I'm trying to Reinstall an exterior Front passenger door

Customer Question

I'm trying to Reinstall an exterior Front passenger door handle onto 2006 Passat. I install the front part and push handle back to the left slightly but I can't get it to go in behind the metal tabs of the door latch where it belongs.

If you open the door, you will see that there is a pair of screws there. Loosening one of them will allow you to remove the non-moving "thumb button" part of the handle. You insert the handle leafing edge first, slip the rear end into place, then install the thumb button to hold the handle in place
