The door panelss are secured to the door frames with four torx screws and a series of clips.

To remove each one, use the following tools and instructions:

-Small and large flat-head screwdriver [wrap the head of the larger one with insulating tape to protect against damage while prying]
-T30 Torx screwdriver

Remove the tweeter-door-handle surround:

Using the small flat-head screwdriver, pry off the surround by "attacking" it where the two "circles" join.
