    the handle on the back door broke how do you get to the handle to fix it

    hey dude, i have also had the pleasure of my door handle breaking and the only advice i can give u is what i learned from from my experience. what most likely has happened is the washer on the handle has worn out and broken off, conviently this means the assembly has come apart and is no longer governed by the handle. because there is no point of entry from inside the van i unscrewed the licence plate light and attached a tiny web cam and light to a coat hanger so i could see inside. there is a metal shield that is used to protect against theft but with the web cam i could navagate over it and look at the assembly, i then took another coat hanger and pulled the unbound lever to unlatch the door (after a bit of fiddling). i was rather lucky because i had all the necessary tools at hand (tiny web cam with light). it all depends on how motivated u are to work with it.



    from there just put the assembly back together and drill a screw into the end of the assembly pin

remove the door trim and go to the door lock mechanism . It may be a rod that has fallen out of the lock from a failed clip.

How do I fix the door/lock of my 1991 Acura Integra? I can only open the driver side door from the outside


There are only 2 places that you have the problem on the inside door handle. one is at the handle,and the little plastic holder that holds the rod to the handle broke, or the plastic clip the the door lock mechanism broke. the first can be removed without taking the door apart. the inside door handle has a screw holding it in place. you can remove the handle and see if its broken. the second requires you to remove the door panel, to replace the clip that hold the rod to the lock. I door handle in the car is a dealer item only(sorry to tell you that), the clip for the lock, you can get at the auto parts store. hope this helps

1995 Beretta: The passenger side door handle broke while opening...


it is an easy fix! there are 4 screws needing to come off the door to gain access to the interior. once in you will need to release a clip and also remove a bar from either an orange or black clip....once these are removed, you put in the new door handle, attach the clips back on, attach the screws and you are ready to go!

Outside door handle not working


i have a 94 2dr cutlass and the same thing happend to me, now i can tell u how to fix the problam but the door has to be open to fix, so if your in the same boat i was with both door handles broke then there was only two ways i could think of to get the doors open with both handles broke, ether go threw the trunk and break the seat of break a widow witch is what i did, and once ur window is broke dont replace glass untill handles are fixed. what u do is once the door is open look on the inside behind handle and there is a black cover that has a few screws on it, remove this and u will have a perfect view of the lever assembly, i went to my local junk yard and got me two handles that were that were in good shape, and one u see how it works its a pretty easy fix
