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!

    There are many posts on these door handles breaking, it is a common problem.

    Here is a great link to remove the interior door panel, necessary to replace the door handle assembly. It is not a big job.

    I bought the replacement handle assembly from the local Advance Auto Parts store. It was a perfect match for the gray interior of my 1999 Suburban, and cost only $16.

    You will have to drill out a rivet to remove the old assembly, but it can be replaced with a simple machine screw when re-installing the new handle assembly. The assembly fits into the door very tightly with some teeth that you will see on the back of the replacment unit, which will also help you see how the old once will need to slide in order to be removed one the rivet is drilled out. All in all, this whole repair should take about an hour. And it is great not to have to roll down the window to get out any more!

The lock is likely rusted and you will have to remove the inside door panel to get to it and spray it with PB Blaster and hope for the best. Work the outside handle and see if it opens up. Good luck.

How to replace inside door handle on passenger on 1998 chevy silv


Remove screw from inside door grab handle. Remove door panel by carefully prying out plastic clips. Drill or chisel off pop rivets holding the handle on. Pull handle out far enough to disconnect linkage and remove handle. Install new handle and secure to metal panel with new pop rivets or sheet metal screws. It may be easier to reconnect linkages by removing the metal panel also.

2001 GMC Sonoma Extended Cab door handle broken


You should replace the handle with an aluminum version. The best one I have found is sold on eBay for 12 dollars.
Look for the one sold by
mike8756.

It is easy to install, does not require removing any panels. Th first one I replaced took me about 1/2 hour. I hae done several since for friends and now takes about 15 minutes.

Installation instructions are here:

How to replace inside door handle on 1996 Checvy Silverado?


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!
