I wanted to replace the original plastic lock pulls in my 2000 1.8T with a pair of aluminum ones. I assumed the originals simply turned off counterclockwise. After applying a fair amount of pressure I stopped for fear of breaking something. Is there a trick; go ahead and force it; any ideas? :confused:

Thanks

Get a pair of pliers and wrap some electrical tape around the plastic pins...then squeeze, turn, and pull. They will come off, there is some sort of adhesive that is applied to them. Afterwards, simply screw the new metal ones and you will be set. Good luck.
