Removing inside door handle

I need to remove the inside door panel on my Hyundai accent 03 in order to replace the exterior door handle. What's holding me up is the inside door/lock handle. Although I've removed the single screw in the middle of the plastic cover I still cannot remove the it in order to get the panel off. It seems that the whole lock/opening mechanism is holding the cover to the panel.
Note: I did remove the two screws from the door handle and around the bottom of the panel as well as the rubber seal on the top of the panel. The whole panel is loose except around the interior door/lock opener.

    Thank you for your reply. Actually I found that the interior lock/handle which I was having a hard time loosening from the panel needs to be slid forward (toward the steering wheel) in order to come loose. That was the last thing holding the panel on. I did note the plastic hooks that clamp to the top of the door so that the panel needs to be slid upward to come off.

    Now that I know I can get behind the panel I'm waiting for the replacement handle to come before moving forward. Thanks again for the help

The control panels are often held in place by either spring tensioners or some built into the plastic frame of the panel and can be pried up and out. They pretty much depend on gravity to keep it in place.
Once free of the panel, turning it may allow it to be passed through the hole in which it normally resides.
I would try first to pry with an old credit or bank card before resorting to metal tools.

1999 Hyundia accent door handles won't work


Go to ebay I bought two new outer handles and two inners for my '97 accent. They are five bucks a piece you can't beat it and free shipping. Take the inner panel apart if you're going to change them yourself. You have the mirror guard that pops right off with a flathead screwdriver, then unscrew every philips-head bolt on the panel there should be roughly four screws. Then once you remove the panel, two 10 mm bolts for the handle which are inside the door are what hold the handle on.

Removing 2004 hyundai accent door panels


STOP!!! there is no need to break the inner door handle!!! The inner door handle is secured in place with three prongs yes, but they do not need to be broken to remove it. They are secured by inserting them into place and sliding back. To remove simply slide forward and pull out.
This takes some wiggling but it will come eventually. also take note that this should be done after removing all screws and loosening and unhooking the door panel itself. To get the panel off around the inner handle, turn the panel 90deg and slide the handle back through its opening.
Good Luck
