Go to your Suzuki dealer, there is a recall for certain Forenza's to have all 4 inside door handles replaced at no cost. If there isn't a dealer near by, e-mail me your vin number and I can look it up for you to see if it qualify for it. dpj1122@yahoo.com Don Suzuki man

I have a susuki forenza and I need to replace the driver's side door handle. I already have the new part (door handle).


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 remove the inner door handle and replace with new one. If it's your outer door handle, pull back the weather seal and disconnect the linkage to the outer door handle and then remove the bolts securing the outer handle to the door

How do i remove interior door panel & trim


Answer There is a small black plastic piece that surrounds your door handle. You MUST take that off, I find a small flat tip screw driver works best. The plastic cover that goes on the inside part of the door where your mirror is should be removed, makes it a lot easier to remove door trim: No screws on that part just grab from both sides and pull. 3 screws on bottom and 1 screw inside the armrest. The window crank, easiest way tried and true, shoestring, pull handle towards inside of car until you have enough room to fit the shoestring between crank and plastic washer. Give it a pull back and forth and it'll pop right off; clip should stick to shoestring as an added bonus.

How do I remove a 1995 buick park avenue drivers side door panel?


Normal 0 . First thing, disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.


If you don't have power windows you will have to remove the manual window crank. It is held in place by a clip on the back side of the base. To remove the clip, you will need a small hook (kind of like a knitting needle). Put the hook in behind the base, and grab the clip and pull it off. To replace it, slide the clip back on the window crank, and snap it back on the door.

Need Help Putting A Door Handle On A 1996 Dodge Avenger


Start by disconnecting your negative battery cable. Then you need to locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Once you remove the screws that hold the interior door handles, remove any wire connectors to the handles. The interior door panel itself, is held on by snap in clips, and you will need a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to gat as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are removed from the door, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door. After you gain access to the inside of the door, you will see a area for your new door handle to set in place and operate the door latch. Place your new door handle in place and tighten the nuts that retain it. If has a electronic key code, plug in the electrical connector.

Install everything in reverse.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

My drivers side window quit, where and how do I start to take the door apart to get to the motor? Is it something a handy man can do? I found a motor for $143.00..the fix it place wants 60.00 per hour...


It's not that hard to change the electric motor for the window. Yes, a handy man can do it.
Start by removing the negative battery cable from the battery. Then locate and remove the screws that hold the interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on covers).
I personally use a tool similar to the image below to remove the interior door panel; it is held in by plastic snap clips. Try to get as close to the snap clips as possible with your pry bar to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel. Once you have removed the interior door panel, the removal and installation of the window motor will be self explainitory for a handyman. You may be able to find a used motor at a salvage yard for a lot less than $143.00.
