1976 exterior door handles

Recommended Posts

You must remove the interior door upholstery panel to access the screw on the front edge of the handle to remove it from the door.  The exterior handle isn't physically connected to the rest of the latch/lock mechanism, so it just comes off once you remove the two screws--actually it'll fall off, so hold onto it as you remove the rear-most screw.  And don't forget that little pot metal spacer that goes between the inner edge of the door and the rear-most screw.  


If you're not sure about how to remove the interior panel without boogering something up, check the archives or PM me; I did a column on that some time ago.  


Oh, and don't forget there's a little gasket that goes under the front part of the handle; might as well do both while you're at it.
