I have a 99 eclipse and I just took off the interior door panel to gain access to the exterior door handle. Anyway, after you remove the two screws holding the panel on,(the one under the handle you pull to open the door and the one down in the handle to pull the door shut) note to get to the second screw you must remove the little square plastic piece with a screw driver. Next you have to take off the black plastic piece that is around the door handle and lock. To do this you need to pry it up in the front with a screwdriver or something and push forward from the back of the piece. There isn't much holding it in place, just two little lips of plastic. after that there should only be what I think they call pop rivets holding it in place,just work your way around the paneling with a flat head screwdriver or a putty nife and jently pry it loose. I don't think there were any other screws to take out.

You are not required, but you have to. There is a transparent plastic protection behind the panel. If you do not remove the panel if have make holes in order to remove the handle.

How do you change the handle on a 2002 ford explorer on the back hatch?

if its equiped with a door panel then you have to remove it. Once removed, there should be access holes to get to the back of the handle to remove it. the door panel will probably have a few screws in it. There are either clips holding the panel on which you can just pull hard on the panel to remove or there are plastic hooks molded to the panel in which you have to pull up and out to remove the panel. Just pull the panel up a little and peek in to see whats holding it on. Once removed there should be access holes all over the place to remove the handle.
