Well, my driver-side door handle is officially worn out; I've got a new one on order and anticipate a weekend arrival. Too long to explain what happened, but it's time to change the handle assembly.
Soooo, judging by the look of it (after removing the interior panel), there's two vertical saw-blade-lookin' brackets on each side of the handle housing which exert pressure to keep the housing pressed against the door....and some strange retaining clips for them. I don't think there's enough room to remove the brackets with the window still in the door; it seems they're meant to be removed/installed through the window sill. Anyone know the wiser?
My plan is to tear apart what I must this weekend to change the handle, hoping someone has some input here to make it go smooth
Thanks in advance!
