    How far have you gotten on the rears? You need to take the door apart and remove the latching mechanism on the side of the door.

    Have to take the interior panel off of them.

    Here are the instructions for door handle replacement.

    No big deal man I have some rep to spare....:D

    Did you get the back handles on? Color-matched door handles is one of the first mods I did.

    how did this work out swapping out the rear handles....looked at the pdf do you need to remove the rear window to remove the rear handles? took 10 min for the front,the rears are a little more involved:(

    You don't need to remove the window, just the interior door panel.
