ok you mean to reach the control box for the driver side? Okay, then all you should have to do is remove the two srews along the bottom of the door pannel, then pry off the piece of trim that is behind the door handle. Get a screwdriver and pry up along the area between the speaker grill and the trim piece. Once that trim piece is off you can lift up the piece that has all the buttons for the windows and locks controls and disconect the wires from it. Once the windows and locks buttons piece is off there is a screw under there that need to be removed that is holding the door pannel to the door. Once you take that screw off all you have to do is lift up (vertically) and then pull the door pannel away. After you do it the first time it is really easy. No more push tabs, and you only have to take out 3 screws.
