Left Door Inside Panel and Handle

NOTE: My lock pin broke off at some point during shipping. Make sure yours is in place, and if not, check the packaging! We will glue it back on shortly.

Steps 12.1

Fit the post of the Left Door Handle into the matching notch of the Left Door Handle Mechanism, as shown:

Slide the Left Door Handle up through the matching slot of the Left Door Inside Panel from the rear, as shown:

Step 12.4

Secure the Left Door Handle Mechanism to the back of the Left Door Inside Panel with two (2) PS04 screws:
