How do I change the outside driver's door handle on my 2005 Nissan Altima

You have to remove the interior door panel and look up inside the interior of the door near the door handle and you will see the fasteners. There will be a rod too that has to be removed that goes to the latch. I would also highly recommend that you get a good repair manual for your vehicle. These manuals help walk you through though repairs. Good luck with it.

Removing the door panel on a 2005 Nissan Altima

If you have the door panel loose you should be able to see the plastic clips that are holding that in or a plug you can undo to be able to remove the panel completely. If it has clips you can release them with a screw driver.

Back rear window replacement in 2002 Nissan Altima

First take the door panel off by unscrewing the door panel screws. Next undo the door handle screws followed by disconnecting the window power unit. After everything is removed, peal back the protective plastic if there is some to get access to the bolts for undoing the window and to losen the window tracking sides. After the old window is unmounted take the gasket casing for the window and only have the top part pushed in while the sides are lose and away so the window can be slide in and the bolts then reinserted to support the window. Last take the bottom parts of the gasket casing and feed each side down either side of the window until it is taught and secured in place. After that plug in the window power to make sure it works correctly and then reassemble the door handle casing and door panel. You now have a brand new back passenger window for a 2002 Nissan Altima.

You need a body control computer, which controls the windows, door locks and other items. The new computer will have to be programed by a good imports shop or Nissan dealer.

There is a cable that attaches to the inside door latch release handle. The plastic that retains this cable is most likely broken. I have seen this before. If the retainer is not holding the cable sheath correctly, the entire cable moves when the handle is pulled and does not release the door latch.

Remove the door panel and inspect this cable. You will see 2 cables (one is for the door lock). If the plastic is broken, you will need a new interior handle assembly.

Hope this is helpful!!
