    Unhappy Chrome Door Handles - fitting problem

    In Mark the Cabby's excellent How 2 he states:

    4) Then undo the screw until it tightens or stops, It will not come right out. So don't worry about it falling inside your door

    Oh yes it can!

    I decided to fit the front passenger door handle first and following Mark's instructions undid the screw and removed the handle. Great I thought but I could not get the replacement parts to fit. The problem was that I did not realise the screw had been fitted incorrectly at the factory. Before starting this job look carefully at the screw position - see picture 2 in Mark's How2. See if it is fitted into a groove in the plastic housing. Mine was not so it would not move the plastic housing sufficiently far enough to enable the handle to go back fully into the door. I tried to spring it back into the groove but it would not go in. Then you know what happened the screw came out and fell into the bottom of the door.

    I now have to remove the door trim panel. I can see 4 screws on the bottom of the trim panel. If I remove these will the trim pull away and lift up allowing me to access the door innards?

    Help please as I am great at breaking plastic trim clips. Other wise it is a trip to the local dealer.
