You won't get a picture with step by step instructions unless you buy the proper toyota workshop manual and I think you have to take out a loan to pay it off as they are very expensive.
It is a matter of removing the armrest, door lock button,possibly the door mirror if it covers the trim, window winder if it has one, go around the perimeter of the door trim with a blade screwdriver or something flat like a bread knife and gently pry the trim away from the door panel, once it is loose you may have to lift it up as the weather strip may be part of the trim panel, once that is removed you will see plastic covering the door panel so you have to peel that away from the panel directly behind the door handle, there will be a metal rod running from the door handle to the lock, it is retained with a poastic type clip that you just pull back off the rod and remove the rod from the handle or the lock or both.
There will be holes in the door panel to give you access to the retaining nuts for the handle but you will need a small socket with extension arm to make the job a lot easier, if not you will have to use a ring spanner which will take a lot longer to do.
Hope this help you a little

Replace outside door handle


you need to remove the inside door panel first. there will be a screw at the inside door handle and two screws for the armrest in the center of the panel. look around the outside edges of the panel for any other screws or clips to remove. the rest of the clips are behind the panel and snap when you pull on the panel. once off with the window up you can see the door handle screws. two of them. remove the connecting rods first.depending on which door you may have a lock rod also. then remove the screws and the handle will come out. good luck

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!

How do i replace my outside door hanle on my 1998 toyota corolla


You do need to pull off the inner door panel. After the panel is off, you are going to need to disconnect the lock rods from the outer handle and the key cylinder to the door latch mechanism. You will need a long 1/4" drive ratchet and extension, and a 10 millimeter socket. The outer handle is held on by 2 10 mm bolts, you access them thru the inner part of the door. There is a hole provided, with clear tape over it, that will lead you to the harder to see bolt. After the bolts are out, remove the handle, swap the key cylinder into the new handle, and reinstall. Not hard at all. Please let me know if you need more information
