SOURCE: Mazda 5 replacing external handle on sliding door

Your door should be held on with clips. Removing the panel is sometimes hard, just take a good WIDE flat head screwdriver, and whatever tool needed to remove the screws holding the panel on, and be careful. Check underneath the panel, by the inside handle, and the arm point for screws. Once removed, take your WIDE screw driver, and don't quite pry them off, more or less try to get it underneath and pull towards yourself. There is no real easy way, just try to be patient with it, and if you hit any binds, look for more screws, its just a matter of patience for sure.

SOURCE: Need to know how to install exterior door handles

I'm assuming that you have the coupe not convertible since I've had same problem with my 97 Dodge Avenger and this is quite common from what I have heard. The handle is held in place by two 10mm bolts. One is easily accessable, located right beside the handle with the door open. The other is a little harder to get at. The first thing you need to do is remove the inside door cover, held in place by four screws and push in clips along the bottom that pull out easily. Two of the screws are visible and in the top corners of the door panel. One screw is located behind the inside handle and once removed the moulding comes off quite easily. The other screw is in the hand hold where you pull the door closed and has a small plastic cover over it. If you have power windows you are able to disconnect the switches once the panel is off. If manual windows, the handles are usually held on by a clip that can be pushed off with a screw driver allowing you to pull of the crank handle. The window needs to be in the closed position so you can access the ONE 10mm bolt holding the outer door handle. Once the interior door panel is off, if any clips remain in the door, take them out and put them where they should be in the door cover it won't go back together properly if you don't. Now you'll need to pull down the corner of the plastic covering the door, don't remove all the plastic just enough to allow access to the bolt. I used a small rachet to get it out. It is in a stupid spot with not much room but is doable. Once out, the handle is only being held by the lock rods to the handle and lock cylinder. The lock cylinder is held by a retaining clip which can be slid off allowing the cylinder to be pushed out. The other rod connected to the handle has a plastic clip on it holding it in place. This can be opened with a small screwdriver. Once opened the rod will come out easily and the handle should come off the door. The only problem reinstalling, that I had, was reconnecting the rod to the handle and found that if you unscrew the door latch, the whole mechanism can be moved down, giving you more freedom to work with the rod. You might want to do this before fighting with the clip holding the rod in place, just a thought as I got mine apart in 20 min. Installing the new handle is quite easy, just attach rod to the handle FIRST before anything else. Once the handle is back on the door the lock cylinder can be pushed back in, it just gets in the way if you put it in the handle right away. Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: broken passenger door handle

Same problem. I have a 2000 Suzuki Esteem GL. A year ago the driver's door handle broke. Heard a sound and then it was loose. Could not open it from outside. Had to open front passenger door, open the driver's door from inside and then go out again to enter from the driver's door. FRUSTRATING. My mechanic had to take the door apart to fix it. Just a week ago, my front passenger door died on me. Can't open it from outside nor inside. The door won't open. This is such a stupid problem that costs lots to repair. Never will buy a Suzuki again. Had too many problems with it (had to fix gas tank, doors that won't open, front axle...).

What part do I need? It opens from the inside. The handle is not snapped.


Are you saying the inside door handle isnt snapped,but the door wont open by pulling on the inside door handle or is it the outside door handle thats not working??Both the inside and outside door handle has a spring and other components on the backside of the handle which cant really be seen unless you remove the whole door handle assembly.One of these components are most likely broken or the rod that attaches between each handle and the locking mechanism(part that locks into the door striker to keep the door closed and releases it too)might have come loose from the back of the handle.The outside handle is usually mounted to the door by pop rivets or bolts/nuts.The inside handle is usually mounted with screws,but it really depends on what kind of car youre driving.Youll probably have to remove the handle to inspect it for damage.Open the door and watch the locking mechanism for movement while youre pulling on the door handle.If it doesnt move when you pull on the handle,the handle is definitely broke or the rod has come loose from the back of the handle.

