Once you get all the screws out there are push clips that hold the panel in. I started at the bottom and moved around the edge of the panel. Once you get all of the clips loose you will have to pull up on the door panel. It would help if you had the window rolled all the way done.
When you get the panel loose roll the window up about 1/3 of the way up you will need to be houdini to hold the panel and get all the connectors off.

I jumped ahead on the pics to show the position of the window. I screwed up and had the window all the way down and had to hook back up door switches to get it back up

back to all the cables and connectors on the door panel. The cables are easy you just have pull the end of the cable out of the gripper then to get the cable into the slot and push down it is just like the brake lever on a bike. This pic is upside down. This was not very hard, just don't force it. It should come right out.

The next few shots will be of the door panel while I am holding it. There are A LOT of wires that connect to the panel. be careful and try to remove the ones that are the shortest first and move to the longer ones. The are all keyed so you can't screw up.

Once you get the panel off you should have something that looks like this..

My next step was to start to remove the mirror... yes the mirror the black trim in just kinda held on by itself there is one push pin near the mirror and a nut that you can see that holds the trim and the tweeter.

Next get the 10mm nut off and remove the mirror. I cannot remember at this point why the mirror needs to be removed but I did it.

I think the mirror needs to come off to help with getting the glass out. Yes the glass. There are two bolts that hold the glass tabs on the the regulator. One tab is red and the other is green. Most of the bolts from here on out are 10mm

Wow, nice...I would change front speakers as well while we are at it. This is going to help a lot of people.

And the red one. Please note that there is not much if at all room for adjustment. I guess that is part of the Toyota manufactoring quality. I was impressed with that.

Opps.. sorry.. the speaker needs to come out pretty simple really. There are a few 10mm screws that hold the speaker in and a few connectors.. The plastic vapor barrier needs to come off as well. I left it on just folded the top down and the bottom up.

Just push back gently on the regulator at the same time holding the window once you get it out of the regulator push the front of the window up and out of the door. be gentle if it is hard or is binding your doing something wrong. Do not force the issue. Be gentle. No pics of this as I was more concerned with breaking my glass then getting pics.

The next step is to get the regulator out there are several bolts all of mine had a # "7" on it take them all out but the one that has the oblong hole.
There is one that is partly hidden by the plastic vapor barrier. Do not worry about the regulator being spring loaded or snapping when you get the bolts loose. Mine just sat there. I have pics of each of the bolts but, I think it willbe a waste to show all the pics of all the bolts.

I had a little trouble getting the connector for the window motor disconnected. I had to get a small screw driver to get it to unlatch to the door. I cannot remember if I pushed the screw driver on the door side or the panel side.. Again if you have to force it your doing it wrong back off and re-evaulate it.

Next push the rubber grommet back through the door connector and all. Push up on the regulator and try to collapse it then sneak it back through the hole where the speaker assembly was.
