Question External door handle

Looking for directions in removing door handle on 87 excella. Wanting to replace with newer version or polish. Also having troulble with folding step not locking in place. Can you just grind away at interior slide to fix?

I just changed the exterior door handle. I had to unscrew it near the striker plate (2), and unscrew the inner handle. That's basically it.

The folding step... Mine was acting really goofy. I found a bunch of loose allen key bolts on it. Also some lube would probably be in order. Might want to try and watch the metal guides as it slides (or doesn't slide) back into place.

What are you calling the handle. A photo would help. My trailer has a latch handle on the door and a grab handle to the right of the door with a dead bolt in it.
