You have to take the door panel off.I believe it is riveted on.you are probably gonna have to drill them out. Unhook the bar that is attached to it then it should come right out.it is always a good idea to put masking tape on the paint around the door handle so you don't scratch the paint when pulling it out.lrs has steel replacements that are stronger than the factory one.they come in chrome and black for really cheap.they will come with new rivets also.you need a pretty big rivet gun to use them.a lot of guys just use a couple 1/4" bolts with lock nuts.rest of the process is reverse.

My door panel was already off when I did mine.it just seems like it would be easier off but cool.
