Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Not that many models in my country. However, on most cars, there would be a square or round plastic cover flushed on the door handle that must be pried out to expose the screws underneath. It would be hard to distinguish since they are made of the same color and material as the door handle. Procedures for an earlier model might be of idea/help.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa

Driver side door is jamed shut. ouside door handle and inside door handle broke. can't open door. how do i get the door open or can you take inside driver side door panel off with door closed?


i don't know about taking the panel off with the door closed, but you should be able to remove the inside handle. there should be just one screw holding it in it should be right in the middle usually it is covered with a plastic cap. once you get the handle off manually pull the mechanism and open the door.

How do i pop the door panels off my 2003 mitsubishi outlander?


i am not familiar with this exact problem but most cars have a combination of screws and plastic push fasteners. look in the area of the door handle and see if there are screws usually they will be in the area where your hand grips the door. some times there are screws on the panel at the bottom of the door. i have found those screws by actually laying down and looking up at the bottom of the door panel. once you think you have removed all the screws try lifting up on the door panel. sometimes they have hooks on the back that will disengage as you lift the door panel. if the panel does not lift try using a wide putty knife around the edge of the door gently lifting with increasing pressure to remove teh push type fasteners. you can also get a special tool that is shaped like a spoon with a slot down the middle so you can lift on either side of the fastener. good luck hope this helps

Removing rear door panel


On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls.

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.

Passenger side rear door window not working need to know how to take door panel off.


Thier is a Metal panel behind the door panel.
Both need to be removed

Yes. If your window has fallen down and will not roll up.
99% Chance you car is suffering the Infamous VW plastic clip.

The door panel comes off With a T-10 torx or a Hex (Allen) wrench
that will fit and A large Philips Screw Driver..

Remove the Plastic cover on the inside Door handle.
And the Screw or Screw along the Bottom of the door panel.
Then remove the screws that hold the handle the the door.
They are located behind the Plastic plate you removed with a tiny screw driver earlier... Be careful not the mark up the cover whaytprying it up. It is best to pry from underneath. Where marks if made can not be seen

After the screws are out 4 I believe. The Use of a CLip tool ir best.
For getting behind the panel to pop it off. A screw driver will work.

After all the clips are released. Pull the light at the bottom of the panel down and out. Disconnect it ur push it back thought the hole it came from..

Now you need a 10mm socket, or wrench to remove the 12 bolts that hold the metal plate to the Door. Remove all the 10mm bolts, If the widow has not already fallen in the door. It should be released. By removing the Black 2" plugs. THe loosen the bolts that clamp the window the the arms. DO NOT LOOSEN THEM ALL the way, .
Disconect the all the wiring.. THe Door lock cable,can be a pain.
I think it pulls down,.
Next remove the Metal plate. that is the regulator.


reverse to install

Replacing speakers in Mitsubishi Galant


If the car is an 03 galant it is very simple to remove.
DRIVER SIDE:
Remove the window crank if it is not Electric Window.
Remove the Screw that holds the "Open Door Handle" cover.
Remove the Screw that holds the "Pull Handle Pocket"
Remove both plastic covers.
Remove all 3 hidden crews that have a plastic cover over them.
One is toward the front of the door top and the other two are toward the rear of the door top and bottom side.
Carefully pry around the door trim panel to disengage it from th retaining clips, along the sides and bottom. If you have electric windows, disconnect the if from the door trim to access the speaker. Same procedure for both doors.
