You need a Torx head screwdriver T25. Open the door and on the side of the door is a small black grommet, remove grommet, inside is the torx screw you need to loosen for the lock mechanism to move. you dont need to remove the screw just loosen enough to move the lock assembly around. Once loose enough, install the door handle and tighten lock assembly back and put grommet back.
Here is a picture if you need a bit of visual clues.

SOURCE: replace exterior door handle

On most vehicles it has to be done with the door panel off and with the window up. The door panel is usually the hardest part, you have to pry out the fasteners with out ripping them out of the hardboard backing, you can get a door panel tool at most auto parts stores.
If you can, it is easiest (But it is kinda cheating) to go out to a wrecking yard and try to get the replacement first, that way you can get a chance to "practice" taking your door panel off without hurting anything expensive. You might also find one already apart and easier accessable. As you take the replacement out, take notes or pictures if you have to to remember the order of things. there will be lock and door linkage attatched, best to get all of the fasteners and clips around them and what ever else that looks neccassary. You do not want to go back for them if you find out you need them later and most places will not charge you for them anyway.

How do I replace drivers side exterior door handle on a 2007 nissan versa s hatchback

For a permanent fix, you'll have to take the door panel apart, drill a hole through the handle and the big plastic door mechanism inside, and then insert a cotter pin. I found out how to do so via a forum, but the critical photos of the operation seem no longer to be available there.

Try these two sources:

The first link is my notes in Evernote, including the photos from Nicoclub, while the second link goes to the Nicoclub forum on the problem, where at the end someone has added a photo showing you exactly where to drill the holes in the door mechanism.

2007 yukon exterior door handle paint is pealing off. GM told me that I should have waxed them more often. Does anyone have any experience with paint not adhering to plastic door handle?

If there REALLY is a requiremert to wax the door handes (and I severly doubt it) let the dealer show you where it is noted in the owners manual. He will not be able to find it, I am sure. I am also sure you have no way of wining this battle, considering the 07 Yukon is long out of warantee. The best you can do is tell hi he's full of **** and a liar. BUT!! if he's the only dealer in town, don't do that. You may need him someday.
