SOURCE: Need to know how to install exterior door handles

I'm assuming that you have the coupe not convertible since I've had same problem with my 97 Dodge Avenger and this is quite common from what I have heard. The handle is held in place by two 10mm bolts. One is easily accessable, located right beside the handle with the door open. The other is a little harder to get at. The first thing you need to do is remove the inside door cover, held in place by four screws and push in clips along the bottom that pull out easily. Two of the screws are visible and in the top corners of the door panel. One screw is located behind the inside handle and once removed the moulding comes off quite easily. The other screw is in the hand hold where you pull the door closed and has a small plastic cover over it. If you have power windows you are able to disconnect the switches once the panel is off. If manual windows, the handles are usually held on by a clip that can be pushed off with a screw driver allowing you to pull of the crank handle. The window needs to be in the closed position so you can access the ONE 10mm bolt holding the outer door handle. Once the interior door panel is off, if any clips remain in the door, take them out and put them where they should be in the door cover it won't go back together properly if you don't. Now you'll need to pull down the corner of the plastic covering the door, don't remove all the plastic just enough to allow access to the bolt. I used a small rachet to get it out. It is in a stupid spot with not much room but is doable. Once out, the handle is only being held by the lock rods to the handle and lock cylinder. The lock cylinder is held by a retaining clip which can be slid off allowing the cylinder to be pushed out. The other rod connected to the handle has a plastic clip on it holding it in place. This can be opened with a small screwdriver. Once opened the rod will come out easily and the handle should come off the door. The only problem reinstalling, that I had, was reconnecting the rod to the handle and found that if you unscrew the door latch, the whole mechanism can be moved down, giving you more freedom to work with the rod. You might want to do this before fighting with the clip holding the rod in place, just a thought as I got mine apart in 20 min. Installing the new handle is quite easy, just attach rod to the handle FIRST before anything else. Once the handle is back on the door the lock cylinder can be pushed back in, it just gets in the way if you put it in the handle right away. Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: side sliding door

The trick is that there is a small clip holding the inside handle in place. Push the panel in and grab it with small needle nose or forceps.

Then remove all the interior panels.

There are seven torx screws holding the intern latch into the door frame, and three interconnecting bars between the outer and inner inner handles.

Once you have the ability to move the inner assemble around you can get to the two metric nuts holding the exterior handle.

The lock assembly is removed by depressing the metal latch on the bottom of the handle assemble after the handle is fully removed.

Reverse and replace and that's it. (don't for get to have extra plastic door panel clips as they will break as you remove the interior panels)

Overall - I would suggest to just take it to the dealer or to a body shop. I'm told they would do it for about $75. I took about 2 hrs to do this and if you are even a bit shaky and drop anything into the door, it is game over. Next time I will do the dealer thing.

yes. you should remove the inside door panel.

to do this, remove all the screws you can see. One in the door handle, one by the mirror, then remove window crank/buttons

the take a flathead screwdriver and CAREFULLY pry the panel off. it is best to pry where the plastic pins are holding the panel on.

reverse procedure to reinstall.

2006 kia rio door handle rod broken


2006 Kia Rio is a cable not a rod and most often the cable will break at the connection point near the handle, there is a metal end that is manufatured on the cable and where these two meet is a weak or high stress point. The problem is there is no fix for this other than replacing the door latch which has the cables attached to it at the factory. Cost can run from $55 to $125 dollars depending on where you purchase. Replacing is basic DIY removing window crank, door handle trim piece, door panel, then unbolting latch assembly and replacing with new one. Reverse assemble door and problem solved.

I have a 2001 Ford Escape with a passenger side front door that will not open from outside (handle is just pulls out and does not go in) and inside handle does not release the door either. To get the door...


You might try having someone inside, pulling steadily on the door handle and then 'bumping' near the latch assembly on the outside with the heel of the hand. This will cause some confused latches to let go again.

Installing exterior driver side and passaner side door handles


I found this on another page, hope it helps:)

Remove the plastic cover behind the door handle assembly by removing one black 14mm nut from just above the door handle, and 1 screw (usually phillips) from the bottom of the plastic cover.
Remove linkages from lock cylinder and door handle assembly. Use a small flathead screwdriver to slide retaining clips forward, and linkages will come free.
Remove one black 14mm nut from the very top of the door handle assembly.
Remove one phillips screw drom the bottom of the door handle assembly.
Door handle assembly should now come free by pulling out slightly at the top, and pulling upwards.
Transfer lock cylinder and key minder light (if applicable) to new door handle assembly. Lock cylinder is retained by a single TORX bolt.
Reinstall in reverse.
TIP: If you lose or damage any of those black plastic coated nuts, order new ones. They are GM p/n 10067214 and should be around $0.58/each. There are two on each door.
