Remove all visible screws on the door pad, then get a butter knife, they do have a tool for this at all parts stores for about $5.
Slip the tool between the door pad and the door, starting on the bottom of the door. Slide the tool back and forth to find the carrots that attach the pad to the door.
When you find a carrot pull the tool to pop the carrot out. Then go on to the next carrot and so on.
When you get all the carrots loose on the bottom and both sides you will then push the door pad up to get it off the lip on the door shell.
There are a couple of tabs on the top of the of the door pads that hold the door pad on, if you bend the door pad away from the bottom of the door gently you should be able to see the tabs. A flat bladed screwdriver is all you should need to release the tabs and the pad will pop right up.
Now there are wires that are connected to the switches on the pad you will need to unplug. But you should have more than enough room to get them off once you get the carrots loose.
