Funny, I didn't feel it was. Must relate to overall experience w/cars in general, I guess

Default Not really. I just took it apart and messed around with it until I got it to work

FYI, your pads are enroute via FedEx.

If you feel so inclined, after you get them you can toss me $10 via paypal at the addy I have under my name here.

Default i took my handle apart once to se how it was done so i could refinish it

when putting it back together the spring nearly broke, the metal was torn half way through. so i scratched that idea for fear of completely breaking the spring and having to buy a new handle assembly.

id like to know how these work out for sure.

Default When I took mine out, it was pretty easy. Putting it back in will be harder since everything has to

line up.
