Default 9-3 Door panel removal

Searched the forum but failed to find the instructions. Anyone have a link or instructions on removing both passenger and driver side door panels on a 2002 saab 9-3 SE? Got some 6.5" Kicker component subs to compliment the JL 6x9's in the rear. Thanks for all your help thus far!

To add to that, I would really love not to pull anything off the sweed without knowledge; unlike some overeager people, lol.

There are 5 torx screws you have to take out. One under/behind the door handle, pop out the round center section of the door handle to access, two behind the door pull, pop out the top section of the pull as it is split in half, and two on the bottom of the door. Then pull the door material out and up. There are a few plastic pop in connecter that have to pop out. Finally lift over the door lock knob

Thank you. is it fairly easy to work with? What section should I pull out first? And, do I need to remove the door handle?

A very easy task, be it...There are now, finally, on the market, plastic pry tools, but I do not believe these are necessary..
