Replacing bathroom door handle

I have removed leverset and trying to remove latch however unable to remove square drive spindle. (Apologies if the terminologies used are not correct - guess work after going through product installation guide).

 

Tried pullingit, twisting it and even gently tapping with hammer!) 

 

Any suggestions please!!!!

Re: Replacing bathroom door handle

Hi @Neo19. I apologise for the delay in my reply to your question, as I have been waiting for clarification.

 

The manufacturer advises removing the black rubber 'O' ring which in on the spindle. Presumably, that will allow the spindle to slide through the latch mechanism.

 

Please let us know if that fixes the issue for you. If it doesn't I'm happy to look into the issue further.

Hi @MitchellMc  thanks a lot for your prompt response. It worked like a charm.

 

Can't believe I didn't even notice the black ring before! :smile:
