Haven't done it in some time but here's what I remember.

Remove blanking plug and screw at the door handle cup
Remove wood panel by sliding it forward
Remove panel screws revealed by removal of wood panel
Remove screw hidden behind round rubber air duct
Remove screw at the top of the grab handle/armrest
Remove behind puddle light lens
Remove push-in retainer at front of door trim panel
Use trim tool or wide blade to lever door panel away from the door
Lift panel upwards and away
Be mindful of speaker, light, and switch pack wires as you lift

That should be enough to get you started off in the right direction. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

Cheers
DD

Zane-tip: Lift upper trim piece vertically using a couple of O-ring hooks on the window-wiper/seal channel:

I had tiny screws raining out from under upper trim panel on a rear door (thinking "Jag left some FOD in here during assembly) but once I got it off I realized I had been breaking it, because window-wiper-trim channel was "stuck" on door. So I had to painstakingly glue and clamp all 5 or 6 screw-holes back together.

Panel may still feel rigidly attached at aft end of armrest. It is the clip shown below. Most likely, the steel spring clip will not disengage from the white plastic surround. Pull panel outward enough to clear Christmas-Tree clips around edge, but if you apply brute force and awkwardness yanking on the armrest, you will break the plastic piece. Instead, pull upward on the arm rest and "work it" a bit, rocking fore and aft to allow the plastic anchor for the spring-clip to slide up off the door sheet-metal. You can see the channel in the plastic in the photos below. For re-install, separate the spring clip from the plastic anchor, reinstall the anchor in the door, then push in on armrest to seat the spring clip. (I used silicone spray lube and compressed the spring clip a few times in hopes it will make "next time" easier.) Rear doors have two screws at back of armrest like at the top, instead of this screwy arrangement.

Regent,
Since you're going to "carve it in stone" and I just now found my picture of damage, I edited to show the reason I recommend lifting the upper trim out by a couple of hooks. Only an issue if your trim-channel is stuck or figdety, but by the time you figure that out..it is too late!

I didn't need to remove very much to access the check-strap but it was a simple matter to carefully peel back the styrofoam around the edges sufficient to give me access. The edges are stuck down with a flexible sticky goo, no idea what it is called, and when it came to close it up again, it was still sticky. In fact, while I was working on the check-strap I doubled the foam back on itself so that the goo could hold it out of my way.

If the foam had been damaged, I would have used a broad packaging tape to close it up, again.

Your pics nailed it. Just reinstalled all my panels after replacing all the speakers.

Good work.

(P.S. After many years and models of door panel removals, I have never needed one of those tools. Just wedge my fingertips in and yank, spreading the pull area over more than just one point.)
