This is for the rear door handle

Not all can be fixed, if corrosion is too much I found it hard to get them to work again. But it’s worth the try.

I would estimate 1-2 hours for this job.

Fig 1: Removing the red “unlocked” cover

This is quite tedious, a very small Phillips screwdriver is useful. Then I used a little bigger Phillips to get the whole cover off.

Fig 2: Remove both bolts to release the handle

Fig 3: Put a Phillips screwdriver to the car clip and gentle prise off

Fig 4: Better view of the direction you should push

Fig 5: Apart

Fig 6: Take off the ashtray and it’s support

Fig 7: Remove three bolts

Fig 8: Remove the inside of the door. Please be gentle and apply even force from the inside. After the first “snap” I squeezed my hand in between and got the rest of the fixation loose

Fig 9: Two fixation’s didn’t came off

Fig 10: Pulled them out and put them on the back of the inside of the door

Fig 11: Remove two screws holding the anti-theft bracket

Fig 12: Remove on at the bottom of the anti-theft bracket

You don’t need to remove the anti-theft bracket, only tilt it away to gain access to the screw holding the door handle

Fig 13: Location of one of two screws holding the door handle

Fig 14: Remove this cover to gain access to the second screw holding the door handle

Fig 15: Dirty!!

Fig 16: I cleaned the spring and the hinges with a chain cleaner, and a lot of WD40 until the operation of the door handle was normal

Fig 17: I put a small piece of steel to add more twist to the spring

Like I said before I was unsuccessful getting the door handle to function normally on the other side. The car has always been parked with that side to a busy street for the last 11 years !
