    Dumb question but how do I remove? Is there a "U" type clip on the post of each like Chevrolet or some other method of securing?

    My Scout 67 800 has a rolled pin which has to be punched out in order to remove the handle. Not sure, offhand, what the pin's size is. If a PO has jammed a nail or some dam thing in there it may be difficult to remove it so take a look before you try hammering it out.

    Besides what Don said. There is a spring loaded trim ring just behind the handles that needs to be pushed back with a couple flat screw drivers so you can see the pin in the hole. Then you can get to it with a correct small diameter punch. Don may jump all over me but I have even used a nail as a punch. Now days I have the correct size punch and it works much better.

    On my 68 pickup the rubbery trim piece was so hard I ended up breaking a couple of them trying to pry them back. The pins weren't very tight fitting either, I was expecting a tight fit so I smacked the first one with the punch pretty hard and the pin went shooting out, lost forever.

    I had nails driven in tight and then bent over...which was no fun!

    I have spent time looking for those pins after I knocked them out of the holes. They like to get lost! At least with the nails, you don't care where they go unless one ends up in a tire.

    HA!! True. I ended up just replacing all my pins, (all 2 of them, since I lost another one....) with cotter pins. I only had 1 of the plastic trim pieces anyway, so I just left it off too, since the cotter pin got in the way.

    Looking at ebay of door handles and I see the pin hole so I understand the attachment to the inner rod. The rubbery/plastic between the handle and the door, I assume it needs to be 'pryed' towards the handle side in order to see the pin?

    Thanks everyone

    You will figure out which way to pry it when you get there. I always pry away from the handle though.

    I use hitch pin clips. Easy to install/remove without tools, and hard to lose. What trim piece? :)

    On my doors I have the vinyl door cards and a trim ring. NA if you have the sheet metal only doors.
