Just picked myself up a set of four, brand new, from ebay for $110. I thought that was pretty fair, been chasing a set for ages.

Anybody installed these before? Is there much to it?

if they're anything like the ef/el ones its just a matter of taking out one bolt which holds the whole door handle assembly in, and lifting it off the door handle rod as you take it out.

Wat series falcon you got. Because if it is a S2/3 then its very simple. But if you got a S1 its just a little but more complicated (very fiddly). There used to be on www.aufalcon.com a tech document on how to change them but don't know if its this there. Once you have done one and you figure out the process then the rest is easy

It isn't hard its just very fidelity and you need patient to get the springs in the right place. I have done it ot to long ago just didn't think of writing up a document do to the already being one.
If you want i could tell you how to do it, but it will be without pictures. Also that tech document on the website is not there anymore, since they changed the site around it is now gone.

Yer no problems it will all be worth it in the end makes the car look so much better. Also you should look at getting the AU LTD headlight switch and the power window switch there in woodgrain. They just make the car look so much better.

Yeah would love to get those, as am slowly (but steadily) upgrading the interior. Can never find the bits though! Wreckers in Perth are absolutely useless, and a lot of them don't seem to take me seriously being a chick :x

eBay is good for those item just sometimes they are hard to find. I have got the same car as you just i have a burgundy one. I have also put the BA LTD chrome mirror scalps. They look nice.
