    Removing door panels is pretty much universal.

    There is a tool for removing Crank handle clips, but you can use a couple thin, flat screwdrivers or a couple credit cards.

    there is usually two phillips screws around the armrest/pull handle and the perimeter is Panel snaps that you remove with a forked tool.

    Here is a guide

    with the door closed I don't know how to remove the panel without damaging it. If it's the lock that is jammed have you tried lifting the window seal a little to spray some lubricant at the lock mechanism?

    Removing the seat bottom should give enough clearance to pull it inside... in theory.
