    Default Rear Window handle removal.

    I'd forgotten to raise this....

    When I was at 888 Nigel said to me "Ya back windows open"..To which I said "no it aint" then I opened the door and found the window was open half a turn.

    Apparently its common and caused by a combination of the weight of the door handle and vibration. The solution is to remove the handle and refit it 180 degrees round from the original (if that makes sense).

    Had a look expecting to find a screw on the handle but there is none. Any one know how the get the handle off?

    I'll watch this with interest m8 as one of my back windows often goes down a fraction, just enough to increase horrible wind noise !

    I used to get wind noise from my rear window and found it was open a bit, turns out my drivers seatbelt was gettin caught on the handle, and when i went to grab it to put it on, it was pulling the window winder forward slightly!
