My AU11 is a XR8 with premium sound. I say this because maybe the speakers in the doors change the way the door panel is removed. I am describing the front door panel removal.

1. Remove the door lock knob by pulling it up.
2. Remove the two screw covers covering the screws which are above the speakers by gently prizing them out with a screwdriver.
3. Under one of the covers (the one closest to the speaker) is a 10mm bolt, remove this bolt by using a small 10mm socket.
4. Remove the two screw covers on the bottom of the door and remove the two phillips screws underneath.
5. Remove the phillips screw that is near the door lock knob but on the centre pillar side of the door panel. This screw is the only one that is not under a removable cover.
6. Remove the door release bezel by gently prizing the top of the bezel between the vinyl and the bezel with a screwdriver. For this you need to be gentle in order not to damage the vinyl.
7. Once the bezel is off you can see another 10mm bolt underneath that must be removed.
8. Gently prize up the electric window switches. I prized mine up carefully by using a screwdriver in the gap between the armrest and the electric switch panel. Unplug the electric switch panel which is a captive plug so you need to use a screwdriver to release the catch. You can also do the same for the electric mirror plug once the door panel is off.
9. Under the electric switch panel is another phillips screw that must be removed.
10. The door panel can now be removed by gently prizing it away from the door. I just used my hands for this but maybe you will need a wooden spatula or similar to assist. The door panel will offer some resistance and pop once the clips release. If you encounter strong resistance maybe you have another clip or screw etc that needs to be located.

Dont forget to unplug the electric mirror wires.
