I am trying to remove the outside door panel to replace door locks. The inside panel is already off. I have removed all the screw I could see, but feels like resistance is in the door handle and on the top of the panel by the window. Any help?

Looks like you don;t need to remove the outer skin if you can get the clip off the lock. Some light reading for you

This can help.

There are clips that are holding the skins to the door frame at the bottom. In order to see them you will need to be under the door. I just popped them off and replaced them with new ones from the auto parts store. Not expensive at all.

Also if you did not remove the molding, you will also need to do that. There are two screws that hold the middle of the skin to the frame there also.

That should be it if you removed the other screws from the inside.

Good luck, you might want to clean up the inside while you are there and also tape up the edges in order not to damage the paint.
Just an FYI.

you don't need to remove the door panel to remove the locks. I know; i've done it. i used a wire cutter to get the old rusted clip off.
