2006 silverado tailgate handle bezel. how do you remove/install this part without breaking the tabs off?
uhhhhhhhhh...... i dont really like that answer.Originally Posted by Nick
never actually pulled one off, but incase you break it (hoping its not already a color matched one) i picked up a regular black textured one at auto zone for $6 for my girlfriends dad's truck a few weeks ago
I read about it somewhere before... I believe you have to push down on the top of it? Like put your thumbs on the handle and other 8 fingers on top of it and pull down. I remember I tried it on mine just for the hell of it and it started to come off, but I didn't take it off all the way.
I think the bezel pops out from the bottom and then slides out. It should be pretty easy to figure out - what's the worst thing that could happen ? :)
I break about every other bezel that I take off. Just when I thought I had it figured out I would break it.Originally Posted by BAGGED1996CHEVY
i broke one, so i got another one and color matched it and broke that one too, sooooo GL

I firmly believe that if you order a new one and have it on hand when you take the old one off it will not break. Other than that a little glue is holding my (second) one on just fine.
WHat is it with you monkeys? Mine was off plenty of times before I greased up my latching mechanism - I have yet to break one :LOL:
ok then head monkey how do YOU remove/install it without breaking it?Originally Posted by Joe

Last time I did it I broke a tab getting it off, and for good measure one more putting it back on somehow.
huh?!?! what!?!? i did not see anyone say shave it.Originally Posted by 96thebossgrnchv
uh no he was saying that joe already posted how to get it off, then 96thebossgrnchv was saying to shave it, two separate statementsOriginally Posted by BAGGED1996CHEVY

When I took mine off to fix one of the rods I managed to get it off without breaking it. I then proceeded to drop it and broke 3 of the 4 tabs! My 4 year old learned a new word that day.
