can't get the front door panel all the way off. I'm removed everything including the window crank and now it seems like its just stuck at the door handle. I removed the screw for the door handle but I still can't get it off. The door handle is stuck to the mechanism in the back, but how do I remove it to access my speakers? I've looked at the other forums on 'door panel removal' but I didn't find the answer to this. I have manual locks and I read somewhere that you 'unscrew the lock', but how do I do that?.. my locks don't spin!

Please help guys.. thanks!

After you remove the screw connecting the handle to the door frame, if its still stuck just push it towards the front direction of the car, it should break loose. The handle has a plastic shape that snaps with the door metal even with the screw off, but its easily removed by the method i just mentioned.
