Its easy....

Remove door panels. Peel away plastic covering thats glued to metal...

Reach in there with a small 1/4" drive socket, and get the 2 small nuts removed...

The hard part is removing the bar from the handle without breaking the small clips..But you can replace the clips...

Use a flathead screwdriver and wedge it between bar and door handle, and twist to pry apart....

If they are turbo door handles I can come and remove them and replace them with normal door handles. The normal ones will be easier to replace in the future. :D

Agree with Preludedue.  It's not that hard, just be careful with that plastic clip/tab.  Preludedude mentioned. It can be a pain.  Its easier to get it off than it is to get it back on.
