1st you need to open door, remove plastic trim on inside of door by the handle, there is a hole where a 25 torx screw is holding handle end cap, pull door handle in open position, slacken screw until end cap is loose, remove end cap & slide door handle to rear of door out comes the handle, check with torch for any broken parts
probably not. most inside door handles are push on and held with a spring clip that requires a flat tool that slides between the handle and the plastic washer or the plastic plug in the center of the handle prises out and ther will be a small screw to remove then the handle slips off. Normally the screw has a 8 mm head or a philips screw recess
On a S60, 2012, (drivers door) you first remove the plastic cover in under which you find the lock (with keyhole).
secondly, open the door and remove the 15 mm diameter plastic cover near the handle. Insert a long torx scrwdriver(T25 ?) in the
opening and while keeping the door handle "open" (this gives you the possibility to easily replace the handle later) Turn the torx until it stops
(do not use much force). Now you can pull out the metallic lock, peer
out the small white plastic under the door handle and pull out the handle. Do not turn the torx before you have replaced the handle.
In the case of back door, you start by finding the hole for the torx under the doors rubber sealing near the door handle.
our question is vague. If you must replace the exterior handle only, Point 7 in Prakash's excellent answer is enough. Tip: to repair a broken exterior handle: fill both sides of the broken handle with metal reinforced epoxy like KwikWeld, then push nails (heads clipped off, 4 or 5 cm long, 1.5 or 2 mm diameter) into the small part (over half the length of the nails will stick out), then put the handle back together and wait. The nails will reinforce the epoxy and you'll have several cm of metal totally filling up the handle where it is broken.
Remove the inside door trim from the door remove the weather protection from the inner door
panel now look up inside the door and you should see a
small rod which is held onto the door handle with a
plastic fastener, pry the plastic fastener from the rod, it
just clips onto the rod so you only have to pry it from
the end of the clip to release it slide the rod from the door handle, also remove any
other rods or cable that go to the handle Use a thin extension arm with a socket to suit the nuts
or bolts that hold the handle in place, there should be a
few small holes directly behind the handle on the inner
panel slide the socket extension arm with socket attached
through the holes and remove the nut or bolt holding
the handle in place
The instructions I am giving you may not be exact but it
should not be too much different if it is different at all.
there are 3 10 mm srews holding the handle on
you will need to remove the door panel to access two of the screws, once the door panel is off look up and feel for the 10mm screws remove those two, unhook the door opening mechanisim, the third screw is located in the door jam there will be a black plug covering the access hole, once the screws are removed simple lift the hanlde out, if the handle has a key hole the is a simple clip holding the key mech. in place simpley swap to the new handle
They are held on by a small wire horseshoe shaped clip, there is a special tool used in bodyshops but if you get a thin strip of rag, about 5 to 10 mm wide, tie a knot and wrap the thin rag round the gap behind the handle and slide it round it will flick the clip off, might take some attempts but does work.
Ok Remove plastic plug on the inside of door there is 10 mm hole use a hooked pick set pick put through the hole and pull the plastic cir clip towards the back of the door that will release the smaller part of the outer handle then the handle itself can be taken out.this is so simple but so deceiving the actual cir clip is hard to notice because of all the plastic **** on the inside backing plate the cir clip is just on the inside of hole look hard it is 2mm thick & 20mm high (black plastic) place point of pick in between backing plate & cir clip hook it and pull back the front door is based on the same principle but is a lot easier

hi there undo the phillips screw inside the handle the gently slide the whole handle outer casing to the right about 1 cm, it will help if you push it into the door as you do it to give it a little bit of help the feed the whole mechanism through the hole in the panel hey presto!
