HB 2008: How to remove whole front door?

Is there a guide here on how to remove (and replace) a whole front door, not only the panel?

I got a hit and run while the car was parked a few years ago and the driver's door is badly indented. I managed to replace the electric mirror, but the door is still damaged.

I could buy a door from a scrap yard and replace it. I don't mind if the color is different; I'm a fan of Better Call Saul .

How hard is it?

It's relatively easy to remove a front door. There's only 4 bolts holding the door to the two hinges, or you can remove 4 bolts holding the hinges with the door to the car. Putting the door back on the car is the hard part as aligning the door properly is a time consuming process of minor adjustments.

An example of those "minor adjustments" from Dacia factory...

For the rear door the guy was quite gentle but for the front door... I would probably hesitate to do this to my car.
