Total Newbie - Needs help with Laguna MK2 Rear Door Handle

Hi everyone, Having just bought my first ever Renault, a 2003 Laguna Mk2 Dynamique Estate 1.9TD, as a family run around. My first impressions are good.

However, The drivers side rear door lock failed in the closed position After a couple of hours faffing around I managed to get the door card off and the door open. I have removed the door lock but cannot work out how to remove the door handle.

I found the torx screw behind the grommet on the door skin in the wheel arch section. I have backed this screw out (it doesn't seem to want to unscrew completely). But the door handle is still solid with no signs of movement.

Can any one point me in the right direction to remove the handle (e.g. Push it/pull it forwards/backwards etc) so I can remove the handle to reconnect the cable on the new lock mechanism to the handle. Thank you all in advance.
