Question replacing driver's door handle and lock barrel

My Fiat 500 driver's door handle snapped off completely - not just the front hinge - but the square section black plastic that operates the mechanism. I've bought a new complete replacement handle and can probably work out how to fit that once I've removed the door card.

But does anyone know how to remove the lock barrel from the old handle (what's left of it is still on the car) and fit it into the new handle? I think I might need to remove three screws on the inside of the mechanism but don't want any surprise springs or clips leaping off if I do dismantle it!

Don't know if you've seen this; http://www.fiatforum.com/500-guides/...ge-repair.html

it will probably be more clear once you've taken whats left of the old handle off, would not expect things to go flying off in the process of swapping over the lock barrel.

Re: replacing driver's door handle and lock barrel

I have swapped doors from one car to another today so need to change barrels. I've taken the three screws out but can't get the barrel out of the handle? Anyone know how? I'm sure there's a knack to it.
