Broken door handle


Unfortunately as our cars age, interior plastic breaks, especially if the vehicle has never had its windows tinted and its been parked outdoors in the direct sun. Replacement of interior handles is relatively easy and can typically be done without removing the door panel. Although I have had to pull some panels off and had other be a royal pain in the **** to replace. There is typically a metal rod connected to a plastic loop on the handle. I would try to purchase new components rather then used (especially plastic) since you do not know the history of the used parts. I would also buy genuine Toyota parts since these tend to last longer then the aftermarket clone. Good Luck

The interior door handle on the driver's side of my 2000 Tundra does not open the door. The exterior door handle works fine. I would assume the cable has broken on the door latch portion. What is the...


remove the screws that fasten the interior door panel to the door.  Visually inspect the handle assembly. there will be two cables that connect the handle and lock button to the door lock assembly.  I would bet that the L-shaped end of the interior door handle cable broke.  The replacement is self explanatory for the handle. Google the door lock assembly which isn't as visable.  Bob

Interior door handle is broken in saab 93s how do you fix problem


I'VE GOT A SIMPLE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM!
August 16, 2012

My Mother-in-law has a 2004 Saab 9-3 convertible, she wasn't able to find a fix for this problem because the plastic bracket that holds the door cable in place on the inside of the door panel broke off and it's actually part of the door panel itself. Since the bracket broke, pulling on the inside door handle would no longer pull the cable that's need to open the door.
She was out of luck and had to roll the window down to use the outside door handle to exit the car (that gets annoying really fast).
Basically without rigging it, she would've needed a replacement door panel because of this ridiculos design flaw (around $600 + installation if you could even find the panel, she couldn't because Government Motors SUCKS!) .

I simply used an L bracket that I had (can find it at any Home Depot, Lowe's etc.) and used two sets of channel lock pliers to bend it into a "squared" J shape. I then drilled 2 holes into the inside metal door frame and used 2 sheet metal screws to secure the bracket to the door frame. To make sure that I mounted the new and improved bracket that I created in the proper location (not too much or too little slack). I simply made a template with a sheet of paper by tracing where the old molded plastic bracket was in relation to the two screw holes of the door panel ( actually had to mount the bracket about an inch forward to make up the difference since the bracket is no longer attached to the door panel).
I also had to drill the **** in the bracket a bit to make sure the cable wouldn't get hung up on it when pulled, but in all it only took 15 mintues to redesign GM's crappy design.
Here are 2 pictures, hope this will solve your issue with your broken handle.

Driver's side interior door handle snapped off


there is plastic snaps that attatch the panel to the door all the way around the panel which you can buy a tool to remove the panel without breaking the snaps,the door handle may have a cable hooked to it that releases the latch and it might be stretched causing the handle to pull hard

2003 Toyota Sequoia Tailgate Latch - how to replace


Remove your tag bolts and remove the cover by pulling easy as not to break the tabs. The tag lights can but do not have to come out. At this point you can access the handle. You will find that the handle has a plastic arm that trips the latch by pulling a cable it will be broken. To open the door just pull on the cable. Once I open the door I removed the inside door panel and a metal cover which has about 8 10mm bolts it gives you more room to work.

DOOR WON'T OPEN FROM INSIDE OF NISSAN ALTIMA 2002 ON DRIVER'S SIDE


There is a cable that attaches to the inside door latch release handle. The plastic that retains this cable is most likely broken. I have seen this before. If the retainer is not holding the cable sheath correctly, the entire cable moves when the handle is pulled and does not release the door latch.

Remove the door panel and inspect this cable. You will see 2 cables (one is for the door lock). If the plastic is broken, you will need a new interior handle assembly.

Hope this is helpful!!

1999 Toyota Corolla interior door handle


There's two screws by the handle, pull those out and you'll see how it all connects on the inside. I was able to remove my broken one, and drill a hole into the plastic where it broke and reuse it - it's lasted over 4 years now.
