No major labor to fix and you can do this yourself. You have to remove all screws on the door panel, use a tool available at the automotive store. It looks like a flattened out screwdriver with a notch in the flattened end. This is to help pop the fasteners off with the door panel from the door itself. Tools is about $5.00.

After that, unclip the skinny rods to the the affected door handle. You can use a skinny screwdriver for this. Unbolt the 2 screws or bolts from the door handle and wiggle it out.

Install in reverse order.

Driver side door wont open from outside


Fortunately, it means that the mechanicals of the door opening device are working right, if you can open from the inside. The rigid wire that connects the outside handle to the door opening mechanism became loose, or a plastic connector broke. Disassemble the door panel, reach the handle from the inside, and see if there is a thin rod dangling somewhere, and if not broken, just put it back in place.

Driver door handle of 2000 handle broken in half


FIRST YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE INSIDE PANEL. AFTER DOING THAT, WITH THE WINDOW ROLLED UP REMOVE 2 PLUGS ON THE METAL TO ACCESS THE TWO NUTS THAT HOLD ON THE OUTSIDE HANDLE. WHEN REMOVED, YOU CAN UNHOOK THE RODS THAT ACTUATE THE DOOR RELEASE. THE INSTALLATION IS THE REVERSE. I HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, JUST ASK. GOOD LUCK

My door handle wont open my door on the drivers side. I have to roll down my window to open the door from the outside latch. Is it repairable, or do I have to replace any parts?


I have shaved door handles on a 2000 chevy silverado and the drivers side door just recently stopped opening it seems like its completely locked out and the door is closed so i cannot get to the bolts of the latch assembly when i hit the unlock button it unlocks half way and when you go to open the door it relocks itself even if you manually try to unlock the door and hold the lock forward it still wont open

Where to order door handle and how to put them on


I had the same on my 2003 accent on all three doors but I finally decide to do somenthing on my driver side since is a dragg having to open it from the passanger side. So this is what I did I took the pannel screws off and since I could'nt take off the window opener handle I just spin the door cover around enough to get to the two screws holding the outside handle once I was able to pull out I disconnecte the wire clip so can remove and work on it outside..
Once I had it outside I saw that the plastic part that broke in half was busted I put some JB weld to put together of course that didnot work on the first try busted again lucky for me I was an expert taking the whole thing out again this time in five minutes. the second time I drill a small hole on both of the broken parts and run a wire between both and just make sure when your try in it that the wire doesnot touch in between and does no get stuck. I Put everthing back together and it work so great that I can really pull on the handle and you can just feel the tension. Thats how all my handles broke by pull in on them real hard especially when there lock.....hope this help... I might fix the other two once I findout how to remove the window handle since it would be easier...
