Question about Volvo S60
What's the trick to removing an outer handle on the driver door of a 2012 volvo 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.

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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door.. It sounds like the linkage connecting to the outside handle may have come off or broken

there is a pin in the door handle might have broke off there are two 10 mm nuts that will release the handle but you have to take the door panels off and remove it any local junk yard should have it or can order it for you

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the 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 you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can disconnect the linkage connecting to the outer handle and remove the bolts securing the outer handle on

Remove plastic plug on the inside of door there is 10 mm hole use a hooked pick set pick put through the hole and pull the plastic cir clip towards the back of the door that will release the smaller part of the outer handle then the handle itself can be taken out.this is so simple but so deceiving the actual cir clip is hard to notice because of all the plastic **** on the inside backing plate the cir clip is just on the inside of hole look hard it is 2mm thick & 20mm high (black plastic) place point of pick in between backing plate & cir clip hook it and pull back the front door is based on the same principle but is a lot easier
