Rear door pull, burlwood trim ( removal?)

1999 m320, The rear door pull has pull away from the top and I know the burlwood trim on the outside of the pull needs to come off so I can get to the screws under it. How does this trim piece come off? Would appreciate any suggestions replacing this door pull.
Thanks in advance

Do you have to remove the door panel to get the pull handle off

I was successful getting the plastic burlwood removed from the pull handle without any scrapes or marks. I was able to remove the two screws and thought the pull handle would just pull out. It didn't and I didn't want to pull too hard until I knew if it did. Anyone done this job that would know?
Thanks In Advance
Thanks Witek M, Got the new door pull and it came without the Starlocks. I was able to get the plastic Burlwood off without any scratches but broke two door clips in removing the door panel. I was very careful and had a tool but I didn't have the touch I guess! The dealer had the right clips but the Starlocks are not available anymore. I had one good Starlock and after some thought I got the ideal to just use a hole clamp, it worked fine. It all went back together and its as good as new.
