If you have a Habor Freight in your area, they sell a door panel kit. They are plastic mini crowbars. They are a life saver. I bought my set for about ten bucks. The best way is to slowly work your way around starting in the middle of one of the sides. You will be able to find the points where the plastic rivets are.

if you remove the cover that is behind the inside door handle and look you may see the arm that connects to the handle.if its connected then you will have to remove the inner door panel,if its come off the handle and you get a hold of it you can pull on it and the door should open.you have to be patient to remove the door panel with the door closed.you will need to remove some screws to loosen the panel from the steel door inner panel.(arm rest,cover behind the handle).pop up the power door/window switch control and remove the plug attached.pull out the inner door panel to unhook the clips around the outside edge of the panel,you will have to move the seat to get better access to some,then remove the panel and reach into the inner door and move the unlock arm to open the door.you move have clips that are broken that allowed the arms to come off that need replacing to fix the problem.

How do i replace a drivers side external door handle it is broken at the pivot point were the rood connects


You will need to remove the door panel from the inside to gain access to the door handle bolts on the inside of the door panel. There should be two nuts to remove and then the door handle will come out.

My x5 bmw driver door willnot open from outside


It sounds like the handle may be broken, or the linkage may be broken or disconnected

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the 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. Pull back the weather seal and then you can gain access to the exterior handle

Driver door handle will not open door


Sounds like an internal door machanism not hooked up of working properly. If the door can be opened from the oposite side of door with door opener it is possible that you have something internal broken within the door or you need a new door handle. In order to access this you will have to take your door panel off from the inside. Good luck....

1995 Toyota Corolla Door Handle


My husband (who is a weight lifter) managed to bust our door handles three times during the hot summer months. It was about $35 for the not so fancy handles and installation, I think over $50 for someone to do the fancy painted handle (driver's side door). We had it done since I think at least one of the times, the door would have had to be dismantled.
FYI the Toyota dealer said that in the hot summer months, the door handles were the items ordered the most for Toyotas across the board. We don't live in a hot climate anymore, and havent had any problems with melted/broken handles.
