Default Manual door lock reassembly

I'm trying to reassemble the maual door lock on the drivers side and I can't believe the way it was designed. Am I missing something. I can't reinstall that plastic orange strip lock pull before I reinstall the splastic cover for the door handle. It seem as though I have to reinstall them as a complet unit, and my hands are to big to finaggle them both. What the he**.

Mechanical issues in the lounge Frank?

Put the back piece in first.. pull the lock level forward..sneak the back end of the plastic in..then click the front on.

That'* the way I thought it would go but even preassembly it won't slide through.

You kinda have to do them all at once. Hold the lock lever in place, slide the whole thing into place, then sanp the lock lever onto the wire, and then the screws....

It'd be a lot easier to show you than talk about it....

BillBoost37, thanks for the quick reply and my appologise for posting in the wrong thread. For the life of me, it won't go as you had mentioned.

MOS95B, with the size of my hand, I have up with all the cramping it was causing so I felt it was cheaper to use a file and trim down the plastic where is wasn't going to be visable rather then spend a couple of days in a pshyciatric ward. Only problem now is I lost the metal cllp that holds the plactic cover for the drivers side side view mirror, so I need to hold it in place with tape. And to think I never solve the original problem which was the door panel was flapping when you used the handle to close it due to worn out pastic catches.

J Wikoff, thanks for the move.
