Stupid door question

On a '76.

Pass side, arm rest - the chrome ring at the top that hides the screw is held in place how? After a while I'm putting things back together and it's not holding on to anything. Also, there's two springs (compression) intended to go behind the handles - can somebody help with installation sequence :

spring - door panel - plastic disc - handle?

door panel - plastic disc - spring - handle?

It works OK without them, but since they're there....

Thanks,

John

the passenger side armrest upper "trim clip" is held on by a support bracket. You are missing this item (see pic).

It goes before the screw and the chrome trim clips on to it.

The spring goes: door > spring > door panel > plastic circle > handle....

...outward from door panel:

1. Retainer (cone-shaped thingie)

2. Spring

3. Control knob

4. Lockwasher and screw

5. Blanking disc

I don't have mine this way, but that's what the book says.

work around edges. Sequence for handles is: spring behind door panel (around the shaft) w/ the little end toward the outside of the car, then the door panel, plastic escheon, handle.

little clip that marsmann posted, you can make the trim stay in place by GENTLY bending the chrome piece so that it fits tighter against its clip. That's worked for me several times in the same situation.

Cheers
