It can be done either way, but I would do it with the door handle loose to give you a little more wiggle room. Basically you have to install it with the white plastic clp facing down, then as it slides in you rotate it clockwise while sliding it in and out, and eventually it will fall into place to where it will sit flush, then you install the retaining clip from the side. You also need to have the actuating rod disconnected while doing this, and clip it in from inside the door afterwards.
