Mine had vents so i pulled those and took out the mechanism in the bottom of the door and then did everything short of breaking the window to get it out.

Not very hard. Roll the window all the way down. Pull the weather striping around the top and then the squeegee felts (assuming you're replacing those too) Pull the vent glass, should be three screws along the outer edge and two on the door behind the panel, it should pull toward the middle from the top and then lift right out. Then crank the window up enough to get to the two bolts at the bottom edge of the glass. Once those are out, grab the top edge of the glass, it will slide right out (pull up and in a bit so it comes out toward the inside of the Jeep).

Go to the CJ forum and search "Gaucho" I think it's around page 30-40 he does a rebuild of the doors from a YJ and does a step by step break down. I found it easiest to pull all U channel seal in the hoop so I could pull the window vent out. Just becareful it is a kinda violent process getting the vent out. I also left my door on the Jeep and sat on a stool. It was way easier then trying it on a table.

The lock cylinder has a little "C" shaped clip that wedges bewteen it and the door that keeps it wedged in place. It should slide right out if you knock it with a long screw driver and possibly a few taps from a hammer. The mirrors should just be bolted on as far as I know unless you have an after market set up.

Thos are them. There should be a notched shim next to them that the clip fits in. Looks like this You will have to hold the clip back while you push the shim out. If your doors are like mine the clip will snap and it makes dis-assembly that much easier.
