Hi.
You do NOT have to remove the whole door panel.

There is a small phillips screw holding the knuckle guard behind your door handle.

Remove that and you can lift the door-middle insert- to inspect. You can lift it up gently.

Funny-I was thinking about this today!- My 2 windows are a bit flappy / loose in mid raise.

I figure like my other car I would remove the door inserts and tighten the plastic guides with an allen wrench.

All 928's eventually have this problem.

Just pull wicked hard, it will unsnap.. KIDDING.
remove the plastic plate behind the door handle (phillips screw)
remove the center decorative panel (the bottom has tabs. The top has panel fasteners inbedded that need to be pulled out from their receptical. then it can be lifted up.
remove the arm rest. pretty sure there are 5 bolts. 2 in the pocket,2 under the center panel, and one in the front in the air inlet to door. You may have to undo you switches when you do this too
remove the center of the door locking knob.(pry out) unbolt the knob, unscrew the plastic piece behind the knob.
The panel is held on with fasteners like the center piece, work you way around and pull them out.
It may be a good idea to buy a tool to pluck out the fasteners. if you rely only on the panel to pull them out sometime the rip out of the panel and not the door. There may be some other things I forgot off the top of my head but that's most of it

to follow on remove the 2 screws on the harness plate sheath cover at the front edge of the door panel
and their may be a few screws along the bottom edge of the door panel.

You can replace the 2 plastic window guides they are pretty cheap but will restore a solid window function.
Use a shower curtain plastic and Weldwood brush on adhesive to recover the door prior to installing the door panel,
the dollar store sells great clear curtains for this job, yep they cost 1.00
