It's a process with many steps and hard to explain. Your best bet is to spend the $125 for the Service Manual and follow the instructions. You could always have the dealer do it as well, but that would likely be even more. To recoup your cost, you should easily be able to sell the Service Manual afterwards.

It's not bad, remove door panel, cut film back and there is one 10 or 12mm bolt(cant remember) that holds the part of the handle on that doesn't pull out. If you're going to ask how to get door panel off and can't figure it out yourself, you probably shouldn't attempt the handle. If you do though, remove that one bolt and pop the smaller piece off then pull out on the handle and pull it to the rear of the car and it will come out.

It takes about 10-15 minutes per side once you know what you are doing. It's fairly easy, BUT there are many things to break... best go slowly and follow the manual
