I wish to remove the timber trim in the rear doors of my S1 Bentley so they can be refinished. I am seeking advice as to how to remove the grab handles that appear to be attached to the door frame through the timber trim allowing its removal. I have looked at the workshop manual and it does not describe how the grab handles are removed. Any advise as how to remove the timber trim on the rear doors of an S1 Bentley or Silver Cloud 1 would be appreceiated.

Kind Regards

Craig,

You will have to remove the leather door cards first. Once they are out of the way, you need to reach up underneath the wood trim with a thin open ended spanner (either 7/16" or 1/2" I can't remember which) and undo the two nuts which hold the handle in position. It is a very fiddly job as you may only be able to turn the nuts one flat at a time.
Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Chris

Thanks Chris,
I can see the bolts, they look difficult.
I'll keep you posted.

Kind Regards

They are 7/16 and I had to grind down a open end box tool to fit up in the slot.
