Maytag refrigerator handle loose

I have a side-by-side refrigerator model PSD262LHEZ and the door handles are loose. From what little I can find, the handles come up, but you have to disengage clips first with a special card. I've tried a few things, but I can't see how the clips are working so I can take them off.

Any tips on how to get the handles off?

Figured it out. Two clips with "horns" on the door. The handle latches each have two screws, arms that wrap around the horns, and then a retaining clip. I used a putty knife to push back the clip, but then I needed another knife to push up the arms because they were on the horns tight. All 4 screws were loose. After I tightened them, it was fun trying to line up everything to get the handle back on without scratching the door too much with the handle clips. It looks like the door clips are opposite each other (latch ring on bottom of top clip and top of bottom clip. Don't know why it works like that.) Anyway, pictures here in case anyone else runs into this.

Quite a piece of engineering there.
