The driver's outside door handle started to pull away from the door. I bought a new one, but I can't figure out how to get the old one out and the new one in.

    Pull the inside door panel off< you should be able to reach the two screws to unbolt the old one, unclip the linkage, There is a plastic liner behind the panel with black goo to seal it on the edges. try to keep it in tacked.Power locks shouldn't matter as they operate the linkage. leave the window up so the glass doesn't get in the way.

    I got everything disconnected except the linkage to the door latch. It goes through the door handle in an S-curve. I don't have enough wiggle room to get it disconnected. Any tips?
