Default Removing interior door panel

hey guys, i'm trying to remove the interior door panel to get to the speaker. I have the panel away from the door, but the handle is in the way.

anyone know the trick to get the panel over the handle?

thanks,

there should be a bolt behind the handle in the hole where the handle is. its hard to see but it pretty big once you find it. just unscrew it out and remove the handle

no problem. let me know how it goes. i just replaced my door speakers and i have to say, it was one of the easiest mods i have done. the door panels came out in like 2 minutes and the speakers went it in like 5 min because they didnt exactly fit in. the speaker adapters made everything also much easier, no cutting wires

i dont think that should make much of a difference. just look for that bolt to remove the handle otherwise there is no way to remove the panel

well, you just need the remove the plastic handle. be careful not to remove the whole setup. maybe you should take a pic of it so we can get an idea
