Lower hole in the door jamb loosten allen screw until the cap comes off. Upper hole there is a #20 torx slightly down and inboard of the hole, you need a really long torx bit and pull the handle out slightly. It also helps to pull weatherstrip loose so you can see it.

The sliding door on the passenger side is stuck closed and will not unlock either manually or electonically. I have the panel off and the black plastic pulled down, but am unable to get the electical...


good day, well sir your so close from opening the doors. if you find the metal wiring that connects to the door lock then you have to force it a little to let loose. Its gonna be a little tight coz the electronic lock is still connected. if its too tight try removing the steel wires from the power lock connection then try letting the steel wires again. hope this helps and have a nice day.

How to remove rear outer door handle


Though I am not entirely familiar with the audi vehicle, mostly when trying to remove the outside door handle, you need to first remoce, the inside panel where the handel is located. Once this has been done, look to where the door handle comes to the inside of the door from the outside of the car. It should have some sort of a clip/ pin/ screw or other fastening mechanism, which holds it to the car from the inside. Remove that fastening mechanism and the handle should come off.

Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.

How do i remove the outer rear door handle on a 07 audi Q7


Ok
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
