SOURCE: changing outside door handle drivers door

first disconnect the negative side of battery and then open the door and start looking for small black screws or nuts then remove you find some hidden behind what look like little doors that you will need to remove with a screw driver becareful not to pry the plastic completely out of the door panel itself because if this happens you will have to figure out a way to repair so the panel will stay on the door get a thin pry bar to this job or a butter knife

SOURCE: Need to remove interior door panel

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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

You first need to remove the interior door panel. and then you will have access to two nuts that bolt the handle to the car. Remove the nuts and the handle slides out. If you are not familier with interior work then you may be best to take it in to the shop.

Cannot remove outside door handle


If you look under the handle you will see two round flat rivet heads. You will need to remove the door skin. Roll the window all the way down. Pull the plastic trim up off the window regulator arm/handle and unscrew it, there is a screw inside the arm rest in the place where your fingers go, and another screw behind the inside door handle that holds the plastic molding in place. After those are unscrewed it is just a matter of popping off the skin with a suitable pry bar or trim plug pry bar tool (the door skin is attached by plastic barbed plugs that go around the outside of the door) Pry from the bottom 1st, then the sides. Lift skin away from door from bottom and then pull up to remove skin from door...this will release it from the top where the skin attaches inside the door next to the glass.
Temporarily attach the window handle and roll up the window. Cut the doors inside plastic liner to gain access to the inside (Duct Tape this all back up air tight when re-assembly). Keep that window handle close...you may have to adjust the window height to move the glass/arm out of your way.
Once the outside handle is drilled out (use a big drill bit and go just deep enough to break the head off then use a punch to drive out the rivet) you just have to unhook the metal arm that goes to the latch. Bolt on a new handle and re-assembly is reverse of disassembly. Take advantage of having the inside of the door open to lube up the window regulator or even spray a good dose of Rust Check etc inside to protect it from rust. Rangers are pretty bad for having the bottoms of the doors rust out.
