Here we go

1st. easy and straight forward mate you need 30 torx's,10mm socket,Phillip's screw driver ,pick to take the window winder and interior door pocket/handle off as there are two Phillip screws under it.

2nd.remove the door card,pull the plastic (shower curtain) that's what i know it as form work, undo the nut you can see holding the handle on then unclip the plastic ant theft cover over the handle you should just see the other nut when this is out of the way.

3rd. towards the bottom of the door below the catch there should be a torks bolt that hold the bottom of the window runner undo this its a 30 torx's.

4th,there is a torx bolt at the top that holds the little triangle black cover by the window undo it and remove the triangle,reattach the window handle and lower the window to take the pressure off the runner and the 2nd torks bolt should be up underneath the window seal towards the top remove this watch you don't drop it.

5th, then its just a matter of pulling the runner down and out to get at the other nut on the handle removing the cover . then its pull the handle out with a bit of playing with the bars that operate the handle then that's it the re-fitting the handle is the revers of this.

hope this helps you mate
