Its easy to fix. A junkyard door handle will run you about $25.00. I bought mine new for 29.95.. unscrew it form the door screw on the inside of the door and the 2 cutting nuts and unhook the 2 cables going to it, which are fairly easy, remove the lock using the correct size torx bit and it should just come off, instalation is the same process, just in reverse. Good luck, hop it helps you!

Fixing the driver's side door handle for a 1989 Lincoln Town Car. I need the diagrams.

I just fixed mine. The small clip that attaches the door handle lever to the release lever for the latch is made of plastic and breaks. Dorman makes a good replacement very inexpensively, and it's available at almost ALL auto parts stores. Best thing to do is to look at the PASSENGER SIDE door, and that will tell you how the DRIVER SIDE door release assembles... but I'll bet money that you'll be buying the clip :)

The clip(s) have come off and the window is off track on the drivers side of my 1995 Buick Century. The window is about halfway down

Remove door panel by prying away gently also searching for the screws that will be at the door pull, or handle area. they may have a cover that just snaps away, exposing them. remove screws and with panel removed examine the mechanism that operates motor or hand crank. It it possible to manually turn the mechanism and get window up and if you are really handy you will be able to repair/fix unit. Motors are available on ebay, dealers, and local auto salvage yards.

My inside door latch (driver side) snapped off...what do I need to do to replace?

Remove the inner door panel. The handle will now be accessable, just get one from the dealer and put it on. The door panel is held on with snap inserts around the perimeter of the panel about every 6" or so. There are also some screws in the arm rest and handle. A flat screwdriver slipped under the panel, starting at bottom, will release the snaps.

The window on the driver's side door will not go up or down. My husband purchased a switch and tried that but it still does not work. It will work the passenger side window and the lock/unlock button,...

Looks like its probably a bad window motor. You will need a few special tools to get the door panel off to check the wiring and test the window motor. It's probably better to leave this repair to the dealership.

I have a 2005 acura tl and i just purchased the door handle covers for both the driver and passenger side doors. I was told at the acura dealer that the only way to replace them was to remove the door...

I had this too, on the left rear door handle cover. If you were careful, had a small and thin screwdriver (e.g. the kind you'd use on eyeglass hinges), you could bend back the tabs that hold the cover on and snap it into place. My mechanic told me the same thing, but told me if I were patient, the cover might snap on...saving me about 2 hours' labor cost. It worked!

1996 Camry - outside driver's door handle (plastic) broke away

You can get a whole door from a U-pull-it parts place for under fifty dollars. Any kind of an adhesive will only be a patch and will not last.

Driver's side interior door handle snapped off

there is plastic snaps that attatch the panel to the door all the way around the panel which you can buy a tool to remove the panel without breaking the snaps,the door handle may have a cable hooked to it that releases the latch and it might be stretched causing the handle to pull hard

Window on Driver's side of car won't go up.

Hey Kotterpohl.

Sorry i dont have a diagram but what i can tell you is that you can take it to a body shop and they can remove the inside door panel and show you what part snapped or if you are pretty good with tools, screw drivers and star bits, you can take the panel off yourself, they're usually fairly simple to remove. Just be careful of your switches and door handle. Also check the window power motor too.

Hope that gives you a start.
