the wire goes through a tab that holds it to the inside frame of the door. You have to pull that tab out of the hole, then you can get better leverage to unplug the harness. I believe the plug/harness sits right on the actual tab.

yea, that's why you have to pry it off the frame, and then unplug it.

Hey xweapon, mine is magnetic black also, i took my handles to a local collision center and gave them the paint code. And the paint matches pretty good. Definitely a good move for the black Z's.

Thanks. Did you have them paint it? or did you just get the paint from them? If I remember correctly, the paint code is G41.

that sounds about right, but you can find the paint code on the sticker in the door jam. But no, i took the handles to them and had them paint it, was around $100. But i think that price will vary greatly depending where you go.

Last night I was reattaching my door handles after I finished pairing them satin black to match the rest of the DIY painting I did this week. While installing
I dropped a bolt down the door frame and can't find it with a magnet or anything. Anybody have an suggestions? I can buy more bolts of needed but two rolling around on my door frame doesn't sound to appealing.

Thanks

^ Lol, I dropped my 10mm socket down there. I don't feel like ripping the door apart trying to find it. I haven't heard it rattle or anything so I just pretend it never happened.

Yeah what MJB said. Or just turn your radio up and step on the gas. That's what I always do. I've always said its not a custom mod until you have extra parts laying around.

Hell, when I had my civic I would take the dash apart all the time, somehow I ended up with more screws out of the dash than what originally came with the car. The whole dash was being held together by like 1 1/2 screws. LIKE A BAWS.
