I want to swap my titanline handle into e38 illuminated housing but can't figure out how to remove that pin/lever/cable holder with handle intact.

With handle broken you can rotate the pin enough for that lip to clear housing and then it just pushes out. Not so much with handle in place.

Handle on the right is the broken one,lip clears housing and can be pulled out. Left one is with handle resting against housing and is as close to clearing as I could get it..

There is a rubber pad that can be pushed/pried out but that accomplishes nothing as far as I can tell. Probably just to prevent rattle from handle vibrating against housing.

This is what I want to accomplish but with handle still intact. Any help?

I don't think it's possible without breaking the handles. I went the cut-and-glue route outlined here to keep my titan door handles. If you take your time and do a good job it will look just as clean.

It was assembled so it should be possible to disassemble :unsure:
Probably will use soldering iron to move some plastic out of lips way rather than cut the housing, should it come to that.
