You have to take the interior door panel off first.

The remove the rod from the handle (small clip holding it on)

Then you remove the 2 screws holding the handle to the door.

Reverse to install the new one.

How do I repair the exterior door handle on a 1999 Toyota Camry ? Will it be necessary to replace the entire door ?


No the door handle is easily replaceable. you do have to remove the door panel and roll the window all the way up. 2 10mm nuts inside the door cavity and one bolt on the door jam near the lock mechanism. These handles are made of plastic and degrade and break easily after 3 or 4 years. Every toyota owner has to deal with this at some point. I also recommend buying the new handles on ebay as opposed to the dealer. The aftermarket handles are better quality than the original and MUCH cheaper. They are ALWAYS available on ebay.

Driver side door handle (outside) and gas pedal 2000 Camry


Bring the vehicle into the dealer if you have a sticky gas pedal. This is a TOYOTA PROBLEM.
Door handle:
It easy ! You need a philips2_bing.gif and flat screw driver,and a needle nose pliar.
Use flat screw driver and pry out the two or three dust covers for the arm rest screws then use philips and remove the screws. Next use the flat screw driver and pry out the black plastic mirror cover from the inside of the door. Pry out the switch with the flat screw driver and disconnect it. On the side of the door panel just above the striker/loch mechanism is this plastic push pull type of a hold in screw. Use flat screw driver to get it to move a little then pull it out with the needle nose. Depending on which door your doing if you have a map folder in the door there are two more screw to remove on the bottom of the door.
Now the inside door handle is tricky it comes out in TWO pieces. Use philips and get the only hold down screw you see out.( you may have to pry out a little screw cover first) Now the inside door handle cover is removed by placeing the flat screw driver on the rear of the outside of the cover top and on the outside rear bottom to release the tangs that are holding it onto the panel.Pry it out lightly you may have to place the screw driver over the top of the door release button and pry that way. Don't loose your cool its a pain but it will fall out. Once its removed unhook the panel.

Next lift the plastic cover and remove the door handle hooks and levers . Basically use common sense this is easy stuff. There may be two screws from inside of door panel that keep handle in place . Then work handle loose from outside and inside . reverse for installation.

Driver side doors do not open from outside, inside handles operate appropriately. outside handles were pulled with force after recent ice storm. I am guessing a linkage in the door has been broken or...


The repair will require removal of the door panel and adjustment/replacement of the rod that connects the outside handle to the lock mechanism, or replacement of the handle itself.

Need help on replacing door handle on toyota camry for the front driver side..


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. If it's the inside handle, just disconnect the rod to the back of the handle to replace it. If it's the outside handle, pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to remove the bolts holding down the outer door handle

FIRST YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE INSIDE PANEL. AFTER DOING THAT, WITH THE WINDOW ROLLED UP REMOVE 2 PLUGS ON THE METAL TO ACCESS THE TWO NUTS THAT HOLD ON THE OUTSIDE HANDLE.

95 Toyota Camry All outside handles broken off


I had the same issue with both the inside and outside door handles of my '95 Camry LE.

They are not too expensive. $15-20 each, sometimes you can find a set of four for $50. Try Amazon.com, that's where I just bought my new handles.

Replacement is time-consuming, but relatively easy to figure out. If you have the Haynes manual for your car, it will describe the steps required to disassemble the door paneling and replace the handles.
Have a Phillips AND Flathead screwdriver handy. You will need both to disassemble your door.

Good luck!

How to unscrew the outside door handle ?


There should be a set of fasteners holding the handle in place, probably 2 nuts or more. Use a light to see inside the door handle area to examine the fasteners. Having a replacement part will also help, sometimes it has instructions. At the least you can see the entire handle part and understand how it's mounted in the door.
