Driver side, car latch

The inside handle I believe something came undone cause it won’t catch to open. How do I remove panel (s) to see what the problem is and maybe re-attach to fix or replace?

Thanks.

This video looks like the ticket, you may want to start with the handle just to see if you can do it without removing the whole panel. Hopefully the outside latch still works.
