Door handle refurb 01/06/03

>> Next >>
While I have been doing the car I decided to strip down and repaint the exterior door handles.

The lock barrel was removed the by inserting the key. Tape was then put around it before the key was removed. This is important or the locking pins will fire out.
The clip that holds the latch spring was released with a flat head screw driver and a pair of long nose plyers. You can also see the lock barrel.
The latch can now move freely. The latch was released by knocking out its pivot pin with a center punch from the 'whole' end. Note ensure you hit the correct end of the pin or you will not release the teeth.
The latch to door lock connectors can be removed by simply undoing the Screw.
