Broken Door Handle on 1998 Chevrolet C1500 PU

\015 The driver door handle broke on my 1998 Chevrolet C1500 PU. I need to know how to remove the door panel as well as instructions to replace the handle itself. I don't want to break anything 'cause I don't know what I'm doing.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

Answers :

Carefully use a screwdriver or chisel to pry the interior panel off of the door...it's thin, like an upholstered piece of hard board, held on by plastic ribbed push-studs, every so often. Those studs can be pryed out and pushed in to reinstall many times if you're careful but I did manage to break one on my truck. Of course there is also a couple of screws near the door handle as I recall but they are visible. A small piece of triangular shaped plastic must also be popped / pryed off of the forward window area. I'm drinking right now, but I think you may have to drill out a rivet to remove the old handle assembly but it is really easy, just pick a drill bit about the same diameter as the rivet and drill it till it falls apart. Install the new assembly with a pop rivet of your own. good luck

Rear door will not open on my 2007 Ford Fusion. It won't open from the inside or the outside. I removed the interior door panel and can look inside the door.

Door latch I saw that you had replied to another question about the inside door latch of an Accord. My problem is that the handle/latch that opens the door now flops because of the broken plastic mount/housing behind it. Basically, the plastic that the chrome handle attaches to is split and the handle can then pull away from the door. Does this require disassembling the door or can the work be done easily? Any help you could provide would be great. Thanks in advance.


Once you remove the screw that is holding the plastic piece, for the latch it should slide out you dont have to remove the pannel to do this but in order to remove the door panel you have to remove the little plastic piece!!! ... 1992 Honda Accord
