I'll lay this marker here in case anyone else comes along and needs this information be it a hobbyist or pro installer. Let me say that these doors are very robust and would do fine on their own without the need for sound deadener. However, like anything else us DIY'ers like to do is tinker and curiosity gets the best of us. So without hesitation.....
To remove is as follows.
Remove pop up button on the inside door near the side view mirror.
Remove stealth door handle cover that is in turn hiding the screw
Remove felt within the door handle to access the screw
Gently lift the automatic window switch/ door lock tray upwards. Disconnect switches. Be careful doing this as they all require you to pinch down a lock that's holding it in. Do NOT forcefully yank or pull.
