Find and remove two screws visible on the door panel, including underneath small covers. Pop them off with a small screwdriver. Lift front edge of control panel, then pull forward and lift out. Pull upper door panel from door. Disconnect courtesy light connector. Disconnect door open handle cable assembly and door lock cable assembly. You might need to lift panel and twist to get it off.

Driver side door


Hi Paul, I'm glad to help! Most problems with door handles that won't open the door is broken parts inside the door. Pull the door panel off and move the handle while watching inside the door to see what is broken. Once you've found the broken part, simply replace it. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Paul.

Remove inside door handle driver side hyundai elantra 2001


probably not. most inside door handles are push on and held with a spring clip that requires a flat tool that slides between the handle and the plastic washer or the plastic plug in the center of the handle prises out and ther will be a small screw to remove then the handle slips off. Normally the screw has a 8 mm head or a philips screw recess

I have a 2000 Toyota Camry. The door knob on the driver's side is broken and I want to replace it myself. I have already bought the spare part. How do I replace it????


Pop out the inside door panel to access the handle from inside. Take off the cotter pins holding the rods to the latch, take out the screws that hold the handle put in new handle and the rods with the cotter pins and reinstall the inside door panel.

How do i replace a drivers side external door handle it is broken at the pivot point were the rood connects


You will need to remove the door panel from the inside to gain access to the door handle bolts on the inside of the door panel. There should be two nuts to remove and then the door handle will come out.

Driver side door mechanism


Can you open the door with the inside handle? If you can, the problem is probably a broken plastic fitting inside between the outside handle and the door latch. There are door panel removal tools available at your local parts store that look like short handled wide bladed pry bars. You could get by with a good stiff putty knife if needed. Take off the arm rest, window crank, and speaker grill if you have aftermarket speakers. Slide the door panel removal tool under the edge of the door panel and CAREFULLY pop the clips loose from the door frame. You could always leave the window open and do the "Dukes of Hazard" thing, but then you would have to change the paint scheme.
