87 chevy truck interior door handle

I have a 1987 Chevy pickup and can't get the interior door handle off. Any tips would be great.

door handle removal

The handle has a "C" clip that holds it on. It's spring-loaded.

There's a special tool available at most auto parts stores designed to get the clip off. Look for the "Help" product line display and you should find one.

It looks like this:

hey smogtek, welcome to the forum, i never say hi right away, people make a few posts and disappear in a day or two(just like in work).

that tool works great, but it's just as easy to pull the handle slightly, so you can see the clip, and use a rag to pull the clip off.

to reinstall, put the clip into the handle first, then snap the handle onto the shaft, or you will be there all day trying to clip it on.

Thanks Mike.

I never use the tool, but you've got to be careful when improvising or you can destroy the door panel in the process.

I try to keep it simpler for the DIYer's 'cause as you know it can get overwhelming at times.

use a rag

Slide a rag between the door and handle and work it out.Push the door panel in a little to see the C clip so you know were the open end is.
