Default Exterior Door Handle Removal

Next question... Is there a way to remove the exterior door handle without gutting the entire door? I've done that a few times, but seems like an awful lot just to get to that piece. Anyone ever removed one a different way?

Just trying to soak up anything I can, I should have been on a here a while ago... so far the information and responses from everyone have been great. Thanks everyone.

Short of sawing through the arms on it, the minimum I'd say you have to remove is:

Unscrew interior door handle and rotating lock ****
Remove door card and 5 bolts holding door panel in place, as well as the 2 pesky screws hidden in the carpet.
Pull the panel clips out, unplug the switches (if drivers door or memory seat), and remove the panel completely for space
Peel back plastic moisture barrier
Wind window up - remove the bolts on the annoying security shield
Wind window down - wiggle security shield out while carefully scratching your tint in several places
Unbolt the handle

I took the lock out completely last time I did this - adds a little maneuvering room for the anti-theft plate, and not hard to do.

Thanks Hilton! I'm pretty familiar with removing the door panel, and that pesky security shield! ...I might use a different word than pesky, but not so appropriate for here. I was working on one this morning, and attempting to record the process for everyone to see. Unfortunately, I was a little impatient and the outer latch bolts stripped on me with very little effort... after attacking that with an arsenal of weapons, I had to stop to get other work done. So then I thought, well cool, now I can upload a video removal of the door panel at least... but apparently I WASN'T RECORDING!!! It's about 93 outside right now (at least 100 in the shop), and I don't feel like fighting with it anymore today. But stay tuned, the photo shoots and videos are in process... Started on that sliding roof cable this morning also, danglerb (if you're reading)

Lifting exterior handle a bit can give a better angle of approach to the nuts that hold it in place.
