Default 1991 camry driver's window revisited

The driver's window is broke mechanically. I am attempting to remove the
driver's side panel to lift up window for the winter but have problem
removing panel.

What is secret in removing the panel, please? I have removed all the screws
but apparently missing something.
Thank you,
Seamus J. Wilson

Well when I remove a door panel the first thing to do is remove the
screws. Some are hidden under plastic plugs or in light covers or
under handles, etc. The worst screw I saw was in the carpet near
bottom of door where you could never figure out. During this process I
gently pull on door so you can figure out where resistance is coming
from.
After screws removed you can yank out plastic holddown. Use the
tool that looks like a screwdriver with a big flat tip and a groove in
middle to hook out plastic holddowns around perimeter of door. Or you
can just grab edge of door panel and yank out but sometimes this causes
plastic to break or holes in panel or door to break, especially in
panel which seems to be made of like a heavy cardboard. You can lie
down and gently pull edge of door to locate plastic holddowns.
Once side and bottom edges of panel are loose you pull upward on
panel to remove it where it goes down where glass appears out of door.
Sometimes you remove triangular plastic piece to make pulling upward
easier.
You usually also have to manuever handle into panel to remove it.
Just kind of pull gently to see where resistance is felt and wiggle
panel to see where hold downs are.
Also you have to unplug door controls from panel.

Thanks for help. The side panel has been removed, unbroken.
Best,

Look at the end of the door. Where the actual closing latch is. If you see
a hole about 2 inches under the latch this is where the bolt fell out. This
bolt holds the whole track in place. I had to put a large washer on the
bolt and refasten it. Compare it with the door on the other side. Window
did not fall off the track again. works fine.
