Yea, I have. The snaps you have to just pull out. You'll probably break a few. Once you get the panel off, you'll see the holes where the fasteners go (the ones that broke or fell out). On the backside of the panel the fasteners get attached usually by a 3/4 turn into the hole. To reinstall, the tips get inserted into the holes on the door and you just push them in from the front side of the panel. The shafts are ribbed which is what holds them in place, and also why they break. I was lucky enough to find a store locally that sells them, but they are also available at lots of places online. Just Google "door panel fasteners" and you'll see a bunch of different styles.

Buy the appropriate tool (just ask at your auto parts store) it'll save on the damaged fasteners & possibly the door panel. On my '03 E450 chassis, I didn't have the above mentioned fasteners. I removed all the visible screws & lifted the door panel up to remove. (there was sort of a 'hook' molded into the back of the door panel)
