Question about 2007 GMC Yukon XL Denali

07 Yukon Interior door handle peeling

Interior door handle "chrome" is flaking off and actually cut my wife's figure. We are beyond the 3/36 and would like to know if anyone has a DIY for the replacement of front passenger side door handle. The big question is whether the door panel needs to come off and/or any special tools necessary for the repair?

2007 yukon exterior door handle paint is pealing off. GM told me that I should have waxed them more often. Does anyone have any experience with paint not adhering to plastic door handle?

If there REALLY is a requiremert to wax the door handes (and I severly doubt it) let the dealer show you where it is noted in the owners manual. He will not be able to find it, I am sure. I am also sure you have no way of wining this battle, considering the 07 Yukon is long out of warantee. The best you can do is tell hi he's full of **** and a liar. BUT!! if he's the only dealer in town, don't do that. You may need him someday.

this is one ***** off a job but with a little patience it can be done.first disconnect the battery located on the right side in the boot. next remove the door skin buyremoving the screw from the interior door handle and then working clockwise pry the clips off gently and then in an upward motion remove the skin.oops...dont forget to disconnect and remove the electric window control panel and disconnect the light at the bottom of the step is to gently unbolt the side airbag and let it hang gently.{be carefull
] next slowly peel the black foam from the door where you will see the back of the door will then see a slider which should be black which you need to slide toward the cockpit about an order to do this you will have to lift a certain part of it to clear a little plastic latch.once this has moved you can remove the handle from the outside of the car..i know it sounds like its gonna take hours as i just did it myself for the first time but if you know your way around a car then it should be a piece off ****.good luck.
