Taking the interior door panel off requires the Lock/DoorOpen lever's plastic bezzel to be removed. This can be frustrating and damaging to the bezzel unless done correctly. There is a thread about removing the door panel at http://www.spydermag.../doorpanels.htm, but it does not adequately describe how to safely remove the bezzel.

1) Remove the main screw (hidden behind a little door in the central depression).
2) Place a butter knife or similar between the top of the LockLever and the bezzel. Pry the tab up and over the pivot shaft while pulling gently on the upper aft end of the bezzel.
3) Place a butter knife or similar between the bottom of the DoorOpen lever and the bezzel. Pry the tab down and over the pivot shaft while pulling gently on the lower aft end of the bezzel.
4) Slide the bezzel toward the rear of the car and outward to disengauge the hook.
5) Done.
6) Replace the main screw, as it secures the Lock/DoorOpen assembly to the door.

If your Porsche is not anhydrous, there IS a substitute.

Impressive drawing. I'll expect the next one to be rendered in 3D ;)
