Door Handle Removal. A trick?
Ive got a 71 and I cant get inner door handle trim piece off. It doesnt have a screw inside I can see like the one shown and I have pryed on the piece and dont want to crack anything. And its chrome, not black like the one shown.

What gives, how do I pop this off?

as I recall, take out that screw, then pry out the black plastic cover which indents into the door, to the left of the screwdriver in the pic above. Behind that cover there is a screw which hold the handle to the door. As I recall...

Im pretty sure there is no screw on mine. I think the older ones are different.

you still have to pry out the semi-circle black plastic piece. work a small flat screwdriver under the edge at the front, and gently pry it back and out. it should come out, and reveal the other screw underneath.

Yup, the piece he is referring to is a cover that fits into the recess where your fingers go when you grab the handle. You pry the cover out, and that will reveal the screw.

So Ill be able to see a screw between the handle trim piece and the door panel. Right?

Thanks guys

There is sometimes a small plastic cover over the screw that holds the black plastic piece to the door. Use a small screwdriver to pry the cover out, then remove the screw behind it. The cover will come off.

Heck, I don't have a pic of the early assembly handy.

OK, Kursed. See the concave part where your fingers go when you are opening the door? On your car, there is a plastic cover over that whole concave part. Look for a seam near the edge of the guard, there, where it bends inward. The cover over the concave part will pry out, and reveal the screw. Remove the screw, and the guard can be pulled out.

Ah, now I get it. Thanks guys. With the bad lighting in the garage I couldnt tell the black platic insert from the chrome.

Thanks guys for your help. I have many more question to come.
