The exterior door handle on my Hyundai Accent does not operate.
The door can be opened from the inside but not from the outside. There is no tension on the door handle lever as there is on the other handles. Is this easy for me to remedy myself? If so how do I go about this please?

The control panels are often held in place by either spring tensioners or some built into the plastic frame of the panel and can be pried up and out.
They pretty much depend on gravity to keep it in place.
Once free of the panel, turning it may allow it to be passed through the hole in which it normally resides.
I would try first to pry with an old credit or bank card before resorting to metal tools.
yes remove the panel, unhook the linkage one for the lock and one for the latch remove linkage from the handle not the latch, then remove blots holding handle then remove handle from outside the door, you will have to swap the lock to the new handle and then install new handle.
remove door panel which is attached by screws,peel away plastic liner and look inside door at back of door handle..using needle nose pliers pop off the small steel rods that are for inside door mechanism,then remove the one bolt that attaches the handle to the inside of door and from outside of door remove handle.Replace in reverse order!
simple solution. take the panel off of your door, and look for the rod that connects directly to your outside door handle. 9 times out of 10, it came loose because it didn't get inserted properly into the cheap plastic hole which keeps the rod connected to the door handle.
