You can probably pick up a "broken" A520 on Ebay for $20 or less and use the parts from it. There are always some listed, but there are a few bidders who are in business picking up these cameras and "fixing" them to sell again. Good luck.

The lock on the driver side completely came out when I was pulling my key out. How do I fix that?


You would have to open the door and remove the door panel. Behind the door panel there might be some plastic so remove it so you can see inside the door. Look where the lock is positioned and there is a clip that goes on the back side of the lock to keep it from doing what you are saying it did. Look in the bottom of the door for the clip. It may have come off or just broke due to wear and tear. Replace the lock and put the clip back on the back of it and you are now good to go. Hope that this helped and good luck.

How do I fix the door/lock of my 1991 Acura Integra? I can only open the driver side door from the outside


There are only 2 places that you have the problem on the inside door handle. one is at the handle,and the little plastic holder that holds the rod to the handle broke, or the plastic clip the the door lock mechanism broke. the first can be removed without taking the door apart. the inside door handle has a screw holding it in place. you can remove the handle and see if its broken. the second requires you to remove the door panel, to replace the clip that hold the rod to the lock. I door handle in the car is a dealer item only(sorry to tell you that), the clip for the lock, you can get at the auto parts store. hope this helps

Hi there, My 95 Chev Suburban K1500 driver and passenger doors will not open from the inside when the doors are are either locked or unlocked. Obviously I am only concerned about them not opening when...


Inside of the door there are rods that connect from your inside door handles to the the latch mechanism. The rods are connected to both the handle and the latch with plastic clips. To check you will have to remove the door panels and see if the rods are attached or if the plastic clips are broken or missing. The clips are a very cheap part to replace. Any local auto parts store should have them in stock. Also very easy to install. Hope this helps. Happy motoring.

How do I remove the door panel on a 2000 honda accord?


If you have power windows or locks first remove the negative battery cable. If not you need to locate and remove the screws that hold the door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips).
If you have a manual window crank, you will need a small piece of wire with a hook on the end of it to remove the window crank (slide it behind the crank "base", hook the hook to the retaining clip and pull the retaining clip out).
If you have power windows, when you remove the handles unplug the wires to the window switches and door locks.
Next use a small prybar to remove the interior panel retaining clips (they're plastic clips that snap into the door). Get as close to the retaining clips as possible or directly under them to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel, and pry them out of the door.
Once the retaining clips are removed from the door, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.

Installation is reverse.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

How to remove interior door panel on a 1997 caravan with ower windowq


Start by removing the negative battery cable from the battery. Then locate and remove the screws that hold the interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on covers). Once you have removed the interior door handles, disconnect the wire clips that go to your window and door lock controls.
I personally use a small pry bar to remove the interior door panel; it is held in by plastic snap clips. Try to get as close to, or directly under the snap clips as possible with your pry bar to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel. Once you have released the snap clips, pull the panel upward to remove it. Install in reverse.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
