Default Door handle removal-help?

I need toremove the door handle on the drivers side of an 89and can't figure out how it comes off. The handle is broken where it attatches to the rod inside the door.

Common prroblem. Make sure you get the all metal
replacement (Blue Oval).
Raise the window.
Remove the two plugs on the armrest and the big screws.
Remove the screws on the arm rest and the armrest.
Un hook the wires .
With a stiff putty knife between the panel and door
slide to each holder and pry loose.
Lift the panel up to unhook it at the window trim.
Peel off the plastic behind the door handle.
Drill out the two pop rivets and handle will come out.
You can use bolts or LARGE rivets on the new handle.
