SOURCE: Need to know how to install exterior door handles

I'm assuming that you have the coupe not convertible since I've had same problem with my 97 Dodge Avenger and this is quite common from what I have heard. The handle is held in place by two 10mm bolts. One is easily accessable, located right beside the handle with the door open. The other is a little harder to get at. The first thing you need to do is remove the inside door cover, held in place by four screws and push in clips along the bottom that pull out easily. Two of the screws are visible and in the top corners of the door panel. One screw is located behind the inside handle and once removed the moulding comes off quite easily. The other screw is in the hand hold where you pull the door closed and has a small plastic cover over it. If you have power windows you are able to disconnect the switches once the panel is off. If manual windows, the handles are usually held on by a clip that can be pushed off with a screw driver allowing you to pull of the crank handle. The window needs to be in the closed position so you can access the ONE 10mm bolt holding the outer door handle. Once the interior door panel is off, if any clips remain in the door, take them out and put them where they should be in the door cover it won't go back together properly if you don't. Now you'll need to pull down the corner of the plastic covering the door, don't remove all the plastic just enough to allow access to the bolt. I used a small rachet to get it out. It is in a stupid spot with not much room but is doable. Once out, the handle is only being held by the lock rods to the handle and lock cylinder. The lock cylinder is held by a retaining clip which can be slid off allowing the cylinder to be pushed out. The other rod connected to the handle has a plastic clip on it holding it in place. This can be opened with a small screwdriver. Once opened the rod will come out easily and the handle should come off the door. The only problem reinstalling, that I had, was reconnecting the rod to the handle and found that if you unscrew the door latch, the whole mechanism can be moved down, giving you more freedom to work with the rod. You might want to do this before fighting with the clip holding the rod in place, just a thought as I got mine apart in 20 min. Installing the new handle is quite easy, just attach rod to the handle FIRST before anything else. Once the handle is back on the door the lock cylinder can be pushed back in, it just gets in the way if you put it in the handle right away. Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: replace door handle and lock 08 dodge charger

check that all screws have been removed from door. Hidden screws often found behind reflectors in door. Use prying tool and gently pull bottom of door panel away from doorm on/in door handle and near mirrow within door jam. Lay on the ground and look between the door and panle. You can usually see the plastic clips holding the door in place. Once bottom is loose you should be able to lift the door up and off of the door. Watch for power window and lock wires when removing. If manual windows, slide a rag behind window crank and move back and forth to remoce clip which holds crank on.

SOURCE: i need diagram that shows how the door handle

If the rod between the lock and the latch has fallen off, you will have to get in on the other side (can't do that?) Then open the door from the inside and remove the panel (you can remove the passenger side to see how the linkage goes. Then, you can replace the lock (have it set for your key before putting it in)

Why bother replacing it? They'll just break it again and you'll be back to where you are now in the future.

Best thing is to have the dealership order you the cover for the passenger side and replace it so that the "theives" don't try and break it again; save you a lot of $$$. Also, change the alarm; standard is a joke!

SOURCE: Someone punched out the door lock on the front

it depends on the door handle. if the lock is a part of the handle you will need to get the whole assembly and all that would consist of is two screws and the small bars that are connected too the handle an door latch. if it is a seprate piece all it would consist of is a c clip an one small bar to the door lock. tools needed will be screw driver possible 10mm wrench. hopefully your window regulator isn't in the way. if so let the window down so that the two screws at the bottom on the track are visible. remove the two screws and carefully remove the window. remember that it is glass so use extreme caution.

I have 1983 toyota tercel and with a window rolling up crooked. I cannot see any brass clip in the window handle to remove so that I can get the door panel off. Is there some other way to remove the w


There is probably a c -slip in a groove that locks into the spindle to secure the handle. You will need a handle removal tool . They are very inexpensive..about 5 -7bucks. You slide it between the base of the handle and the side of the panel. Be sure you line it up with with the arm of the handle. The forked piece of the tool will push the c. clip off as you push it . Watch for the clip because it will pop out and you will probably need it to replace and secure the handle. As for the window, it is bolted to a carrier that rides on sprockets that meshes on a plastic tape with punches..somewhat like holes punched in film.. the sprockets is either worn or broken or the tape is cracked and torn..You will have to replace it or the carrier....good luck

Driver door will not unlock with key or remote.


Could be the central locking motor or linkage that need looking at.
Can you hear the motor move in the driver door? If so the linkage is at fault, if not then it's the motor

Need to replace inside door handle that broke completely off. How do I replace this section?


you will need to remove the cover around the handle they are easy to brake from the inside of the outside cover ring go from the inside with a small screw driver and slide between and pry the cover up it has 4 mounting points top left top bottom right and left.
next pop off the switch from the front slide a screwdriver at the front leading edge and push it towards the back of the door panel and lift gently there is a flange on the rear of it that holds the rear of the assembly down dont pry up on the back lift the front and slide it forward unplug all the wires. remove the two screws inside the door arm rest where you pull the door shut. the cup to close the door. next you need to remove the mirror cover at the front top of the door panel slide a screwdriver pry
straight out. using a door panel clip tool. slide under the panel at the bottom rear corner to find the clip and pry the clip out of the hole. work your way around the door to each clip. sometimes you can pull the panel off with your hands but if you are not experirenced you might break some clips or the door panel be nice to it dont break things. all the way around the sides and the bottom are released then pull away from the door and hold the bottom and lift up and hit the top of the door handle with your hand so the clips will release accross the top. remove the light socket from the rear bottom of the door. place the panel somewhere so you dont scratch it up. now remove the rivet from the handle. I punch the center out then use a sharp chisel to punch it off. you may want to drill the rivet. up to you. then the handle slides forward and you have to disconnect the linkage clips from the handle. install the new handle make sure the lock rod is in the hole that slides the lock. hook up the linkages new slide back in position and rivet then reverse the prosess of removing the handle

the lock should come out of the handle. usually there is a clip holding it in. sounds like its broken and you will need another handle, a locksmith should be able to get another lock and make it fit your old key. The dealer is the only place to get a new handle from as far as I know.

94 saturn door panel removel


Well, first you have to remove the outside door panel. To do this remove the door handle on the out side. Lift up the handle and look underneath. You will see 2 little round pins sticking in the handle. Take a small punch and push them up. The handle slides to one side and then off.
Next you need a torx wrench to remove the 10 panel bolts located inside the door frame. I think it is a 40 torx.
Once they are removed you can lift up on the door panel and remove. You can't get access anyother way. Inside door cover can only be remove by removing the outside panel and
taking the clips off. So, once you have the outter door panel off you will the workings. You will need a flash light. Check the throw arm that attaches the locking switch on the lock to the door latch assembly. More then likly that is all that came loose. If that is ok then you need to replace the door catch assembly. Not an easy project. If you can do it the part is about $50 from the dealer. You will need to remove the 3 torx screws attaching the assembly to the inside door frame. Disconnect all the clips that attach the arms. Installation is the reverse. NOT AN EASY JOB TO DO. Plan on a whole day to figure all this out.
