SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: hyundai accent '02 inside door handle & Lock removal

Removing the door is very tricky, trust me on this. I ended up breaking it the first time, so please learn from my mistake.

1. Remove all visible screws: 2 at bottom of door, 3 on front near hinge, 1 on inside the door lever. You will need an average size phillips screwdriver to do this.

2. On the door handle itself, you will see two circles. Pop the front one out. You will need a LARGE size phillips screwdriver to do this.

3. Once screws are removed, take a (standard) flat-head screwdriver, preferable one with a large face, and pry the triangular piece of plastic (that covers the outside SIDE mirror) off. This will aide in puting the door panel back on...TRUST ME!!!

4. Take the same flat-head screwdriver, and pry behind the door lock (at the same time, push forward toward the door hinge). The assembly should pop out.

5. Gently pry the door panel from the door, making sure not to break any unnecessary pieces along the way. The door panel should be hanging by the window sill opening.

6. This is where it will get tricky. It is advised that you use help with this part: Angle the door panel at a 45 degree angle. AT THE SAME TIME, slightly bend and twist the door lock handle until it fits through the hole. You will see the 3 pegs the held it in the door from before. Also note: Be careful not to break the 2 poles that are attached to the lock.

7. After popping the lock through the hole, you should be able to lift the door upward, and off the sill. Repeat these steps in reverse order to re-attach door panel.

Be careful not to rip sound-deadening paper found on inside of door unless you intend to remove or replace it! Not only does it prevent dirt and moisture from entering your door (and possible rusting it from the inside out), but it makes your speakers sound better too!

-SportTunerFreak

**It is also recommended to put a tiny bead of silicone on the inside of the door panel to help suppress any rattling, and prevent moisture and dust from entering. It also helps your screws obtain a tighter fit. Hope this helps!

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.

How to tighten kwikset #991LL


Remove inside lever by loosening the setscrew and pulling. Carefully pry off the inside cover. Make sure both screws are tight. Replace inside lever. With door unlocked, the outside lever can be removed in the same way as the inside. All that is necessary though is to be sure the setscrew on the outer lever is tight. Check to be sure the lock is tight and operating correctly before closing the door and locking it.

The deadbolt inside turnbutton is held on with a small setscrew. Remove it and the inside cover. Be sure the screws under the cover are tight. Check the lock operation, replace cover and turnbutton.

on the inside of the door look on the bottom of the lock cover. There should be a hole with a screw or allen head screw. Remove the screw and you can access the the rest of the lock.

Can't remove the disk that covers the screws to tighten door handle with lock


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--

Change batteries on kwikset pushbotton lock.


Hi,
If it's the lock I think it is, all you need to do is to remove the two screws on the inside of the door that holds the lock to the door. Pull straight out on the whole assembly. You should see the exposed battery once you have removed the outer case and handle.
Hope This Helps,
