The door opening lever on the drivers door is pulling away…

Customer Question
The door opening lever...

The door opening lever on the drivers door is pulling away from the door and it won’t open. Looks like the lever and panel is coming apart. I could use a tip on how to remove the panel completely so I can re-fastened it with proper hardware. Any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Lincoln?

Town car 2009.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Town Car yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I will attempt this myself. oops it’s a 2005. I have 2.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Would a service manual provide disassembly instructions for this type of repair.

I did see an attached diagram but my 2005 lincoln town car did not have screws in all the locations shown, particularly on the bottom half of the panel. I fiddled around with it, broke several OEM plastic fasteners but in the end was able to put it back together. Its not "original" but is functioning adequately. I kind of "MacGyvered" it and its fine.
Not my usual approach but it will do for this old darling.Thanks.

Glad you were able to get it repaired.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
