Question about 2001 Ford Explorer
YOU CAN LIFT UNDER THE DOOR PANEL AND A FEW OF THE PLASTIC HOLDERS WILL POP OUT. KEEP DOING THIS ALL THE WAY UP THE PANEL AND THE GREY PANEL WILL LIFT OUT ENOUGH FOR YOU TO REPLACE THE HANDLE.

Its very easy to do, did mine today, pull the door panel off, 3 screws 2 on each corner of the bottom of the door and one in the grab handle tray. Look at the door handle there will be a small plastic circle that pops off remove plastic piece and remove screw, lift door panle upwards and off. 3 screws for the new door handle remove old one unclip door lock and unclip door handle install new one same way you took the old one off.
Part is $26.00 at kia, takes 15 minutes to repair!

Have you been replacing the handles with aftermarket replacements made in China. If so, spend the extra $$ to get the parts from a GM dealer. They obviously break too but perhaps not as easily.

You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.
