Many interior panels have additional screws running along the bottom and sides of the panel. They are normally visible and easily accessible when the door is wide open. Compare this first with the right side door of your vehicle.

The key area to look for is any screw that holds the side of the panel. When you remove this (exhausting all patience and guile :-D), you can force off the interior panel rail along the window. The small gap can afford you or an automotive locksmith access to the locking mechanism and open the door.

Hope this helps.

Exterior door handle on 97 thunderbird


You will have to remove the door panel. To do this use a phillips screwdriver and remove the two screws under the inside door handle. Then lift and remove the section. Remove another screw from the interior lower left corner. Pry the window crank apart "if exists" then use a T20 torq bit to remove the screw in handle. Remove the panel by lifting and pulling at same time. With window in up position you can see inside the hole a rod going from the door handle to a bracket with a Yellow clip. Slide the clip to the open position and pull the rod out of the clip. From the outside of door under the handle there are two rivets. Use a punch and knock out the center of each rivet. Then use a 1/4" drill bit and drill out the rivet. A flat tip screwdriver will be used to knock off the rest of the rivet. You will need two flat head screws and lock nuts or to reinstall the handle. Lift out old handle with attached rod. Twist rod as you pull to remove it and install it into the new handle. Place the rod through the hole and look inside to be sure is will move to the location of the yellow clip.Install the screws from the outside and the nuts from the inside and tighten. From inside connect the rod to the yellow clip. Lift on the rod while closing the clip. Then test door handle. If it doesn't work properly the rod was not lifted or pulled outward enough. Redo that step until you get it right. Reinstall inner panel as removed.

  • Set of screwdrivers
  • L pick
  • Small flashlight
  • Ratchet and socket

      Check out how the door panels are attached to the car. Most panels use screws and bolts but others have snap-in fittings. Gather all the tools you need for removing the door panels. If the panel is attached with screws and bolts, you need a screwdriver or ratchet and socket. Car door panels with snap-in fittings are easily removed with a flathead screwdriver.

    • 2

      Locate where the screws and bolts are before starting. These are usually found in the arm rest area, along the bottom or sometimes near the door lights.

    • 3

      Roll down the car door window. Begin removing all screws and bolts that hold the door panel onto the car. If your car has snap-in fittings, pry gently on the bottom corner of the door panel until the fittings pop out.

      Remove the power window control panel if your car has power windows. The control panel should pry out easily, and then you unplug the wiring harness from the back and place it to the side.

      Use an L pick and flashlight when locating a manual window crank. Look behind the window crank and slide the pick under the edge of the metal clip that holds the crank in place. Remove the clip and pull the crank off.

    • 6

      Remove the door handle by unscrewing the small screw located in the center. Gently pull the door handle out until you see the back of the handle and unclip the rod from the door handle. This should remove the handle unless the handle and door lock are attached, then you just unclip the rod from the lock and remove them both together.

    • 7

      Unscrew the cap off rear upper corner door panel locks. These don't have a rod attaching them to the handle and unscrew separately from the door handle.

    • 8

      Pop the door panel off after you've removed everything. Gently pry on the bottom edge of the door panel until it releases. Pull out and up to completely remove the door panel.

How do I take the door panel off of a 95 Ford F150 to replace the handle?


All there is is just screws around the outer sides of the door panel(3 on bottom). There is one located on the arm rest where the handle is. Then you need to take the screw out where you can lock your door and open your window ect... And just move the panel around until it comes off. You might have to pull the door opener out a little to get it through that hole.

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 panel.you'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 out.to 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

Replace door handle and lock 08 dodge charger


check that all screws have been removed from door. Hidden screws often found behind reflectors in door. Use prying tool and gently pull bottom of door panel away from doorm on/in door handle and near mirrow within door jam. Lay on the ground and look between the door and panle. You can usually see the plastic clips holding the door in place. Once bottom is loose you should be able to lift the door up and off of the door. Watch for power window and lock wires when removing. If manual windows, slide a rag behind window crank and move back and forth to remoce clip which holds crank on.
