How To: Remove Door Panel

1999 Montana

I'm replacing the passenger side mirror and trying to take the door panel off so I can get to the wire (which has slipped down inside the door). I've removed the two 10mm screws and popped out all the plastic pins holding the panel in place, but it still will not lift off. There is something right behind the door handle that is still hung up. Do I need to remove anything else to get the door panel off? I don't want to tug too hard and break anything.

Thanks in advance for any help!

My memory is a little scarce on this, but I think there may be two screws holding the arm rest to the door and one in the general area of the door handle mechanism.

You may need to pull out on the panel to clear the door handle mechanism while you lift the panel up. The top of the panel sits in a channel at the top of the door. Might also be easier to remove with the window down.
