Question about Cars & Trucks
I need to no all details how to get to old one to get it off and put new one on
You must be the person that wrote another question. Now I understand that one.
To change the outside door handle, you must open the door and roll up the window. ( Not necessarily in that order.)
Then you must remove the door panel, being very careful not to break or lose the several plastic and/or metal clips that hold it on.
Normally, there may also be a few screws as well.
After that, remove the plastic water cover that covers the sheet metal of the door.
Keep this to install later, you will need some good tape to put it back on.
Find some sockets and wrenches that will remove the handle nuts from the inside of the door through holes you can see.
Most of the handles have wire-like rods that are have plastic tips that can come apart for removal of the handle or latch.
Be sure not to break these, as then the handles will no longer work.

Have you been replacing the handles with aftermarket replacements made in China. If so, spend the extra $$ to get the parts from a GM dealer. They obviously break too but perhaps not as easily.

SOURCE: Door handle repair
Then you'll have to remove the inside door skin. It's not too difficult. The hardest part is if you have manual rollup windows, you need to remove a clip behind the window crank and sometimes it will fly off and get lost. Remove all screws you can find (some are behind plastic covers, like for the inside door opening handle, after removing that one slide it to the front of the car to remove the handle), one or more may be hidden under the bottom carpeted area if you have that (run your fingers around the edge area to feel the holes). After all that the door skin should be held on by 'panel pops' sometimes these break if the cars old or if your not carefull. You can get replacements cheaply enough.
If you need anymore help let me know.

The Door Panel Has Got To Be Removed.
Start By Removing The Handle Cover You Mentioned On The Handle Careful Not To Break It . A Small Screwdriver Can Help.
Next Remove Black Piece By The Window By Pulling It Strait Outward. Then Remove The Screw Cover On The Actual Handle You Use To Close The Door. Remove The Screw From Below It And There Is One Under The Front Edge Of It As Well. There is 2 screw along the bottom edge of the door as well. then remove screw up by the mirror. now remove this little plastic clip right on the side closest to the outer edge by pressing the center and pulling the whole thing out. Then There Are 2 10mm screw that hold on the door latch remove and slide the whole handle forward and it should come free. Now Reverse all these steps with the new handle in place.
THIS SEEMS HARDER THEN IT IS I PROMISE.
If You Have Any Questions What So Ever Please Feel Free To Post Then And I Hope I Helped At least A Little.

yes. you should remove the inside door panel.
to do this, remove all the screws you can see. One in the door handle, one by the mirror, then remove window crank/buttons
the take a flathead screwdriver and CAREFULLY pry the panel off. it is best to pry where the plastic pins are holding the panel on.
reverse procedure to reinstall.

I checked Ford Focus mirror replacement and it seems to be the same. This is for the manual, unheated mirror.
Remove the mirror cover inside the door - slide a screwdriver behind the cover and pry loose carefully.
Remove the single 10mm bolt and the mirror comes free.
NB. Do not drop the bolt into the door.
