Door Panel removal...HELP!!!!

I almost have my door panel off but the last things giving me problems is the round plastic things that are actually visible on the outside of the panel, I'm afraid if I pull too much something will break...help me!!

Btw I am removing it to try and fix my inside handle that is no longer working

Got pictures ? Ours was 5 screws, pop off the window crank, and use a christmas tree tool to pop the clips. Lift out at the bottom and up.


Christmas tree clips.

If you don't have it, a pair of putty knives on each side to loosen, then grab em with a pair of side cutters. You can get replacements at AutoZone, Advance, dealer

They'll probably break no matter what you do. Just get some replacements at AutoZone or similar before you start pulling them out. Those things are seldom worth trying to reuse.

Yeah and honestly they are what are considered "one time" fasteners.
You can try and reuse em, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't hold tight.
