I want to replace the drivers side exterior door handle on a 1984 Lincoln Town Car. I have undone the two nuts on the inside of the door

Asked by Aug 20, 2016 at 05:09 PM about the 1984 Lincoln Town Car Cartier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have undone the two nuts on the inside of the door and although the door
handle moves around a lot, I can't remove it from the door itself.
I can see there is a rod attached to it, can't see where though and this rod
goes down to the door lock but I cannot see how it attaches to the lock as it
is behind the window glass runner.
Any hints, tips or magic moves would be appreciated
thanks
Peter

Never mind. For those that are interested, you have to reach way up inside the door to reach the point where the rod fits into the door handle. Unclip the plastic clip and release the rod. Door handle is now free to come out after the nuts are removed. Assembly is the reverse but more difficult.
