You need to pull the door panel and confirm. Expect you will find a diagram showing fasteners in the Bentley. Check with a dealer because there may be an updated part called for. If you wish to DIY, make it possible by buying the Bentley first. Now you are equipped with the best reference possible. If you add the Haynes Manual and read what both say for a particular procedure, you will attack the job with the confidence of knowing what to do.

This whole list is not a DIY substitute for the manuals, it is an augmentation only. You will pay back the cost of all your tools and manuals a 100 times if you DIY and get results, rather than $1000's of dollars of hired pro labor.
