The inside door trim is easily removed by inserting the handle of a small spoon at the space at the door hinge and then sliding it alone to top to remove the plastic clips. The outside door panel is more intense. You will be able to see the plastic clips that hold the plastic panel to the door and will be able to force the clips away from the metal door frame. However there are locating pins that stick through the metal door. These may have swollen because of heat, use long nose pliers to squeeze and push through the metal door, May take 2 people, 1 to release the clips the other to push the locating pins through the metal frame. With the front pane off there are 4 screws that hold the handle to the front panel.
