The "yoke" around the inside of the door came off easily by pushing the clips to release it. However, getting the inner door panel off of the clips was harder. I found that if I took the plastic vent off, I could then take the door off the hinges and work on it on a flat surface--this made the job much easier. With the inner door panel off, the handle screws are now able to be removed and the new handle installed. With the door still on a flat surface, reinstall the inner door panel.
