Remove the door panel and on the inside of the door is a clip or a couple of nuts you'll need to remove. The door handle will fall out.

The driver side window in my 1988 ford ranger will not roll down. Its manual. What's the problem and how should I fix it???


Remove the clips in the inside of the window handle,also clips on door handle.Look for any screws holding the door panel on, then take a screwdriver and pry the door panel away from the door. re install the window handle,and try rolling the window down. You will probably see what is stopping it. If it looks like the window regulator is worn out, check the local junk yards for a replacement.

  1. If equipped with manual window crank handles, pull off the handle cover, then remove the attaching screw.
  2. Remove the trim cup behind (Explorer/Mountaineer) or around (Ranger) the door handle using a small prying tool. Retention nibs will flex for ease of removal.
  1. If equipped with power accessories, use the notch at the lower end of the plate and pry the plate off. Remove the plate from the trim panel and pull the wiring harness from behind the panel. Disconnect the harness from the switches.
  2. Remove any retaining screws uncovered by the removed trim pieces.
  3. Using a flat wood spatula, insert it carefully behind the panel and slide it along to find the push-pins. When you encounter a pin, pry the pin outward. Do this until all the pins are out. NEVER PULL ON THE PANEL TO REMOVE THE PINS!
  4. Lift slightly to disengage the panel from the flange at the top of the door
  1. Disconnect the door courtesy lamp and remove the panel completely. Replace any damaged or bent attaching clips.
  2. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

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.

How to replace passenger side power mirror on 1998 ford ranger XLT? Hit another vehicle and knocked mirror off.


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. 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 and mirror. Then you can remove the bolts securing the mirror housing onto the door. (I assume that part is still intact).

If it's just the mirror piece and backing that fell out of the housing, then on the inside of the housing, you should see two to four clips that secure the pivot point and two rods that control the pitch of the mirror. You may be able to just 'jam' the mirror backing back in. But the rods need to be secured to the back of the mirror backing in order to prevent the mirror from just falling or moving on its own

How to replace inside door handle on passenger on 1998 chevy silv


Remove screw from inside door grab handle. Remove door panel by carefully prying out plastic clips. Drill or chisel off pop rivets holding the handle on. Pull handle out far enough to disconnect linkage and remove handle. Install new handle and secure to metal panel with new pop rivets or sheet metal screws. It may be easier to reconnect linkages by removing the metal panel also.
