Cannot remove disk that covers screws to tighten my lock

We can get the handle off but not the disk that is located against the door itself where we presume that screws are located to tighten the lock set My Kwikset door handle is very loose also. I don't understand how to tighten the screws either.

The screws are located on the non locking side of the handle. To get the cover off most pop off by placing a small screwdriver behind the edge and gently prying. Paint/varnish will make this harder so you my have to take a razor and cut around it.

Please rate.

How do I remove the inner door panel on a 2007 GMC Yukon XL Denali to get access to the door opening/lock rod system?

Welcome to Fixya

Disconnect the negative battery cable first to ensure your safety. You will see a small trim panel a few inches above the interior door handle (behind the armrest). Pry off the panel with the trim panel tool or a flat-head screwdriver. Remove the two 10 mm bolts that are behind the small trim panel. Pry off the vertical trim panel mounted on the handle that connects the power window controls and the door panel. Once the panel is removed, use the socket wrench to pull out the two bolts behind it. Pry off the small plastic piece around the door lock tab (upper part of door handle). Once the piece is removed, detach the door lock tab with your hand. Unfasten the sail panel using the trim panel tool or the flat-head screwdriver. The sail panel is on the corner of the door panel, directly across from the outside mirror. The panel is only attached by clips. Pull your interior door handle toward you, and pry off the trim panel behind it. Remove the bolt made visible with the panel removed. Pry up the power window control panel. Then unhook the electrical harness from the rear of the panel. Use the door trim tool to unhook the door panel clips. Insert the tool between the door panel and the door, and release the clips. There are several clips on each side of the door panel. Push the door panel up, then pull it away to remove it from the door.'

Thank you for using Fixya!

hiplady yep you might have to remove the console on the tiller which is held on by phillip screws located under the console. After you have all the screws out maybe 4 -6 screws depending on the type scooter console cover you have. Carefully remove the plastic cover and you should be able to see the throttle handle. It is held in place by a nut that tightens against a plate that the post goes through. That nut is loose or check to make sure that the plate holding the throttle handle is not loose on the tiller itself(some are held on by screws some are welded to the tiller) If you can tighten the nut between the throttle handle and the plate. Hope this helps you

Door handle need to be re tightened. Do you hav...

if its just the handle itself it sounds like the fixing clips have come adrift or broken off,the handle strip will need replacing if its the whole console thats loose remove the outer door cover this will give you access to panel screws and may allow you to see more of the handle fitting inside.

I nee to tighten up the freezer door handle on a sub zero 650?

There are different handles depending on serial number. The older of the two is at the top of the door. The screws are covered with a magnetic trim piece. You can remove this by putting tape on the chrome and pull up. You can then tighten the nuber two phillips head screws. The newer model is on the door itself. These are held on with small set screws accessed from the bottom of the handle. You may get by just tightening the set screws. If not you need to remove the handle by removing the set screws. You can then tighten the standoff and reatach the handle. For the 632 same procedure except it will be on the side.

Loose handle on door

The door handles mount on hex bolts sticking out of the door, the door handles have key hole inserts that match with the bolts. The door handles are then slid in one direction to lock the handles in place. Removal is the reverse. To tighten the door handle screw the bolt out enough that you can still put the handle over the bolt heads and slide the handle to lock the handle in place.
