Default Power Window Problem - How to Access?

Passenger door power window made a bang/crack noise on being closed. Next time used it goes down but not up using power window control from either door.
I can push the window up with my hands so it appears something has become disconnected or broke inside the door.
Question is: how does the door panel come off? Can't seem to find any bolts, screws, clips etc.

It is pretty easy (if a bit tricky the first time) aided by some plastic tools you can pick up cheaply at Harbor Frieght. Do an advanced search for Front Panel removal and select just the T1N forums - as I recall there are several write-ups. They are better than what you see in the service manual.

An all-too-common failure is the little roller that rides in the track breaking. (the "window regulator")
Many people have replaced it with a shower door roller bought from Home Depot.

I Used the Search box to locate one of the numerous threads with photo essays on the procedure:

I made my own from a piece of nylon chopping board. still works fine. Looked heaps stronger than original.Trim lifts up about 15 - 20 mm after you undo a few torx head screws from memory
