Question about 2002 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

Driver side door handle doesn't work anymore!!

It feels like something has broke or given away in the door handle; it still does the motion as if it were going to open the door, but it's loose, and doesn't open the door at all.

Someone I know suggested a wire breaking was involved, and that it would be easy enough to replace if I knew what I was doing/who to go to.

Could you help me figure out exactly what's happened?
Thanks.

Either the cable/cable end has broken or the handle has broken where the cable slides in and pivots. I believe you do have a cable system in that door but if it is a rod system it would be something similar.

You must either remove the handle from the door card or remove the door card itself to see exactly whats gone wrong. Unless something has just fallen apart, you will more than likely need to buy a handle or cable. Good luck

I need written instructions on how to replace a outside driver side door handle for an 06 ford focus


Close/wind up the window. Remove the inside door panel. Be careful with power window switch and door speaker wiring connectors. Disconnect them before pulling the door panel away. Remove any plastic covers that may be glued to the door. Have a look at the door handle from inside the door. You will have some idea as to how to remove it. Usually door handles are secured by screws from the inside. Locate and remove them. Remove linkages to the door handle then pull handle form outside.

see if you can't take off a little trim piece around the handle, and try to get the handle out. With luck, the plastic piece at the handle broke, and maybe you can reach in and grab the rod with long nose pliers and tug on it to open the door

1995 Beretta: The passenger side door handle broke while opening...


it is an easy fix! there are 4 screws needing to come off the door to gain access to the interior. once in you will need to release a clip and also remove a bar from either an orange or black clip....once these are removed, you put in the new door handle, attach the clips back on, attach the screws and you are ready to go!

Driver's side door won't open from the inside. Feels like there's a cable loose. Could use a blowup picture of the door.


Very common problem with these trucks. The inside door handle needs to be replaced. They do sell after market handles for these trucks but i would pay the difference and get an OE handle from the GM dealership. There isnt much of a difference in price and a huge difference in quality:)
