I dont think that this is a common problem but my door handle paint is peeling off, not the entire handle only the inner portion, I can't blame it on the sun because it is the inner portion and it isn't that noticeable only if you look down, but it still bothers me. I could paint it myself and save money but does anyone know how the handle is installed. is it riveted in? I would like to get an idea of how to unassemble it before I'm caught by any surprises. Also I could buy chrome handles but does that just do the out-side portion or the inside as well.

Yep, it's a common problem. The handle unbolts from the back side. Of course, you'll have to remove the door panel, but after that it's not to hard to get too.

I noticed the same thing happening to mine. I blamed the wife because of her fingernails. I have thought about getting some black vinyl tape done on the back of the handles. That would be cheaper then getting it repainted and also keep it from peeling anymore.

I thought bout the same thing, but I finally got around to getting mine repainted. I've been gonna get some clear vinyl to put on it but hadn't got around to it.

If it come to that then I will end up getting the car repainted. I have been wanting a repaint so maybe this is the time! I can use the peeling door handles as an excuse and tell the wife that the entire needs to be repainted because of it. Think she would go for that? LOL
