JK Door Panel Help Needed!!!

Hi, I have a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport, I need to remove the door panels so I can install power door lock actuators (don't ask why I didn't buy a jeep with power locks, it's a long story) any way I've got the door panel off and there is another panel behind that, I removed all the bolts and screws holding it on except there are two screws in the middle of the panel one high and one low they are screwed on from inside the door it looks like they are connected to the window guide track does anyone know how to remove this panel?

Ugh! I'm dealing with the same issue! Did you ever figure it out by chance? If so, please share.

The internal panel, which is where the window assembly is attached to is kinda tricky.....once you all screws out, in the middle near center bottom you will see some holes or snap off pieces that are close together, one on each side of the window track that need to come out so you can push a blade screw driver in each side to release the white plastic bracket holding the glass......let me now if you still need help@!!!!!!!!!!

Actually not many people would ask why. I would be more inclined to ask why the heck you would want power locks on a Wrangler.
