    The cable is still connected to the handle but, not with the other side. I have removed the door panel, but I am unable to find the female adapter for the driver side internal door handle. Please help, as I live in Panama and don't have access to a good mechanic. Thank you.

There should be a set of fasteners holding the handle in place, probably 2 nuts or more. Use a light to see inside the door handle area to examine the fasteners. Having a replacement part will also help, sometimes it has instructions. At the least you can see the entire handle part and understand how it's mounted in the door.

Door handle repair for Ford fusion


The door handle will not allow unlocking from the inside. This is a common problem with the Ford Fusion 2007 to 2012 and other cars. A cheap piece of plastic breaks that connects the lock lever with the door handle. You can roll down the window and unlock from the outside or hold both levers together and pull open from the inside. This is a very simple repair. Go to any of many web sites for auto parts and buy a replacement. I bought a Dorman 81702 Ford/Lincoln/Mercury Interior Front Driver Side Replacement Door Handle. I popped off the lid that covers a hidden screw inside the recess of the door handle. You have to use a torque bit to unscrew the screw. I then unscrewed the torque screw holding the upper part of the door panel that is opposite the door hinge. The upper part of the door panel can be be carefully pulled away with moderate pressure allowing access to the door handle mechanism. One more bolt holds the door handle part in place. Pull out the broken door handle part, remove the locking cable and put in the new part. Reverse the process to finish up. The whole process took about 10 minutes.

Driver door will not open using inside door handle. outside handle works fine. its almost like the door lock lever is set to lock, no real resistance when pulling lever. pulled door panel and everything...


Hey there,
I have the same problem, for me it was the metal ball at the end of the cable, on the inside of the door, was broken off. To me it seems it needs to have that cable or the clip attaching the cable replace. I took off the door panel and used a mirror to peer inside. You'll have to unscrew a plastic black cover which hides the cables near the mechanism.
Hope this helps

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.

Need to repair driver side door handle. Door will open from inside but not from outside.


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then pull back the weather seal and disconnect the rod to the outer handle and then unscrew the handle from the door.
