    Better u send to workshop bro, if u make a simple mistake u have to remove the hole door panel...
    If u're good enough there's a trick to replace it without remove the door handle. It only requires a long 2" philip head screw driver, 1 ( not sure size 10 mm / 12 mm ) allen key, 1 bright enough torch light and good skill in hole digging.
    The hole is locate at the side of the door.

    my advise better send it to workshop. If u accidentally unfasten the bolt too much u'll get 10x more hassle !!!

    i have successfully changed the handle my self.. i did not remove the screw instead i cracked the old handle and removed it.. the new one fits well.. the difficult part was removing the old one.. the new one just slides into place..

    erm no.. i left the sensitivity as original.. i think the difficult part here is removing the old handle.. the new handle took 10sec to put in..

    its like this la.. i tried removing it properly but it took forever.. then i resorted to just cracking the old handle and removing it.. cause installing the new one is a very simple procedure.. just put the latch into the socket, and cue the handle in a angle into the door.. hope it helps..
