Further handle has a black plastic back plate, but the other handle does not.Does the alloy cover pull off the plastic back plate, and pull away from the other handle in a similar way?....The alloy cover is very tight to the backplate......Is there a hidden backplate behind the other handle assembly?
The reason I want to remove is to be able to reposition the spindle which has moved and is held by only one grub screw, when it should be held by both, for each handle.
