Removing Front Door Panels

There is a screw behind the handle that opens the door.  Then you pop the
sides and bottom off and pull up to unhook it from the top.
The trick to the armrest screws is to use a flashlight and be sure you get
the Allen wrench in the head.  It is easy to miss the head.  Use ball end
wrenches to make it easier.  Also, they do not need to come all the way out.
They just need to be loosened to unhook them from the hooks on the door.

Good luck.
