Door Lock Actuator, CL500

Hi all, I want to change the door lock actuator on my 2001 CL500. The reason: the door glass, stops 1/16 - 1/8, from closing. I did all the checks I found on this forum and other MB forums, door glass still stops just short of closing completely. With that said, changing the actuator seems to be my only option, I am open to any and all ideas. Can someone provide directions/instructions on taking the door panel apart to change the actuator. I tried once and the panel was close to coming off but something was stuck or holding the panel on. I did not want to damage the panel or something underneath panel that I could not see. Once panel is off, I think the actuator should be easy enough to remove/replace.

This video might help. It's for a S class vs a CL but it's probably very similar and will I hope help.
