How Do I Remove the interior door handle covers?

The door pull ones have four clips. Its hard to pull off the first time but dont be afraid to pull hard toward you. You can use a flat head screw driver to prise it off but the inner handle can divot a bit as the plastic is soft. I have a photo I can post up tomorrow.

The 2014 cars have complete wider inner and out handle parts which look identical but are infact wider so your hand can fit in and adjust the power mirror switch easier.

Just thought I would update this as I fitted the CF handles this morning

The plastic ones from Lotus were really tight and felt like they were going to break as I tried to pull them off, I concluded that a screwdriver could easily damage the edge of the plastic so I used plastic bike tyre levers to ease off the plastic covers.

To refit or fit the new ones, I found it best to fix the clips to the handle first except for the top one which is best left on the car, you can then use the top one for initial alignment and just push firmly working your way down the handle.

The CF door pulls are way nicer than the original plastic jobs


Thanks to Colin P for selling me his unused shiny bits of CF
