The SXS handle is completely loose and off on the bottom ~ how to connect it back to the clip that is still in the door? I have tried pushing it in but that didn't work. My next option was going to be GLUE.
Answer Dolores, You don't need to use glue, It's a bit tricky, but do able. You will need an old credit card or putty knife and a screw driver. To Remove: 1. Flex the handle away from the door panel. Simultaneously place door handle removal card underneath the base of the lower handle. Insert the card to the line or until it stops. 2. Grasp the lower part of the handle firmly and lift up to remove.To Install:
1. The handles are to be oriented. 2. Align front mount door handle clip with the door tabs.3. Ensure the handle clips are positioned slightly above the door tabs.4. Rotate the handle so that the handle is flat against the door. 5. Push the handle down against the upper door tab just enough to allow it to hang unsupported.6. Align bottom of handle with lower door tab. Press upper handle end to door surface and firmly grasp lower end of handle. Gently slide handle upward until bottom of handle settles on door surface, then reverse direction, sliding downward to almost engaging tab with clip. 7. Grasp the handle firmly and slide down until it clicks. The audible click indicates fastening clips are securely interlocked. (This information is also available in your owners use and care manual). Once the handle are removed, you can tighten the clip mounting screws with a screwdriver (you could also use some "LOC TITE" on the screws to help lock them in place. Thanks and Good Luck.
