How to replace inside door handle on 1996 Checvy Silverado?

Door handle broke and I bought a new one to replace it but would like a nice walk through so I don't mess anything up on replacing it. This was loaned to me by a friend and I told him I would fix it before giving it back to him. Thanks for any help.

This is VERY common on these Trucks. My 1995 Silverado has done it Several Times. First you are going to need Door Panel Clips to replace the Ones that you will Break taking off the Door Panel. Any Decent Auto Parts Store Carries them. VERY Straight Forward from there on. For the Exterior Handle-Remove All clips and Screws once inside the Door and Replace. Make sure to put the Rubber Seal on the New Handle or it will leak! For the Inside Handle- Remove the Pin connecting the Old handle and Replace with the New once you get the Door Panel off it is Really Easy from there on!

How do you get the door panel off of a 1996 Chevy Silverado when both the inside and outside door handles are broke.


If it's like most all other door panels, you have a couple of phillips screws in the arm rest, a screw behind the handle, (inside the vehicle), the window crank usually has a c=clip behind it, you can usually just push it out with a screwdriver. sometimes it's held there by a screw. The outer edges of the panel are held to the door by plastic rivits, just take a medium sized flathead screwdriver and pry it beteen the panel and the door, and slide it till hit one of those rivits, then just pull on the screwdriver thereby pulling out the rivits.

2000 Silverado Exterior Door Handle


If you have the panel off, just look up at were the outside door handle is mounted. You need to unbolt the rest of what is left....usually a metric fastner. Next, there should be 2 small access holes, probably covered by plastic sheeting. These holes are for the socket to reach them. There are a few clips that need to be popped loose from the rods but take your time and use a thin flat tipped screwdriver. And when you go to reinstall the new handle, you'll have to manipulate the handle into the door skin or the "hole" where the door handle goes.

Just take your time and you can do this.

Good luck!

Broken inside door handle-1996 Chevy Silverado Extended Cab


On almost all GM's there will be a screw in the recess that the handle sits in. After removing this screw, gently wiggle this cup out of it's hole and there should be a metal rod attached to the back of it with a small clip. Unclip this and it's out - installation is the reverse. Just don't lose the clip or let the linkage rod fall down inside or you will have to remove the door panel. It shouldn't take five minutes to replace and most parts stores now carry GM door handle assemblies. Good Luck!
