You'll need to remove the inner door panel to repair it. Window up, obviously. The "sawblade" pieces actually go in channels inside the handle and sandwich the door sheet metal between the sawblade piece and the outside of the handle. There should be metal clips on either side of the door handle that hold those sawblade pieces in. My CJ has one inserted from the top, and one inserted from the bottom.
