Why would you want to remove the door handle?I see the quote is 3 plus years old but wanted to share what I learned last night when replacing my drivers door window regulator. Like jongun78, I was puzzled on how to remove the inside door handle assembly from the door frame. You can Pull & Wiggle & Snap the assembly off the door and you might or might not break it in the process. I found a smarter method. After the interior door panel has been removed... Using a medium/heavy duty hemostat, I was able to reach into the slot where the window glass slides into and Pinch the plastic tab/prong that is securing the door handle onto the door. Once the prong was squeezed by the hemostat, I Pulled, Wiggled, Snapped the handle assembly off of the door frame. If that one little plastic prong gets broken your screwed.
Thank you to the OP for this how-to thread. I also used the link below to help me learn how to do this job. This was my first time doing a window regulator. After a month of driving with a broken window regulator, I am so happy to have my power window working again.
I bought a XW4Z-54234A44-AA "spacer" in advance but oddly never saw where it was used. Never really looked for it. Strange. Realized
I missed or forgot about it only after the job was done.
