Question about 2000 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

How do I remove the rear door panel from my 2000 toyota camery? Specifically the inside door handle cover. I have the panel 90% off, however, I believe the door handle that releases the latch seems to be keeping me from removing the entire panel. There is a surround piece around the handle that I am afraid I will break if I put any more pressure on it. Please help.

It is fragile but you take a small screw driver and pry the top horizantal part and then the bottom horizantal part slightly away and wella it will come off. The handle actually stays on the door I think. The cover comes off. When you do it once you'll see how easy it is.

How do I remove the interior panel on a door that can't be opened from either side on a 2000 Toyota solara


I think the way I would attach this is to remove what can be removed. The lights and covers on the door and I am sure the handle and its vanity plate can be removed. From that point you should be able to get an inspection mirror in there far enough to see what is hanging the door up.

How do I open rear door when outside is broken


This is common. I had to disassemble the door from the inside. You can order a replacement handle from ebay. Look for the metal one so you won't have to do this project again. Then, remove screws at the main handle on the inside and on the pull strap. After this you should be ale to pull the panel out as it is held in with plugs. Now look for a way to release the door, swap the handle and replace. I'm sorry I can't be more help, but it's been a while since I did this project. Good luck!

Driver side door handle (outside) and gas pedal 2000 Camry


Bring the vehicle into the dealer if you have a sticky gas pedal. This is a TOYOTA PROBLEM.
Door handle:
It easy ! You need a philips2_bing.gif and flat screw driver,and a needle nose pliar.
Use flat screw driver and pry out the two or three dust covers for the arm rest screws then use philips and remove the screws. Next use the flat screw driver and pry out the black plastic mirror cover from the inside of the door. Pry out the switch with the flat screw driver and disconnect it. On the side of the door panel just above the striker/loch mechanism is this plastic push pull type of a hold in screw. Use flat screw driver to get it to move a little then pull it out with the needle nose. Depending on which door your doing if you have a map folder in the door there are two more screw to remove on the bottom of the door.
Now the inside door handle is tricky it comes out in TWO pieces. Use philips and get the only hold down screw you see out.( you may have to pry out a little screw cover first) Now the inside door handle cover is removed by placeing the flat screw driver on the rear of the outside of the cover top and on the outside rear bottom to release the tangs that are holding it onto the panel.Pry it out lightly you may have to place the screw driver over the top of the door release button and pry that way. Don't loose your cool its a pain but it will fall out. Once its removed unhook the panel.

Next lift the plastic cover and remove the door handle hooks and levers . Basically use common sense this is easy stuff. There may be two screws from inside of door panel that keep handle in place . Then work handle loose from outside and inside . reverse for installation.
