Re: replace inside door handle 95 chev pick up
Got a 95' Silverado also. This happens from time to time. Start at the Bottom of the Door Panel and Loosen. Remove the Screws from the Top Panel. The Panel will Probably not come all the Way off so, You will need to work under it. That Handle is just Pinned. Once you get up to it Just remove the Pin. Buy some Replacement Plastic Clips for the Panel. You will need them!

inside door panel has to come off, then there are usually 1 rod on the handle pull, and one rod on the lock.. these pop off the rod and stay on the hanldle body. there should be @ 3 or 4 nuts on the back side of the handle. thease removed and the old handle shouold pop out.. dont force it... new handle in... .hand snug the nuts, put op rods back in proper holes, snap in clips... TEST BEFORE YOU PUT THE DOOR PANEL BACK ON...... saves lots of time if you happen to put the rods in wrong.
You can pick up the handle from your local GMC dealer. I paid roughly $90 for both (a bit high...but money well spent!) As noted, yes; you do have to remove the interior door panel. From there it's just a matter of removing 4 nuts (metric #10 socket), and replacing them back once the new handle is slipped into place! The bars that operate the door latches simply snap into the plastic clips attached to the handle assembly.
The operation sounds worse then what it really is. It took me longer to write up this review than it did to actually do the work! 5 minutes max...done!! Hell, if you're local; buy the parts
inside door panels are held on by plastic mushroom headed clips, you need to get your fingers under the bottom edge and pull sharply, be sure to first remove the door and window handles or the armrest (2 phillips screws under the rest, or 8mm bolt heads)
then just **** it hard, it will snap and pop and you'll think you're breaking something, but no you're not,
when you reinstll the door panel pick up and reinstall the plastic mushroom head fastners, then bang it into place with the flat of your hand, it pops right on again reinstll the window handles, armrest and you're done
Watch for wires to courtesy lamps, they have a snap disconnect/ reconnecter
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.
Just pull on the Bottom of the Panel and you will be Started. There are a Couple of Screws in the Top panel Like the Arm Rest and the Handle Housing. Got a 95' Silverado also. This happens from time to time. Start at the Bottom of the Door Panel and Loosen. Remove the Screws from the Top Panel. The Panel will Probably not come all the Way off so, You will need to work under it. That Handle is just Pinned. Once you get up to it Just remove the Pin. Buy some Replacement Plastic Clips for the Panel. You will need them!
remove the door panel, disconnect the linkage from the outer handle and remove the 2 nuts holding it into the door. assembly is reverse of removal. You can pick up a Haynes manual at most any auto parts store that will give you step by step instructions and in most cases shows pictures. Hope this helps.
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
Remove the snap ring from under the inside door handle and plate (a rag around the base of the handle and a left-right tug on the rag may loosen it, or look under it & pry the snap ring off with a small hook tool
Remove the door lock knob bezel; remove the screw & slide it rearward
Remove the door trim; Remove the two clips; slide a thin, flat wide tool under the panel and pry towards you, there are 8 clips to dislodge
Pull the door trim straight up once all of the clips are loosened.
