'91 560 SEC Door panel removal

Can anyone advise me as to how to get this door panel off? I have to replace the window regulator and can not get it off. I have removed all the screws and the door handle screws but I can not get the actual panel off. Am I missing something?
Any help would be appreciated.

If it's like the 300E, you have to unhook the door pull rod and slide the small handle assembly forward and out. For me, this was the key to get the door panel to come off. The panel has clips that require you to lift it up and out.

Definitely search the archives as well for more detail. Good luck.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I can't take credit for this but don't remember where I originally got this info from.

1. Unscrew and remove the door lock plunger
2. Remove the cast metal plate around the door striker
3. Remove the 2 visible screws holding on the arm rest. There is a third one holding the top of the armrest which you can't see yet.
4. Using a small flat screwdriver, carefully prise out the plastic cover under the door opener lever. (The frame around it is actually cast metal, but it looks like plastic)
5. Remove the screw that you now see. It holds on the metal frame around the opener lever. Remove the metal frame.
6. The third screw holding the top of the armrest is now exposed. Remove it and the armrest.
7. Now comes the part where you can remove the door upholstered cover and liner. The cover is actually hanging on special plastic clips which pull it snugly into the door frame. Grip the base firmly on both sides and lift upward, then outward. You will find it comes off quite easily.
8. The lamp at the base of the door will be connected with wires. Slip off the connection, and the cover is free.
9. Next, carefully remove the plastic liner. Try not to tear it. If it is in bad condition, use the old liner as a template to make a new one. (Stick it back with silastic/silicone sealer)

Hope this helps.
