How to remove front door trim panel

I need to replace the outside mirror so can any one give me the steps needed? I guess the switches have to come out so do I pry the bezels out first and does the arm rest pad have to be removed?

It is VERY easy....... Remove about 5 screws, most around the perimeter of the panel, and 1 (or 2, I forget) at the door pull handle and armrest. Then pull on the panel starting at a bottom corner to pop the serrated pins out. After the bottom and 1 side is free, do other side. Then lift it up. Disconnect electrical connectors from window switches, lock switch, mirror switch. I have removed them quite a number of times on G4s, G3s and G2s, and with practice, I can have a door panel completely off 3 minutes or less after opening the door to start the process.
