Please help... :*(

I have an 08 ford focus ses. I was opening my door and something internal broke. Now the drivers side handle is limp and wont open. I believe I know how to fix it, if I can just crack the damn thing open!!!

I can NOT get the interior door to pop off. I've looked on youtube and on here. EVERYONE talks about a little tab behind the interior handle that you need to pry off and take off the last screw (there was 1 in the side of the door, 2 on the bottom, 3 in the arm rest, all those are out). But there is NO TAB. Not anywhere. I've pried off the little triangle where the power window adjustment toggle was...There's nothing else I can take off!

Please please please....someone help me.