Door handle repair for Ford fusion


The door handle will not allow unlocking from the inside. This is a common problem with the Ford Fusion 2007 to 2012 and other cars. A cheap piece of plastic breaks that connects the lock lever with the door handle. You can roll down the window and unlock from the outside or hold both levers together and pull open from the inside. This is a very simple repair. Go to any of many web sites for auto parts and buy a replacement. I bought a Dorman 81702 Ford/Lincoln/Mercury Interior Front Driver Side Replacement Door Handle. I popped off the lid that covers a hidden screw inside the recess of the door handle. You have to use a torque bit to unscrew the screw. I then unscrewed the torque screw holding the upper part of the door panel that is opposite the door hinge. The upper part of the door panel can be be carefully pulled away with moderate pressure allowing access to the door handle mechanism. One more bolt holds the door handle part in place. Pull out the broken door handle part, remove the locking cable and put in the new part. Reverse the process to finish up. The whole process took about 10 minutes.

Need diagram for replacing heater core



    Detach the heater core hoses at the firewall. The two black hoses attach near the firewall on the passenger's side of the engine compartment. Squeeze the hose clamps on the end of the hoses with pliers and slide the hoses from the heater core tubes.

    • 4Remove the lower passenger's-side and driver's-side dashboard panels. The two panels are held in with push-pins. Raise the center of the push-pins with a small, standard screwdriver and pull the pins from the panels. Pull the panels away from the dashboard to separate them from the dashboard.
    • 5Remove the center console. Separate the gear select trim piece from the center console, using a small standard screwdriver to pry the trim piece from the center console. Lift it over the shift knob and rotate it to clear the knob. Remove the retaining screws holding the center console in place with a Phillips screwdriver. Lift the console up over the shift knob and remove it from the interior.
    • 6Remove the glove box. Open the door to the glove box. Squeeze the two retaining tabs on the ends of the glove box and pull the glove box away from the dashboard. Remove it from the interior.
    • 7Detach the drain tube from the heater core cover, which is located behind the glove box. The tube can be pulled from the heater core cover by hand. Detach the air intake duct from the bottom of the heater core cover. The air intake duct runs from the bottom of the cover to the center of the dashboard. Remove the duct by hand.
    • 8Remove the retaining screws on the black heater core cover with a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the cover from the heater core and remove it from the interior. Remove the heater core clamp screw with a Phillips screwdriver, pull the clamp away from the heater core, then pull the heater core from the housing.
    • 9Place the replacement heater core against the housing. Place the clamp over the heater core and install the clamp retaining screw with a Phillips screwdriver. Position the heater core cover over the heater core and install the retaining screws with a Phillips screwdriver.
    • 10Attach the drain tube and the air intake duct to the heater core cover.
    • 11Install the glove box. Squeeze the retaining tabs on the sides of the glove box and push it into position against the dashboard. Release the tabs when the glove box is in position.
    • 12Install the center console. Guide the console over the shift knob and install the retaining screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Slip the shift selector trim piece over the shift knob and push it into the center console.
    • 13Place the lower passenger's-side and driver's-side dashboard panel in position. Install the push-pins into the retaining holes, pushing the in center of the pin to engage the pins.
    • 14Fill the radiator with coolant. Most climates require a 50/50 mix of DEXCOOL coolant and water. 2.2L engines require 8.6 qts., 2.4L

I need a diagram of the locking mechanism in my 2001 nissan sentra so that i can use a slim jim to unlock the passenger side door.


I don't have a diagram of the door but if you slip the slim Jim in over the top of the outside door handle it should catch on the latch bar. If you are doing this because the door won't open from the interior handle or the outside handle the problem most likely isn't the lock. The way that handle connects to the release it is held in place with a piece of plastic that breaks fairly easy. If that piece breaks the interior door handle won't activate the unlock function when pulled and you will have a heck of a time getting the door opened so you can get inside the panel to do the repair.

How to open the door frame of a 94 Saturn SL1, my window is off track and am trying to fix it but cant seem to get the door apart all the way


Start by removing the front door rear view mirror interior cosmetic piece.
Remove the 3 large nuts holding the mirror on and take it off the car.
Lift the door handle up and push the two small handle retaining pins out, take off the door handle. Unscrew all the bolts holding the door panel onto the frame, special driver needed. Lift the door panel up and away from the door. Reinstall in reverse order. If you are doing a back door, omit the mirror part.

