Removing Drivers Door Panel

I'm looking for some instructions to remove the drivers door panel on my 93 RM sedan. I need to replace the Exterior Door Handle. I don't want to break anything, so I thought I'd ask for some guidelines in removing it along with the door handle.

The 93 front door may be a little different than the above reference. Remove the screw in the upper insert, and remove the insert. The lower screw is in the back corner of the pocket. You also have to remove the arm rest screws, and the strap/handle screws. The next step requires you to remove the tree fasteners. Locate them, and use the proper panel tool to lift under the flange of the fastener, so you do not break the standoffs on the panel. After loosening all of the tree fasteners, if you lift up on the panel a little, and smack it at the rear corner along the window (open the window to make it easier) while gently pushing up on the panel, it should pop off. There are 3 nubs that fit into notches in the door along the top edge, one at the rear, one in the middle, and one in the front. If you have not removed the control panel, you can release the front with your finger by reaching between the door panel and the door. The rest should be common sense.

Thanks for the info. You're Awesome!!

The door handle is what I need to replace. Do you have any suggestions or things I should be aware of to do that?

Pretty easy. The rod for the latch is a little bit of a pain, but will submit if you work at it.
