Broken door handle

My friend has a 2000 Camry with the door handle broken from outside. Seems a common problem and there is a number of people in the 97 Camry forum waiting for your PDF on the steps to take the door panel apart. Can you be so kind to email me (billychan2@yahoo.com) and those readers the pdf or post the detailed step online somewhere. Thanks.

My drivers side handle snapped off on a freezing day. I couldn't find a replacement kit, so I put a dresser drawer pull handle on by drilling a hole in the underlying metal and using the screw that came with the draw ti secure. It's worked for several months with out a problem.

Changing rear door latch handle


Take the plastic cover off from the inside. Fairly easy, a few bolts and some plastic clips holding it on. You may be able to open it from the outside but you'll have to take the inside cover off to replace the handle anyway. This is a common problem and if you need more detailed instructions just do a search on the net.

The left outside door handle on the 1998 camry does not open door. How can I fix it ? Thanks in advance ! Tony


you would have to remove the inner door panel. Inspect the door handle rods, its possible one of the plastic retainers came loose. It maybe possible the handle is broken fron the inside. Hopefully this helps!!

Driver side door handle (outside) and gas pedal 2000 Camry


Bring the vehicle into the dealer if you have a sticky gas pedal. This is a TOYOTA PROBLEM.
Door handle:
It easy ! You need a philips2_bing.gif and flat screw driver,and a needle nose pliar.
Use flat screw driver and pry out the two or three dust covers for the arm rest screws then use philips and remove the screws. Next use the flat screw driver and pry out the black plastic mirror cover from the inside of the door. Pry out the switch with the flat screw driver and disconnect it. On the side of the door panel just above the striker/loch mechanism is this plastic push pull type of a hold in screw. Use flat screw driver to get it to move a little then pull it out with the needle nose. Depending on which door your doing if you have a map folder in the door there are two more screw to remove on the bottom of the door.
Now the inside door handle is tricky it comes out in TWO pieces. Use philips and get the only hold down screw you see out.( you may have to pry out a little screw cover first) Now the inside door handle cover is removed by placeing the flat screw driver on the rear of the outside of the cover top and on the outside rear bottom to release the tangs that are holding it onto the panel.Pry it out lightly you may have to place the screw driver over the top of the door release button and pry that way. Don't loose your cool its a pain but it will fall out. Once its removed unhook the panel.

Next lift the plastic cover and remove the door handle hooks and levers . Basically use common sense this is easy stuff. There may be two screws from inside of door panel that keep handle in place . Then work handle loose from outside and inside . reverse for installation.

Driver door handle of 2000 handle broken in half


FIRST YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE INSIDE PANEL. AFTER DOING THAT, WITH THE WINDOW ROLLED UP REMOVE 2 PLUGS ON THE METAL TO ACCESS THE TWO NUTS THAT HOLD ON THE OUTSIDE HANDLE. WHEN REMOVED, YOU CAN UNHOOK THE RODS THAT ACTUATE THE DOOR RELEASE. THE INSTALLATION IS THE REVERSE. I HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, JUST ASK. GOOD LUCK

95 Toyota Camry All outside handles broken off


I had the same issue with both the inside and outside door handles of my '95 Camry LE.

They are not too expensive. $15-20 each, sometimes you can find a set of four for $50. Try Amazon.com, that's where I just bought my new handles.

Replacement is time-consuming, but relatively easy to figure out. If you have the Haynes manual for your car, it will describe the steps required to disassemble the door paneling and replace the handles.
Have a Phillips AND Flathead screwdriver handy. You will need both to disassemble your door.

Good luck!

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...).
