Hey everybody, I'm having issues with my release handles for my trunk and fuel door (they are both stuck together and the fuel door cable no longer seems to be connected to the handle at all) My car is a 2011 Sti and I'm just wondering if anybody knows how I can remove the actual release handles so I can repair the cable and replace the handle mechanism all together. Thanks!

Does the whole unit not unclip from it's mount via a screw or tabs?

Glad you figured it out. I will offer this advice, if the cable needs repaired just replace it with an OEM one. After market replacement units are almost always garbage.

Thats what I figured, just ordered new cables for both trunk and fuel door, also ordered new release mechanism all from the dealer as it was totally corroded and fell apart when I removed it.
