Re: [T3] Door Handles

<x-flowed>My 67 Square doesn't have any plastic covers on the interior handles. I can see a spring under the door panel, but think it is just to keep door panel pressed tight to handle? They will wiggle a lot with Chanelocks, but won't come off! Mike

For outside door handles; Look inside the door edge (Door side of the jamb)
and see if you see 2 phillips head screws. You want to remove the top one (the
bottom one gets the lock loose (up to 67).Once you get the screw out, slide
the handle to the front, and lift out.
For inide door handles; remove the plastic cover with a small screw driver,
prying at the front edge,and pop it out. Underneath is 1 or 2 screws (depending
on year) and remove them (it). Now you have access to the 2 10mm bolt headed
6mm screws that hold the handle to the door. I hope this helps.
