SOURCE: 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!

-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!

SOURCE: replace door handle and lock 08 dodge charger

check that all screws have been removed from door. Hidden screws often found behind reflectors in door. Use prying tool and gently pull bottom of door panel away from doorm on/in door handle and near mirrow within door jam. Lay on the ground and look between the door and panle. You can usually see the plastic clips holding the door in place. Once bottom is loose you should be able to lift the door up and off of the door. Watch for power window and lock wires when removing. If manual windows, slide a rag behind window crank and move back and forth to remoce clip which holds crank on.

SOURCE: Need detailed diagram of 1998 latch mechanism to remove connections from it

there is no diagram... the latch is also a non-servicable latch, so if your problems in the latch- it needs a latch. i would look more closely at the outside door handle itself as i have seen a few of them break on the E series vans.you may be able to get detailed instructions thru autozone.com or @ autozone. hope this helps and good luck

Door adjar light stuck on on your Ford, Lincoln, or Mercury?


<span>This is a common problem for these makes. They use a door ajar switch that is attached to the door latch assembly. The most common one to fail is the driver front. <br /><br />Something you can try is clean the out side of the door latch, the part that actually holds the door shut, with brake clean. Don't be afraid to liberally spray into the latch assembly. Let it dry and then liberally spray the same area with penetrating lube. Again don't be afraid to spray it in every nook and cranny you can get into. Then open and close the door several time. Spray it again with the penetrating lube and repeat a couple of times. <br /><br />If the door ajar light goes out when the door is closed problem solved. If the light continues to stay on you have two options. <br /><br />1. Your can remove all the door panels and unplug the door switches one at a time until the door ajar light goes out. Again the switch is located on the latch assembly and has a two wire connector. Once you find the one that is stuck you can remove it and either clean it/lube it until it starts to work again or replace it. The switches twist into position in the latch assembly and if it's your first one it may be easier for you to remove the latch from the door to understand how the switch is attached. Neither is an easy task your first time. <br /><br />2. You can have a shop use a scan tool to communicate with the GEM module to see what switch is stuck open. You can then focus on that door. There will be a diagnostic charge for this. Call around and see what various shops in your area charge for this. They will know exactly what you are talking about when you explain the problem as it is very common. <br /><br />Hope that helps!</span>

The back driver's side door buzzes when I lock and unlock it


The actuator is held in place by 3(?) or 4(?) screws on the latch side of the door. Make sure window is all the way UP! First, remove the door upholstery and the splash liner. Next, disconnect the two metal linkages running from the lock/latch assembly. You may now remove the screws holding the actuator in place. Remove electrical plugs. Transfer the linkages, plug in the electrical connector, slide the assembly back into the door, replace the screws, etc. After an hour or 2 you should have a repaired lock assembly and no more buzzing. Expect to pay around $65 including shipping for the new actuator. Good luck...

How do i remove rear passenger door panel on 2006 freelander


I just finished doing this so I am going to put the steps in order and very clear:

Remove the one screw which hold the plastic under the door latch. Do this first since if you take window control piece out first and you drop the screw it ill go into the door and you might have trouble finding it later.

Pull up on the plastic with the window control, using a flat head screw driver, come up easy. Unplug the wire.

Pry off the cover on the door pull arm, start from the bottom comes off easy again with flat screw driver.

Unscrew the three screws (large flips head), Pull out the screws and save so you don't loose.

Start from the bottom and pull out the panel now from the door, using a weed puller or a long flat head screw driver. Most come out OK, if they come off the panel you can reattach to the panel.

Lift panel off door and up and it is done.

Window motor assembly is attached to the door by 3 bolts. It is attached to the window with one other bolt (10 mm, all of them). Window needs to be down 2/3 of the way so you can access the bolt.

The motor and other parts comes out of the hole pretty easy.

Install new assembly, attach wire, lower window so the connector for the window attachment is moved down (it comes in the up position).

Attach window with the bolt. Attach the assembly to the door (3 bolts).

Put the panel back up in reverse order.

I have taken a lot of doors apart and this was actually one of the easiest, Freelander is a piece of junk in maintenance department so good to know how to take it apart. Have to take the other side apart soon to fix the door lock actuator.

Driver door sensor light not working


It may be the sensor switch. I replaced one on an Audi which was built into the door latch and I vaguely recall at the time that VWs are similar. If you don't have a visible switch somewhere along the door frame, it's probably built right into the door latch and it appears they wear out fairly often. If that's the case, you'll need to pull the door panel off, remove the latch assembly and replace. You may need to replace the entire latch assembly if the switch itself isn't replaceable.

I have a 2002 taurus and the dome light stays on and the locks click up and down. The door light stays on and after a while of driving it will click off and buzz.


This is coming for ford products. They use w door ajar switch that is attached to the door latch assembly. The most common one to fail is the driver front.

If the door ajar light goes out when the door is closed problem solved. If the light continues to stay on you have two options.

1. Your can remove all five door panels and unplug the door switches one at a time until the door acharya light goes out. Again the switch is located on the latch assembly and has a two wire connector. Once you find the one that is stuck you can remove it and either clean it/lube it until it starts to work again or replace it. The switches twist into position in the latch assembly and if it's your first one it may be easier for you to remove the latch from the door to understand how the switch is attached.

MY DRIVERS SIDE DOOR WON'T SHUT... THINK THE LITTLE LATCH THING IS BROKE, HOW DO I REPAIR?


did you try lubing it with some lithium grease as most of the time, it's just something rubbing. If that doesn't work, you'll need to 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 pull off the seal in order to see inside the door. then loosen the bolts holding the latch assembly down and then disconnecting the rods connecting to the latch assembly and remove....
