    I have been looking for DIY help, instructions etc for removal/installation of the exterior door handle (front right door, 2006 Audi A6, keyless entry feature), but haven't found anything.

    I somehow (aimless trial and error) managed to get the handle off.

    I have no been trying get in back on for 2 afternoons. No luck.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?
    Links, video, write up?

    To figure out how it fits, I removed everything that sticks out and can get damaged, leaving essentially 2 parts:
    the base and the handle (without cover).

    Regarding the base: should the round/square plug be inserted into the base before installation or after?

    I figure the handle is inserted from the outside first, then the base brought into position from the inside.
    That is what I have been trying for 8 hours now (with variations).


    Will post photos later.
