Default looking for specifics

I've been looking through the forums here, and found some threads on the subject already, but I need some specifics. I am trying to remove the interior door panels of my '97 SC1 so I can install new speakers.

I removed all the screws (Including the hidden 3rd on in the handle), now I'm having trouble with the manual window crank, and the black plastic clip on the side (Which I'm guessing is the same or similar to the clips that hold the rear dfeck covering on). I know for the crank your supposed to take some cloth and work it back and forth between the crank and the door (I've done this and have the crank off about a centimeter, but that all) the clip on the side I assume should pull right out with some gentle force.

Now, as for the panel itself, does it have clips or is it one where I can just slide it it up, left, or right? This is my first car and I consider it my child so I don't weant to damage it.

Semi related story: I already have the rear speakers replaced, I did that earlier today with a friend. Since the speakers I got were 6 1/2, instead of drilling new screw holes, which I'll do for the door installation, (which we didn't realize was what we supposed to do when the CircuitCity Sales Guy said "They'll fit perfectly in 6 3/4 opening") my friend and I used a silicone adhesive, which worked perfectly. And since we're bth computer nerds we souldered the wires, and they sound excellent! if I could just get the front ones installed...

since you want specifics and like tinkering around with your car, I would say go down to the auto parts store and buy a chiltons manual

get a copy of the pages from the Saturn factory service manual or the installation sheets from Crutchfield.

Alright, I'm a little late in adding this, but better late then never:

Since my local bookstore (Borders) didn't have the "Saturn" Chilton manual in stock I went to the local auto store, they didn't carry Chilton's, instead they had "HAYNES" manuals, they had the one for saturn so I got it (Cheaper then the Chilton's but I don't think it's as detailed), along with a handle removal tool.

Anyway, they removal of the door panels was easy. Once we got the drivers side off, the passenger side was childsplay. Although I said I would drill new holes for the door speakers, We decided not to, and instead, (Once again using Silicone), adhered the plastic "speaker guard" that had been with the stock speakers and then (yet again using silicone) installed the speakers. the only trouble we had was that we forget to grab some tape to hold the speakers in place while the adhesive otherwords we sat their holding the speakers for 45 mins (I think we advanced our Carpel tunnel a couple of decades) My only major gripe though was the handle removal. the tool I bought didn't quite line up correctly until I bent back the top on the handle with had a right angle in it, and used it "backwards" other than that the job was a piece-o-cake!
