The top slides up, I am sure you took loose the screws for the pull strap.

That is the worse thing with the TCs door panels,  you have to completely disassemble them to take them off!
...and there was light!

You have to pull upward on the door panel.  Just make sure you have all the fasteners out and it should pull right up.

Thank you for the help. I got it back on the rollers to have it stay up but whenever i roll it down it doesnt follow like something is rubbing up against it not letting it go down. Any ideas.

You have to glue it in the mounts. Window weld works very well for this and is available at any auto parts store.
