If its anything like the 2002 model,

then you need some various torx drivers......(here on eBay)

Pop the cover off the interior handle (the handle is in 2 parts that clip together), this will reveal 2 torx headed screws
There are 2 small torx screws on the outside edge of the plastic door cover. The rest of the door card is held by plastic clips that are hidden from view and just need a good pull to release them. Invariably some of them will break, but replacements are cheap (eBay). It is worth having some of them to hand before you start the job to make it go back together a bit more smoothly.




The door latch stays attached to the door.

I have got the doorpanel off now. Instead of two screws under the handle, my 2008 C3 hd only one screw at the bottom of the plastic handle. A bit hard to see at first. Broke one of the doorclips as well. Could have been of better quality.
Now I still have to find what's wrong with the powerwindow and -mirrors. There is a live current in the cables. So that is not the problem. Maybe the switch itself? Have to soldier on.
