Default removal of boot handle

Gents

Removal of the boot handle?

I assume its trim removal from the inside by the two screws covered by the blanks?

Then is it a threaded screw or something else inside the tailgate?

How is the access?

Yes boot trim panel is just two screws and loads of door panel clips so needs a good pull to release, boot handle is held in place by two nuts

Thanks Dave.

Assume that the nuts are easily accessible with a normal socket set?

Yes, dead easy when the boot trim is removed. 2x 8mm (or maybe 10mm!) nuts.
