Hello and thanks for the donation!
If you put a small flat-blade screwdriver directly above the pivot point on the lock lever (between the bezel and the lever) and pry up, you'll release the top part of the bezel. Then you do the same thing just below the pivot point for the door handle and you'll release the bottom half of the bezel. Once that's done, pull out on the rear of the bezel and back to the rear of the car to release the front hook from its metal catch on the inner door structure. Unfortunately this bezel is extremely hard to remove without breaking, but this is the correct way to remove it so you must use caution to avoid breaking it, at the same time you have to pry pretty hard on it to get it to come out. Pretty much a lose-lose situation. It either doesn't come out, or it comes out broken 90% of the time. With luck and some patience, it can be removed without being broken though, goodluck!
