Do you have the lock cylinder part of the handle out?
Ok, yo have to do steps 6 and 7 to remove the lock cylinder, then you can pull the handle out. I am not sure which part you are on with the instructions.
Do you have the cover off and clip off the rod off?
They are calling it the bracket. These can be tricky
I am assuming you mean the plastic bracket cover.
See the diagram I am sending. You have to remove the plug in the door, then the nut, then the clip on the rod to the latch assembly.
Send me a photo of where you are stuck if you can.
I see the issue now. I was being redirected by my own link but it's letting me in because I have a subscription.
This should help a lot.
Along the edge of the door is another plug, remove it an access the screw that's holding you up.
Well, when you loosen that screw, you then can remove the exterior lock cylinder. Once that is out then you can pull the handle out and towards you, it will release.
This is a little different then your door handle, but the idea is the same. Check it out at about 4 minutes.
Ok, the difference on yours is the bolt on the edge of the door is what holds it in place. Even though the bolt won't come all the way out, you can remove it enough to get that cylinder section out.
