SOURCE: lneed to remove drivers side door panel

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

1999 Hyundia accent door handles won't work

Go to ebay I bought two new outer handles and two inners for my '97 accent. They are five bucks a piece you can't beat it and free shipping. Take the inner panel apart if you're going to change them yourself. You have the mirror guard that pops right off with a flathead screwdriver, then unscrew every philips-head bolt on the panel there should be roughly four screws. Then once you remove the panel, two 10 mm bolts for the handle which are inside the door are what hold the handle on. Good Luck!

How do you replace drivers side mirror on 1997 GMC Jimmy?

you need to remove the inner door will have to look for the screws holding the panel on at the arm rest area and behind the door handle.were the door lock lever is you will have to remove the plastic cover.then if you have power windows its easier as you don`t have to remove window handle,if its manual windows then there is a clip that must be removed to remove the handle,its located between the handle and the door panel and usually faces the handle knob,push the clip off of the handle.then you will have to go around the edge of the panel along the side and bottom and pull outward to disconnect the push in clips from the door.then move the panel to remove it from the door(may have to disconnect wire connectors).then in the upper right area of the inner door panel the bolts will be visible,make sure window is up.remove bolts and electrical wires if power mirrors and remove the mirror.install in reverse order.
