    drivers door handle

    Hi.
    I have today noticed when cleaning the car that the drivers door handle cover is rubbing the paintwork above the handle. is the any way to loosen this.

    2008 facelift a3 black.

    thanks

    It maybe poorly fitted handle plate, there's a retaining slider/latch behind that can only be moved by lifting the handle fully up & with a thin tool slide it across so the handle plate can come of, its a pita to do sometimes.

    Any pics of both drivers/passengers handles to see if there's any major differences in fitment, pics side by side would be good.
