How do you remove the door handles - 135i

my car had a wrap on it I am looking to remove. the wrap does slightly go underneath the door handles.

is there an easy way to loosen them so I can remove the wrap, and refasten them?

you can remove the interior trim panel, and loosen it from the inside.

Dont worry about anyone else that was curious about the process. Just leave us confused and lonely.

Remove the oblong plastic bit on the door above the latch - there's a torx bolt inside that you must unscrew. The handle trim piece and handle then slide out.

(Please excuse the lack of details, typing this from memory)

sorry dont get on here much - yes see above. open door - note the exposed face of the door - remove the small round rubber cover at the door handle height. use a torx (20 i believe) to loosen it. It will not fully come out if your delicate. the door handle will come free.
