There are two screws holding the plastic trim panel. Take off the panel and you will see where the handle is attached to a linkage. Remove the retaining clip and replace the handle.

SOURCE: 1997 Buik Century-the handle on the driver side door is loose. I assume I need to remove the inside panel to tighten bolts for handle.

Yes there should be a clip and or 2 small screws. sometimes it rusts, but you dont see that very much.

good luck,
Michael

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.

Drivers side door will not open by using the inside handle


The door inner panel will have to be removed, to see if the handle is broken or the rod connecting handle to latch has come loose. When you get the panel off, you will see if it's the handle or the rod (held in place with plastic clips at both ends). If it is the rod, pull off the plastic water shield to work inside the door. The plastic can be resealed with new adhesive.

2008 ford fusion driver side door will not open from the inside


You will need to remove the door handle, but you may have to pull the door trim plate first. Pull the handle assembly outward and inspect it to make sure the inner door connector rods are attached. These are held in place with plastic pieces, and plastic parts on the door handle. Replace the handle if the rod loop is broken. Replace the door rod ends with new hardware. This can all be done in your driveway, and requires very little mechanical knowledge or skills.

Driver's side door won't open from the inside. Feels like there's a cable loose. Could use a blowup picture of the door.


Very common problem with these trucks. The inside door handle needs to be replaced. They do sell after market handles for these trucks but i would pay the difference and get an OE handle from the GM dealership. There isnt much of a difference in price and a huge difference in quality:)

Driver side door handle (outside) and gas pedal 2000 Camry


Bring the vehicle into the dealer if you have a sticky gas pedal. This is a TOYOTA PROBLEM.
Door handle:
It easy ! You need a philips2_bing.gif and flat screw driver,and a needle nose pliar.
Use flat screw driver and pry out the two or three dust covers for the arm rest screws then use philips and remove the screws. Next use the flat screw driver and pry out the black plastic mirror cover from the inside of the door. Pry out the switch with the flat screw driver and disconnect it. On the side of the door panel just above the striker/loch mechanism is this plastic push pull type of a hold in screw. Use flat screw driver to get it to move a little then pull it out with the needle nose. Depending on which door your doing if you have a map folder in the door there are two more screw to remove on the bottom of the door.
Now the inside door handle is tricky it comes out in TWO pieces. Use philips and get the only hold down screw you see out.( you may have to pry out a little screw cover first) Now the inside door handle cover is removed by placeing the flat screw driver on the rear of the outside of the cover top and on the outside rear bottom to release the tangs that are holding it onto the panel.Pry it out lightly you may have to place the screw driver over the top of the door release button and pry that way. Don't loose your cool its a pain but it will fall out. Once its removed unhook the panel.

Next lift the plastic cover and remove the door handle hooks and levers . Basically use common sense this is easy stuff. There may be two screws from inside of door panel that keep handle in place . Then work handle loose from outside and inside . reverse for installation.

I went to open the driver side door and the exterior portion of the handle came loose.. I worked it back in and it seems to work, I'm opening the passenger side door to get to the driver side inside handle...


the door handle is either broke or a part of it has slipped loose, either way, you'll have to remove the inner door panel to get to it, this is not difficult, a few screws and the panel is retained by push in type plugs that can be pryed loose. the entire door latch assy is held in by screws and is serviced by replacement, the difficulty come with very tight area to work in, and is irritating and time consuming, if you are not good with tools i'd suggest a good mechanic or body shop. always get a quote!!

you have to remove the inside door pannel first remove the arm rest two screws then remove the door latch assembly then remove the crank handle by removing c clip around the wndow knob unless electric, next pop the lower and side screws out of the corners then pop the snaps up from the door remove the lock tab at top pull pannel next gently remove the plastic that covers the door and straighten the rod out on the inside that goes to the outter door handle, if it's not hooked up then you will have to buy a plastic clip from toyota to replace it with.

99 gmc suburban driver side door will not open from inside


My son and I both have 99 suburbans. We both had exactly the same issue. We found the the latch or handle inside the cab on the drivers side had broken off inside the door. Not a big deal. Go to a site called " Parts Train". You can buy virtually any part for your truck there. Get a new inside door handle, pull the panel and replace it. Not an easy job to getting door panel off or back on, but I guarantee this is the problem. You won't have a problem with the passenger side because it is used less. At Parts Train make sure you order the same color as your old one. Take your time and do a good job and you will have your fix.
