Question about 1996 Chevrolet Suburban
You have to get the door panel off first. There are hidden screws in and under the door handle. Then you have to take a screwdriver or hard flat tool and go around the inside of the door panel and pop out all the plastic clips that hole the panel in. Onced panel removed, take off plactic/paper on inside of toor. Two small bolts in handle. 10mm. Plastic clip on rod connected to door handle inside door need to be popped or disconected from rod. Plactic clip slides then rod pops out from inside door handle. Reverse procedure to reinstall new door hanle. Be patient. Sounds like a lot of work but is fairly easy. Try to do in 20 degree weather. It sucks. Have fun...

Start by getting some Replacement door Clips for your Truck. You will need them!Got a 95' Silverado also. This happens from time to time. Start at the Bottom of the Door Panel and Loosen. Remove the Screws from the Top Panel. The Panel will Probably not come all the Way off so, You will need to work under it. That Handle is just Pinned. Once you get up to it Just remove the Pin.

The trick is that there is a small clip holding the inside handle in place. Push the panel in and grab it with small needle nose or forceps.
Then remove all the interior panels.
There are seven torx screws holding the intern latch into the door frame, and three interconnecting bars between the outer and inner inner handles.
Once you have the ability to move the inner assemble around you can get to the two metric nuts holding the exterior handle.
The lock assembly is removed by depressing the metal latch on the bottom of the handle assemble after the handle is fully removed.
Reverse and replace and that's it. (don't for get to have extra plastic door panel clips as they will break as you remove the interior panels)
Overall - I would suggest to just take it to the dealer or to a body shop. I'm told they would do it for about $75. I took about 2 hrs to do this and if you are even a bit shaky and drop anything into the door, it is game over. Next time I will do the dealer thing.

You need to open the door to remove the handle, ask a locksmith to open it with a 'slim jim' then once it is open you can remove the broken handle assembly. Once removed you can see what you need to replace.

If you look at those rods, you will see a plastic connector on the end. If you feel around that connector you will notice one side is open. You just push that and once it is unsnapped from the rod, the rod comes out. If you need any further info please leave a comment and I will be glad to help.
