Hi, I did this a few years back. From what I remember, you might need to unscrew the torx screw in the interior door tray (behind the elec window switch and probably covered by a plastic cap). This will let the tray pull out (you might need to do this not sure) also there is torx screw behind the interior door handle that you need to take out, the interior handle should now come out.
From this point I can't remember 100%, but there is a cable attached to the handle, somehow this unclips and I think it releases the tension for the exterior handle. Try looking under the exterior handle too, might give you some clues if it has any screws or clips there etc to be undone. It's not hugely difficult.
Hope any of that helps...

I would imagine that youd need to access the securing nut's from inside. This would mean removing the door card and possibly some other parts to get to them.

I wanted to colour code the door handles on my Laguna but it was a real PITA to gain access to the bolts as the whole window mechanism would have to have been removed

Might be simpler on the Clio though
