I removed the plastic perimeter molding from inside of door.You can carefully pry it loose with a narrow putty knife. the door handle screws are located directly behind were the handle attached to the outside of the door. I found that a #2 phillip head screwdriver tip with a large handle for good torque and grip works best however the old plastic post inside the face of the door were turning along with the screws from the opposite side. I used a needle nose plyers to hold onto the plastic barrels in the outside of the door while turning the phillips head screwdriver on the inside at the same time. I found this to be somewhat difficult.You must achieve a good bite with the pliers!
