Door Handles & Grab Bar Removal?

I need to remove my door handles and the grab bar (above the glove box) so I can wrap them with black neoprene. Are the door handles just the two phillips head screws? Is anything going to fall inside the door when I take them off, or is it just as simple as that? What about the grab bar? I do not see any screws on the exterior, so are they somewhere inside the glove box? I just would rather take them off so I can get a good fit and then reinstall them after they are all fitted. Thanks again for your help, Scooby

For the handle, take to golve box door off and there are two nuts (one on each end) right above the opening. Easy to do. I think the door levers have a small rod inside that is connected to the latch at the back of the door. You'll have to take the screw out and look as I'm not real sure about it.

i think he just means the straps to shut the door from inside. if i am correct, yes just unscrew them and pull em out, slip the cover on, put em back.

Ok Guys I'm at a loss. I cannot for the life of me find where these two nuts are. Everything in my manual and online as far as instructions are only 2 sentences long.

"Remove glove box"
"Remove both nuts"

Can I get a photograph or a video or something because the only nut i'm finding is myself.

They are behind the handle
