Door Handle "Skins" for Land Rover Freelander 2 fitted with 2 pc Handle - Zermatt Silver
Door Handle "skin" kit - Zermatt Silver
for Land Rover Freelander 2
fitted with 2 piece handle type (see pictures)
We sell 2 quite different products for the door handles on a Land Rover Freelander 2 - "Covers" and "Skins".
- The "covers" are an easy to apply stick on cover that cover the grey painted handles with great results.
- The "skins" are replacement fascias for the door handles - like changing the fascia on a mobile phone. Here you remove the old grey "skin" and replace with a body colour "skin"
This listing is for an 8 piece SKIN kit ( 4 long pieces, 3 short pieces and 1 short Key release piece )
These parts are colour coded in Zermatt Silver check you chassis plate for colour code LRC798 or paint code MBK.
This product will only fit your car if it has the 2 piece door handle design - see pictures that show the difference between the 1 piece and 2 piece door handle designs.
You need to look in the area at the back of the handle "grip" area to see if you can see the 2 parts joining together.
Most Land Rover Discovery from 2006 have the 2 piece handle design.
The small part with the padlock symbol is for the left ( UK passenger side ) door handle where there is an emergency key access in case of battery failure.
We also have these available in bright red, chrome, matt black, silver & java black. (see our other listings)
These are not genuine Land Rover parts
To remove the old door handle "skin" you need to close all doors and lock the car. Then pull the door handle open and at the exposed edge unclip each side of the door handle as shown in the pictures. Then slide the door handle forward to remove the "skin". Fitting the new skin is easy at it just clips into place.
The small parts on the doors can be pulled off but this will on some occasions break the clips - this is not a problem as you don't need to re-use the old parts.
The left hand front door has a padlock symbol - to remove this piece you need to insert your key into the hole on the underside then pull the piece away from the door.
Make sure you identify the small part with the emergency key release slot in ( see note in above section ) when refitting the new parts.
