|I am looking to remove the exterior door handles in preparation for painting my JH. No problem detaching the handles themselves from the door, but how does one disconnect the operating rod that attaches it to the latch, so it can be totally removed. I see there is a pin and push fastener where the rod attaches to the latch. Does this push fastener need to be pryed off and then replaced? Looks like it would be almost impossible to put it back (inside the door). I am sure some of you have done this before, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, John.
