    I have been told there is a small (secret) screw one cannot see behind the stupid door handle? I removed the regular one, done see the other, and no matter how i wiggle or pull, something is till holding the door handle and lock mechanism in place. grrrrr.

  • Rhynoboi Apr 13, 2009

    ok, sorry, last ? I hope. The locking part of the door handle, removed by prying it out one the single screw is removed? It seems to be on the upper part of the door panel pretty hard, I dont want to break the hard plastic by prying on it. Should I pry on the back of it where the lock is located or the front?

    Thanks

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!

-SportTunerFreak

**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!

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 !

    Me again ! sorry I read to quickly and thought you needed help to take off the window crank.... Theres no trick for the door handle/lock you just have to "shake it" or try in any angle... Its really hard to break so dont worry just try harder ! Good luck !

Removing inside door handle


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.

Replacing a outside door handle on 1995 hyundai accent


Hi

Please follow these steps :

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.

Thanks
Rylee

Removing 2004 hyundai accent door panels


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.
Good Luck
