With a tweeker screwdriver pry up the chrome trim on the handle - usually
has a spot of black adhesive gunk to help hpld it down. The trim piece clips
in at both ends of the handle. One screw there. Open the door and peel back
the oval rubber grommet at handle level - two screws there to hold it in
place in the end. If yer not carefull, one or both will fall down inside the
door... Sigh...
