That's a good idea! This last step in reassembly often causes grief. Follow
Chi's advice and whatever you do, do NOT insert that screw into the inside
door-handle trim until *after* the trim piece is firmly pushed in place.
Pushing the trim into place with the screw already inserted  can cause the
plastic tab inside the door panel to break off, and  this leaves you  with
no way to keep the trim anchored (screwed) in place. You will be screwed,
instead.  BTDT :-(
