Door handle replacement

I have got a new door handle and all the bits to go with it. I took the broken part out, and now I can't remember how to re-fit all the pieces on the handle.

    I have the same problem. I have actually replaced the front and inner on the door and put everything back as I remember it but still can not get the door to 'click' shut. I am now doubting myself as to which way the latch should go, i.e inwards or outwards! Does anyone know of a drawing or a photo I can see?

I tried different ways of putting the door handle and lock together. It took me 5 hours to eventually work it out. Now the problem is solved.

I took a digital photograph of the lock before I put it back onto the machine, so now I have a permanent record to refer to next time. I say next time, because we've had 2 Servis Washing Machines, and between the 2 machines, the door handle has broken 4 times, through no fault of ours, each time having waited for the time switch to deactivate.

I think by now the company ought to make the plastic piece that keeps snapping, out of aluminium.

Replace outer door handle


Yes you can do it yourself . The process is to remove the door trim and plastic waterproof membrane and undo the nuts that hold the handle in place . IT is a bit tricky with the rods and retainers but if you remember where the bits come from there will be no problem. Remember to properly reseal the water proofing or water will come into the cabin from under the door trim.

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.

2002 GMC Savana van inner door latch broken


You can pick up the handle from your local GMC dealer. I paid roughly $90 for both (a bit high...but money well spent!) As noted, yes; you do have to remove the interior door panel. From there it's just a matter of removing 4 nuts (metric #10 socket), and replacing them back once the new handle is slipped into place! The bars that operate the door latches simply snap into the plastic clips attached to the handle assembly.
The operation sounds worse then what it really is. It took me longer to write up this review than it did to actually do the work! 5 minutes max...done!! Hell, if you're local; buy the parts

Door handle broken away from microwave unit.


The door handle can easily be replaced. This is a common problem with microwave oven doors. You would think the manufacturer's would make them a bit more durable.

This is a very simple repair. To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

If you have questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

1997 buick park ave 4 door right front door handle won,t work from the outside


Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.

Side sliding door


The trick is that there is a small clip holding the inside handle in place. Push the panel in and grab it with small needle nose or forceps.

Then remove all the interior panels.

There are seven torx screws holding the intern latch into the door frame, and three interconnecting bars between the outer and inner inner handles.

Once you have the ability to move the inner assemble around you can get to the two metric nuts holding the exterior handle.

The lock assembly is removed by depressing the metal latch on the bottom of the handle assemble after the handle is fully removed.

Reverse and replace and that's it. (don't for get to have extra plastic door panel clips as they will break as you remove the interior panels)

Overall - I would suggest to just take it to the dealer or to a body shop. I'm told they would do it for about $75. I took about 2 hrs to do this and if you are even a bit shaky and drop anything into the door, it is game over. Next time I will do the dealer thing.

I agree read "broken door catch" solution and be particularly careful in respect of the edges of the stailess steel panels - some of the edges are hidden and they are very sharp.
