These are a PITA :mad
Inside the door shut is a black plastic grommet shaped like this 0. Pull that out gently. IIRC the centre comes out first. Then with a small torch you will see a small peice of metal attached to the inner door handle assembly.
Bend i wire coat hanger straight and then push this metal lever thingy towards the door A pillar hinges, you should be able to see the holes at the top of the exterior door handle open up where the top clips for no1 go through the door.
Now bend your wire coat hanger end to make a small hook
Next place the door handle cover (NO1) into the holes and hold it there with your hand. Now get your wire coat hanger and place it through the hole in the door and hook the metal clip. Pull the metal slider clip toward you to secure the outer cover into place. This slider secures the lugs on the back of the cover.
Good luck, it took me ages to work these out even with a manual :frown

Dunno why but the securing clip is not shown on the diagram. Its part of the blank area.
