Don't-Don't just pull on it. Use a long screwdriver or some type of a
long, little pry bar to undo each and every clip. One at a time. Do it
slowly. Start at the front top by the window crank. After you have
the three at the front done work your way back, start with the top.
After you get the top undone you can work on the bottom.
To put it back on, put some grease on each and every clip, and each
and every hole, don't-don't slam your hand into the door panel. Use
gentle force to put in each and every clip. Use a towel if you have to
to push the clips back in. BE GENTEL, THEY ARE 30 YEARS OLD!!

You can get a "panel remover tool" from any of the Mustang parts houses for about $5. A very cheesy looking thing, but works fantastic. It's very wide, and has a grove in it that you slide the clips into then pop them out. It works great, because the width of it spreads the load out on the panel and really helps prevent damage to the panels.

I only got one because I had a credit I needed to use up at Sacramento Mustang, and was down to about $5, so said, oh, what the hell ... give me one of those dumb things. That tool has really impressed me. One of the best $5 I ever spent.

If you always do what you've always done,
You'll always get what you've always got
