Re: [T3] Door Handles "window winder"


<x-flowed>Yeah, window winder, not door handle! My 67 Square has what looks like slots for c-clips, but no c-clips. Everett says no cross pins, so I guess I'll have to "muscle" them with my Chanelock pliers. Mike

have. I don't see any c-clips, so have prise with screwdriver as my

wiggles! I'm not missing something less than obvious here am I???

Well, it doesn't sound like you're describing an outside door handle, and this doesn't sound like a VW inside door handle, either. So would it be the window winder knob?

If so, there were 2 styles. Early cars used a pin thru the handle and
shaft, while late cars have a screw that comes from the fact of the
winder into the end of the shaft. The screw head is hidden under a
plastic strip.

What year is your Type 3?
