Mike, there are some great instructions on here

"1. Roll the window all the way down.

2 Inspect the door panel on the surface thoroughly. Look for areas on the interior door panel that have circular plugs that match the interior design and composite. There should be one toward the front of the door near the top of the panel. Remove this plug by gently prying it out of the panel with a flathead screwdriver. Remove the Phillips head screw beneath the plug.

3 Locate another plug in the cavity of the armrest where your hand would go to swing the door shut when sitting in the S10. This one is going to be a long, narrow rectangle. Remove this panel. Remove the two Phillips head screws beneath it.

4 Remove the Phillips head screw on the door handle molding. For manual window operation, pry the center of the handle base off gently, remove the screw beneath it, and remove the handle. If you have large-headed door locks, you can unscrew them and remove them as well.

5 Pull the door panel inward toward you to unsnap it from the door. You'll have to brace the door against your leg while pulling the panel in with your fingers. Be cautious in case there are more screws missed on your model Chevy S10. Work your way around the circumference of the door; the more you unsnap, the easier the panel will be to manipulate. Be careful if there are power locks or power windows. because these will require a wire harness plugged into the inside of the door panel. These can easily be unplugged once the panel is free from the door."

Thanks for your time, Mike. However, my S-10 Blazer is a '93 four door with power windows. I need to R&R the driver's side door panel to fix the door handle spring.
