How to remove handles on closet door without locking mechanism


Hi Marion- just signed up, you're my first response. First, look at the handles to see what tools are needed, usually a philips head screwdriver and allen wrench. Next, unloosen the set screw enough with the allen wrench to remove the handle, keep set screw in handle, don't remove, next pull handle apart, next remove any hardware attached to door and you should be done. Hope this helps. Thanks, Joe

Hi, I need to remove/ replace the driver's


Hi, there realy is no tricks to these just a little patience is all it takes. You will need to remove the inner door panel. You have to remove any inside handles that are still attatched with either an allen wrench or phillips screwdriver whichever you have on yours and then simply take a flat bladed screwdriver and work it around the edge of the door panel prying it untill the little plastic tabs pop out of the holes. this may seem scary but that is how it is done and once you start getting the tabs to pop out it gets easier the farther you go. And these simply pop back in when your finished. If your model has the screw in type then On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge.
Take a flash light and look up towards the handle from the inside and you should see 2 bolts holding it on. One you should be able to get with a socket that you feed through the hole in the metal that is ournd the handle, the other you may need to get a box wrench to get on it. If you have a digital camera take a picture of the lock rods and connectors so you can put all pack in the right place. You may want to get new plastic tabs for the lock rods as these tend to be the cause of most failures. the handle should pull straight out once you have disconnected all the lock rods and bolts, the replacement goes in the revers order this one came out.

How do I remove the left rear door panel from a 1996 Nissan Maxima? The window just fell down. It can be manually lifted up, but it slides back down again. It no longer mechanically works. If you can...



  • Disconnect the negative battery cable(for safety if you have power locks and windows)
  • At the bottom of the door panel remove the two screws
  • Pry up at the front edge of the power window switch pod and lift it out then unplug the electrical connector
  • Remove the inside door handle
  • Remove the screw in the door pull pocket
  • Pull the door panel away from the door far enough to disconnect the electrical connectors

I would like to save money and replace my 2001 vw cabrio window regulator (passenger/right-side) myself. Is there a chance anyone could walk me through this? Or even from video instruction?


If you have not figured this out yet I should be able to help you. The door panel has 2.5mm allen screws around the outside, remove them, under the pull handle(pry it off) there are 2 philips screws, under the speaker grill(pry it off) there are 4 philips screws. Remove the speaker. Pull the door panel loose, the door handle (the hinged latch release handle) stays on the door frame. Disconnect any wiring to the door panel and set aside.
I believe on this car you will see a plastic sheet covering the metal portion of the door. The easiest way to deal with it is to cut around the pieces where the allen screws went in and the door handle, etc. Just tape the plastic back together when you reinstall.
Once the door panel is off, lower the window to a point that you can see the clamps that hold the window, loosen them and remove the glass.
The regulator is held in place with 4 10 mm bolts, loosen them and bend the regulator out. Remove the motor and swap it over( I believe it is held in place with 3 or 4 t30 screws),
Reassembly is reverse. Close the door and run the window all the way up, hold the switch there to learn the top position.
Height adjustment is done from under the clamps where the glass attaches to the regulator.

Hit me up with any questions.

I need to take the handle off so I can take the panel off so I can repair the door lock. I need help taking the door handle off.


Take a look at my older solutions. I just gave someone instructions on this. 2.5mm allen bolts around the perimeter, 2 philips under the pull handle, and 4 philips around the speaker. The handle stays on the door when the panel comes off.

TRYING TO REMOVE A REAR DOOR OUTER HANDLE


Lower hole in the door jamb loosten allen screw until the cap comes off. Upper hole there is a #20 torx slightly down and inboard of the hole, you need a really long torx bit and pull the handle out slightly. It also helps to pull weatherstrip loose so you can see it.
