This has been bust on my Ti for over a year and it is a common problem so I finally decided to sort it out.
Just under £30 plus £8 UPS P&P from Naples http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3508168352...84.m1497.l2649
seems decent value.
I'd read it was hard getting into the door's innards so I took a few pictures on my phone. I appreciate they're poor quality but it was originally for me in case I forgot what I'd removed. I was surprised how relatively easy it was tbh.
Here's my "how to" guide.
1. Undo the 3 Torx screws on the door closure holding the locking mechanism in place.
2. Lift up the rubber in the door pull, undo the Torx screw. Lift out the piece and disconnect the electric window switch. http://i426.photobucket.com/albums/p...m/IMAG0053.jpg
3. Prise off the cover and undo the Torx screw behind the door handle.
4. Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the door trim.
5. There are two more Torx screws to remove from under the door pull trim you removed earlier. http://i426.photobucket.com/albums/p...m/IMAG0054.jpg
6. Use a broad, thin piece of metal to ease out the trims clips and ease the door trim out and then up from the window seal area. Feed the door handle through the hole.
7. Disconnect the little speaker.
8. You should be able to put the trim to one side and start undoing the 10mm screws holding the metal panel. http://i426.photobucket.com/albums/p...m/IMAG0058.jpg
9. Remove the two 10mm nuts in a vertical line roughly in the middle of the door panel. One shown here near the top, the other is below and to the right of the main speaker. http://i426.photobucket.com/albums/p...m/IMAG0059.jpg
They hold the window riser frame to the panel. Then ease the panel away using the broad metal bar - an old bike spanner in my case - to break the sealing putty.
10. Ease the brittle looking white plastic retaining clip out of the hole at the bottom of the window glass. You should have enough movement to get at the lock mechanism.
11. Disconnect the electrics. Release the cable from the outside handle by just twisting it through the elongated hole in the actuating arm. http://i426.photobucket.com/albums/p...m/IMAG0062.jpg
Flip open the flap and ease out the cable for the inside handle.http://i426.photobucket.com/albums/p...m/IMAG0063.jpg
Free the two push fit black plastic arms that hold it in place.
12. Done. Screw the mechanism back through the door to hold it in place and retrace your steps.
Wonderful! I can now open the driver's side rear door from the outside again!
