You should be able to take out the plastic piece that lines the inside of the trunk. To do that you have to unscrew the screw in the grabber/handle, then pull the clips connected to the plastic out of the holes You look back at where the back side of the handle is, and you will see about 5 nuts you have to loosen to take the handle off, then you will have to pull out the clip at the end. To install the other handle, just put the handle on and reattach the nuts. Its not very hard and takes about 15 minutes.

you have to pull up on the handle a little more and it'll open... mine has the same problem - you'll get used to it

Sorry I'm a bit late replying to this post. I sent you the same link Satoshi posted for the install, but it looks like you've already gotten that accomplished.

Anyway, as you have also figured out (and as Sultan said), you have to lift on that metal "wire" mechanism inside when doing the install so that there will be the correct amount of tension and it will open the door properly.

Last, your car looks awesome eek thumbsup Nice job!!

Oh yeah, one more thing, if anyone is interested in these, I do not have any. The one I had for sale was used, and as far as I know they are not in production anymore. Sorry! frown
