How to remove door handles only, not the whole


For inside door handles, a special tool is required. It slips behind the door handle or window crank and moves the clip down so the handle will come off. For the outside door handle, Take the inside handles off using the special tool (available at any auto parts store). Remove the inside door panel. Remove the retainer clips for the door/lock linkage.The outer handle is held on by bolts on the inside of the door. Good luck

Outer door handle does not open door on drivers side how do I fix it? Inner door handle works.


There are one of 2 things wrong here. Either the outside handle is broken, and you'll need another one, or it is out of adjustment and can be repaired. It's a little work to find out either way, the inside door panel must be removed. This is lots of screws, you'll see as you start removing them. The black triangle plastic near the rear view must be taken off, pry the little round plug out and then remove the nut. Finally the panel lifts up, give the bottom a smack upward with your hand, it WILL come up.

Now is the tricky part, you need to see whats wrong. There is a rod connecting the door handle to the door release. If the rod looks like it moves up and down when you move the outside door handle up and down then it needs adjusting.
See the picture of the door handle...the white nylon clip on the right must be separated from where it attaches to the rod, then the rod is positioned higher so the handle can pull it up enough to open the door.

If the rod does NOT move when you move the handle, either the rod is completely loose, or the handle is broken. Remove 2 nuts from the inside and the handle comes out, and put back in a junk yard or ebay replacement. Good luck...Chris

How to replace door handle on passager front side


Remove the interior door trim - Remove inner handle surround, slide out wood, remove screws including the one hiding under the rubber air trunking. Remove small middle section (inside pull-handle) to reveal cross head screw - remove. Also remove screw in red kerb light.

The window lift motor needs removing, but first use plenty of tape to hold the window to the top of the door frame to prevent the glass falling down.

Undo the four nuts that hold the lift motor (no need to unbolt the bottom channel runner).

Undo the connectors, and ease down and out the motor.

Remove the four Torx-headed bolts holding the window frame, and remove a fifth inside the door at the bottom of the front frame. (Don't worry - the frame will not drop down)

Force the frame up so that the window is clear of the weather seal (a bit of a struggle). Untape the glass, and remove. Remove frame. Remove the handle - first undo the cable/ rod connections. Unplug the handles electric's (cut cable ties). Remove 2 10mm bolts holding handle to door frame. Remove handle.

To refit - reverse procedure.

you may need to adjust the new handle

To adjust the door handles, you take off the door interior panel.

There's a little gray rectangle in the interior door handle. Push up and it will pop out revealing a screw. There's also a screw behind the puddle lamp (the little red lamp on the door interior, near the rear). It's sort of scary, but take a large flat head screwdriver, hold it horizontally, insert it in the crevice between the puddle lamp and the door and pry it off (be sure to hold your tongue in just the right position or you'll break the plastic).

After all the screws are out, just pull the door off gently from the edges, there are plastic 'clips' that hold the door on - not to worry, you'll see.

Inside the door you can see the door handle assembly. There is also a turnbuckle which can adjust the length of the arm that connects the door handle and the latch. The bad news is, you have to take the outside handle off to adjust this turnbuckle. It's more time consuming than it is difficult.

Anyway, there are four screws on the bracket that hold the outside handle on.

I found that a pair of simple pliers was the best method for loosening them.

BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO DROP THEM INTO THE DOOR ONCE THEY ARE LOOSENED!

Adjusting the turnbuckles is very important and they need to be adjusted to completely eliminate all free play from the external handles when the doors are closed but unlocked.

The standard Jaguar tool kit includes the right open jaw spanners to do the job. Other very small 8 & 7 mm open jaw spanners would also be OK. The front doors are no problem at all; the rears are difficult but possible.

The job can be made a little easier by buying a small 8 mm open jaw and heating and bending the shank about 30 degrees, as near as possible to the jaws and in the flat plane.

Chrysler passanger door problem...


I had the same problem with my Honda Civic a couple months ago. There could be a problem with the bell crank, the part that keeps the door shut. It could be broken or just not working right, and that's probably why your having problems opening and closing your door. You can take it to your Chrysler dealership or to a paint and body shop to get it repaired.

How can I fix the door handle on the inside of 1999 Toyota Coroll


It's probably broken, or unhooked. Just take your inner door panel off, and you'll soon figure out what's happening. Sometimes the rods get bent, or they come off the clip, or just need adjusting. And sometimes the handle itself is broken, but you can do it!
