    I is a 2 door coupe, I don't beleive i need to take the door panels off. They are the door handles on the side that you pull down

    We got both handles on but the drivers side won't open. Is there a difference between the two, is there something different that we need to do with the drivers side. Could someone please help me with this, I don't seem to be getting a response

I found this on another page, hope it helps:)

Remove the plastic cover behind the door handle assembly by removing one black 14mm nut from just above the door handle, and 1 screw (usually phillips) from the bottom of the plastic cover.
Remove linkages from lock cylinder and door handle assembly. Use a small flathead screwdriver to slide retaining clips forward, and linkages will come free.
Remove one black 14mm nut from the very top of the door handle assembly.
Remove one phillips screw drom the bottom of the door handle assembly.
Door handle assembly should now come free by pulling out slightly at the top, and pulling upwards.
Transfer lock cylinder and key minder light (if applicable) to new door handle assembly. Lock cylinder is retained by a single TORX bolt.
Reinstall in reverse.
TIP: If you lose or damage any of those black plastic coated nuts, order new ones. They are GM p/n 10067214 and should be around $0.58/each. There are two on each door.

My sons's has a 1995 Grand Prix. He can not get in to either front door. He can unlock it from the inside, but can't open from the outside.

You will need to open the door, take the door panel off and reattach the connecting rod that goes to the outside handle.

Is there any special tools or requirements for removing and installing a new exterior (drivers side) door handle. Please describe the process. Thank you.

nope, just wind the window down, remove screws around the arm rest, pull panel out from door releasing plastic retainers, slide panel up out of window seal, remove plastic door dust shield , wind window up and you will be able to access handle through the inside of door, remove latch rod clip from handle, remove two bolts that screw to handle and thats it. Of course replace in opposite procedure

How to remove the exterior door handle of a 2000 pontiac grandprix?


To remove the exterior door handle of the 2000 pontiac grand prix, You will be needing these instruments, wrench set, Putty knife, Screwdrivers, Socket wrench set and please follow the steps below:
  1. Roll the door window all the way up. Disconnect the car battery's negative cable with a wrench.
  2. Remove all cover plugs on the interior door panel with a putty knife. Remove all armrests, door pulls, the window crank and trim-panel retaining screws with a screwdriver.
  3. Remove and disconnect any electrical devices in the door panel. Pry the controls out with a putty knife, and unplug the wires.
  4. Pry the trim-panel clips loose with the putty knife. Do not pry on the panel between the clips, or the panel could be damaged. Separate the trim panel from the door slightly, and disconnect the courtesy light. Remove the panel from the door, and peel back the plastic water shield.
  5. Detach the lock rods from the latch. Unhook the rods from the latch holes by hand.
  6. Remove the door-handle nuts with a socket wrench through the service holes in the door frame. Rotate the lock cylinder as needed for clearance, and pull the handle from the door.

2000 grand prix - speaker install

its really a common sense thing, im not trying to be nasty or rude, you will need to remove the panel, it actually has a screw that hold the handle together to the frame, on top of that you might consider grabing one fo things that look like a fork that will help you in removing the plastic type screws that hold your panel to the frame. Then just switch and remove.
