Remove the inner panel and then replace the pin into the handle. There is a small weak plastic clip that holds the pin in place. If the pin is broken check with your local parts house or dealership about the clip or pin. If not you can sometimes find the part online. The store i use is usautoparts.com. Good luck.

You will have to take the door panel off and check the mechanism from the inside of the panel. Usually one of the bushings, retaining clamps, or pushrods inside the doors has come loose or has broken. Sometimes the handle mush be replaced because they cannot be fixed. The handle mechanism is usally held on with two bolts which you can access by removing the door panel. You will have to start by taking out all of the screws which hold you door panel on, there is usually 4-6 screws that hold the panel on, sometimes less depending on if they use press type plastic holders to hold the panel on. If you have manual windows then you should buy a tool from the auto parts store to remove your windows crank. There is usually a screw in the middle of the window crank lever that you will have to remove, sometimes its covered, then you slip the tool behind it and pull it off. You can also buy a tool to help you dislodge the slip fitting that hold the door on. Look carefully for retaining screws as the manufactuer has a tendency to hide them. Once you get all of the screws, window crank, and assocaited windows controls off you should be able to pull the door panel up and off and you will have access to the mechanisms inside to repair the door handle. Follow the above procedure in reverse for re installation of the door panel.

My 93 buick regal custom 3.8l has a bad ac pump and makes an aweful noise when running. The ac doesnt work and the 'clutch' on the pump spins freely, is this an easy fix or do i need a new ac pump?


you would need a new a/c pump, however you you didnt want to replace it and could live with out the a/c, a cheaper option is to replace the belt and bypass the a/c. Most auto parts store will sell you a belt of the correct dimensions if you tell them you wish to bypass the a/c. I've done this for many customers. It can be done on just about any motor.

Best of Luck.....

I have a '93 Buick Regal Custom. Last year I was unable to open the passengers door from the outside, I can open from the inside but not outside. I lived with it until now. The drivers door is doing the...


I have this problem every year with my car, 1993 buick regal custom, 3.8. What happens is it gets cold, warms up a bit, and ice or snow melts and gets in the door, then it gets cold again and it freezes. I go to unlock and open the door from the outside and this problem arises.

There is a vertical rod on the left side of the drivers side, right side of the passenger side, that gets bent, from trying to open the door when that mechanism is frozen up. Just bend it back, a TINY bit and it will start working.

I got tired of taking my door apart every time it happened so i cut a little "door" in the cover thing, so i can get at that bar.

I also tried coating it in grease and that seems to lessen the frequency.

93 buick adjusted door handle now won't open in or outside


let down the window, take a chain with a hook on it ,hook it on to the  handle and if your strong enough pull the chain hard and hold it from the inside and once again if your strong enough turn around and give it a bruce lee with boots on. be careful to put a few towels between the chain and the finish you don't want to wear the solution afterward.
