Fixing Exterior Sliding Door Handle (Driver's Side) 01 Mazda MPV

I'm going to buy a new door handle for my 2001 Mazda MPV but want to try to install it myself. It's the sliding door exterior handle on the driver's side. I'm assuming I can just take the panel off the interior and fix it from the inside out, but I want to make sure I only unscrew what needs to be unscrewed. I'm guessing this isn't too difficult of a task, but I'm not the handiest guy in the world, so I'm looking for a step-by-step instruction on how to get the door apart so I can install the new exterior door handle. THANKS SO MUCH!! Michael Campbell, Andover, MN

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 ;).

It appears he tells you to remove the door panel, but doesn't actually explain the process...
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge.

You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and disconnect the linkage to the outer door handle and then remove the bolts securing the outer handle to the door

Rear door handle broken. Mazda mpv 2001. lock works fine.


The relay rod inside the door has broken (not likely), one of the retaining clips that hold it in place are broken (most likely) or the tab on the door handle assembly is broken (again not likely). to gain access you will have to remove the door panel. You did not say whether the handle you are having a problem with is the interior or exterior but to remove the door panel you will need to have the door open, you might want to purchase a Haynes or Chilton manual for your car to get the proper instruction if you have never removed one before.

I have a Mazda MPV 2001 van that two of the automatic windows have stopped working. Is this something that I can fix myself?


On my MPV the problem was actually the Switch not the motor. Check the switches. You can access them by just pulling the door panel off. If you need some instructions for door panel removal let us know.

Hope this helps...

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you can readjust the window mechanics.

Broken exterior door handle,passenger sider ,sliding


Got this idea from mpvclub.com: Get some stainless or aluminum sheet metal screws, drill pilot hole into the handle and into the receiving part behind, then screw in the screw. Do on both sides of handle (get appropriate length screw.) When done, get some putty or hardener to fill in the screw slot, let dry, then sand smooth, then paint with body color. Result is great and inexpensive.
