How do I remove front door panel on a 1996 Buick LeSabre?

On my 97 leSabre custom with power locks and windows, I needed to replace the driver’s outside mirror. This meant that I had to take the door apart. I found two T25 Torx screws, one holding in the panel around the door handle and power lock buttons, and another on the rear edge of the door. After removing these, I removed the small lock panel, unplugged it, and set it aside. Next, I removed the reflector from the rear edge of the door. It is pressed in with locking clips on the top and bottom. In some models, it is also illuminated, but not in mine. In theory, pushing a screwdriver in both the top and bottom will push the clips in and let you wiggle it out. To figure this out, I had to break the reflector off the rest to get to the clips, then unlatch the clips and pry the connector out. I’ll glue the reflector back on and it will look just as good as new. Behind this reflector is a bolt that holds the center of the door panel to the door. A 10mm socket on a 3/8 ratchet fit in and back
