Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
Hi, I have purchased replacement exterior door handles from the wrecking yard to replace broken exterior door handles on my camry and was wondering if anyone is able to provide me with some instructions or diagrams of the schematics of the door handle/door assembly. Its kind of urgent because one of them is the drivers door and im sick of having to either climb over the console from the passenger seat to the drivers seat or leaning over and opening the drivers door from the passengers side :) Thanks for any assistance in advance, its really appreciated Anyone willing to send me the .pdf file?

To Remove Door Panel on 2001 Honda Accord:
A: To remove the plastic piece with the door lock button and door handle connected to it:
1- Remove the screw in the middle located behind a plastic cover button
2- Push (slide) the whole assembly Forward (toward front of car)
Besides the screw, it is held in place by 3 hooks on the backside that hook into holes in the metal door frame
3- Now unhook handle from small metal bar going through door by pushing (toward door) plastic clip (blue?) off of the bar, then the bar will come out of the clip hole, thus releasing the handle.
4- Depress little grey button /bar (purple painted on it)on elec. connector to seperate connector, thus releasing door lock switch
Now the whole assembly (metal handle, door lock switch, and plastic piece) will come off door panel
B: The door is held on by 2-screws, 7-plastic snaps/plugs, and 1-plastic plug.
The screws are located: bottom of hand hold and the other behind the handle, both covered by little covers that have to be pryed off to access the screws.(hint: the screw with the built in spacer goes behind the handle when you are trying to reinstall)
The 7-plastic snaps: 3 across bottom and 2 on each side. Not visible, they are mounted to the inside of the panel.
The 1-plastic plug is visible at the upper front of the panel and is the same color as the surrounding trim
C: Take off the big plastic triangle piece above the door panel and behind the mirror. Pull/pry off. It has 2 snaps holding it on. one near bottom and one near the front.
D: Light lens prys off from bottom. Unscrew (1/4 turn) the light assembly with bulb still intact from backside of panel
E: Remove the Hand-Hold/window switch assembly:

Two 10mm bolts, or nuts, hold the handle on from inside the door. dont forget to remove actuating rod from old handle. probably clip is broke also.

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

SOURCE: broken door handle
Yes, if it is actually really broken you can look for and aftermarket door handle or go to the dealer (which will be more money of course!).
There are many aftermarket dealers of door parts all over the web, just take your time!
I bought my own chrome door handles for a old muscle car I drive and it was approx$35 total for both door handles chrome and beautiful and the door locks with fittings and 2 keys!!!
