carefully use a screwdriver or chisel to pry the interior panel off of the door...it's thin, like an upholstered piece of hard board, held on by plastic ribbed push-studs, every so often. Those studs can be pryed out and pushed in to reinstall many times if you're careful but I did manage to break one on my truck. Of course there is also a couple of screws near the door handle as I recall but they are visible. A small piece of triangular shaped plastic must also be popped / pryed off of the forward window area. I'm drinking right now, but I think you may have to drill out a rivet to remove the old handle assembly but it is really easy, just pick a drill bit about the same diameter as the rivet and drill it till it falls apart. Install the new assembly with a pop rivet of your own. good luck

If you have the panel off, just look up at were the outside door handle is mounted. You need to unbolt the rest of what is left....usually a metric fastner. Next, there should be 2 small access holes, probably covered by plastic sheeting. These holes are for the socket to reach them. There are a few clips that need to be popped loose from the rods but take your time and use a thin flat tipped screwdriver. And when you go to reinstall the new handle, you'll have to manipulate the handle into the door skin or the "hole" where the door handle goes.
Just take your time and you can do this.

There are plastic clips that hold the door panel inplace .. First look for any hidden screws near the door handle . there might be a little plastic cover that you need to remove with a small screw driver to find the screws.. look under the handle also to see if there are any hidden screws . next take a flat blade screw driver and start at the bottom corner and try gently prying the door panel off . try to stay close to the plastic clips not to damage them by prying real hard .. once you have snapped them loose all the way around .. lift up on the door panel to remove it from around the window lip and out it should come.. holler if you have any problems.. usually The mirrors on the chevys are up above the panel and there is a triangle plastic cover over it on the inside .. it will pry off also gently and there are 3 nuts there that need to be removed .. use caution these fall behind the door panel ... holler if you need more.

the linkage behind the handle either the retaining clip broke or popped off need to remove the door panel to check and fix
