    Hi the handle on my bifold door has just sheered off. Assume I can just replace the mechanism? Any advice on how to remove - I assume the small square panels have screws behind so how do I get access? Photo included

    Hi,

    If your original handles are anything like:

    then, yes. Prise up the little squares and the screws should be underneath! :)

    However, if the handle has sheered, that could suggest that excessive force is needed to close the door - some adjustment of the doors and mechanism may be necessary.

    Thanks- I subsequently found that, and I think that is the handle I need. So should be a straight swap but yes the handle is a bit stiff so I will have a go at adjusting. Thanks!
