Door handle removal

Having removed the two screw from the outside door handle I am pulling the handle by 1/2 inch but it refuses to move any further. Could someone please describe the correct way to remove it please. Many thanks. I wonder if there is a picture of this assembly on here somewhere

At least on my doors there was no clip or anything holding the handle on the backside. They sometimes get twisted after decades of use. Give it a twist one way or the other and it should come out. They have an offset that can get stuck. The bottom one is the stock handle.

the square stock usely gets wore and the female part too. so sometimes alot of wiggling and pulling is needed.

I posted this awhile ago, but here it is again.
If you try removing the outside door handle by removing the outside screws and then twisting the handles, it won't work, and may cause damage! If you keep the handle in position and hold it while reaching inside the door and pulling the door handle all the way, like you're opening the door, but hold it in the open position, the outside door handle can then be rotated down to a point where it will be able to be pulled out of the door. You might have to rotate it and work it a little but This should work easily without "bulling" the handle! When the outside handle comes out, release the inside handle, and you're done! Same for other door on the opposite side.
