    Default Changing interior door handle ....

    Hi all. Need to bend some experts ears please. I want to change the interior handles on my vec from the silver ones to the chrome ones. Quick question is how do they come off? I know they do as Iíve seen a picture online of a doorcard with the handle missing. I see black plastic plug type things on the back but canít see a way of getting them off. Looking to take these chrome ones off and replacing them to my original doorcards. Any help please much appreciated!

    the handle is held in place by a metal pin and at both ends it is a little bit kerbed. I milled out that edge at both ends with a dremel and forced the pin out with a screwdriver. but it is a pain to get the pin out and not damage everything around. moreover, the pin is not a solid metal pin, but some sort of metal tube, very small in diameter and is split on one side, so it tends to expand when you try pushing it out. not an easy job...

    Thanks for the reply mate. Appreciated. I did notice that pin and wondered and thought it was trickier than I first anticipated! Iíve managed to source 4 GSI doorcards with the chrome handles already on so will just go for a complete doorcard change methinks.
