IIRC, it's done from the inside of the door skin.

meaning that id have to take off the door panels and all the window stuff, and pop it off? do you by chance know whats holding it on? like is it screwed on or what

Pretty sure they are screwed/bolted on from the inside of the door skin, so yes doorpanels etc off to do the job.

Two 10mm nuts on the inside. For sure you will have to take the interior door panels off. You may be able to get at the nuts with a ratcheting box end wrench without taking the windows and such out, but it will be tight.
