The Rag Method:

Submitted by T on Tue, 14/08/2007 - 13:23.
The open ends of the clip are on the handle side.
Place a rag between the handle and the plastic washer. Pull the rag in a U shape towards the handle axle.Drag the rag backwards and forwards and I'm told the clip will fall out.T

Reinstalling the Handle:

When you want to put the handle back onto the car you fit the clip to the handle.Place the spring and washer into the trim then just push the handle on hard.You'll hear the clip snap into place and then the handle will stay there.Sometimes the drive splines are worn and the handle will fall off again. Just rotate the handle a few degrees until it finds a better position and press it on again.T
