Step 5: You can now lift and remove the interior door panel.
Step 6: GENTLY peel back the water shield. Be careful not to tear it, as we'll need to reattach it later!

Step 14: To reattach the interior door panel, simply reverse the removal process.
Be sure to tighten the Phillips screws (4), reconnect all wiring harnesses, and reattach the plugs to the trim panel (and then, of course, the trim panel to the door).
