    from memory, you don't have to take the door panel off to just replace the handle, I think theres an access hole with a torx screw to remove the rear cap & then the handle slides & hooks in.. realy hard to explain it, you just gotta kinda see how it's done by trying it, the front hooks in first, then the rear & then the whole handle slides foward a bit & is locked in place by reistalling the rear cap. if you have tech package then you have to open the panel for the harnes connector for that though...

    I think this is what he is refering to.

    I had to do an Escutcheon Mod on my baby because someone tried to break in her...

    This is the end results and the pics I just took right now..

    Here is where you will need to get into to take off the Escutcheon and then maybe the handle

    yes, good pics.... you just take that torx screw off, pop out the escutcheon and cover, push the handle towards the front of the car and lift it off.

    your fx looks so mean all de-chromed, the wheels look sick too, I'm not crazy about that wheel treatment with the stockers, but those look real sweet :D
