How do I replace the exterior door handles?

Has anyone done this? Is there a write up on how to remove them?

Re: How do I replace the exterior door handles?

PITA... Pull door panels and then the vapor barrier. At this point you can get the torx driver in there to remove the 3 bolts holding each. Unplug the connector and wiggle them out. Fronts are a little more difficult because of additional length. Block out a Saturday and take your time.

Re: How do I replace the exterior door handles?

If I recall correctly, you may need to move the windows up or down an inch or so to get the best access to certain bolts.

Re: How do I replace the exterior door handles?

I love the door trim resting on the ground. I wouldn't have let these guys near my car with tools.

Cheers,
Steve
