Rolf I've wired drilled and pinned the beasts but the problem starts with
aluminium joints corroding due to the iron pins and the al oxide wearing
them sloppy. The sloppier they get the more you have to grunt to squeeze
enough to open. If youre strong enough they'll break; if not they stay shut
and you stay outside... The one screw is hidden under the plastic/chrome
trim the other screw is in the lock catch area of the door edge. Easy to
take off but new ones are the only true answer. Grease them well to make
