Interior window and door handle removal

Post by Root Beer Stand » Thu Jul 17th, 2008 5:15

Wanting to take a couple door panels off a 49 special 4door for templates.
For the life of me I cannot get these buggers off.
The manual says use Tool C-533 with a picture.
Now where do i find the tool or specs on building one?
Thanks in advance!

Just push the panel in by hand in the area near the door handle. There is just a little slip in pin that holds the handle on. You can take a nail or a small punch and push it out. The handle should slip right off ..... just be sure to save the pin. There will be a spring behind the entire mess and you should have the trim ring (escutcheon) as well. It reassembles in reverse order .... spring, escutcheon, handle w/pin.

I find that a hook tool is very handy.

Worked like a charm! Special tool my behind! LOL
Have 2 new panels cut; covered and installed...They are temps untill I get the time and gumshun to make some real nice ones or have them made.
They look a LOT better than the rags that were there!

I find myself saying that a lot. Seems like they needed a special tool for just about everything. Took me a while to find a puller that worked with the tapered axles and drums. Found it at JC Whitney.
