Oh arent they a fantastic design,? before reinstalling new ones, manually push and lift the door rod before connecting to ensure correct alignment, Theres a saying "never too much lube" be very generous with some white lithium grase on all the mechanisms and controls and rods. before you replace the door trims, check them again. Good luck

How do i replace offside rear door handle

You would need to take the pannel off to get to the internal part of the mechanism. Something has broken or come apart in the opening mechanism. I'd let it go if considering replacing.

Door will not auto open when door handle is pulled.

Hi my name is Peter, Is there any resistance on the door handle or does it move more freely than before? A lot of the time when something like this happens the door handle or a piece of he linkage inside the door has broken or come loose for the mechanical portion but the electrical is still functional. If the handle moves freely you may want to take the door panel off and get a better look but be careful where you put your fingers because if the electrical can still get voltage back there you may accidently activate it with you disconnect the positive side of the battery to be safe might be good idea. Depending on how popular the vehicle is and the age of it you may be able to get a replacement handle if you need one at a local parts store. If not then of course u could check online or hit the dealers parts counter.. I just replace a handle on my sons extended cab truck because the handle broke inside but I was lucky and only had two bolts to take loose lifted it out of the frame and installed the new one from Advanced auto in about 10-15 minutes. Good luck let me know what you find.

Driver side door handle doesn't work anymore!!

Either the cable/cable end has broken or the handle has broken where the cable slides in and pivots. I believe you do have a cable system in that door but if it is a rod system it would be something similar.

You must either remove the handle from the door card or remove the door card itself to see exactly whats gone wrong. Unless something has just fallen apart, you will more than likely need to buy a handle or cable. Good luck

Broke inside handle

Normally if you can get hold of what's left (with pliers or something) and pull it to open position, and look in behind it, you should see a screw or bolt attaching it to mechanism, just take that out & it should come off.

Need new door

No need to get new door if it's only the handles that broke off, unless they fell through the rust or something. Buy a new set of handles from dealer or parts place, or even autorecycler (wrecking yard) and change them.
