Do you have a workshop manual? If not invest in one, it will show you this and more......

Have you removed the lock knob thingy on the top of the door trim? Also the window sill trim of the door trim is held in place by metal clips onto the metal frame of the door. You will first need to remove the door lock knob and then yank the whole door trim, holding on the top half of the trim, upwards. The door trim should come off as a whole with the window sill thingy (the black soft/fine strip that touches the window), but sometimes the door trim could come off without the sill...but that shouldn't be a worry.

Hope that helps.
