once door card if off peel back the inner cover, there is 2 alan bolts that hold the handle on an one white clip for the linkage, twist the white thing holding the linkage to free it, then pull linkage out of it.
remove the screw nearest the front of car fully but only remove the one nearest lock half way then remove the backing plate. when re fitting put the screw nearest the lock in only a few turns then fit plate before fitting other screw. then put linkage bar back into the white clip an turn clip so the fastener holds it in place

Re: how to remove mk2 dor card and outer door handle

be warned, it can be an absoulute bastard puting the outside door handle back on! Took me a good 3 hours to reconnect it, the help of a mechanic (who couldnt do it), the help of a mate (who couldnt do it), about 4 cups of coffee, and about 5 breaks to calm down after getting too stressed.
great guide tho mate!

Re: how to remove mk2 door card and outer door handle

Dave, once the door cards are off, is it easy to get the electric window/runners? I think mine has come of it runner....
