Default 2007 350Z convertible outside door handle removal

How do you remove the door handle on a convertible 350z? I only see one rubber grommet. The 350Z coupe has two rubber grommets with 10 mm bolts behind them, the convertible has one. Please help!!

Finding the second one is the challenge. On the convertibles there is only 1 rubber grommet for one of the screws.. there is a steel door guide where the top grommet should be.. I think I have to remove the door guide to get to my top bolt. Thanks for the reply.

Yes, you need to remove the door guide pin. If memory serves right, it's held in with 3 torx screws.

Make sure you use a 10mm magnetic nut setter to avoid dropping the bolts into the door.

My man! If you were close, I'd just let you come by and borrow mine. Handle removal/replacement only takes about 10 mins once you've done it.
