[DML] Window/Door panel access?

Well, after being stored for the winter & spring, it's time to get my D 
on the road for another sumer, before I sell it in the fall or next 
spring.  A little careful prepping, oil change and she started up right 
away and drives wonderfully... making it's case for me to hang on to it 
a while longer...  ;-)

Anyhow, I noticed that both windows were inoperable, and after a light 
rap on the interior door panel, the passenger window came back to life & 
works fine now.  The driver's side does not move.  I hear a faint 
"clicking" coming from inside the door when I press the switch, but no 
window operation.  Swapped the switches, same thing.  Checked the fuses, 
all OK.  Any tips would be most welcome.

My main question is, though:  how do I remove the interior door 
trim/panel with the window up?  I have successfully removed it to 
upgrade the lock  solenoids, following the instructions I've read from 
the list here about popping the fir-tree connectors when the window is 
down, etc.  But how can I safely remove the panel when the widow is up?  
Car I get a screwdriver or something in there to pry it up?  Of course, 
I don't want break anything if I force something that should not be 
forced.  Any BTDT & tips are very much appreciated in advance...
