It's funny.....I STILL have people that tell me I'm wasting my time replacing timing chain and chain rails at 100,000 mile intervals.  I suppose the joke is on them, huh?

On other forum someone was adamant that chain never had to be replaced because there was no specific literature that said to replace it every X miles. Insisted that you should just keep changing offset cam keys.

I'm not surprised. Most overlook the W116 all of the time, and many aren't even aware of it's existence.

RUMB, it's a front left door handle.  See the keyhole in it? 

Also, there is a set screw at the forward side of the handle, and the door panel has to come off to gain access to the screw that holds the door handle tight to the door.

remove door handle from car and see if a pin is missing, or buy a replacement. on the side of door near handle is a oval lug, remove and there are 2 allen screws,  then slide handle forward and it will come out of the door.

is it a front or rear door handle.

also where in world are you and what model car - please put in your user profile.

I used to think my 928 was a big car....until I parked it next to a Maserati Ghibli.

I am now partially in charge of the company that took on my case of Concours restorations of my 2 W116's, here in Taiwan.
We are looking for 2 foreigners, experienced or apprentice mechanics.

-Male or female, must speak some English.
-Must have 5+ years experience in the field of car repair.
-sheet metal specialists may also apply
-Looking for people with a good eye, and love for vehicles, when it comes to taking cars apart, and putting them back together.
-Knowledge of EPC and other data bases is a bonus.
-Job requires no Chinese, but offers an opportunity to learn some.

In return they offer a soft landing in Taiwan
-pick-up from airport to your personal furnished apartment.
-Flights and transport all paid for.
-Long-term guidance in English as to how to get by on a daily bases.
-Free mobile phone
-Free scooter
-Free use of car when available
-Weekends off
-9 to 6 hour-days with long lunch break
-an important say in purchase of specific tools
-an environment where the gentle owner speaks excellent English
-an environment where rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous is a given.
-a chance to work with super cars, classic cars and very mediocre cars.
-a country, renowned for being jam-packed with stunning, skinny, financially independent women that love foreigners.
-Low-cost holidays on around-the-corner white beaches with palm treas and more of such skinny women.
-a chance to excel and shine in an area where, in Europe, you would not even get noticed for.

Payment will be ample for both daily living and saving money
With the excessive cost of living in Europe,it will not be enough to be sending buckets of money home
Considering the cost of living is half that of Europe, you will be comfortable enough, though
What the future will bring, is to be seen, but, me, Stan, the Ohlins distributor here will vouch for all correct treatment, especially if you decide to return home, and expect all expenses paid, as promised.

Right now, in the workshop:
Jaguar E-type, 2x
Jaguar XK140
W116, 2x
BMW 2002, 2x
BMW 3.0 CSI, 2x

For now,  this this is  the only restoration shop in Taiwan aspiring to meet foreign standards

Please, anyone, if you know anyone, or if you are the guy/girl, let me know, and I will take care of everything that comes after that.
