door trip panel removal

I need to remove door trim panel to repair locking mechanism. I removed bottom screws, handle, latch and pried plastic fittings. What I could NOT remove was door glass regulator handle. No allen head screws or any nature. I tried to pry with rag around pry bar until I was about to ruin panel.

Please give me some ideas. Is the handle press fit? Do I need to pry harder?

Thanks, Wrangler 05

There is a small spring clip on the back of the handle. Push on the panel and look on the back of the handle. You can use a small hook to pull it off or a screwdriver to push it off from the other side. Be careful not to lose it as they tend to fly off. Make sure you put it back on the handle before putting the handle back on the door.

What type of door are you removing the panel from?
