The pin had broken in one of my sliding door handles. I've removed the handle and bought a new, stronger, metal pin from eBay.de.

I can't for the life of me figure out how to remove the old pin however?

Had a good search around the web but only found instructions for a Berlingo. Can anyone help? :confused:

Not sure about an 806, could it be a rivet that needs drilling out? On 807 it looks like the handle clips into position. Might be best to buy a s/h handle but I seem to remember they were painted? You are probably the first to try and get one apart.

It depends which type of door handles you have, there are two, only that moves front to back and the other thats pulls outward from the car. In either case, the handle ia riveted on and a bit of a pain to work with.

Thanks for the answers chaps.

Actually, it turned out to be easier than I thought.

Once I'd got the door handle off, the pin can be pulled straight out. There are two plastic lips in the housing that make it appear impossible to remove but the plastic is flexible. I dunked the handle in boiling water and then prised the lips apart slightly. Then, using locking pliers I pulled the pin out.

Only half came out as it was broken. I had to knock the rest out from the backside with a drift which was tricky as the lug for the mounting nut was in the way but I used a bent screw and tapped it gently til it came out.

Refitting was the reversal of removal (© Haynes ) but I'd taken pictures of how the spring loaded levers were mounted on the pin before dismantling. Also, the replacement pin had one flange that was too big so I had to dremmel it a little to fit. All went back together easily and back in the door. Which now opens from the outside again - at last!

806 sliding door external lock pin replacement

The external handles for the sliding doors are not riveted. To detach the handle, remove the inner door lining, and pull back the grey sound-proofing material which is to the left, above the inner door handle. You will find a hole, through which you can insert a 10mm nut driver (on an extension or a flexible shaft). Place it onto the nut and unscrew the nut, taking care not to drop the nut into the door.
There are link rods attached to the external handle. Take some pictures or make a drawing of the arrangement, before detaching them, so the external handle can be removed...
