For a while now my RHR door won't open from the inside or outside. The handle on the outside is just floppy same with the inside.

I've tried taking the doors off the hinges but the latch won't open to take it off all the way.

How can I open it or get the door off to fix the handles? I really don't what to damage the door too much.

Cheers
Brett

Can't do that as the screws are around the bottom and sides of the trim so can't get to them

It's a ed as well

seeing as you have the hinges off .... pull door out as far as possible to get to the door screws [don't reef it too far] may need to remove seatbase, but just see how ya go first

It wasn't moving very far out to even do that.

I've been told to smash the outside handle and do it that way but don't really want to do it that way
