Default 05 Malibu Door Panel Removal

I'm trying to remove the passenger side door panel on my 2005 Malibu Maxx. I've pulled all the clips and found the two bolts under the door handle but the panel seems to be held in place by the hard plastic trim around the chrome door opener/release lever. Anyone have any ideas?[:-]
