My door handle broke off and I need to get the small panel off

I have the main door panel off but I am not sure how the smaller panel behind the door handle itself comes off. I am temporarily using vice grips on the rod to open the door.

Mazda Mpv replace door handle


Most doors have a main screw that hold the handle that pulls the door shut screwed to the frame behind it. Look for little removable trim pieces. Check behind the inside door latch for two screws. Need to remove the power window switch panel, and connector. Check for screws on the side of door panel. The rest are push pins that should pop out when you pull the door panel out. If you have a door light, be sure to reach behind and remove connector before removing the panel all the way.

I am trying to fix a door handle that will not open from outside


Turn the window handle to where you can see a small 1/2" slot rt at its base where it meets the panel.you'll notice a small brass v shaped clip,you'll need hooked pick or something simular to hook this clip and pull it out of its slot,this release's window crank handle. Once this is off the rest of panel is held on by plastic panel clips that pull loose by pulling panel outwards from door ,and also by a few various screws. once panel is off temp. slide window crank back on and crank window all the way up. You then should have clear view of outer door handle. Handle has two rods attached to it,one for lock assy., one for latch release.This is the one you'll be looking at.Most likely you will find rod has came loose due to broken retainer clip at handle,or casting on handle itself has broken off.If clip is broke you can buy new clip at dealer or at some autoparts outlets,replace and reattach rod(make sure rod locks into place).If handle casting is broke will need handle replaced.It is held in place by two 10mm bolts,two rods preeviously mentioned. If handle is body color matched will need color code(on door jam sticker)to order handle from dealer to match.Lock assy will need to be transfered to new handle,it is held in by two spring clips.You notice two holes one on each side of lock,you will need to push release clips inwards through each hole to release lock and slide it out.to install just push down into newhandlle until clips engage. Let me know if you run into problems. Good luck and if this was able to help you please leave me some positive feedback. Thanks and good luck, Joel

Jaguar x type 4 door. how to remove inteior rear panel to replace speaker


There are 2 or 3 screws under the panel and other one behind the handle (not the one to open the door, the one you grab to close the door) this one is covered by a round plastic tap, remove it first with a small sharp pointed tool, then very carefully try to pull out the entire panel, be very careful not to broke the clips, you also need to "unplug" the wire that opens and close the locks.

The outside door handle doesn't work but the inside one does what do I need to replace on an 96 f 250?


You should open the door first...take the interior trim panel off, access the "innards" of your door. It could be as simple as a clip that needs to be reattached or replaced or it could be the handle itself. Open up your door and move the handle and watch the attaching points to make sure it's all attached and in the correct number of pieces...
If you need help removing the door panel we can help you with that as well. (usually the screws are around the inside latch and behind the door courtesy lights.... let us know how it goes!

Trying to take off arm rest on right do to take off door panel.


i've done this twice. 1/2 the pain is getting the door panel off.
At the point where the arm rest meets the door panel by the door handle there will be a small section where a little light shines on the door handle. you need to put a small screw driver in behind the light an pry this gently away from the door panel. this will reveal a small bolt that must be removed.

Behind the door handle itself there is a small panel that must be pried off as well. you will see a slot on the front of this to stick your screw driver and again push in as you pry back this piece of plastic. this will reveal a screw that must be removed also. just below the door handle, you must also pry off the lock lever as it sits on a rod that work the mechanism to lock/unlock the door.

If you have electric windows, there is a slot in the mounting bracket that you can stick your screw driver in a little and pry this up and out as you must remove the window and lock wires to get the panel off.

Now, there are a series of plastic push clips around the bottom of the door panel. You should be able to stick your fingers between the door panel and the door to pull these away from the door. Don;t use a screw driver for this as you will prob tear the panel. When you get it away from the bottom, do a curl with the door panel from the bottom as it is clipped on the top by the window.

Also, search for "door panel removal on the 1999 Pontiac bonneville" and you may be able to get some pics.

hope this helped.

Oh forgot, good luck getting to the nuts that hold on the mirror. you need someone with small hands and some funky wrenches to reach them.

There are (3) phillips head screws to take out. One behind the door opening handle, another one below the armrest handle, and one behind the round reflector at the bottom corner. The other clips holding the panel on are the nylon push in types that look like screws. Best if you get one of those flat tools with a notch or vee instead of just using a screwdriver. Mine appeared to have had another screw behind the window & lock switches but the screw was gone. the previous owner broke the window and had it replaced so I suspect the mechanic forgot to put that screw back in. Don't forget to disconnect the wires from the window switch and lock when you get the panel loose.
