There is a tool that pushes away the spring clip between the hand flange/shoulder and the door upholstery – from the 90˚ position in front. (Same for all interior handles.

Maybe rechroming is a good idea, because the internals of repos are bad and don't hold the clips so well.

BTW, the Chinese repos of the Australian GM handles from the late 50s into the 60s, which are the same as for 567 Chevs, are actually very good. (But probably difficult to get from the US.)

I think his referring to exterior door handles? You need to remove the interior door panel, use the tool John is talking about to remove the interior door handle, there are two screws that hold the door handle in position, you`ll be able to remove the button once the door handle has been removed.
