Question how to remove F10 door handle?

I am trying to vinyl wrap my F10, but I got stuck by the door handle bar.


I know the access to the screws because I found this youtube, but I am stuck; When I open up the rubber seal, I saw a deep gap in between two metal frames (the exterior metal panel and the interior metal panel). I am afraid if I unscrew the hex screw and pull it out, it would fall inside the door between the two panels. If that happens, I have to take the door apart, which is very undesired.

If I don't remove the screw, but just push the screw so the rubber piece(cover for grip) I could push the rubber out a bit, but it doesn't completely come out.

I am scared of breaking anything on the handle, but does anyone know how to get the handle bar out? Also, when I am pulling the handle bar, I could still feeling the pull back force even after I unscrew the hex screw; I was wondering even if I get the rubber piece out, how do I get the door handle bar out? It seems like the handle is still connected to a spring.

If anyone know any video tutorial online for F10, that would be super...

Thank you in advance!

I found the answer now. You need torx 15 and hex 4 key. There are two screws In the hole. Look straight in, you can find the door bar screw. Look side way towards the panel, you will find the key hole screw. The door bar screw is quite deep. So look into with a flashlight will help a lot. Both screws will self attach to the slot, so even you release it, it won't fall into the gap.