How do i remove interior door panel & trim


Answer There is a small black plastic piece that surrounds your door handle. You MUST take that off, I find a small flat tip screw driver works best. The plastic cover that goes on the inside part of the door where your mirror is should be removed, makes it a lot easier to remove door trim: No screws on that part just grab from both sides and pull. 3 screws on bottom and 1 screw inside the armrest. The window crank, easiest way tried and true, shoestring, pull handle towards inside of car until you have enough room to fit the shoestring between crank and plastic washer. Give it a pull back and forth and it'll pop right off; clip should stick to shoestring as an added bonus.

2003 Ford Explorer back door latch will not open


Mine just did the exact same thing. The latch may be moving freely because it is not hooked to the latching mechanism anymore. In my case, the handle had broken where the handle hooks to the rod that operates the mechanism. Go to the Ford dealer and buy a new handle. Here in S.C. it was $24. You can't get this at the parts houses. Start by removing the plastic "Ford" cover that is over the liscense plate lights. You then have to remove the aluminum rivets that hold the handle to the tailgate from the outside and remove the broken latch. Remove the pull handle loop on the interior side of the tailgate (2 screws), unsnap the inside plastic tailgate interior panel, and pull down the black plastic sheeting that is underneath the panel to make access to the mechanism inside of the tailgate. There is also a hard plastic cover that you will see that needs to be pulled loose to open another access hole. Install the new tailgate latch handle by sliding back into the mounting holes and attach with two 10-32 screws and nuts. The new handle will come with a new yellow rod attachment piece on the handle. You will see inside of the tailgate a small rod hanging down, most likeky it will have the same rod attachment piece as the one on the new handle. Note the position of the yellow piece on the rod, as you will connect the new piece in the same place. Once the rod is hooked up, relubricate the metal mechanism with a light machine oil, replace the black plastic cover, replace the black plastic sheeting, (secure with a small amount of duct tape), replace the tailgate interior panel, replace the pull handle loop, shut tailgate, replace "Ford" cover over lights, and you're done!

Exterior rear door handle on Honda Accord 2001

A: To remove the plastic piece with the door lock button and door handle connected to it:

1- Remove the screw in the middle located behind a plastic cover button

The 7-plastic snaps: 3 across bottom and 2 on each side. Not visible, they are mounted to the inside of the panel.
The 1-plastic plug is visible at the upper front of the panel and is the same color as the surrounding trim

2001 Ford Explorer Sport


Common problem on 2001 Ford Explores. The reason why your door handle doesn't unlock the door(can't be unlocked by remote either)is due to a broken spring located on the backside of the door handel INSIDE the door. True that your one(or two) of your small exterior springs on your door handle are broken(will cause your handle to flap) but this IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM. The door locks will work if there is a bit of tension holding the handle bracket up. I know it's hard to explain without pics. but here's the ONLY WAY TO FIX THIS. It's not that hard.......... Remove the door panel, only a few screws and a few more holding trim around exit handle then, pull out "snap in" clips on bottom. With a flashlight you'll see back side of door handle. To get to that area you'll have to remove one bolt holding a window frame. Do that(with window in up position) then slide down rail, out of your way. Now, get back to handle. With your light aimed at the backside of handle left slowly the door handle as normal, and you'll realize(while looking at the mechanism) that tension(pulling down of bracket) needs to occur in order for locks(manual and remote)to work properly. Trust me.....you'll figure it out. Once you do, get a spring(pen spring, 30 cent hardware store spring, any small spring!) and hook one end to bracket and the other end to ANYTHING(OUT OF THE WAY) below the door handle thus, causing SLIGHT tension. Try your locks...THEY WILL WORK! YEAH! Replace that one window frame bolt(try your window...just the make sure), replace door panel and your done. TOTAL COST: 30 cents or FREE(if you have a small spring) Ford dealers will charge $150 to $285! Yikes!
