The door panel can be taken off by doing the following steps (if I remember correctly)
1. Unscrew the door lock (the black thing u push down to lock the door or open it)
2. Open the door and look on the side of the door. The part where the door locks should be a black plastic piece with a screw in it. Unscrew that and take off the plastic piece by pushing it up.
3. take off the black plastic piece on the door handle (inside) by just pulling it off.
4. This part is hard to explain but i'll try to tell you. Pull the door handle (inside) and attached to it is a rod like metal piece that hooks onto the handle from the back. Push this piece up and it should unhook from the door handle.
5. If you're doing the passenger door you need to take out the triangle piece between the door panel and the mirror, well actually it covers the mirror. It should come off by pushing it up and out.
6. The last thing you need to do is pull out the light on the bottom of the door. You can do this easily by prying it out using your hands or a screwdriver if neccessary. Then detach the bulb from the wiring by pulling it off.
7. Now you can just push the panel up and it should pop out.
The whole proccess takes about 5 to 10 minutes but it'll probably take u longer considering that the directions are probably hard to understand, hope this helps.

Sounds to me like instructions for 126.

For 124 you have to do the following:

1. remove handle for mirror adjustment (driver side only) it has a hidden lock that slides into the handle
2. Remove triangle piece, by sticking something (flat and hard if metal you can cover with something) at the top portion and pushing out
3. remove seat adjustment knobs all three by simply pulling them out
4. Behind knob for back adjustment you'll see a small plastic ring remove it
5. Now remove the black cover by pulling top left corner a little bit to clear knob mounts and then pulling upwards
6. remove other black cover that goes around door handle by just pulling.
7. under the cover you'll see a small foam piece pull it out a little and you'll see a 10mm bolt remove it
8. remove seat adjustment box by removing two screws
9. remove door handle by pushing forward and out disengage rod
10. remove the plastic u that Blackbenzz mentioned on the door latch small screw and then pull out bottom a little and then downwards
11. this is hard to explain, inside the pocket you'll see a hidden lock that slides (bottom of pocket) slid it into release position
12. if coupe remove chrome piece in top left corner.
13. Now you are ready to remove panel just remember there is are no snap-ons like the newer models your is always up and out.
There are numerous hooks in the back that require you to push panel up and out to disengage. When putting back pay attention to top of panel that it engages properly into the window channel. Lower the window for both removal and installation.

Good luck
