Yeh you do, and the window frame and lifter :(

Looks a fiddle to be fair, will post the pictures later this evening.
 
as above full strip down
why you takeing them off
 
Really? Just to take the covers off? :(

A mate said you can prise them off.

Getting some work done so need all 4 handles off ;)
 
There's lots of pics to post as it's taking the door skins and window mechanism out, I'm happy to do it sometime if you're still going to go ahead with it?
 
i have seen posts about loose door handle covers that are put back on by using a credit card to slide a clip.
Lock the car car then pull the handle up and look for the clip.
 
to get the covers off doesn't need a full strip down but its a bit of an art.

You need to lock the car, lift the handle, the look / squint down the top / side of it. you will see two metal clips in a U shape.
Now you need to get something down the gap and push the clips towards the front of the car. Once they are forward, the handle should pull off from the top and drop down from the bottom clips.

Whats the idea? U unto things again?
 
Cheers for all the help guys, managed to unclip from the outside.

Progress pics coming soon ;)
