Dizzy Removing the door trim panels

Oops!! I posted this over in the wrong section, so I am reposting it here....


How hard is to remove the front door panels in a 99'' SL? Is there any ''special tools" I need? I am looking replace my factory speakers here soon.

Any tips? Ideas for removing the door panels without destorying them?

Thanks but, I don't have power locks or windows like the one in the picture. How do I remove the manual door handle?

the door handle, or the window crank? The door handle will be the same, minus the power door lock harness. I've not messed with the window cranks before, sorry. I think they are probably held in by a clip behind the crank, and have seen "removal tools" in parts stores before. Sorry I can't be more specific.

Window crank. I think the door handle comes off with screws.

Removing the window crank is fairly easy, you can probably just stick a thin flat-blade screw driver behind the crank (I have done this before) and there should be a little clip, and this should release it....be careful though...so it doesn't fly too far. Once that clip is removed the crank handle should easily just slide off. Make sure you don't lose the clip, you will need to put this back on during re-assembly.
