Hi. Before you get into replacement expose the linkage and lube it good with a penetrating lubricant like WD-40. J

I need written instructions on how to replace a outside driver side door handle for an 06 ford focus


Close/wind up the window. Remove the inside door panel. Be careful with power window switch and door speaker wiring connectors. Disconnect them before pulling the door panel away. Remove any plastic covers that may be glued to the door. Have a look at the door handle from inside the door. You will have some idea as to how to remove it. Usually door handles are secured by screws from the inside. Locate and remove them. Remove linkages to the door handle then pull handle form outside.

How do i take off the inside drivers door panel on a 2005 dodge caravan


Hi Roberta, here's the instructions on how to remove your door panel. I have to wonder though on why you are removing it, my guess is you window doesn't roll up or down and your replacing the regulator. Any way here goes.

REMOVAL

  1. Remove the plug and remove screw attaching door pull cup to inner door panel.
  2. Remove switch bezel and disconnect power window/memory switch.
  3. Remove screws attaching trim panel to door from below map pocket.
  4. If equipped, remove window crank. (Refer to 23 - BODY/DOOR - FRONT/WINDOW CRANK - REMOVAL)
  5. Remove screw holding door trim to door panel from behind inside latch release handle .
  6. Disengage clips attaching door trim to door frame around perimeter of panel.
  7. Lift trim panel upward to disengage flange from inner belt molding at top of door.
  8. Tilt top of trim panel away from door to gain access to latch linkage.
  9. Disengage clip attaching linkage rod to inside latch release handle (INSIDE DOOR HANDLE LINKAGE).
  10. Separate linkage rod from latch handle.
  11. Disconnect the power door switch, courtesy lamp electrical connectors.
  12. Remove front door trim panel from vehicle.
Hope this helps and have an awesome day Roberta!

Driver side door handle not working. Can open door from inside but not outside...outside door handle must be broken. Remote works to lock and unlock door. Need to be able to get into my car from the driver...


your linkage rod to the outside door handle has disconnected , if you open up the door panel to access the lock linkage rods you will find the rod that is disconnected . There is a plastic bushing the rod is secured with if it is broken you must replace it , if the rod will not stay in place replace the bushing , hope this helps you out

What is a possible list of causes that could come from the driver side door not opening at all in your 1993 Buick Regal?


Door mechanism came apart inside the door. This can be a real pain if you cannot open it at all. You will need to take out all of the screws inside door handle and behind it. Pop out the plastic holding pieces that keep the door trim stuck to the metal part and pull the trim up and over a little bit to try to get to the linkage and get it open. Then you can pull the trim up quite a bit and see what linkage came apart and try to snap it back together and/or replace the linkage. Have you tried to open it from getting inside it? Sometimes when the linkage fails you can still open it from either side. Hope you get it going with this info and thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot open passenger door from the inside, works ok from outside


Must be the internal door linkage has slipped off from the inside door handle. You will have to get the door panel removed to fix that linkage. This is all assuming it's a front passenger door you're having the problem with.
Rear doors have child safety locks built in that prevent the doors from opening from the inside, to keep the little ones from opening the rear doors accidentally and tumbling out. Those you can just slide a safety lever to allow it to be opened from the inside.

Driver side exterior door handle broke. just one arm broke off the handle, so its still half on but i can't open my door from the out side. can i use the back door handle to replace the front one? also...


This iis very coomon, the part of the handle that broke is the part that releases the latch, you will need to replace the handle, the inside door panel needs to be removed to replace the handle, some of these are revited on and you will need to drill out revits from the outside and disconnect the linkage from the inside, hope this is helpful.

Have you been replacing the handles with aftermarket replacements made in China. If so, spend the extra $$ to get the parts from a GM dealer. They obviously break too but perhaps not as easily.
