Installation Time: Afternoon

RH (Passenger) handle did not fit 2014 GT
I took the afternoon to install my pair of satin door handles. While the driver side went smoothly and had an excellent fit, I can't say the same for the passenger (RH) side. First of all, the instructions don't mention anything about removing the power lock switches, which is important because the RH switches don't fit flush in these handles. I had to drill a notch in order to get it to fit, but not before cracking parts of the plastic tab due to constantly removing/replacing the switch to inspect its fit.
I put in a call with AM to get a replacement, because even after I got the switch on, the entire door handle fails to fit into the factory opening. I know I'm doing it correctly because I've done this about almost a dozen times with the factory handles when experimenting with different handles.
I'm glad to see that others are able to install the RH handle with their 2014 GTs, so I'm hoping maybe I just got a defective unit. I hope my experience is the exception, not the norm.
