Question about 1993 Honda Civic 4 Door

Replace door handle honda civic

I have a replacement handle, but can't figure out how the rod that actually opens the door is attached to the new handle. The rod is threaded into a small cylinder that is attached to a hole in the new door handle mechanism. Is it a bushing or something that holds it in place? The hole in the new handle mechanism is not threaded.

IT is possible that the manufacturer realised a fault existed in the current design and changed to a threadless part that requires a nut either side to position it on the rod . Try something in the area to see if it works Nuts that small can be obtained from an electronic shop such as JAYCAR ---Hobby shop --etc

SOURCE: Remove the door panel on a 98 Honda Civic

You should have some little plugs in the plastic edge on the bottom that can be popped off, that will expose screws, there is maybe one screw behind the door handle, and maybe a couple in the door pull. Then once it is unscrewed, pop off the plastic retainers that hold it the rest of the panel and up it goes, past the lock button and off, except that it is still connected by wires, you should be able to see what's going on behind the handle without taking the wires loose, just lean it up against the door or the car. There is also a plastic wind barrier stuck on there with the stickiest stuff you ever saw, take off your watch. Hope this helps.

1998 honda crv door will not open from the inside but will on the outside

I am sorry to say that you did not read the question carefully: the door CAN be open from the OUTSIDE; i do have the same situation on my CR-V 1998; This has nothing to do with the latch itself: There is a connecting rod holder inside the dood which is probably broken (made of plastic) so when you open the door from inside,the rod connected to the handle goes away from the panel,and the course is too short; this plastic holding part must be replaced.

The door handle on the driver's side is broken...if you try to pull the handle the door does not open, you need to open it from the inside to get it open. How do we fix it?

1. You need to remove the door panel on the inside of the door first.
2. Make sure the window is all the way up.
3. Remove approximately 2 or 3 screws and the rod that is attached to the handle from within the inside of the door.
4. Replace with new handle attach screws and attach rod.
5. Put door panel back on and your done.

There might be hidden screws , usually at door handle , pluged with round plastic caps , or at door opening handle with small round cap.Look around and see what you can find .

How does the door linkage work i.e a diagram

There are plastic connectors that attach to the rod and attach to the latch. The rod usually hooks into the inside latch, the rod may be held to the door by some clips. Then the rod connects to the latch with a plastic retainer clip.

I am trying to fix a door handle that will not open from outside

Turn the window handle to where you can see a small 1/2" slot rt at its base where it meets the'll notice a small brass v shaped clip,you'll need hooked pick or something simular to hook this clip and pull it out of its slot,this release's window crank handle. Once this is off the rest of panel is held on by plastic panel clips that pull loose by pulling panel outwards from door ,and also by a few various screws. once panel is off temp. slide window crank back on and crank window all the way up. You then should have clear view of outer door handle. Handle has two rods attached to it,one for lock assy., one for latch release.This is the one you'll be looking at.Most likely you will find rod has came loose due to broken retainer clip at handle,or casting on handle itself has broken off.If clip is broke you can buy new clip at dealer or at some autoparts outlets,replace and reattach rod(make sure rod locks into place).If handle casting is broke will need handle replaced.It is held in place by two 10mm bolts,two rods preeviously mentioned. If handle is body color matched will need color code(on door jam sticker)to order handle from dealer to match.Lock assy will need to be transfered to new handle,it is held in by two spring clips.You notice two holes one on each side of lock,you will need to push release clips inwards through each hole to release lock and slide it install just push down into newhandlle until clips engage. Let me know if you run into problems. Good luck and if this was able to help you please leave me some positive feedback. Thanks and good luck, Joel

1997 buick park ave 4 door right front door handle won,t work from the outside

Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.
