I've got a 1997 Sierra GMC 1500. Take the 2 screws out of the handle that you use to close the door with. Don't try to take the handle off because there is a hidden screw that needs to be removed from the inside of the panel. I tried to remove it and broke the inner screw anchor. Then remove the trim piece around the handle. There are four little lock clips at 12:00, 3:00, 6:00, and 9:00. Consider them to be in a circle. They have locking barbs that lock toward the inside of the circle. Take a flat screwdriver and pry towards the outside of this circle. The 3:00 on the left door and the 9;00 on the right door can't be pried but come out once you have the other three loose. The little corner trim on the upper inside of the door has one nylon pin like the door panel itself that you can pop out with a flat screwdriver or whatever. It resists force so give it a little. Around the periphery of the panel there will be 9 barbed nylon pins that take a little force, as well, to dislodge; 4 on the bottom, 3 on the hinge side, and 2 on the outer edge. Then using the palm of your hand drive the panel upward by making contact with the protruding portion of the door panel just below the handle you use to close the door.
RP....My 1997 Sierra GMC 1500 was slightly different then above. Instead of metal clips at the 4 directions, mine had plastic pins. I am not sure you will know which kind of mounting method was done to your vehicle until you take the flat head screw driver and wedge it in. My recommendation would be to wedge in the flat tip screw driver on the left side of the door as you were facing the Drivers side door from the inside(The opposite for the passengers side door) and begin the process of opening up the door. If you noticed plastic pins, you will know that you have my style door.
Again...Once you know you have this style door you must understand that the inside panel rests over the lip of the window so you will need to wedge the bottom, the left and the right sides and then bend the panel up to remove it from the lip of the window.
Also note that there is a plastic piece above the panel near the inside of the window that will need to be removed as well as the panel around the inside door handle.
Once the panel is removed you will need to removed, you will notice a metal plate encompassing the inside of where the door panel was. You will need to partially remove this panel to expose the door handle mechanism. I remove the top 6 hex screws which gave me access to the full mechanism.
The door handle mechanism is part of the lock mechanism so the lock and the door pin will need to be removed from the plastic piece that is the door handle. My plastic piece had a metal rivet in the structure to attach it to the metal piece. I used a Drimel tool to remove the pin. Once that and the door pin and lock pin were removed, the plastic piece did slide out. I then went to Cheker Auto and purchased a replacement plastic door piece. I slid the door pin and the lock pin back into the new plastic piece and mounted it back into the door. From there I reversed the process of mounting the door back together.

Sierra LaMar was born on 1996-10-19.
there are two 10mm bolts, one on the outside rim of the door next to handle; the other is on the inside. to get to inside one you have to remove door panel and the inside door panel. There are several bolts there as well. The door handle bolt is kind of hidden but its behind the window rail remove it and the linkage clips after pulling the handle out of the door. it maybe easier to replace the door locking clip after reinserting handle back into door. And while your in there it is a good idea to lube everything with a dry lithium grease so dirt and crude don't build up on them as much and everything runs smooth. Good luck.
Yours probably has the same problem as mine...& that is the door handle has broken off inside. Mine has 2 broken tangs & so it will not work but it works inside.
You will probably have to remove the whole inside door panel in order to remove the handle. The panels are usually held in place with screws or plastic clips. A Haynes Manual might be helpful.
it is inside of gas tank which has to be pulled, out, the rear seat has to removed also

Assuming you are referring to the outer door handle, remove the inner door panel and look at the back of the handle. You will see a couple of steel rods attached to the handle, remove these(they just unclip)and move them out of your way. You should be able to see a couple of small nuts holding the handle to the door. Remove these and the handle can be pulled out of the door from the outside.
