I am trying to remove the passenger door handle from my 86 Spider. The original one is missing the pull lever and is scratched an pitted so I am installing a reconditioned one. I have removed the three nuts on the inner side that hold the entire mechanism to the door and I also removed the single nut that connects the pull handle mechanism to the door latch. the whole handle unit is loose but the darn thing is slightly too big to remove from the door. Any tricks to getting it out? The shop manual has been completely worthless on this one.
