I just replaced my hinge on the passenger side, I will assume you took the old one out by pushing it forward ( it then fell to the floor area and you retrieved it. The new one should align close to the opening and you will need to pull it through with needle nose pliers You will have to practice aligning the threads into the openings. I started on a 45 degree angle, it took me 5 tries before it lined up for the nuts.

How do you replace drives side exeior door handel for 95geoprizm


1) Remove the plug inside the interior armrest and remove phillips screw.
2) Remove armrest and two screws that hold door panel to door frame.
3) Pop the outer cover off the interior door handle.
4) Remove the interior lock knob and remove door panel by popping out tabs connected to door frame and lifting up off of window ledge.
5) Remove the two nuts holding exterior handle in place.
6) Disconnect the L shaped linkage from the handle. The trick to getting the L shaped linkage into the new handle is to feed L shaped metal pole through hole in door where exterior handle was, leaving the lower end of this linkage in its slot.
7) Feed the end of L shaped pole through the plastic 'hinge' in new handle by folding the hinge over and pushing the end of the L through both sides of the plastic hinge at once. slide the lower loop of the plastic hinge down the L shaped pole to secure pole to handle.
8) Place new handle into door and reverse the process to reinstall interior panel.

Hope this helps Tim

How to open the door frame of a 94 Saturn SL1, my window is off track and am trying to fix it but cant seem to get the door apart all the way


Start by removing the front door rear view mirror interior cosmetic piece.
Remove the 3 large nuts holding the mirror on and take it off the car.
Lift the door handle up and push the two small handle retaining pins out, take off the door handle. Unscrew all the bolts holding the door panel onto the frame, special driver needed. Lift the door panel up and away from the door. Reinstall in reverse order. If you are doing a back door, omit the mirror part.

How do i remove the door panel on a 99 saturn sl2?


Front door remove the mirror first, from the inside out small panel comes off with a screw and two or three large nuts are exposed.
Both doors remove the exterior door handle, lift it up and you will see
two pins which can be pushed out and then the handle comes off.
Get a star driver and remove ALL the bolts holding the plastic panel onto the door frame.
Lower the window and lift the panel up and away, gently.

1999 saturn sc driver side mirror wiggles. How do I tighten it?


You can remove the interior cosmetic piece and snug up the mounting nuts. However not rare for a plastic mount inside the mirror body to break, meaning it will flop around and you have to replace the whole thing.

open to gain access. Then remove the cover

f. One is located on the upper portion on the door
handle. It has a square cover.
3. Pry up and out the window/mirror adjustment cover and unplug the connection.
4. Use a wide flat screw driver to carefully pry on the bottom then side edges of the trim panel to "pop" the retainers out of the door.
5. Once all retainers have been freed: Lift up the door trim up off the upper ledge.
6. Peel back (but do not entirely remove) the rubber/plastic watershield cover.
7. Disconnect all wire connections to the door trim.
8. Pry off the plastic retaining clip to the door handle metal bar and remove the "L" bar out of the plastic connector.

10. Remove all wire holders from the door.
11. Move the wires inside and towards the front lower access hole.
12. Peel back the rubber wire guard between the door and the A-pillar frame.
13. Pull out as much wire as possible out of the door and let hang..
14. While someone else is supporting the door: (If no one can help: with the door fully open: use a jack and block of wood to support the bottom outer edge of the door
a. I use a Breaker Bar or long Wrench
Extention and Hammer or Mallet.
b. Tap Up the Bottom Hinge Pin first.
c. I also use a flat Screw to tap up the Pin Head.
d. Remove the Bottom Door Hinge Pin.
e. Remove the Upper Hinge Pin the same way.

I need to know the distance that the drivers side mirror protrudes from the curvature of the door? and also if the outside drivers mirror is molded plastic into the frame of the car?


The outside mirrors attach to the door frame using 3 nuts that attach to studs that are part of the mirror. You can access the attachments by opening the door and removing the triangular shaped plastic trim piece, removing a piece of foam insulation and then you can see the three nuts to remove.

99 Ford Windstar Back door replacement


If I recall the wiring plugs in at the top you may be able to pull the plug with out droping the back of the headliner, But I am not sure, if not pull the two clips in the rear and one uper side panel for access. You will need someone to help yu remove the door. After you get the wiring loose at the roof and the washer hose, remove one nut/bolt out of each hinge at the door frame, and loosen the other two, remove the gas lift shocks by using a small screw driver to pry the clip back on the end that attaches to the door while some holds the door up, then remove the last two bolt/nuts in the door hinges, and remove the door. If you need to use parts on the old door like the lock cylinder yoou will need to remove the inner plastic panel to gain access to the clip that holds the cylinder. Replace in reverse order and adjust to fit properly before tightning the bolts at the hinges, then snap lift shocks back on and replug harness at roof and washer hose. Hope this helps.
