THE DOOR CATCH HAS A DOUBLE "C" THAT HOLDS THE DOOR CLOSED. FIRST TAKE A SCREWDRIVER INSIDE THE "C". USING THE HANDLE ON THE INSIDE, PULL THE HANDLE AS IF YOU WERE OPENING THE DOOR AND AT THE SAME TIME, OPEN THE DOUBLE "C" WITH THE SCREWDRIVER. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA.

I had this too, on the left rear door handle cover. If you were careful, had a small and thin screwdriver (e.g. the kind you'd use on eyeglass hinges), you could bend back the tabs that hold the cover on and snap it into place. My mechanic told me the same thing, but told me if I were patient, the cover might snap on...saving me about 2 hours' labor cost. It worked!

    How do you remove outside handle on driver's door on 2012 s60


    On a S60, 2012, (drivers door) you first remove the plastic cover in under which you find the lock (with keyhole).
    secondly, open the door and remove the 15 mm diameter plastic cover near the handle. Insert a long torx scrwdriver(T25 ?) in the
    opening and while keeping the door handle "open" (this gives you the possibility to easily replace the handle later) Turn the torx until it stops
    (do not use much force). Now you can pull out the metallic lock, peer
    out the small white plastic under the door handle and pull out the handle. Do not turn the torx before you have replaced the handle.

    In the case of back door, you start by finding the hole for the torx under the doors rubber sealing near the door handle.

    How to install the right mirror for accura MDX 2008


    You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then remove the bolts securing the mirror to the door
