    ? How hard is it to change out the door handles. In my quest to loose some chrome I want to swap out the door handles to a black set. Any advice on hoe to change them out?

    Thanks for any help.

    Do the locks stay and you keep your orginial keys for the doors?

    Hello,

    I have white door handles now, but would be interested in buying your chrome ones if you decide to change.

    Thanks,

    pull your door panel off and leave the winder up

    there will be a black plug in the top LH corner. One of the handle bolts are behind it the other is a few inches to the right

    remove those bolts and pull the handle out, take off the linkages. while the handle is pulled out there is a c clip holding the lock cylinder in. take it off and dont let it fly away. install the c clip on your new handle before putting it in the door. that way your cylinder will slide rite in. leave the linkage hooked up to the lock cyl. i use a pry bar from inside the door to push the cylinder back in the handle

    Mike's got it. I just changed mine to chrome. I ran the heater for a while to make it easier to pull off the door panel. :glasses:
