Remove Front Door Panel/Replace Speakers

Hello All,
I feel defeated, but I don't want to break anything. I've searched, read, researched, and watched videos but I can't find what I need to remove the front door panel on a 2008 SE 4-door.

I'm trying to replace the front door speakers (5x7) but the door panel is hanging on by one last anchor point. Something is still attached at the inside door handle & power lock switch towards the top of the panel. I have the mirror cover off, actually everything seems to be detached but the door handle.

I do not have any cosmetic plugs to pop out for screw access at the inside door handle plate. I can get a picture if it helps. Does anyone know the trick for a 2008 SE with power locks/windows? Does the handle/lock plate pop out? Seems like I'll break it if I pry harder??

Many thanks to anyone with some advice.

Got it.
Yes, the large backplate directly behind the door handle pops out, slightly open the inside door handle to work it out. Then you'll find one last Torx screw. Panel is off after disconnecting power attachments. Door handle "box" rotates through the opening to remove panel.
