1998 Toyota Camry Inside Door Handle

My 1998 Toyota Camry inside door handle broke. I ordered the handle and the trim. Couldn't figure out how to do the handle so I just put in the trim. Do I need to take off the whole door panel? If so, can you walk me thru it?

Thanks,

    need instructions to replace inside door handle on 1998 toyota camry

    That was excellent. On a 4 Door, the rear door trim has less hardware. Once the screws are all out you need to lift the entire door trim panel up over the window steel to remove. I broke my GF's Driver side door lock and replaced it in an hour with the back door hardware.

    Does the trim have a small "door" to access the retention screw?

The Door Panel Has Got To Be Removed.
Start By Removing The Handle Cover You Mentioned On The Handle Careful Not To Break It . A Small Screwdriver Can Help.
Next Remove Black Piece By The Window By Pulling It Strait Outward. Then Remove The Screw Cover On The Actual Handle You Use To Close The Door. Remove The Screw From Below It And There Is One Under The Front Edge Of It As Well. There is 2 screw along the bottom edge of the door as well. then remove screw up by the mirror. now remove this little plastic clip right on the side closest to the outer edge by pressing the center and pulling the whole thing out. Then There Are 2 10mm screw that hold on the door latch remove and slide the whole handle forward and it should come free. Now Reverse all these steps with the new handle in place.
THIS SEEMS HARDER THEN IT IS I PROMISE.
If You Have Any Questions What So Ever Please Feel Free To Post Then And I Hope I Helped At least A Little.

Inside driver door handle broken 1998 toyota camry


Best guess is the linkage (cable) on the inside of the door frame is no longer connected to the inside door handle. You will need to take the door apart, and hook the cable back up on the inside of the door.

How to remove and replace drivers inside door handle camry coupe


On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can replace the handle

You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If it's the inside handle, just disconnect the rod to the back of the handle to replace it. If it's the outside handle, pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to remove the bolts holding down the outer door handle

98 camry - driver door handle outside of car broke off. Have to use a rope to pull it up to open door. Where can I find a replacement or how much to fix it?


go to a junk yard to get the part... it'll be $50 to $100 at a dealership, plus about $200 for labour charges...

It isn't that difficult of a job.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to see the outer door handle, it should be held in place by two bolts, one on either side of the handle...

roughly 30-60mins to fix

Door handle repair


Then you'll have to remove the inside door skin. It's not too difficult. The hardest part is if you have manual rollup windows, you need to remove a clip behind the window crank and sometimes it will fly off and get lost. Remove all screws you can find (some are behind plastic covers, like for the inside door opening handle, after removing that one slide it to the front of the car to remove the handle), one or more may be hidden under the bottom carpeted area if you have that (run your fingers around the edge area to feel the holes). After all that the door skin should be held on by 'panel pops' sometimes these break if the cars old or if your not carefull. You can get replacements cheaply enough.
If you need anymore help let me know.
