Default Proper way of taking of?/ and passenger fender issue

Hey guys was wondering how or what is the proper way of taking off your door panel? I'm getting a leak in my car and I need to determine were it is so I'm going to that aread first. But I don't want to break any clips or anything, I mean if I did I did I can just go and get new ones from autozone right?

Also so I didn't post 2 threads, I noticed today when I was looking at my car from the front view my passenger side front fender is popped up just a little bit on the corner of it were its by the headlight. I looked at my other one to see if it was the same but nope, the other is leveled with the hood. Now I'll post pics of it in just a second ( gotta run out and take them ) but how will I go about fixing that? Lightly tap it with a mallet?

This is a link on how to remove the door panel

Is the fender too high, or is the hood too low? If the hood is too low, open the hood, and in the front corners you'll see some rubber/plastic supports that can be adjusted up and down to align the hood properly. Move it a little at a time, and don't over-do, or you could have problems getting the hood open.
