Experience with Door handle on F350?

So the exterior door handle broke on the delivery truck where I work, a 2004 F 350. I know you've gotta pop the interior door panel off to get in to work on it, but I've never done that on anything but a '93 Honda Prelude. Is it as simple as just poppin it off, or is there a trick to it to make it easier?

There's probably a couple screws near the handle and probably the window/doorlock switches. Other than that just pull straight out to pop all the plastic anchors and then straight up to lift the panel clear of the door lock and window track.

Yessir...got er fixed today. Dealin with customers while tryin to do it it took me about 45 min. If I woudln't have had to deal with customers it would have taken about 20 mins or so. Wasn't hard at all. Thanks for the info on how to do it.

Yeah you could leave the door attached to the chain and then toss it for an anchor when you get unintended acceleration and can't stop the Tacoma
