How to remove door handle on 99 oldsmobile aurora
unscrew the 2 screws on the bottom of the inside panel,
then unscrew the large phillips head right behind the interior handle and remove the plastic cover
next, you need something stiff and wide and flat, like a large meal file with a t-shirt wrapped around it so it doesnt **** up the leather
pry it UP and a little bit outward and it will pop off, I was going on the fly and broke the little brackets and I had to us 1minute gasket to seal them back on really well.
the connectors come off by the little clips on the side, stick a flathead along he side of the connectors and they will click out, you will feel them slip loose.
not the panel should come free from the coor.
next you need to remove the flat metal cover that has 2 bolts in it, basically right in the middle with the right side bolt touching the lock mechanism as well. it will unbolt then slide the tabs down and out...easy.
the door handle is held on by 2 bolts, youll have to squeeze your hands to the right of the metal slider for the window and over the metal bars for the lock. I got the left one with a wrench and the right one I had to stick my left hand where I mentioned and m right hand had the wrench.
the handle will be free by then, and you can slide the left side out first. then gently pull the bottom of the handle housing out and to the left at the same time and it will pop out.
un-screw the two bolts to remove the bars from the lock on the bottom and the top elbow comes off as one piece with the metal bar going downward.
and there you go buddy...I just had to fix my door handle and it reuied removing it, just did it today. took about 2 hours, but I had no idea what was doing and had to figure out the mechanism by myself...computer broke conveniently enough!
