Re: hyundai accent '02 inside door handle & Lock removal
Removing the door is very tricky, trust me on this. I ended up breaking it the first time, so please learn from my mistake.
1. Remove all visible screws: 2 at bottom of door, 3 on front near
hinge, 1 on inside the door lever. You will need an average size
phillips screwdriver to do this.
2. On the door handle itself, you will see two circles. Pop the front
one out. You will need a LARGE size phillips screwdriver to do this.
3. Once screws are removed, take a (standard) flat-head screwdriver,
preferable one with a large face, and pry the triangular piece of
plastic (that covers the outside SIDE mirror) off. This will aide in
puting the door panel back on...TRUST ME!!!
4. Take the same flat-head screwdriver, and pry behind the door lock
(at the same time, push forward toward the door hinge). The assembly
should pop out.
5. Gently pry the door panel from the door, making sure not to break
any unnecessary pieces along the way. The door panel should be hanging
by the window sill opening.
6. This is where it will get tricky. It is advised that you use help
with this part: Angle the door panel at a 45 degree angle. AT THE SAME
TIME, slightly bend and twist the door lock handle until it fits
through the hole. You will see the 3 pegs the held it in the door from
before. Also note: Be careful not to break the 2 poles that are
attached to the lock.
7. After popping the lock through the hole, you should be able to lift
the door upward, and off the sill. Repeat these steps in reverse order
to re-attach door panel.
Be careful not to rip sound-deadening paper found on inside of door
unless you intend to remove or replace it! Not only does it prevent
dirt and moisture from entering your door (and possible rusting it from
the inside out), but it makes your speakers sound better too!
**It is also recommended to put a tiny bead of silicone on the inside
of the door panel to help suppress any rattling, and prevent moisture
and dust from entering. It also helps your screws obtain a tighter fit.
Hope this helps!
Re: hyundai accent '02 inside door handle & Lock removal
There's a metal spring type circlip that holds the handle. Every car mechanic has a special tool to remove the window crank which is really hard to remove in that car (I broke them two and had to buy new ones)... It might work using a screwdriver but I had succed using an old rag... Hope this helps !

The control panels are often held in place by either spring tensioners or some built into the plastic frame of the panel and can be pried up and out.
They pretty much depend on gravity to keep it in place.
Once free of the panel, turning it may allow it to be passed through the hole in which it normally resides.
I would try first to pry with an old credit or bank card before resorting to metal tools.
yes remove the panel, unhook the linkage one for the lock and one for the latch remove linkage from the handle not the latch, then remove blots holding handle then remove handle from outside the door, you will have to swap the lock to the new handle and then install new handle.

remove door panel which is attached by screws,peel away plastic liner and look inside door at back of door handle..using needle nose pliers pop off the small steel rods that are for inside door mechanism,then remove the one bolt that attaches the handle to the inside of door and from outside of door remove handle.Replace in reverse order!
1. Remove the 4 screws and the screw in the opening mechanism. 2. Remove the cap on the lock button. 3. Remove the mirror lever cap by pulling it straigt out. It is attached with one clip. 4. Remove the door crank by detaching the C-clip between the spacer and the door panel. It's tricky and somekind of hook could be useful. 5. Pull out the plastic clips. Be careful. I think a spatula could be a useful tool. 6. Move the panel forward and up to remove the opening mechanism from the door. Then pull the mechaninsm out from the panel, turn it and push it back through the panel. 7. At this point the panel should be removed and you can see the door speaker and the adaptor. As you can see the opening mechanism remains on the door. To put the doorcrank back just put the pieces together in the picture and push it in position.
Good luck and Do rate the solution as FixYa if found useful.
STOP!!! there is no need to break the inner door handle!!! The inner door handle is secured in place with three prongs yes, but they do not need to be broken to remove it. They are secured by inserting them into place and sliding back. To remove simply slide forward and pull out.
This takes some wiggling but it will come eventually. also take note that this should be done after removing all screws and loosening and unhooking the door panel itself. To get the panel off around the inner handle, turn the panel 90deg and slide the handle back through its opening.
