Electric sliding passenger door of Toyota Raum won't open when front door is closed either by pulling handle or pushing switch on dashboard.


Although the attached video is for a Toyota Sienna, the basic troubleshooting and repair is somewhat the same...and one-way this d.i.y. chose to tackle the problem himself. I do recommend purchasing or downloading a service repair manual specific to your vehicle for added tech support and will be a helpful resource should other mechanical issues arise.

Hi my door handles on my car is no good i have been looking around and can not find them some one told me i would need to buy the whole door panel because the door handle and the panel is all in one


No you don't have to buy the whole door panel, I just purchased the drivers inside door handle for my 2000 300M off of ebay, which is a really good place to start looking for one.
When you remove your door panel and look behind it where the door handle comes through you will see the four plastic studs (for lack of a better term) and four washer like clips holding them in place, you can carefully lift these clips with a flat blade screwdriver working them upward to remove the bezel with the door handle attached from the door panel, these can be reused if this step is done properly.
The tricky part (not all that tricky) is actually removing the handle form the bezel, here you will need a razor knife or a regular knife with a good point on it and a pair of needle nose pliers, hold the bezel so the door handle is facing away from you, roll it forward so you are looking at the bottom of it, this is where you will need to open the hole for the pin holding the handle to come out. It should be fairly easy to see where you need to add the hole. Once that is done use the needle nose pliers to remove the pin by sliding it out of the hole, remove the old handle and replace with the new handle, slide the pin back through the hole and you're almost done. Once the pin has been reinserted you will need to close the hole, to do this, heat the tip of the screwdriver until it is hot enough to melt the plastic, then use it to melt and push some plastic back over the hole you created. You should have no trouble doing this.
Now you can put the bezel back on the door panel and then the door panel back on the door. Don't forget to hook the rod to the new door handle before attaching the door panel back onto the door.
Then you're done!
Removing the door panel: You will have 3 screws to remove at the bottom of the door panel, 3 or 4 behind the speaker cover, on in the door handle (the part you hold to close the door) and one behind the door handle itself. Remove your door handle carefully, if it does not come off relatively easy look to see if you may have missed any screws. I do not guarantee I have told you all the places the screws are, it will be up to you to be sure you remove all of them before taking the door panel off.
I hope this helps, good luck!! James

I have a susuki forenza and I need to replace the driver's side door handle. I already have the new part (door handle).


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can remove the inner door handle and replace with new one. If it's your outer door handle, pull back the weather seal and disconnect the linkage to the outer door handle and then remove the bolts securing the outer handle to the door
