I need to have some kind of idea of the steps involved of replacing the exterior door handle. What mechanisms are attached to it and does the entire door panel need to come off?

SOURCE: hyundai accent '02 inside door handle & Lock removal

Removing the door is very tricky, trust me on this. I ended up breaking it the first time, so please learn from my mistake.

1. Remove all visible screws: 2 at bottom of door, 3 on front near hinge, 1 on inside the door lever. You will need an average size phillips screwdriver to do this.

2. On the door handle itself, you will see two circles. Pop the front one out. You will need a LARGE size phillips screwdriver to do this.

3. Once screws are removed, take a (standard) flat-head screwdriver, preferable one with a large face, and pry the triangular piece of plastic (that covers the outside SIDE mirror) off. This will aide in puting the door panel back on...TRUST ME!!!

4. Take the same flat-head screwdriver, and pry behind the door lock (at the same time, push forward toward the door hinge). The assembly should pop out.

5. Gently pry the door panel from the door, making sure not to break any unnecessary pieces along the way. The door panel should be hanging by the window sill opening.

6. This is where it will get tricky. It is advised that you use help with this part: Angle the door panel at a 45 degree angle. AT THE SAME TIME, slightly bend and twist the door lock handle until it fits through the hole. You will see the 3 pegs the held it in the door from before. Also note: Be careful not to break the 2 poles that are attached to the lock.

7. After popping the lock through the hole, you should be able to lift the door upward, and off the sill. Repeat these steps in reverse order to re-attach door panel.

Be careful not to rip sound-deadening paper found on inside of door unless you intend to remove or replace it! Not only does it prevent dirt and moisture from entering your door (and possible rusting it from the inside out), but it makes your speakers sound better too!

-SportTunerFreak

**It is also recommended to put a tiny bead of silicone on the inside of the door panel to help suppress any rattling, and prevent moisture and dust from entering. It also helps your screws obtain a tighter fit. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Interior Door Handle

This was a three minute repair, once I had the replacement handle. Leave the door panel alone! Remove the single screw holding the old handle in place. Use a flat blade screwdriver to jimmy the old handle away from the door about an inch. There are two plastic clips holding it to the rods, one for the locking mechanism and one for the latch. Use the flat blade screwdriver to unclip these two connectors. Remove the broken latch, and don't worry, the rods won't disappear into the door! Reverse these steps with the new handle (insert rods, attach clips, wiggle assembly into place, and fasten with single screw). You're done!

SOURCE: how do I take off the door panel to replace a

Door handles are fairly easy to replace, you may even be able to do it without removing the door panel. Look closely at the door handle, you will see a Philips head screw, remove this. Gently remove the faceplate to the handle. Behind the faceplate you will see another Philips head screw, (don't get the two mixed as they are slightly different in size) remove the second screw. Now heres where it gets a little tricky. The handle has to slide forward about a quarter of an inch before it can be tilted out enough to see the clips that retain linkage for the lock and latch, you can't get them mixed up because they are bent in opposit directions. You may need to use a pair of needle nose and a small screwdriver to work the clips up and out of the way so the link rods can be removed. Once you see how they come off it will be easier to replace. After replacing the handle and getting the clips back in place, position the handle back in place being careful to align the 3 slots that will lock it in place, then slide it back into position until you can see the hole for the first screw (which is the last one removed. Replace the screw, just don't tighten it to much, it only screws into plastic. Then work the cover back in place and replace the screw.
If you need to remove the panel, look the door over and find the 6, I think that's how many there are, screw covers, 2 on each end of the door liner and 2 under the door handle. The ones on the otter edge''s of the doors have a little plastic cover (about 1/4 inch in diameter). They pop out with a sharp knife or very small screwdriver. You might want to check along the bottom for additional screws I ma have forgotten. Once all are removed you can pry the door out at the bottomfirst, then gently work the panel back and forth to lift it until it clears the window section. That should do the job at this point. Good luck to you.

How to remove a 2016 Volvo s60 exterior door handle?


You first remove the plastic cover in under which you find the lock (with keyhole).
secondly, open the door and remove the 15 mm diameter plastic cover near the handle. Insert a long torx scrwdriver(T25 ?) in the
opening and while keeping the door handle "open" (this gives you the possibility to easily replace the handle later) Turn the torx until it stops
(do not use much force). Now you can pull out the metallic lock, peer
out the small white plastic under the door handle and pull out the handle. Do not turn the torx before you have replaced the handle

Replace exterior door handle on a jeep commander


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. 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

1997 buick park ave 4 door right front door handle won,t work from the outside


Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.

Install exterior door handle


They are a pain in the ****! If you are a novice Iwouldnt reccomend doing it yourself. I did it but it requires taking the lock mechanism out, losening the window track and squeezzing your hands into the door. You will need a short 10mm open end wrench and a LOT of patience if its anything like the 1999 exterior door handle
