The window crank handle has a type of c-clip holding it on from behind. You have to pull on the handle just a bit to see behind it and use something small to slide out the c-clip and the handle will come off.

How do I remove the handle in door panel? I'm trying to remove the door because my window fell off the track, it doesn't have power windows so I have to manually roll them up and down.


1- remove the window crank
2- remove any screws from the door panel; sometimes they are hidden by a plastic cap. look inside the elbow rest cavity; remove any screws you see.
3- insert a flat plastic or wooden tool in the shape of (roughly) a scraper, between the door panel and door and start prying the clips which hold the panel to the sheet metal. get as close to the clips as possible with the tool, as that will be the easiest way. there are about 8 of these clips on an average door. when all the clips have come loose of the sheet metal, lift the panel straight up to remove it. you will find a metal rod attached to the inside of your handle; unfasten it and remove the panel completely. that handle looks like it is part of the panel and cannot be removed separately.

My passengers door doesn't unlock, so annoying! I don't know what to do, it won't unlock manually (by unlocking all doors) or with a key.


The locking mechanism has come undone from the lock or is jammed. You will have to remove the door panel and figure out if it broke or just came loose.
The mechanism looks something like this except it will have a vacuum actuator. I will past the door panel removal instructions below. Let me know if I can be of any further help.64a6bcb.gif
door panel removal:
  1. Remove the window regulator handle.
  2. Remove the arm rest.
  3. Remove the door lock knob.
  4. Remove the inner door handle cover.
  5. Using a flat screwdriver, gently separate the door trim panel clips from the door.
  6. Lift the panel to remove it and disconnect the speaker or mirror wires as required.
  7. Installation is the reverse of removal. Make sure the sheet of plastic behind the panel is properly sealed against the metal to keep drafts out of the interior.

I am trying to fix a door handle that will not open from outside


Turn the window handle to where you can see a small 1/2" slot rt at its base where it meets the panel.you'll notice a small brass v shaped clip,you'll need hooked pick or something simular to hook this clip and pull it out of its slot,this release's window crank handle. Once this is off the rest of panel is held on by plastic panel clips that pull loose by pulling panel outwards from door ,and also by a few various screws. once panel is off temp. slide window crank back on and crank window all the way up. You then should have clear view of outer door handle. Handle has two rods attached to it,one for lock assy., one for latch release.This is the one you'll be looking at.Most likely you will find rod has came loose due to broken retainer clip at handle,or casting on handle itself has broken off.If clip is broke you can buy new clip at dealer or at some autoparts outlets,replace and reattach rod(make sure rod locks into place).If handle casting is broke will need handle replaced.It is held in place by two 10mm bolts,two rods preeviously mentioned. If handle is body color matched will need color code(on door jam sticker)to order handle from dealer to match.Lock assy will need to be transfered to new handle,it is held in by two spring clips.You notice two holes one on each side of lock,you will need to push release clips inwards through each hole to release lock and slide it out.to install just push down into newhandlle until clips engage. Let me know if you run into problems. Good luck and if this was able to help you please leave me some positive feedback. Thanks and good luck, Joel

Inside driver's door handle won't open door. Over the past week it seemed like the door didn't open until the handle was pulled further and further back as time went on. Now it is just"floppy" and won't...


you will have to remove the door panel. It is likely the metal rod inside from latch to handle is jarred or fell off. The panel will pry off if you remove all the screws in the door panel and remove lock and window controls.

Removing inside door panel to change the speakers


Door panels are easy, first remove all of the screws, some will be hidden under plugs on the door handle. Using a door panel tool (about $5.00 at a parts store) work it around the panel and pop the plastic keepers out. Done.

Door handle replacement


OK. The door handle has one screw that holds it in place. after removeing the screw the unit will be lose so to speak. You will also have to remove the window handle as well. The window handle can be removed with a screwdriver and a pair of needle nose pliers. first put the screw driver tto the back side of the window handle. Press gentlly against the door panel so you can see the "C" clip which you will need to remove. After removing the "C" clip and the window handle you are ready to remove the door panel which is just snapped on to the door with several plastic pins which should unsnap easily. It wouldn't hurt to use your srewdriver to aid in unsnaping the pins. once you have the door panel off you should be able to see how the old door handle is connected. good luck
