Hey and welcome - please visit often and hope you find other tips for yourself - post a few pics, etc. As for the door panels, they're pretty straightforward - use a good quality plastic trim tool to first get the inlay trim out, one screw behind it, then the trim from the most vertical section of the grab handle - a screw under at top and bottom, then the door opener/handle trim, then around the outside - just clips. Take care with several wires/harnesses.

I got these 2 trims out. Total of 3 bolts under them. What do I do after that? I tried to pull the door panel out but its too tight so I stoped before I break any clips or something. Is there anything else I need to remove before pulling out the panel?

Use a PLASTIC term tool and pry at each clip around panel perimeter - I think you got the bolts, so only the clips should be left. It's not uncommon to break 1 or 2, but that doesn't have to happen ...
