    Default door handle problem

    was fitting my chrome door handles and the torx screw that you undo to release the handel fell inside the doorcard, does anybody know the exact size of screw it is, dont want to be driving with 3 chrome handles and one missing.

    best thing to do it take the door card off... the screw isn't a 'conventional' one so you'll have to recover the original..

    the door cards aren't hard to get off ..

    they are part of the door handle carrier assy which you would have to buy and then remove the doorskin to fit anyway....

    the skins aren't hard to remove.. two hidden fixings inside the door pull handle ( the front comes off to reveal it) .. then 3 screws at the bottom of the door..

    the rest is popstuds...just unclip them out of the door...then you have to push the trim up, off the top edge of the steel door frame.

    all thats then left is to disconnect the door cable release ( pull the outer back and flip it up before taking the steel peg out of the handle) and disconnecting the speaker cable and window power cables..

    if it's got a window winder in the door card, there is a C clip on the back that you will have to prise sideways to remove the handle..

    still no joy with the handle,it just wont fall into place when you tighten the torx screw, i must have messed something else up inside the lock recess ,hope vauxhall dont make a meal of it if i take it to them, mite go to local scrappy and see what i can find.
