Exterior Door Handle

Notice: There is no stand alone exterior door handle article authored by the manufacturer. Pertinent information can be found in the Door Removal and Replacement Article. Not all steps will be required. See: Front Door\Service and Repair

Yes, when you get the door panel off you will see it. Take the bolts out, take the nuts off, unplug the connector, take it out.




  1. Disconnect electrical connector.
  1. Remove door outer handle and key set.
  1. Remove remote control rod.

Relist: Incomplete answer.
I need to know how to connect all the parts and pieces to a 2006 passanger side front door. The exterior door handle was snatched off and thrown on the ground. There is nothing but a hole on the side of my car. I don't know if one on the ground will still work or if I need to purchase a new one. At this point I need to know how to put it back the way it was so I can see if it will work. And I need to how I would know if the door lock actuator is broken and needs to be replaced.

That's all the information that I have on it. Let me opt out and we can re list the case to see if there may be another expert who may have more. No need to reply as that will lock the question back to me, someone should be along shortly. Thank you for your patience.
