I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

It sounds like you missed the screw behind the inside door handle.

Pull the inside door handle then use a flat edge screw driver to insert it behind the trim panel in the "pocket" area. The trim panel will pop out of the door handle pocket.
Behind the trim panel will be another philips screw to remove.
Remove the screw and then the door handle will come off with the entire door panel, just unhook the cables from the handle so you can set the panel aside.
Here is a view of the screw location with the trim panel removed:

If you meant the pull section for closing the door and not the release handle, there is a partially hidden screw just below the base of the pull handle as shown below:
