I have the Chevy Astro AWD 1998 passenger van with the three part rear door (tilt up window and then split half doors). The handle broke off of the right side primary door. Is there a way to get the door...


just take off the inside panel and look inside the should be some tiny silver bars that either pull up or go side to side, then pull that should open it. also you can get to the handle from the inside access and replace from an auto parts store

You'll need to 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. then you just remove the bolts to the mirror

How to install exterior door handle on 95 Safari Van


hi, remove the entire door interior panel, keep notes and diagrams as you go, even take pics, usually the exterior handle is secured by 2 small screws or nuts, undo these and the handle will detach . there will be a small rod connected to this handle by a small clip or similar. reassembly is a reversal of the entire process, just take your time
