Here is what you are going to have to do to gain access to the handle. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I omitted the door panel info as it sounds as though you already have it off.

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Lower the window.
  • Remove the trim panel.
  • Remove the water deflector.
  • Carefully pry out the retainer clips in order to remove the speaker, as necessary.
