Removing 36 door handle

I’ve removed the two outer screws and two inner screws and the whole door handle mechanism is hanging on the door. I can’t figure out how to separate the inside from the outside! I’ve wiggled and pulled, it starts to separate and then gets hung up on something. I don’t see any screws or pins holding the two together. Am I just not trying hard enough? Any help?

    Turn the handle around as you pull.

  • That worked. I had tried twisting and pulling but having the inside mechanism unbolted from the door didn’t allow me enough leverage. Once I screwed it back, I pulled the handle off immediately.
