To change an exterior door handle on a 92 Mustang, you'll need to take the interior door panel off, the only way to reach it is behind the interior door panel. Make sure the window is rolled all the way up, because if it is down, it's impossible to get to. The only thing I'm not sure of, is I don't know if Ford riveted or bolted in the handles from the factory. Luckily when I changed mine, they were bolted in. After you remove the interior panel, you'll have to pull the post out of the clip that connects the door handle to the latch. Don't pull the post out of the clip at the latch, pull the post out of the clip up at the handle. Then, if it is bolted in, remove 2 nuts that hold the handle in place. If the handle is riveted in, you're going to have to attempt to drill out the rivets. After that is done, remove the handle, install the new one. Your new handles will be a bolt in. So, just tighten the nuts on the bolts, replace the post into the clip at the door handle, install the door panel and you're done!
