Question about 2006 Mazda 5
Hi, I broke the handle off my passenger-side sliding door of my 2006 Mazda 5 when the door had frozen shut. I have gotten a replacement handle from the dealer. However, the two screws I need to access are inside the door panel. How do I access these screws to replace the handle without damaging door panels, etc?
Your door should be held on with clips. Removing the panel is sometimes hard, just take a good WIDE flat head screwdriver, and whatever tool needed to remove the screws holding the panel on, and be careful. Check underneath the panel, by the inside handle, and the arm point for screws. Once removed, take your WIDE screw driver, and don't quite pry them off, more or less try to get it underneath and pull towards yourself. There is no real easy way, just try to be patient with it, and if you hit any binds, look for more screws, its just a matter of patience for sure.
