[SOLVED] repair back handle

556 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  enrico

my 2011 Armada back door handle is broken:

Bumper Automotive exterior Fixture Auto part Window

I got a new one ( XtremeAmazing Rear Tailgate Door Handle for Armada 2004-2015 : Automotive ) and I am trying to install it.

This is what I am seeing inside the back compartment:

Car Tire Vehicle Wheel Cloud

Hood Automotive tire Bumper Automotive design Motor vehicle

Hood Automotive lighting Grille Automotive design Bumper

it looks like a white filling taped with some black adhesive… shall I remove it?

or can i just unscrew the door lock and the handle would come off?

gott pry the clips off. there are a bunch of them and you may end up breaking the plastic clip thingys. you can get some from the dealer or online like fleabay or amazon for example.

the door finisher on the inside is held on by clips. they are difficult to remove. i did it once when i installed the camera housing style handle many years ago.
