If you are trying to get the door panel off, the easiest way is to just leave the door pull on the door and just remove the panel (I did this yesterday to fix a rattle in my passenger door). Once you get the door panel loose (with the door handle still attached to it), reach around the back, unplug the door lock switch. Here you have the choice to either pull the door lock switch out of the door (I'd recommend it), or try popping the door handle assembly out with it still in place (risks pulling the back plate of the switch assembly). Once you've decided what to do there, you can pop the door handle assembly out of the panel, and slide it through the door panel, freeing the panel from the car. I hope this helps.
