Safari/Astro broken rear door handleYou will need: an electric drill, 1/4" drill bit, 2- 1/4" x 2" bolts, 2 flat washers, 2 lock washers and nuts or flat washers and lock nuts. When you move the handle aside you will see what looks like two rivets; these are the heads of the bolts holding the handle to the door. Carefully drill through these bolts, you may want to centre punch the heads first. These bolts are made of aluminum so the drilling isn't too hard. Once this is done the handle comes off and you can reach in and activate the push-rod that opens the door. With the door open, look on the inside edge of the door and you'll see a small plate with four Philip's screws holding it. Remove this and you can see inside to replace the handle. I was able to repair my handle dilling out the mount with the "cast in" bolt and fit another bolt to attach the pivoting part (bellcrank) to the handle. The main problem with this handle is that it is made of cast aluminum and thus wears out with frequent use. Install the handle with it's gasket using the 2" bolts making sure the pivot and push-rod work smoothly. A little grease at the contact points helps. To make opening the door easier, try pushing gently but firmly on the door just above the door handle as you pull on the handle to open it.
