2012 E92 removing door handles?

Hey guys,

I've searched everywhere but how can I remove the door handles on my car...do I have to remove the whole door panel in order to do it? Pelican parts had some weird type of way of doing it. Thanks!

Interior or exterior? Exterior there's a plug in jamb. Remove and there's a torx that releases the lock section then pull door handle back to release.
Interior require door panel removal.

Exterior, I'll take a look at it again then. I'm trying to remove it to wrap the car doors so I wasn't sure if Pelican parts had the right directions. Thank you.

T-25 torx. Look in hole and the torx is shrouded by plastic.
