By “door panels”, do you mean the interior trim panels? If so, this area is one of Alfa’s least impressive pieces of engineering.

First, unscrew the plastic top of the lock button. After that, you can carefully wiggle out the plastic trim that surrounds it.

Then, remove the arm rests. There are two, large screws that insert at the bottom of the rest, tilting slightly upward to screw into nylon blocks that are themselves fitted into the steel, inner door panel. There is also a “grub screw” at the upper, forward tip of the arm rest. It might be a screw head or a allen-head, depending upon previous sins.

After the arm rest, you can remove the door handle. I think it is held in place by an allen-head bolt.

Then, there are trim screws around the edge of the door trim panel.

After they are done, the panel should slide out downward and out.

The above is from a five-year old memory, so be alert for errors and omissions.

It might not be necessary to remove the lock button and trim to remove the trim panel. Memory is vague.
