Question about 2006 Ford Fusion
Not too bad a job to do, taking your time it should take 30-45 minutes. You will need a straight screwdriver, phillips screwdriver, a small set of sockets, a clip removal tool also comes in handy.
If you have manual windows, you will need to remove the clip holding the window crank in place. Usually the clip removal tool makes easy work of it by just pushing the clip out from under the window crank handle. If you have electric windows so much the better.
Roll down the window before beginning. Now depending on how Detroit was hiding things, you should look in the area of the door pull for screws that fasten the interior door covering to the door. These might be exposed but sometimes are hidden under plastic caps or trim parts. Very carefully remove this pieces as with age they do become brittle.
Once you are rather sure you have the fastening screws out of the way, using the straight screwdriver to ease the door panel away from the door along the bottom edge. By looking inside you should see one of two methods of fasteners. The older style are simply straight push in plastic clips, you release these by simply putting enough pressure of the panel to pull the clips out. The newer method has a clip that slides down about a 1/2 inch into a matching hole. These panels are removed by lifting up on the door panel and then out.
With the panel off, you can now remove and replace the inner door handle, not much to them usually a couple of clips holding the connecting rod(s) and 3-4 bolts.
Installation is just a reversal of the removal procedure.
