how do I replace the door handles on 2003 tiburon

Hey guys,

I bought some sweet looking chrome door handles for my tiburon and I'm wondering how the heck do I install these?

I figure I gotta take off the door panel, so does anyone have a quick guide on which screws to take off or what problems to avoid when I do this?

Thanks.

Ben

Chrome KDM Door Handles

It's a fairly easy mod. Especially after you do the first side. I've done it a few times now.

Just do it. I did it with my little brother. It took 45 minutes. The DIY is a good guy. Heres some tips-
  1. Be careful wiggiling the interior door panel off- I broke one of my tweeters off.
  2. To get the metal rod off the handle- TWIST the green clip upwards and then the rod will easily pull out sideways.
  3. When taking the handle off the door (from the outside), be easy and dont brake the little tabs. -look on the chrome ones and you will see what I mean.
  4. When taking the grab handle on the inside off, use a big screwdriver. The plastic is flimsy and can actually ?smudge? (its flimsy).

Once you go rotary, you never go back.
