71KW door locks and handle
Print Topic | Close Window

I have the twist door handles on my 71 900a. The locks have ceased to function and I would like to replace the handle. I have have been practicing on an old door before I totally demolish the doors on my working truck. Good thing, because I can't figure out how to get the mechanism out of the door, or how to get the handle out. Is there a screw or clip I've missed? The handle maybe is retained by a clip or maybe it is rusted in there? For the lock, I think the tumbler should come out first, but I don't see how. The inside skin is off and every thing else disconnected, visible screws etc. I don't see the bfh working in this case. Maybe I was aggravated enough not to see the obvious. Appreciate the help. Tom
