Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
My rear driver side door will not open from outside (it works from inside). I got a replacement door handle from Honda. Is it possible to get a diagram or instruction on how to replace a door handle on my Honda Accord 2001 LX 4-door car?
Thnak you in advance.
To Remove Door Panel on 2001 Honda Accord:
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
2- Push (slide) the whole assembly Forward (toward front of car)
Besides the screw, it is held in place by 3 hooks on the backside that hook into holes in the metal door frame
3- Now unhook handle from small metal bar going through door by pushing (toward door) plastic clip (blue?) off of the bar, then the bar will come out of the clip hole, thus releasing the handle.
4- Depress little grey button /bar (purple painted on it)on elec. connector to seperate connector, thus releasing door lock switch
Now the whole assembly (metal handle, door lock switch, and plastic piece) will come off door panel
B: The door is held on by 2-screws, 7-plastic snaps/plugs, and 1-plastic plug.
The screws are located: bottom of hand hold and the other behind the handle, both covered by little covers that have to be pryed off to access the screws.(hint: the screw with the built in spacer goes behind the handle when you are trying to reinstall)
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
C: Take off the big plastic triangle piece above the door panel and behind the mirror. Pull/pry off. It has 2 snaps holding it on. one near bottom and one near the front.
D: Light lens prys off from bottom. Unscrew (1/4 turn) the light assembly with bulb still intact from backside of panel
E: Remove the Hand-Hold/window switch assembly:
