Need help in removing this door knob

Hi!

I'm trying to remove this commercial schlage door lock/knob however once I took off the cover plate on the inside, I'm not able to remove the door knob on the other side. Any ideas on how to remove this?

You've got to unscrew the key cylinder so the outer plate can come off. Remove the edge plate (looks like you've already removed the 2 small screws that hold it on). Just opposite the key cylinder in the edge of the lock body there's a hole big enough to insert a #2 phillips screwdriver. Back the set screw (CCW) a few turns so you can unscrew the cylinder.

The edge plate might be stuck with paint around it's edges, but if you take a medium flat-bladed screwdriver and push the main latch in a little so you can slip the blade behind the edgeplate, you can gently pry it out.

You can also take a utility knife and score around the edge plate to loosen it. A few raps with a screwdriver handle usually jars it loose. Otherwise, use the blade of a screwdriver, as previously described.

Remember to re-assemble the lock with the lever return spring-cages oriented properly; Make sure the arrows correspond to the direction the levers operate. If installed backwards, the levers will tend to sag and not spring back properly.

The throat unscrews. Simply use a pair of vise grips to unscrew the throat and the lever will pop off

The Schlage L9453 lock in the photos is indeed removed by first unscrewing the "throat" (collar) on the INSIDE lever shaft, then removing the escutcheon thru-bolts, removing the inner escutcheon, then removing the spindle tie-screws, and inner spindle, all of which OP has done. However, the OUTER lever is internally circlipped to the outer escutcheon, forming one unit, and once the cylinder is removed as described, the lever/escutcheon assembly can be removed.
