I don't have a diagram, but it is NOT a one person job. These doors are HEAVY! You support the bottom of the door. Find the connector for the wiring to the power locks, windows, mirror and speaker, and unplug that. To remove the door, undo the bolts on both hinges that hold the hinge to the door. That's all there is to it. Mark the door where the hinge flange is mounted, as that gives you a base line for installing the door. If you are changing the door, you will want to change the lock from the old one to the new one, and that is pretty straight forward, but you will need to remover the inner door panel. Again, not hard, but finicky. Hope that helps.
