Need a little help "Door Handles"

[B]Anyone know the first step in removing the door handles? Not sure theres a post on here explaining how, i looked around but no luck. I want to install a small red light behind the door handle for some lighting effect. Thanks

Yea it's easy don't do what I did I had to end up taking the door of turning it upside down and shaking it to get the screw out. Open the door you'll see a black circle take it out and there will be a star screw in there pull on the handle and hold it and turn the screw after afew turn the handle will be stuck in the out position Now grab the little piece of the handle and pull lightly and keep turning the screw until it slips out once it does don't turn the screw anymore or it will fall out. After that comes off pull the door handle and slide to the outside of the door and the latch will come undone the pull towards you and wiggle the other in out. To put back in do all this backwards. Hope this helped Im on an iPad so I can't post pics or I would

I wouldn't suggest doing it the way in that tutorial its more work then it should be That plastic should not be popped off while it's still on the car like that. You could break the clips. Plus if you do it the way I said you don't have to pull that metal piece on the inside of the door cause it's stuck in that position already

The only lighting mod for door handles I've seen are for outside inside would be impossible since door handles are Chrome and solid all the way through

But you could insert a small LED inside on the door panel that acts like a courtesy light inside just behind grab handle
