  • Door Locking Stick Caps - how to fit?

    Hi all! I purchased some nicer looking metal door lock stick caps for my Grand Sport hatchback, but cannot seem to take off the ones that are factory fitted...I've tried twisting, pulling, unscrewing...all with pliers even and nothing is making it budge!

    Has anyone done this before, and if so, how please? Perhaps those who have seen inside the door panel too could provide some helpful info...

    E.g. of what I am trying to do is steps below:

    They just screw off, some are tight though.

            anti clockwise.

            they'll be mega tight - i had to virtually crush mine using vise grips - pliers didn't budge mine at all.

                  Can second that, pliers are no good. Either water pump pliers set to correct size or some vice grips, mole grips whatever they called in your neck of the woods .

                      I got these ones, they're flat topped, looks a bit more classy imo:

                      I did it guys, I got them off with pliers! My thumb's aching now from the strain but all 4 are changed and boy does it look nice. Will upload photos later.
