Hello, Remove all screws on the handle. Then remove all clips on the inside of the panel. You can then slide the panel up. The key is to be very careful not to break any of the plastic clips. Best of luck! CarGrrl

Remove The screw in the centre of the triagular plastic piece +the one in the inside doorr handle +one inside the door pull, Take out the two plastic popout fittings front edge of the door, and pry the bottom of the door panel. There are 3 barbed plastic fittings. Pull the bottom of the panel out so you can see up inside the panel. Unplug the electrical connector, Then pry out on the ends of the the plastic housing that goes around the botom of the inside door pull. You should be able to reach up and push out the arm rest assembly. . Take of the two brass screws and this will separate the switch from the arm rest ..To open the switch to clean the contacts you have to remove the lock/unlock buitton tab, it just pops off.There are 3 spots on each side of the switch you can pry out and you have the switch exposedto clean all the contacts Re assemble in reverse order Just finished doing mine. Took two hours start to finish James
