ah that brings back memories. My EL had only one guard plate, and it's in exactly the wrong place. It was extremely frustrating because I had the other handles off and ready for the buyer, but I tried everything to get this bastard off but didn't have my cordless drill at the time.
In the end I brought the whole door to my room and used my drill on the rivetts. When I got it out, I stomped on it until it was flat, and threw it in a random direction as hard as I could.

It's all easy apart from the door lock, i busted it getting to some handles at a self serve wrecker. Took all the screws out but couldnt get it off around the lock. Nothing a little force wont fix but lucky i didn't want the door trims.
finding space inside the door to un-do the nuts that are holding the handles on isn't easy though. just undo that nylon clip that's around the threaded rod for a bit more room.
Congratulations. You are still alive. Most people are so ungrateful to be alive, but not you. Not anymore.
