I went into a Kragen autoparts thinking there was no way they had the right tool, but Ill give them a shot.
I purchased a door handle removal tool and IT WORKED.
My god, that tool made my life so much easier. I had six handles off within 20mins. No frustration, no swearing, I was stupid to even attempt this without the tool.
Thanks everyone for your help.
If there a tool to put those clips back on?
