SOURCE: cannot remove disk that covers screws to tighten my lock

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.

Most pop off by gently prying off with a small screwdriver. Some can be removed by turning counterclockwise a quarter turn. Please remember to rate my answer

SOURCE: Can't remove the disk that

Hi, W/D here.
Kwikset has basically two styles of cover plates.
If you are on the locking side of the door and facing the knob you'll either see two screw heads (one on either side of the knob), or you see only the cover plate.
It sounds like you have the cover plate type. Here's how to get to the screws:
1. Feel the underside of the knob, and you'll feel a slot with a tab sticking through it.
2. With a fine bladed screwdriver, press the tab up into the slot, and pull the knob towards you.
3. With the door knob off, look around the edge of the trim ring for a screw driver slot. Insert the screw driver and gently pry the trim ring up.
4. You're there!
5. Re-assembly is in the reverse order. When you go to put the knob back on, you'll probably have to use the screw driver to push in the tab as you slide the knob back on.
Best regards, --W/D--

How do I remove a brinks deadbolk lock from door


1. Open the door.
2. Unscrew the 2 screws on the inside and the 2 screws on the edge of the door.
3. Pull the thumb turn off, pull the outside cylinder and ring off, and pull the deadbolt assembly out of the edge of the door.
4. Unscrew the strike plate from the door frame and remove it and the plastic thing behind it, if it was installed.
5. Throw the whole thing in the trash. I wouldn't even reuse the screws!

How do I remove the doorknob to possibly oil it?


it would depend on the door knob construction and what was stiff inside it.
The problem could be part of the handle or part of the lock mechanism.
For a typical indoor door lever handle, undo the screws on the face plate and take the handle off and oil as appropriate. You may have oil handles on both sides of the door.
For a rotating door knob handle there is generally a single screw on the underside of the knob
For a lock mechanism, you could just spray oil inside the mortise moving part (you wouldn't have to dismantle anything to do this!).
However to dismantle it, you'll need to remove handles on both sides of the door, remove the square bar that slots between both handles and remove the lock mechanism (you may have to remove locating screws that exist on the mortise face. If lock mechanism is user serviceable then there will be screws to undo to allow it to be dismantled. If none exist then it is probably worth buying a new one.

How to replace a door handle on a 2006 hyundai sonata, i either broke the handle and need to replace it or I am trying to figure out how to fix the drivers side handle


Step1: First, unscrew the 7 screws holding on the door panel
Step2: Next you carefully pry off the tweeter cover that is where the mirror is.Lift the panel up and off of the door . Undo all of the wiring connections except for the window controller.
Step3: Open the 2 black rubber view ports (Circled in Yellow) and roll the window up or down until you see the 10mm bolts that hold the window in place.
Step4: Loosen, but don’t remove these bolts. Slide the window up, and tape it up, or remove the window and set aside. Next, unplug the door lock plug and move the door panel out of the way.Unscrew the gold 10mm bolts that hold on the metal inner door panel . Also remove the Phillips screw that holds the inner door handle on
Step5: Unscrew the small bolt that holds on the lock cylinder that is behind the quarter-sized black cap on the side of the door. Be careful with that little bolt or it will fall into never land .Pull the lock cylinder out and set aside.
Step6: Now grasp the door handle, and with your free hand smack your hand holding the handle towards the back of the car. This will release the door handle.Under the door handle is a Phillips screw. Loosen this screw a few turns but don’t remove.
Step7: Now undo the 3 black star shaped screws on the door lock.You can now wiggle the inside of the door handle until it comes free. See the tabs that hold it onto the door . When you go to put it back on be sure the tabs get back in the right place.Pull the whole inner door panel and lock mechanism free by wiggling it out of where it sits.
Step8: Now you can undo the 3 cables; 1 from the outer door handle yellow mechanism, 1 from the inner door handle mechanism, and 1 from the inner door lock lever.Put on the new lock and put it all back together. Be sure to test it as you go. I had to turn the lock cable to the inner door lock lever 180 degrees because it was not unlocking properly when I put it back together the first time.
A couple of other notes, there are 2 pieces of plastic that are for the robots to use when putting the door together for the first time. one is a 3 pronged white plastic thing riveted to the inside of the metal door panel. The other is a white plastic thing covering the lock mechanism. You can cut off the fingers and throw the plastic cover away they are both useless and in the way.When you put it all back together, just go in the opposite order of disassembly. It is a little tricky to get the yellow plastic outer door handle holder into place. Be sure that the little tabs grab the metal of the door or things will not fit together properly.Be sure to test the power window after you put the window back in place. Do not overtighten the bolts on the window, it is glass…..

Need to know how to install exterior door handles


I'm assuming that you have the coupe not convertible since I've had same problem with my 97 Dodge Avenger and this is quite common from what I have heard. The handle is held in place by two 10mm bolts. One is easily accessable, located right beside the handle with the door open. The other is a little harder to get at. The first thing you need to do is remove the inside door cover, held in place by four screws and push in clips along the bottom that pull out easily. Two of the screws are visible and in the top corners of the door panel. One screw is located behind the inside handle and once removed the moulding comes off quite easily. The other screw is in the hand hold where you pull the door closed and has a small plastic cover over it. If you have power windows you are able to disconnect the switches once the panel is off. If manual windows, the handles are usually held on by a clip that can be pushed off with a screw driver allowing you to pull of the crank handle. The window needs to be in the closed position so you can access the ONE 10mm bolt holding the outer door handle. Once the interior door panel is off, if any clips remain in the door, take them out and put them where they should be in the door cover it won't go back together properly if you don't. Now you'll need to pull down the corner of the plastic covering the door, don't remove all the plastic just enough to allow access to the bolt. I used a small rachet to get it out. It is in a stupid spot with not much room but is doable. Once out, the handle is only being held by the lock rods to the handle and lock cylinder. The lock cylinder is held by a retaining clip which can be slid off allowing the cylinder to be pushed out. The other rod connected to the handle has a plastic clip on it holding it in place. This can be opened with a small screwdriver. Once opened the rod will come out easily and the handle should come off the door. The only problem reinstalling, that I had, was reconnecting the rod to the handle and found that if you unscrew the door latch, the whole mechanism can be moved down, giving you more freedom to work with the rod. You might want to do this before fighting with the clip holding the rod in place, just a thought as I got mine apart in 20 min. Installing the new handle is quite easy, just attach rod to the handle FIRST before anything else. Once the handle is back on the door the lock cylinder can be pushed back in, it just gets in the way if you put it in the handle right away. Hope this is of some help.
