Door handle question

Hi guys.
I have the newer push button handle doors and one handle is coming loose.

Can anyone tell me how the handle is held on and how to fix it......

Do I have to remove the door card to get at it?

Is glue out of the question?

Take it to a body shop and pull the card and have the screw tightened. You might want to go to a rover dealership and get some new tees. PM me for further info.

You have to remove door inside panel, put a drop of locktite on screw before tightening.

Cheers

The widow crank is the hardest part to remove. It's held it by a horse shoe clip of wire. Use a screw driver to spread the crank away from trim ring & look in there, you'll see it. There is a special tool to push it off but you can "hook it" with something and pull it off too. You'll probably break a perimeter plastic pin or two due to the weak design of the pin.

Look at my post here to see where these "pins" are around the perimeter (white spots/recepticles)

You have to remove the door lock plunger surround (slides up), the inner door handle (two screws), and the latch release surround (1 screw). It is about a 10 minute job to remove.

You can get them as cheap as $4 each. One is a Door Panel Removal Tool the other a Window Crank Removal Tool.

You can get away without the crank one but I highly recommend the other - it will make it much easier and help avoid any potential breakage of the panel.

I was a locksmith for 20 years and had the bothersome task of being inside many door panels to remove locks. GM's are absolutely the worst, you could always count on getting your arm/hand cut-up on their sharp sheet metal edges. (end of rant)

Anyway, the silver tool is the only tool I used. The small end of the tool is VERY effective at being slid between the panel & then pry sideways to pop off the panel from the little clips or barbed studs that hold the panel to the door metal.

I've always liked chewing gum for reattaching door handles. As I recall, Hubba Bubba works the best, but others might have different opinions.

In reality, these guys are right on. Removing the door card is easy and then you just need to replace the screw holding that end of the handle on. Some threadlock on the screw would be a good idea for reassembly.

Strange that the drawings/instructions don't show how to remove the window crank handle, the hardest part.
