    ok what you want to do is to first is pop the door light out of the panel and unplug the wire. then u want to pop out ur window and lock thing and unplugg as well. you can do this by using a flathead and they should come out really easily. then you have to take off the door panel. to this u have to take out some screws. they are located on the bottom edge of the panel as well as in the center of the panel where the larger door handle is at. there are also two or three screws near the hinges as well. after u have taken off the panel there shoud be two wires that are connected to ur handle from the inside. one is for your locks and the other is for your door. there are two screws holding the handle to the panel. undo those screws then viola u got it off. now to buy the new door handle and put it on. DO NOT GO TO LEXUS to buy your parts. because the lexus sc300 was originally a toyota soarer in japan. the lexus sc and toyota supra and toyota solara are pretty much the same cars. so u can go to toyota and order the parts for chaper instead of paying more cause it has the title lexus. hope this was helpful to you.
