    I am by NO MEANS an expert on 1st gens...but I would assume it'd be easier to just take the whole door panel off and reapholster from there. If it does come off in one piece, at least you'll know for the other side. I don't have any links for you either. All I have is my general opinion.

    If the black part is glued down, I'm guessing the only way to get it off is to rip it off and then reglue it..
