I just did the drivers door on a 98 Accord EX. Got the panel off and the 10mm bolts out ok but couldn't get the handle off. After another trip to the dealership I figured it out.
There is a clip that holds the lock cylinder in place on the schematic. But it looks like you cannot get to it until the handle is out. Wrong. There is a space in the bracket under the lock cylinder to hook the clip and pull it straight down. You can't see it very well, a mirror helps, but it is there and once you have it out the lock cylinder comes out toward you. Once the lock is out the ext. handle comes free.
Hope this helps.
