It helps to have a flat pry tool to get the door panel off but, other than that it's not too hard. Autozone has a tool in the help section that is made to work with those and they have the replacement push clips that always seem to break.

How to repair broken inside door handle


This is a tough one. The whole inside door panel has to come off. Careful not to break the glass.
I attached a cord to the linkage and now use that as my handle. It seems hokey, but I didn't have the cash for the replacement and I only had to partially remove the panel.

1989 GMC Sierra truck doors loose


Hey there.You can purchase a door pin and bushing repair kit to tighten up the hinge area,requires removing the door to replace.If the hinge area is worn to badly,the brass bushings willnot last.Also your window crank handle is held on by a C-clip behind the handle in between the plastic shim and the handle which requires a special tool to remove or a small screwdriver to get the clip off.It is hard to see.The shaft that the handle is on are known to wear also and if thats the case you will need to have the window regulator replaced.Hope this helps.John.
