Get two new handles.

Unscrew the phillips screw located in the center of the handles. Slide the handle assembly backwards and out. Unclip the clip that holds on the metal lock-rod (needle nose pliers helps with that), and remove the lock rod. Fit the rod into the new handle's clip, and snap the clip into place on the new handle. Slide the front end into the door cavity, and then the back side. Reinsert the phillips screw. Very easy to do.

How can I fix the door handle on the inside of 1999 Toyota Coroll


It's probably broken, or unhooked. Just take your inner door panel off, and you'll soon figure out what's happening. Sometimes the rods get bent, or they come off the clip, or just need adjusting. And sometimes the handle itself is broken, but you can do it!

1999 Toyota Corolla interior door handle


There's two screws by the handle, pull those out and you'll see how it all connects on the inside. I was able to remove my broken one, and drill a hole into the plastic where it broke and reuse it - it's lasted over 4 years now.

Broken outside door handles (front left and right)on 1999 Corolla. How to remove the interior door panels to get access to the handle?


I have the same problem on a Toyota Tercel 1997. I am trying to remove the door panel with the door closed (I can not open the door because the door knob is stuck in the lock position). I think I will have to cut through the panel. Have you found something ? My e-mail is philippe_oreilly@yahoo.ca
