You need to squeeze yer a$$ back there inside and disassemble all the internal plastic - most of it should be phillips screws and snap togethers. After the panel is off you find the rod going from the handle down to the latch and pull up on it. Replacement of the handle is a metter of a plastic clip and two small nuts. Good Luck
