Think you can access it from removing the tweeters only.
I'll send you a link to a pdf copy of the service manual, it shows how to disassemble the trim and a lot more.
Just out grabbing dinner, should be home in 20 minutes.

Each manual serves both WRX and STI.

They can be accessed here: Factory Service Manuals

MY11
MY12
MY13
2008 WRX/STI Manual
2009 WRX/STI Manual

The two links at the bottom are hosted on my Google account, please let me know if you have any issues accessing them at all.

Enjoy!

Yea I noticed ahahha all you have to do is pull them back. But after I removed there isnt much space to access mirror bolts which I likely will have remove whole door panel doesn't seem hard though
