Loose passanger door handle on 2006 Jeep Wrangler

My passanger door handle half way comes out when you open the door. How do I tighten it?

It sounds like it may have broken. The inner handle needs to be inspected with the door panel off, to see if it came loose or failed. Remove the screws from the strap. and door lever/lock assembly. Disconnect the linkages from the lock, and lever by flipping up the plastic retainers. Use a panel removal tool, or wide thin tool to pry the panel from the door.

How do I take the door panel off? I don't want to break anything! BTW it's the exterior handle. I know I need to get that panel off, I just need to know how?
