How to remove drivers door panel?

I need to get access to my drivers side door actuator, so how would I go about taking off the interior door panel to get to it? Any help/tips would be greatly appreceated!

There are 2 bolts (10mm) holding the door panel on, they are located where the interior door handle meets the door panel and you also have to take off the little black thing behind the door latch( one screw), and then just pry the door panel off carefully because you will probably break some of the plastic studs holding in the door panel.

i also live in eugene, let me know how it goes

just removed mine today to find out my window regulator plastic roller thingy broke. like the guys above said there's a few screws and bolts.. be careful popping out the panel. i used a regular flathead. the plastic pop in screw things are funky looking cause they also have some type of prevent guide which i could only assume is to get us to buy specialty tools for. bunch of these plastic things broke. the black plastic parts i kept and will hot glue back on when my part arrives. try not to break the red plugs either. you'll see what i'm talking about when you pull it-no other way to get around it.

I didn't get a chance to take it off today, tomorrow I'm going to pick this up in hopes that it'll help me avoid breaking anything
Lisle Door Upholstery Remover - Model 35400 at Sears.com
But if I do happen to break any of the tab/screws, any idea where I can pick a few up?

the tool is probably a waste of money i have taken off just about every door pannel on my disco more than once and you do not need any special tool. Bob at the sports car shop on 6th street has them but he charges alot for them, roverconnection.com has them for $1, i have a bunch laying around so just let me know if you need some

Eh, it's only $9. I'd rather spend the money here then have to buy some new clips because I know I will break one somehow

Took me until today to do it, but all went well No broken pins, but the screws that hold the drivers side storage bin thing broke where the meet the door panel. Why the hell did LR use screws that were so damn short???
