    For the life of me I cannot understand how to remove the exterior door handles from my 1948 Devon Saloon restoration project. The Service Manual states:

    “To remove any of the door locks the door handles must first be removed. These are retained in position by strip springs integral with each handle and the handle can be removed by levering the boss of the handle outwards until the strip springs collapse.”

    Not being familiar with the concepts of “levering the boss” and “strip springs collapse”, I can not understand what is being directed to do.

    Any translation into 2024 AD language would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Also, took out the four bolt holding the bonnet latch but things did not come apart. Rather than get a hammer and chisel and using brute force, I thought I might ask the good folks of this forum.
