Have you watched youtube videos? I watched many of them in preparation for swapping the handles on my WRX. While many of the videos were NOT about the WRX or Impreza at all, I got a lot of confidence and knowledge that carried over from say Outback videos.

To your question, you should likely start with removing the interior door cards. This should allow access to the guts and SHOULD be able to be done with a closed door. From there, you should be able to remove the interior handle/open the door from the inside. I think this is best done with the window up but I'm sure a youtube video will tell best as I forget.

Clips are tricky and its amazing how such a crappy thing works so well when it does, but clipping things in is rough. I never had issues with my rods going into the clips. I would not try heat or prying but lube...silicone maybe. Or even a small handed friend....find you a Filipino girlfriend!
