Remove the screw that secures the pull handles, then use a thin device between the door panel and the metal frame. slid until you are close to a pin and then apply outward pressure.
Best to start at he bottom or lower outer edge...once the bottom and sides are loose, lift the panel verticaly to release top edge...
You will have to remove the inside door panel, by useing a large flat head screwdriver, gently pry the snapins out. The bolts that hold the outside door handle is acceable from there, unscrew these bolts and Remove the plastic retainer on the arm from the door handle and its out.
You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle,
arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the
panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want
to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal
(can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to
access everything inside the door
I had to do the same hting for my 2001 vitara
for me i had to do it from the inside of the car
i had to take of the entire panel under the rear window which was pretty much all just snaps so it was pretty easy
hi there undo the phillips screw inside the handle the gently slide the whole handle outer casing to the right about 1 cm, it will help if you push it into the door as you do it to give it a little bit of help the feed the whole mechanism through the hole in the panel hey presto!
