SOURCE: Door handle repair

Then you'll have to remove the inside door skin. It's not too difficult. The hardest part is if you have manual rollup windows, you need to remove a clip behind the window crank and sometimes it will fly off and get lost. Remove all screws you can find (some are behind plastic covers, like for the inside door opening handle, after removing that one slide it to the front of the car to remove the handle), one or more may be hidden under the bottom carpeted area if you have that (run your fingers around the edge area to feel the holes). After all that the door skin should be held on by 'panel pops' sometimes these break if the cars old or if your not carefull. You can get replacements cheaply enough.
If you need anymore help let me know.

SOURCE: broken outside door handles (front

I have the same problem on a Toyota Tercel 1997. I am trying to remove the door panel with the door closed (I can not open the door because the door knob is stuck in the lock position). I think I will have to cut through the panel. Have you found something ? My e-mail is [email protected]

SOURCE: Interior Door Handle

It should be able to be replaced without removing the door panel.
However, removing the door panel is a very simple process. Remove the bolts through the armrest, and pop the door panel loose (it's held on with plastic friction clips) They do make a tool for removing the panel, (just a couple of bucks) or if you're carefule, you can do it with a putty knife and a screw driver ((basically you pry the panel away from the door, replacement is just popping it back on.
Once it's loose, slide up, it is hooked over into the window channel (you do want to have the window down).

On the inside trim, you can 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. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to remove the bolts securing the outer handle on

My passenger door handle broke on the outside i bought a new one how do i go by putting the new one on


You must be the person that wrote another question. Now I understand that one.
OK.
To change the outside door handle, you must open the door and roll up the window. ( Not necessarily in that order.)
Then you must remove the door panel, being very careful not to break or lose the several plastic and/or metal clips that hold it on.
Normally, there may also be a few screws as well.
After that, remove the plastic water cover that covers the sheet metal of the door.
Keep this to install later, you will need some good tape to put it back on.
Find some sockets and wrenches that will remove the handle nuts from the inside of the door through holes you can see.
Most of the handles have wire-like rods that are have plastic tips that can come apart for removal of the handle or latch.
Be sure not to break these, as then the handles will no longer work.

Driver side exterior door handle broke. just one arm broke off the handle, so its still half on but i can't open my door from the out side. can i use the back door handle to replace the front one? also...


This iis very coomon, the part of the handle that broke is the part that releases the latch, you will need to replace the handle, the inside door panel needs to be removed to replace the handle, some of these are revited on and you will need to drill out revits from the outside and disconnect the linkage from the inside, hope this is helpful.

The only door that wont open from the outside is the passanger front door, I am thinking it is electrical somehow


My 1994 XJS is the same way. Many suggest it is the crummy metal inside the door handle (Pot Metal) and/or the plastic connectors. I just got mine the other day, but what can I say, I am 13 years old. My dad and I are going to tear it apart over the next few months.
