How do you change the driver side exterior door handle on a 2001 ford explorer sport 2 door? Looks like the factory one is rivited in or something.

    Alot of these high traffic parts (door handles,window motors etc.) are riveted in as not to come loose over time and must be drilled out and re-riveted back in with a special rivet gun with harden steel rivets, probably need to have your local body shop handle this
