This is not a job for the faint hearted. You will need a lot of patience and dextrous fingers. Remove the interior door panels...look into the handle area and spot the 3 small nuts that hold the handles to the door skin..remove and save... locate operating rod clips, release, ease handle out from door, locate loom connectors for lock barrel heater and lock control, they are secured from being trapped by the window in a small clip...... disconnect and remove handle.

Reassembly is reverse of removal plus a little more fiddling about !.

XJ40 door handles are made out of a very brittle metal that breaks easily. On the inside of the handle is a protruding arm into which is inserted a rod that is pushed down to release the latch when you pull up on the handle. The arm on your door handles is broken. You can buy rear handles on Ebay. Take care to get the proper year. 1988-1990 handles are smaller than 1991-1994 handles. The good news is that the rear handles are interchangable left to right, as they have the little arms at both sides of the handle.
