    Afternoon all,

    I've got a 5 door and the paint on the rear door handles is flaking off for some reason. Has anyone had a similar issue?

    Is it possible to remove the door handles fairly easily to give them a sand down and paint?

    I might have imagined it but I'm sure I saw an article somewhere that the outer handle cover can be removed by sliding a pin out leaving the door handle still on the door. I've had a look at mine but don't seem to be able to see how. Any ideas?

    I have the same problem all i have done is touched them in it's unlikely you will be able to match the paint given it's right in the door
