^ ^ ^ Yeah - I used that same link for reference and never noticed that weird grey shape. I just used a screwdriver or whatever was handy to hold the door handle up, while I dug those pins out.

Are you just wanting to replace the exterior door pull. The plastic molding you grip with your handle and pull up to open the door?

If you are, nothing could be more simple.

Simply lift the handle and wedge a screwdriver under it to stop it dropping down. Then you pop out the plastic retainer that holds the handle to the mechanism. Once the plastic retainer is popped out, remove the screwdriver and just the handle off. Simple as that.

Refitting is a reversal of same.

There is a video by Richpin on removing the outer door skin. In that video he removes the door handle in the way I just described
