That seems like a hell of a lot of work to get the door handle off. I have not ever taken my door apart but im sure there has to be some steps there thats not needed to remove the handle.

THere's a LOT of problems with those instructions, and about 1/2 of them look unneeded.

For example, it says to take off the inside handle cover, then the inside door pull handle, THEN take off the door trim piece?

You cannot remove the center plastic trip piece, the way it's shown in those pictures, without removing the entire door panel first.

There is no reason to remove the door molding for the windows.

I'm going to do my door handles with some CF overlays like was found on ebay recently, just need some pricing from Compact Divisions first. After that, I'll look at it.

thanks for those directions but they are hard to comprehend. is there any easier way to do this. example, get a swivel socket and take the bolts for the handle off from the small hole where the actuator rods go??

if there is any better directions, id like them or an easier way would be nice too, but again thanks for the start i really appreciate it.

I believe there is a tiny access hole. You may have to put the socket on the nut, then put an extension through the hole and connect it to the socket. The angle isn't perfect, but its enough to loosen off the bolt.

I had to do this when I had my car painted last year. Most of the steps in the diagram aren't needed, other than taking off the door panel. Its pretty simple, you just have to look at it from every angle once you get the door panel off.

Those steps were from HMA service under door disassembly. I thought they might help you.

I searched HMAservice for you and that was the only referecene I could find.

Lots of needed steps in there... I haven't fully taken mine off, but I've been close, and it appears you could do it with these steps.
(Be sure your window is rolled up)
1. Remove door panel (7 screws, the door handle cover, the corner plate (pressure clips), a few more pressure clips and some wiggling. Disconnect mirror, window and door light wires.
2. Remove plastic covering door panel (use sturdy, disposable latex gloves, the tar stuff is a mess and will NOT come off your hands!!)
3. Look in the door through one of the many large holes and you can see the handle. I'm pretty sure there's two bolts you can easily undo. The door handle should start to come out from the outside.
4. Disconnect the connecting rod, you should be able to reach it from the outside.

You may have to remove one or two extra bolts, but you don't have to mess with the other steps DTN mentioned about all the window mechanism. Like you *may* have to remove the left bolt in this step:

His steps 7-11 are not necessary, among others.
