O.K. so what is the secret to removing the window winding handels and the door opening lever. The more detailed the answer the better, as I am new to taking bits of my TR4 apart! What do you mean you guessed!!

Door handles and winder winders both fit the same way. Push the black plastic escutcheon, that is the black domed circular piece that the handles touch, towards the door, i.e. open a gap between the handle and the esctcheon.

 

You will see a short pin about an eigth on inch in diameter, and about half an inch long, push this out with any small diameter drift, say an electricians screwdriver, or something similar. push the pin all the way out, pull your drift back and the handle will fly off, its got a large diameter spring inside teh door panel.

As all good manuals say reassembly is a reverse of dismantling.

For remantling putting that little pin back in can be very frustrating. I cheat and use a pop rivet of appropraite diameter. Just loosen the pin first and then use it as a handle to put rivet head in to hole, then slide the pin out. Easy peasy.
