07 Sportage drivers door handle snapped off

I hate when that happens.... Ok, I snapped off the drivers door plastic handle on my 07 sportage LX. Being bored (and frugal) I took it mostly apart (getting the door "liner" off was easy). Now I see that the injection moded movable external handle part has a huge oblong air bubble in it, right at the critical angle, and that significantly contributed to the failure of the part-which should have been cast solid if it had passed quality control. Can someone please tell me how to completely remove the handle assembly from the door? I removed the 2 bolts I saw holding it in and removed the lock, but cant figure out how to get out/replace the REST of the handle off without making things go FUBAR. Some way to disconnect the front most part of the handle? Soem majic tabs somewhere? Anyone have a source for replacement parts? Thanks tons! I enjoy the site!
