Removing Interior Door Handles?

Hello,

Does anyone know how to remove the interior door handles? Does the entire door panel have to come off? I am replacing the door handles with custom carbon fiber.

Thanks!

Yes, but it should be easy with trim tools

It's really not as hard as it seems to remove the door panels.

The most annoying part of removing the door panel is the likelihood that you will break the clips that hold the long trim strip.

Figured I would show you all a pic of my door handles. Custom hand laid, real 1x1 weave.
