this is how you remove the door panel when it says carefully release the 10 clips they mean put a good flat tool like a screw driver between the panel and the door and lightly apply pressure to push the panel towards you while pulling and those self clips should release.one that panel is off looking at this other picture of the outer door handle make sure the rod is still connected to the handle back side lever if it is then make sure the bottom of that rod is connected to the latch. Usually the rod falls off or one of the clips that hold the rod has popped off or broken or the handle is bad.it should be very visual what is wrong once the door panel is off and you can visually see the handle and the rod

 

  1. Remove 2 screws securing hand rail to door.

    what about the airbag? don't sweat it?

    Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.
    just make sure you disconnect the battery to disarm it and you should be fine
    Customer: replied 1 year ago.

    and it says new clips, no way to reuse? thanks for the details

    Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.
    I always reuse them if any get broken or loose it may be a good idea to replace them but usually you can reuse everything if you take your time removing them
