When I try to follow the instructions above it seems as if the "carbon fibre" piece (where the chrome opening part for the door ) is stuck and wont allow for the door panel to lift upwards. Does anyone know how to proceed beyond this part when removing the door panels? I don't dare to proceed in case I muck up something it seems really stuck.
I am in the process of installing a new sound system and documenting it with pix but I am stuck here near the final moment and it is very frustrating having ripped out the rear interior for rear speakers / sub woofer / CD changer and now have the door speakers left.
I love to hear your advice on these door panels.

EXCELLENT instructions above! I had been putting off pulling the drivers side door panel but it is amazingly easy. The other day I pulled the door closed and about half of the door panel came off in my hand. Long story short someone had put in three #12 screws where they should have used #14's. I put in the proper screws, used some Liquid Nails on the seperated door panels and it looks new and is as solid as a rock. Thanks Bazzle!

Does anyone know the exact part numbers for the parts shown in picture P1010047 (Medium).JPG? I am referring specifically to the plastic handles (face and back) that together form the actual handle you use to pull the door when you are inside the car (not the shiny little handle you use to open the door). I tried looking for the parts using keywords like "grab handle", "pull handle", "door grab", etc and couldn't find the part numbers. The dealer knows exactly what part I am talking about but he won't give me the part number - he wants me to order from him instead of looking for the part online, which is exactly what I am planning on doing...

A few comments on door lock removal - later SLKs
It's great to have this forum as a resource.
I just replaced my driver side door lock and I couldn't have done it without Bazzle's outstanding description and pictures.
My car is a 2002 and there is a major difference to the earlier SLKs in respect of the doors.
The MB manual and Bazzle both specify the need to remove the window guide in order to remove the lock.
On my car the window guide isn't there ! Trust me, I looked for it. I suspect that the later R170 models have a different power window mechanism.
What I ended up doing was as follows:
The lock has a clip on plastic dust cover: by removing the dust cover from the lock mechanism whilst still in the door I managed to get the separate parts out without removing the power window hardware. Similarly I unclipped the dust cover from the new lock and managed to squeeze the 2 pieces into the cavity before re-assembling them inside the door.
Also not mentioned in the forgoing description is the wiring connector for the lock limit switch - again I suspect this was added to later R170s. This connector latches into the socket on the lock.
Once again, thanks to Bazzle.
