Just wanted to update this thread with some information. For those looking to replace the Map door cover, you do not need to take the entire map door assembly apart. There are a handful of TORX8 bolts on the underside of the map pocket. Simply remove these and the cover pops off. There is 1 difficult bolt to remove as there is only a little bit of room, but it can be done.

I will post pictures and a guide up later.

Rather than start a new thread, I thought I would just latch on to this one, since it mentions the door handle, even thought it does not really address it.

 

How does one remove the part of the door handle that looks to be attached to the door-open lever?

 

I know that the outer-face of the handle just pops off (though mine actually had a jammed key that turned "pop" into "break")(thank goodness for 5-min epoxy), but I'm talking about the part that makes up the inner-face of the handle (the part that faces  the door panel).

 

I've already pulled the door panel, but there are screws all over the place, and it is not clear which are the ones that need to be removed.  As an added bonus, there looks to be another plastic catch near the bottom, but I can't tell if this something that is melt-welded in (as many of the panel parts appear to be), and even if it is not, I can't tell what sort of catch is holding it in (and the last thing I want to do is break that tab, as it looks like epoxy is not going to help me much of that one).

 

Any insight?

Did you see the video DIY here

Hi Loren,

 

Yup, I saw that DIY, and have the door panel off already; I.e., I think it has taken me as far as it can...

 

The issue is that I don't know how to get the complete handle/pull assembly off the door panel.  The outer cover of the handle pops off, but the part that has the big screws running through it (into the outer door structure) is held on in some way that does not seem obvious.

 

I imagine that if I just start removing every screw I can find, I'll eventually get it free, or determine that it is somehow "bonded" on. Hope was, however, that there was some diagram somewhere that said something like "push this up, and remove this screw (with a little arrow)"...  Or some one knows for sure that it does not come off easily...

Hi Loren,

 

Many thanks!

 

Armed with the tip to remove the spring, I found the mystery "hold down point", and since the instructions indicated that the lower tab ought to just come-out, I give it a little more "elbow" and it came free.

 

Having the instructions were a big help.

 

Cheers,

Alex
