This is a lot easier than you might think.First unscrew the two screws right next to the handle. Your door panels actually pop off. Take a flat head screw driver and wedge it in between the door and the panel, slowly pry the panel off. The panel is kept on by little wedges. When you have it nearly removed,the part by the top of the window will still be stuck, slowly push it upward and slide it off. Make sure to not tear off the window swith;It comes off as well, just slide it through the whole panel.When everything is off I think there are like 2 screws that hold the handle on. Unscrew those and then there is a little rod on the back side of the handle slide it off, and slip the new one on.When putting the panel back on it takes a little force, but make sure that the wedges are finding there way into the panel slots. Good luck
