There is a combination of screws and plastic (xmas trees) pieces.
Take the screws out and slide a screwdriver inside the edges and "pop" the plastic pieces out, you'll have to remove the electric connections to locks, windows, etc. The inside handle is operated by two metal bars that are removable from the handle itself.
This should give you a clear view of the outside handle and any connections that need to be tightened up to close up the gap you have.
Remove window crank handle. (circlip on shaft)
Remove door pull handle (two small screws)
Remove screws around the edge of the panel.
Pull straight out to pop loose the clips all around the edges.
Hold the door panel out at an angle, lift up and slide it outward (away from the door hinges) until it clears the sail panel (the plastic triangle near the mirror) then lift it off. (It clips to the door metal along the window line too, but lift it off and it unclips.
I got it, thanks for the info. I was not really able to get the door handle to push in very much more at all. There is no screws back there to tighten it up. Only the connection to the bar going to the door latch itself. Its better but still not snug like it should be.
One other thing, on that same door, jeep may have been wrecked, I dont know, the door hinge itself, the one that connects to the rear view mirror, looks bent out a little, thus making the top of the door frame not fit tight against the jeep. In looking at the door and the front quarter pannel, the door does stick out. Any idea on how to bend this back in a little?
I have an uncle that straightened some body parts for me once using a series of huge pipe clamps, and positioned it around something solid and just kept cranking them slightly and it worked, but I've never tried this myself. You'd need to remove the door, and everything again, glass too.
theirs 2 vertical wedges on the sides of the handle, that hold the handle tight to the door. roll the window down and using a long regular screwdriver and a hammer lightly tap them back down untill the handle seats to the door skin. no need to remove the interior door trim.
