No need to get new door if it's only the handles that broke off, unless they fell through the rust or something. Buy a new set of handles from dealer or parts place, or even autorecycler (wrecking yard) and change them.

I need written instructions on how to replace a outside driver side door handle for an 06 ford focus


Close/wind up the window. Remove the inside door panel. Be careful with power window switch and door speaker wiring connectors. Disconnect them before pulling the door panel away. Remove any plastic covers that may be glued to the door. Have a look at the door handle from inside the door. You will have some idea as to how to remove it. Usually door handles are secured by screws from the inside. Locate and remove them. Remove linkages to the door handle then pull handle form outside.

Ned to install right outside door handle to a 1997


rule of thumb remove all visible screw icluding in around arm rests and bottom of door panel. two types of nylon fasterns on the inside of panel one is where the snap goes directly into the metal wall the other style that hook in -Note never pull out toward you on a hook style you must lift and pull at the same time with slight pressure. when pulling panel it better to also you a small wedge to help assist looks similar to a door wedge -locksmiths use this.also on many fords you can remove the panel still keeping the electrical connected as well just easy at a angel threw the hole it sits in.

The outside door handle doesn't work but the inside one does what do I need to replace on an 96 f 250?


You should open the door first...take the interior trim panel off, access the "innards" of your door. It could be as simple as a clip that needs to be reattached or replaced or it could be the handle itself. Open up your door and move the handle and watch the attaching points to make sure it's all attached and in the correct number of pieces...
If you need help removing the door panel we can help you with that as well. (usually the screws are around the inside latch and behind the door courtesy lights.... let us know how it goes!

1997 buick park ave 4 door right front door handle won,t work from the outside


Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.

1992 Ford Explorer Sport. Outside door handle not


Door handle seems loose and not connected? Then the plastic clip broke inside the door. Take off the door panel, 3 screws, and door lock cap and plastic insert around inside door handle. pry around the bottom first, and go up, when you reach the top, pull up, please be carefull to not break any more plastic. you will see a squarish opening midway up the door toward the latch. reach in and pull a rod toward the opening. You see a broken piece of plastic on the tip? if so take it off and get the replacement part for it at an autoparts store, install the new one and your set. I have broke to many of these so i ended up bending the end of the rod and using a nut to hold it in.:]

Ford explorer 1997 xlt, the inside door handle does not work


I had the same problem and I finally found the solution after taking the panels from the inside of the door. Ford makes these vehicles with plastic clips to hold the bar that releases the latch and after so much repetitive usage of them they break. so most likely you will need to go to a ford dealership to get these clips which are stupidly priced at $3.00 a piece. All you need to do is take out the old pieces and put in the new and they'll most likely last you for another 10 yrs. but that's not a guaranteed fix from Ford.
