interior door panels on 52' chevy bel air deluxe

Im having trouble removing the side panels from the doors and back seat area due to them being in poor condition(age), without destroying them. I found a couple screws to remove, but am not finding screws on door handles and/or clips on the panels. If I pull too hard it seems as though the panels will tear...HELP!!!! MY EMAIL IS (UPERCASE) dlewis8@NEB.RR.COM. THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR HELP. I ALSO HAVE ALL THE SIDE TRIM I WILL NOT BE USEING most in pretty good shape, as well as 1 original hub cap and 2 ofthe big curved chrome pieces that go on the front of the rear fenders(dont know what they are called), I would like to trade for a grill that would work.

you need a window crank remover and slide it in front of the gaurd plate, if you push back on the spring, you can see the groove in where it goes, then once you have it in the groove, spin it until you feel it catch, give it a couple rapps with a hammer ( lightly ) then turn it some more, they should come free. that's how I got them off my '51 Chevy and on the top window trim, you need to remove the 4 screws from the bottom, the window trim clamps the door panals in place on the top. As for grille's you have 2 choices that bolt in, a '51 Grille or a '52 Grille, the '51 is toothless unlike your '52 which has grille teeth.
