the inside door panel will have to come off to get at the door handle. if you've never done this you should have someone that has do it, because they can be tricky.good luck

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.

taking off the door panel is a lot of work. i can explain it all to you if you still have the same problem. i've replaced all of my door handles for all 4 of my hyundai's doors, so i'm experienced in this department. would you like a step by step walkthrough still?

I had this exact same problem with my 2002 Accent. First the passenger side door failed, and then a couple days ago the driver side door failed as well. It's a small plastic part that snaps and can't be put back together with super glue (I tried). Found a website today called thepartsbin.com that had replacement handles (though they appear to be chrome only, and not the black plastic like the original). They were about $28 each, and $9 ground shipping. Was the cheapest of 3 different autopart websites that I looked at.
Getting the inside door cover off is a bit of a pain, but I am familiar with it since I had to take them off to install new speakers. Getting the door handle out itself is a whole nother pain in the ****. It definitely would require special tools, and it took two people to get the passenger side one out before. If you are so inclined, it's possible to fix yourself, but I would recommend buying the parts and then try to see if you can find an honest mechanic who can put them in for you. Dealerships will probably take you to the cleaners for 200-300 dollars easy with parts and labor.
