It should help but sorry to say we need to know how to remove the door panel.
How about some snapshots of the panel and the screws that we need to remove and procedures to get it off?

Thanks for the help.
I was able to remove the door panel myself, and the pictures from legitimate007 will help me with the rest once the part gets here.
I don't have pictures but here is the basic procedure.
1. Remove the screw under the door handle part (where your hand goes)
2. Remove the cover behind the door handle.
3. Remove the 2 screws of the speaker next to the window.
4. Next you have about 7 or so Christmas-trees you can remove with a crowbar.
It was surprisingly similar. Except there are christmas-trees at the top as well.
