Question about 1997 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

I have a 96 toyota camry dx, and I have managed to remove the old exterior door handle, and replaced it with a new one. I am having difficulty getting one last bolt in and reattaching the rod that hooks to the back of the lock. Any suggestions? I am having a hard time seeing. A clear diagram and any suggestion on which tool would be best to use would be great.

Do you have the winow out? A must for this. I used a 10mm ratchet stubby. You need 10 year old hands too. If you got it off you can get it back on. Good flashlight helps too.

How To Replace The Exterior, Front Door Handle On A 2012 Toyota Camry


It removes just like the older style handles with one exception. You must remove the electrical clip/wire that attaches to it while still in the door. It has 2 black clips top/bottom for the harness, one white clip for the actual connector to come off handle (removes toward center of vehicle. After this is off and of course the part behind the moveable handle then the moveable handle will shift backwards and out while swinging rear away from door.

How do I repair the exterior door handle on a 1999 Toyota Camry ? Will it be necessary to replace the entire door ?


No the door handle is easily replaceable. you do have to remove the door panel and roll the window all the way up. 2 10mm nuts inside the door cavity and one bolt on the door jam near the lock mechanism. These handles are made of plastic and degrade and break easily after 3 or 4 years. Every toyota owner has to deal with this at some point. I also recommend buying the new handles on ebay as opposed to the dealer. The aftermarket handles are better quality than the original and MUCH cheaper. They are ALWAYS available on ebay.

How do you replace a 1998 toyota avalon xl exterior door handle?


You have to remove the inner door panel to access the exterior handle's mounting nuts. Once you have the panel off, there will be a plastic film, or water shield, that you can peel off far enough to reach the handle ( when done, reseal the plastic with a little adhesive).. The handle is usually held in place by just two nuts which you remove, then disconnect the latch rod from the handle, and pull the old handle off. Attach the rod to the new handle, tighten the attaching nuts, and put everything back together. Getting the door panel off is the hardest part of this job.
Good luck.

2001 Toyota Camry - Removing driver interior door panel


you can take a screw driver and pry it off. Be careful if you have power windows, if it falls right off then it could pull the wires loose. The panels have clips that clip to the door. Therefore, the only way to get the panel off is to pry it off.

To remove the interior door panel of a 1996 Toyota camry so that


My 96 Camry LE has 9 attachments that are visible. Some have plastic caps covering the screws; others do not. There are screws at the door handle, at the forward portion(with covers) when the door is open and the back edge (small covers). As I recall, there are several friction type fasteners around the perimiter of the panel that can be removed by prying carefully away from the metal portion of the door to free up the trim panel. Once these are loose, the trim around the inside door release handle (the one you pull to open the door) can be pryed in a backward motion. Then the entire panel can be removed by pulling upward and backward at the same time (it easier to do this with the window down). Then it is a matter of disconnecting the wires attached to the various controls for the electric windows and door locks to free up the panel itself. There is probably a plastic skin covering the metal portion of the door. Carefully pull that away to expose the inner workings of the door latch mechanisim. The rest of the procedure should become easy to figure out. I have not removed the exterior door handle itself; but it is a simple mechanism as I recall. Best of luck to you.
