    hi, ive found a set of chrome interior handles in my garage - i had the door card off and took the handle off.... how the hell do you get the handle part out????

    it seems to be held in with a pin, with a slot at one end. no clips and no screw - is it just a taper fit?

    Have you got a picture of the area? If its just a pin, try knocking it out from the bottom with a hammer and a thin screwdriver or similar.

    Otherwise you could always try RealOEM

    Is part No. 7 on this diagram what you have to replace? Real OEM - Door Handle Mechanism?

    Hmm, looks like it comes as a single unit then from the factory. Have you tried tapping the pin out yet? Normally things like this slide out with a couple of gentle/moderate taps

    - Sorry mate, thats about as good as I can offer... Can anyone advise the OP on this with an e36?

    Also now that its broken anyway, cant you pick it apart to find out how it all fits together?
