I always worry about breaking something when removing door panels and side panels etc. without knowing where the pins are.
Did you use any special tools and do you have any other advice on door panel removal? Any other side panels need removed etc.?
Some more photos would be cool if you have them.
door panels are easy. just don't over tighten then screws when putting it back on. The door sills are a PITA to get back on. Basically it uses 1 time pins. I ordered 2 more. I just pulled the rear seat panels off a little bit. just where it meets the front door so I could get the seat belt off and the carpet out.. no special tools needed.
