Remove every screw you can find in the panel, you may have to look upside down to see them all. Sometimes you have to remove the grille from the speaker so the speaker can be removed before removing the panel. Lift upwards on the panel to unhook it and unplug all the electrical connections.

Remove the lock slider by prying the rear out with putty knife.
Remove the surround at interior door handle by prying the leading edge loose and lifting out.
Remove the 7mm headed screw behind/below the grab handle.
Pull the whole panel straight upward and toward you to remove partially.
Reach between remove the courtesy lamp by rocking the socket downward.
Unplug the power switches by squeezing the tab and pulling EXCEPT
Unplug the power window module by lifting the tab(blue or gray) in a rotating fashion then unpluuging.

I can actually pull the whole door in the same time frame.

You will never find all of he hidden screws. Go to Schaefenacker on the web. They sell tow mirrors and have an instruction pdf that tells how to remove the door panel in detail. Of check www.ttt-mirror.com

Edity won't load, so with another post, once you go to the above site, click "fitting instructions." Lot of good pics to add to heymccall's instructions.

There's another 7mm screw under the door lock slider you have to remove too. And the one under the door pull handle. The rest are just "1-way" clips. Buy you some before yanking it off.

I may be mistaken, but I don't recall any clips on the door panel. It lifts off of hangers IIRC.
