I'm no expert but Alfaitalia is right in that the window motor , ECU for the window control and the speaker does bolt to the steel panel. The only reason I know is that having had my window replaced by Autoglass last week, they left a lot of glass in the bottom of the door as they couldn't be bothered taking the steel panel off to vac it out properly. (I ended up leaving the panel in, taking the speaker out and then 2 hours of gently raking the glass to the speaker aperture to vac it out. The steel panel is sealed in to keep it water tight so If you do take it out you will need to re seal it otherwise you will have wet carpets) With the door trim off you should be able to see the cable. If its not there then it has snapped or at least slipped into the door cavity behind the panel. If it is there then with a bit of effort you should be able to pull on the cable using your fingers and open the door. If this works it has just become detached from the door handle

Hope this helps
