    how-to put drivers side key barrell into another handle?

    hi all,

    im getting my handles sprayed and have got a seperate set of handles so the originals are left on the car...

    anyway i have read all the how-to's etc, so it shouldnt be a problem

    except for when switching the drivers door handle... i would have to put the key barrell and mechanism from the original handle into the new sprayed handle...

    now how do you do that? as no one has mentioned this, only de-locking the handle completely which i dont fancy doing..

    sorry if that sounds complicated its kinda hard to explain!

    cheers
