The interior door handle to my car is broken and I can't seem to figure out how to fix it. Seems like the cable broke by the handle. Another person asked a question like this before, but nobody seems to...


your probably exactly right... this can be a rather difficult one to explain.. because im not sure how your door handle is set up.. best way to do it is take the door panel off by removing the few screws that are in the armrest, most likely one by the handle, and maybe a couple along the bottom of the door. once those are out the panel is also held with clips, i usuall start at the bottom corner off the door and work my way up tward the window, then across the bottom and up the front of the panel until its completely lose, lift it out, and you will be able to see the cable that goes to the handle, either the handle itsself broke, or the plastic clip that the cable sets in broke, or came un snaped.. if the clip is still there push, the rod back on it and snap it.. if its not.. well you will need one... hope this helps you out more than confusing you.

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.

How do I replace the interior LH door handle 97 Jeep Wrangler?


you will need a t-20 or t-15 torx bit driver to remove 2 screws holding the handle this is all that holds them on, on once you have a replacement handle it is easier to remove 2 lower screws on the door panel and unsnap the door panel to loosen it this will allow space making it easier to reinstall new handle just slide each end into the slot and reinsert 2 screws to not fully tighten until door panel is snapped back in. the panel is held on with clips and can be released using plastic pry tool around door panel edges.

Outside sliding door handle?


Yes. It is a difficult job, but not impossible. The hardest part is actually removing the interior door handle. Here are the steps.
  1. remove the interior door handle by pressing the door panel in and prying out the C-ring retainer clip
  2. remove the lock slide switch bezel with 1 screw, then insert a blade on the bottom left of the slider between the slider and bezel, and release the clip, the slide the bezel toward the rear of the vehicle and pull out
  3. carefully unclip the door panel around the lower edge and sides and lift the door panel UP and off
  4. remove the interior lock slide switch with 2 screws
  5. pull back the plastic vapor shield part way to expose the mechanism
  6. there is a cable that runs from the mechanism to the exterior handle, unclip it from the door frame
  7. there is a rod that drops down from the door handle to the mechanism, release the rod from the plastic clip
  8. locate a large (likely black phillips) screw next to the door handle on the EDGE of the door, remove it
  9. locate a 10mm screw on the inside behind the door handle, remove it
  10. locate the final 10mm screw behind the handle through an access hole, remove it (careful not to let it fall inside the door)
  11. the door handle will push out through the door part way- there is another C-clip securing the lock cylinder that will need to be removed, and the lock cylinder can be pushed into the door cavity
  12. pull the door handle through the outside of the door skin- the door handle assembly is still attached inside the door by the latch cable- the cable can be easily removed from the handle assembly to remove it completely
  13. you will likely find that the end of the door handle itself is broken off- don’t buy a new handle! Email me and I will show you my free and possibly better solution that will likely last the life of the vehicle dbonnell1972 at yahoo dot com
re-assembly is the reverse of the removal

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.
