I think you might have to remove the quarter light from the door and it becomes clear from there ,if I remember rightly

Hi there,

The quaterlight has to be removed from the door, its glass removed, the rivets drilled out of the old latch and a new latch riveted on. The glass has to be replaced with a new seal and replaced in the door. This is not an easy job from start to finish and it has many pitfalls and opportunities to damage things!

Cheers, Carl.
