2012 F25 driver front door removal help

For a 2012 X3 F25 x35i...

I had no problem finding the parts to pop off the front passenger door so I could remove 5 screws and pull the panels and replace speakers, but I can't figure what pops off to reveal the hidden screws on the driver side.

I have the two at the bottom and the one behind the tweeter grill. Everything else seems very well attached, and trying to pry off the leather cushion seems to be breaking plastic welds. I know there must be one or two screws left.

RealOEM has the passenger front diagram, but not one for the driver front. Please tell me the steps to get this off correctly.

Thanks for the info. I tried to pull the door panel the other day and got the bottom two at the light, and thw two behind the door handle cover that slides up. I pulled the panel back but could not get the top away. I assumed it was a clip that wouldn't pop.

Is there a fifth screw behind the tweeter? How do I pull the tweeter cover? Is it the tweeter at the mirror or the speaker grill on the door?

THanks!

Yes! Just pry the corner of the tweeter cover closest to the windshield. Pops right off.
