Call me slow...
I just found the answer to my question below posted by Bazzle here: http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r170...k-removal.html
How do you get the door handle (driver side, SLK230 1999) to come out of the door so you can hold it in your hand like the nice picture in the thread above?
I am in the middle of replacing my door lock actuator ($179 part!) and it looks like I need to remove the door handle lock cylinder to replace the lock pneumatic actuator....
Do I pry open a hidden plastic door from the outside view of the handle? Are there screws that keep the handle fastened that must be removed from the side of the door - or even inside the door?
thanks so much!
