SOURCE: Replace exterior driver door handle

If you remove the inner door panel of the door there will be plastic weather shield covering most of the door. Use a hair dryer or heat gun to heat the weather shield up and slowly peel it away. There will be 2 (10mm I believe) bolts on the inside of the door panel to release the handle (have someone catch it from the other side). To re-install simply connect he handle rod and 2 bolts then place the door panel back on and your done. A word of advice is be gentle with the door panel so not to damage the door pins or crack the plastic. Taking your time can be fun when learning a car ;).

How do you remove the interior door handle on an el camino

If you push back the panel so you can see behind the handle, you will see a stainless steel wire clip. Just hook it from the backside with a coat hanger wire that you've bent a small "L" on the end about an eighth inch. If you put it in the back of the loop and pull it comes right out, To put it back together, put the clip on the handle and just press it onto the stub. I actually use a small thin screwdriver that I've heated and bent just for that job but the coat hanger will work just as well.

2006 Ford Fusion. Left front door inside handle

This link is from the handle to the latch. The door panel has to be removed in order for this problem to be fixed. The linkage is inside the door panel, it is a small diamater metal rod called a link. If you do the job yourself be careful not to break the door panel. In a shop, the labor is 1 hour for the job & if any, parts will be a seperate charge.

How do you remove the drivers side door handle on a 2000 GMC pick

Hi those are somtimes a pain ,I,m not sure which part your at on your job but once you release the linkage that is attached inside your door panel then you should be able to remove the nuts or screws that hold the door handle in from the inside then when you get the handle out from the truck then remove the lock ,also put some masking tape around the paint on the outside of the door ,because when remove the handle from the door and putting it back in you may have to angle the handle a bit for it to fit back into place ,sometimes a long pick with a 45degree tip on it helps alot when removing the inside linkage ,hope this helps ,let me know if I can help further!

Front driver side door wont open from outside.

Sounds like its the bar that goes from the latch in the side of the door up to the handle. It will need to be reattached. If that dosent seem to be the problem you may want to replace handle and all bars in the door with parts from your local junkyard.

2000 Silverado Exterior Door Handle

If you have the panel off, just look up at were the outside door handle is mounted. You need to unbolt the rest of what is left....usually a metric fastner. Next, there should be 2 small access holes, probably covered by plastic sheeting. These holes are for the socket to reach them. There are a few clips that need to be popped loose from the rods but take your time and use a thin flat tipped screwdriver. And when you go to reinstall the new handle, you'll have to manipulate the handle into the door skin or the "hole" where the door handle goes.

Just take your time and you can do this.

Good luck!

99 gmc suburban driver side door will not open from inside

My son and I both have 99 suburbans. We both had exactly the same issue. We found the the latch or handle inside the cab on the drivers side had broken off inside the door. Not a big deal. Go to a site called " Parts Train". You can buy virtually any part for your truck there. Get a new inside door handle, pull the panel and replace it. Not an easy job to getting door panel off or back on, but I guarantee this is the problem. You won't have a problem with the passenger side because it is used less. At Parts Train make sure you order the same color as your old one. Take your time and do a good job and you will have your fix.
