I believe there are only 2 - 10mm head nuts holding it in. bring long-nosed pliers, there's a spring clip and it's close quarters in there.

1990 chevy astro van the door handle broke cant get door open cany ou help


You will need to manipulate the lock linkage from inside the door using car-thief type tools and expertise or by gaining access to the door internals by removing the interior trim panel from the door. It is not an easy task and might need the seat removing and even then the panel is likely to suffer damage.

My front door will not close because latch has locked in place, help 1999 Chevy astro van


You should be able to open it with a large screw driver. Simply put the screw driver in the hole where the latch would go and pull the handle to open the door. With the handle in the open position pull the screw driver toward the inside of the van and the latch should open right up. Then close the door. Hope this helps.

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

How do I replace a '94 chev Astro outside drivers door handle


You first have to remove the inner door panel by taking the screws out of the inner handle and arm rest. the outer edges of the inner door panel either has screws or it has clips that can be pulled out. after you remove the panel you need to roll up the window and you will be looking at the back of the handle. simply un hook the clips that hold the lockrod and the inner opener rod and unbolt the outside door handle. reverse the prosses and walla.

2004 chevy astro van back seat right door won't open


not sure about your specific vehicle but i do know that in the winter, when a door closes, it grabs the pin in your doorjam like a lobster claw closes on a finger. if any moister is inside the mechinism, it can freeze very easily. also if you pull on the door handles tp try to open it...if the door handle moves freely, then you either bent or popped the rod that goes from the latch mechanism to the handles and you would have to take off the interior wall of the door to get to it and fix the rod or put it back...it used to happen to older cars allk the time.

99 Astro lift door latch left side inoperative


I slammed the door shut one time and the door wood not open at all. I had to take the inside door handle off and found that the cables simply came off of their post (inside the door) on the outside part of the door handle. More than likely only one cable has come off its post on your van. I hope this helps!
