A comment from the video posted above: "on the REAR doors, there are two more screws under the trim piece covering the door pull handle. You have to get a small screwdriver under the edge of the trim on the door pull handle (not the door handle) and carefully pry it off to expose two screws, one each at the top and bottom of the drawer pull handle."

Hope this helps.

Thank you Fred! I am replacing all four doorhandle, started with the front first and now at the back and of course got stuck because the panel would not lift off. Searched the internet and your post is the only place I’ve found the additional much needed info.
Thanks again!
