The handle is attached with two screws. The top screw is located on the inside of the door and is visible and unobstructed. The bottom screw however, is not visible, but is almost directly below the top screw. It is located behind a 1/2 inch wide plastic retainer that runs around the inside of the door. Simply pry the retainer from the inside of the door enough to access the screw. This would be the lower left corner of the retainer when looking at it from the inside of the door. I used a kitchen knife to pry the retainer loose and a phillips screw driver to remove the screws. The process is simple and takes about five minutes.
