    Hello,
    I'm trying to tighten up/adjust the handle/lever on the rear driver swing out door on my
    78 FJ40. It's quite loose and rattly. The rattle doesn't bother me, but I want to make the door close tighter because exhaust is vacuming into the cab and my GF hates it! I can see what needs tightening but cannot get the siler handle off. How can I remove the little lock-pin from the handle shaft? Anybody here that has done this? It seems simple once I get the handle and black boot off of there....

    Thanks a lot,
    Jim

    If I recall correctly, you have a roll pin in there that you have to punch out with a pin punch. That allows the handle to come off and give you access to the rest of the mechanism...
    YMMV.

    Yes, but why are you carrying your GrandFather around in back of your 40 :slap:

    Lol, it's the only way he gets out and around anymore ;)
    He loves the 40, too!
