SOURCE: Replace left hand inside door handle

There should be 2 screws on the panel, one near the lower pocket and one holding the handle in. Remove both of them and with a flat head screwdriver, carefully begin prying the panel away from the door as you pull the panel toward yourself with the other hand. You just want to release the plastic door panel inserts from the edges and center of the panel. You can then disconnect any clips for power door locks, windows, etc. The rod is connected to the handle by a small clip at the base, release the clip and pull the rod vertically up and out of the handle. Remove and replace the handle and reverse the steps for installation. When you are ready to reinstall the door panel, line up the clips to the holes on the door and strike the panel with your hand using the base of your palm to secure the panel to the door.

I have a 1999 kia sportage my driver door is closed an it isn't locked but it will not open for the outside handle or the inside handle what do i do to get it to open can't take panel off

If it's not locked but the handles aren't responding (they feel like they aren't really pulling on anything, no resistance) and the interior lights don't turn on when you pull the handles, you may have no choice but to get into that door panel. It's possible the door opening mechanism attached to the handles has broken, and should be looked at.

How to remove inside door panel on 2002 Kia Sportage

Look up from beneath the lower edge of the panel and used something dull like a butter knife to carefully pry the panel away from the door. You should then see the plastic buttons shaft that goes into holes in the door. These can be gently pried away from the door using needle nose pliers, or a special tool made for this. Next insure you have removed all screws in arm rests and door handles. Work your way around the panel edge popping out remaining plastic fasteners and then push up from bottom of panel to unhook top edge. If you break some of the plastic fasteners, parts stores have replacements.

On my 2003 sportage the driver door opening lever will not return fully flush but stays out. Is there a cure if the door panel is removed to expose the opening mechanism? Thanks Peter

I have the same problem with my sportage and a friend of mine has the same problem with his Rio. I have played with the mechanism on mine multiple occasions. I tried lubing everything, checking for damage, adjustments and so on and nothing seemed to help. in my opinion the only way to fix the problem is to replace the door handle.

200 Kia Sportage door lock remotes will not work

Did you replace them with the same batteries ? Some people assume all batteries are the same. Some are 3 volts, while others are only 1.5 volts.
