Driver side exterior door handle broke. just one arm broke off the handle, so its still half on but i can't open my door from the out side. can i use the back door handle to replace the front one? also...


This iis very coomon, the part of the handle that broke is the part that releases the latch, you will need to replace the handle, the inside door panel needs to be removed to replace the handle, some of these are revited on and you will need to drill out revits from the outside and disconnect the linkage from the inside, hope this is helpful.

How do I remove the driver's door panel from my 1996 Toyota Tercel. I can't get the window crank off so I can remove the panel.


You will need a window crank removal tool to get the crank off. There is a clip on or behind the handle that the tool helps you expand to remove the crank. It's usually available at most auto parts stores for under $10.

Broken door handle


Yes, if it is actually really broken you can look for and aftermarket door handle or go to the dealer (which will be more money of course!).
There are many aftermarket dealers of door parts all over the web, just take your time!
I bought my own chrome door handles for a old muscle car I drive and it was approx$35 total for both door handles chrome and beautiful and the door locks with fittings and 2 keys!!!

Drivers side door handle is broken


No major labor to fix and you can do this yourself. You have to remove all screws on the door panel, use a tool available at the automotive store. It looks like a flattened out screwdriver with a notch in the flattened end. This is to help pop the fasteners off with the door panel from the door itself. Tools is about $5.00.

After that, unclip the skinny rods to the the affected door handle. You can use a skinny screwdriver for this. Unbolt the 2 screws or bolts from the door handle and wiggle it out.

Install in reverse order.

Replace the passenger window on a 1995 toyota tercel


Begin by popping clips in exterior bottom door, don't worry, these will pop right back in. Then take hankerchiefor thin cloth and slide between window crank and door, in upwards motion, to pop off, be careful, there is a plastic clip that will come off with it, I still cannot figure out how to reattach, and have my handle sperate from th door now. If you figure out how to save, let me know. Than on the handle there is a screw, take that off. You will need a flat head to pop the top of the arm rest from the attached bottom, the arm rest has plastic clips that are easy to unattach and reattach. You have then exposed 2 other screws (within the arm rest) that allow you to take the panel off. To get to the g;***, you will propably need to remove the plastic the door is covered in. Ghetto, I know, but sure helped me to avoid paying labor fees.

Need new door


No need to get new door if it's only the handles that broke off, unless they fell through the rust or something. Buy a new set of handles from dealer or parts place, or even autorecycler (wrecking yard) and change them.

How to replace '96 Ford Explorer driver side exterior door handle


You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.

I have the same problem on a Toyota Tercel 1997. I am trying to remove the door panel with the door closed (I can not open the door because the door knob is stuck in the lock position). I think I will have to cut through the panel. Have you found something ? My e-mail is philippe_oreilly@yahoo.ca
