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. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can put the new handle in and reconnect everything

Driver's side door won't open from the inside. Feels like there's a cable loose. Could use a blowup picture of the door.


Very common problem with these trucks. The inside door handle needs to be replaced. They do sell after market handles for these trucks but i would pay the difference and get an OE handle from the GM dealership. There isnt much of a difference in price and a huge difference in quality:)

You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Remove the clips and screws securing the old window to the arm and slide it out through the top of the door (may need to be maneuvered out)

Replace glass, drivers door on 1997 GMC 1/2 ton Truck ,2wd, Power windows


The door panel is held onto the door with clips but first you need to remove the screws from the grab handle on the door panel. then pop the bezel off around the inside door handle. very carefully!!! then using a clip tool pry off the peice that covers the rear view mirror nuts and pry gently all the way around the door panel until its loose then lift it up slightly to unseat the window channel strip off the door, then unhook your wires. As for the window roll it up, tape it to the door then line up the 2 10mm bolts that clamp it to the regulator with the provided holes in the door, loosen 'em up roll the regulator down and remove the window. Have fun guys!!!

How do you repair a gmc sierra 1998 inside door handle


You have to remove the door panel, if you have roll down windows the handle will have to be removed. After panel is removed you have to drill the one rivet that hols the interior handle. slide the handle down and unfasten the rod retaining clip. Please make sure you do not break the clip. Install the new interior door handle, clip and provided fasteners. Try the door before you install the interior door panel, Note the is a good time to lube the window roller and the door mechanism. Make sure to install the water shield to provide the protecting from the elements. Line all the plastic retaining clips and or replace if they are broken. Good Luck.
