Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Driver's outside door handle broke off

I can still open it but have to use two hands, grabbing the inside edge. Can I replace it with the one from the back door on the same side? If so - how complicated would this be?

It shouldn't be too hard. Since they are all identical. But why not just buy one at an online store. Google images for the door handle for your car. There are a lot of places to but one. But whatever you do is up to you.

I need written instructions on how to replace a outside driver side door handle for an 06 ford focus


Close/wind up the window. Remove the inside door panel. Be careful with power window switch and door speaker wiring connectors. Disconnect them before pulling the door panel away. Remove any plastic covers that may be glued to the door. Have a look at the door handle from inside the door. You will have some idea as to how to remove it. Usually door handles are secured by screws from the inside. Locate and remove them. Remove linkages to the door handle then pull handle form outside.

Passenger door handle broke of the outside of Nissan pathfinder, now the door wont open from the inside or out. how can we get the door open?


Remove the door's inner (interior) panel and inspect the trailing edge of the inside of the door. You should be able to see the door linkage from both the inner door handle and (what's left) of the outer handle (try moving the inner handle to see how the linkage is routed. I suspect that when the outer handle broke, its linkage dropped onto the inner handle's linkage and jammed it. With a long screwdriver, try moving the inner handle linkage to release the door latch and then replace the outer handle and its linkage (a salvage yard may be the best source and a Mitchell body repair manual should show hoe the linkage is routed and attached. Good luck.

The front passenger door will not open with the outside door handle or the interior door handle. after taking the inside door cover off, i discovered the interior door handle is broken and the connector...


The locking mechanism is manufactured with carbon composite and plastic levers that the door handles attach to. It is hard to tell what parts that you do need. Remove the passenger side door panel. It will have some screws and maybe a bolt on the inside handle. The panel has snap plug on it and they fit into designated hole in the door. After getting the door panel off, be careful here, there are sharp metal edges that can cut. There are some peep hole to see the rods and connector inside the door. If the plastic hooks on the door locking mechanism are broken. The hole door lock assembly will need to be replaced.

Try your local wrecking yards and tell them what type of vehicle you have and year. Also, state what door it is and what you will need.

Now, if the interior door hand hook on the lock mechanism isn't broke off. The get a cloths hanger and straighten it out and attach it to the opening latch on locking mechanism. This will give you inside temporary handle, while you are trying to fix the door. Safety. GB...stewbison
