I've got an 83 300sd and I just stumbled across a door pull for the passenger side of my car. The current one in my car has a piece thats borken so the armest on the door isn't connetced properly at the top. Is this gonna be easy to replace?

Should not be a problem. Take out the all screws you can find. There is a cover under the door lever. You can pry that out with a little screw driver, and unscrew the small screw you see. Pull the knobs off of the seat adjusting switch. They be so tight that you'll think you'll break them off. It could take little time to figure out how to take the plastic snap ring off of the seat adjusting switch. Now untighten the screw holding the top part of the door handle. Then unscrew the lock knob. Then remove the trim piece towards the rear of the window. This a small screw holding holding it place. Once you get the screw out, lift the trim up. At this point, the whole door panel should lift up and out. Do not use force or else you could break a tab and your door could rattle later on. If someone else worked on it, the tabs could already be broken.

Watch out for the door light wire at the bottom.

There are two screws holding the lock lever. Just unscrew them. From here you can remove the linkage from the lever.

Once you get the hang of doing this, you can take this panel out in less than 15 minutes.

Hope this helps.
