2001 Escape Driver's Side Door Won't Open

When I pull on the driver's side door handle from the outside, the handle pulls but the door does not open. It doesn't feel like it engages anything. I have been opening the door from the back door for 6 months. The mechanic gave me an estimate of $230, so I want to see if I can do it myself.

What I have learned so far is that:
1. It is most likely a Door Handle Reinforcement (Drivers Side - 6T2Z*78223N03*A) I should be able to get this from the Ford Dealer

2. I need torx bits to remove the housing after taking off the interior panel

I have looked online and see that it is a common problem. Does anyone have any more advice, details, experience, or links?
