How to remove door handle?

I'm gonna attempt my first vinyl wrap DIY and can't find a thread on how to remove the door handles. I see a lot of people that did a vinyl wrap remove the door handles for easy wrap... Anybody have a link? I searched here and found nothing.

Not sure if door panel needs to be removed...

Thanks.

Door Handle is extremely easy to remove. Open door and look for rubber trim located in jamb on door at same elevation as handle. remove rubber by gently pulling away from door with just your hand. Behind the rubber are two holes. One hole has a hex head (6mm maybe?) bold that secures the handle. Loosen it. It doesn't come out of the hole though by design. Pull lock out then you can remove handle. Led light needs to be unhooked before handle comes out too. Lastly remove handle electric cable and you done. It's literally a 5 minute job.

Now putting it back on is the tricky part. Take your time and try aligning the LEDs correctly. Its not as easy as taking them off.
