There are two clips in in the handle lever. One clip is above and one below. Slide a flatheaded screwdriver between the handle and the casing to pop the casing loose. You have to do this on the top and bottom. Once the casing is loose you can take that off and the door should come undone.

I have the same problem on a Toyota Tercel 1997. I am trying to remove the door panel with the door closed (I can not open the door because the door knob is stuck in the lock position). I think I will have to cut through the panel. Have you found something ? My e-mail is email@example.com

My 96 Camry LE has 9 attachments that are visible. Some have plastic caps covering the screws; others do not. There are screws at the door handle, at the forward portion(with covers) when the door is open and the back edge (small covers). As I recall, there are several friction type fasteners around the perimiter of the panel that can be removed by prying carefully away from the metal portion of the door to free up the trim panel. Once these are loose, the trim around the inside door release handle (the one you pull to open the door) can be pryed in a backward motion. Then the entire panel can be removed by pulling upward and backward at the same time (it easier to do this with the window down). Then it is a matter of disconnecting the wires attached to the various controls for the electric windows and door locks to free up the panel itself. There is probably a plastic skin covering the metal portion of the door. Carefully pull that away to expose the inner workings of the door latch mechanisim. The rest of the procedure should become easy to figure out. I have not removed the exterior door handle itself; but it is a simple mechanism as I recall. Best of luck to you.

SOURCE: remove door panel
Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws
that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by
snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then
disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place
by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try
to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from
tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the
panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.

There are some hidden screws around the door handle but you get under the panel and yank hard to pop the fasteners. Also remove the black piece behind the mirror. Alot of times it is seperate. 3 screws behind that and the connector and you are done.
