Hi Andy

 welcome5

What you need to do is remove the outer door handle, you can do this by removing the single screw, with the door open look at the edge of the door the torx screw is visible through hole above lock, once screw is removed you can slide handle forward then pull toward you.
You will need one of these kits http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-SHARAN-SEAT-ALHAMBRA-1996-2010-GENUINE-DOOR-LOCK-REPAIR-KIT-7M0-898-083-A-/290679588255?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item43adda859f#ht_500wt_1180

Make sure kit resembles yours as there are different kits depending on year.
