You will need to remove the interior door panel, be careful if you have air bags on the door, but once you take the panel off it's a couple of screws holding the handle in, it's fairly simple but a little hard to get to. good luck

The passenger exterior door handle is broken off. How do I replace it?


inside door panel has to come off, then there are usually 1 rod on the handle pull, and one rod on the lock.. these pop off the rod and stay on the hanldle body. there should be @ 3 or 4 nuts on the back side of the handle. thease removed and the old handle shouold pop out.. dont force it... new handle in... .hand snug the nuts, put op rods back in proper holes, snap in clips... TEST BEFORE YOU PUT THE DOOR PANEL BACK ON...... saves lots of time if you happen to put the rods in wrong.

HOW DO YOU REPAIR EXTERIOR DRIVERS SIDE DOOR HANDLE 1995 EAGLE TALON. THE INSIDE HANDLE WORKS FINE


You have to replace the entire door handle piece. There's no real way to jimmy a fix on that. Mine did the same thing and just snapped.

How to replace exterior door handle on the back passenger side. What tool is needed?


there are two rivets that you will have to drill out. on the inside of the door, there is a threaded clip that holds the linkage in, you will have to open it (it opens like a door, it may be a little stubborn, but it will open). then put your new handle on, and then the linkage back in, and snap the clip back in place. you will need one of the bigger pop rivet guns because the rivets are 1/4 ones. also, when you go to rivet the handle back on, tape some cardboard under the handle. that way if the rivet gun drops after it snaps off the rivet, it will not scratch the door. hope this helps you.

Inside handle will not open door. Can not figure out how to get latch out of door to look at problem. Pulled door panel, moved window rail, 3 screws from latch, and cable mount attached to latch. How do...


There are plastic clips that hold the rods in place - one for the rod that goes to the exterior handle and another that goes to the exterior lock. You need to snap the plastic clips around so they release and then the rods will pull right out.

1997 buick park ave 4 door right front door handle won,t work from the outside


Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.
