2003 Accord: Sedan..mechanism assembly (wire)..interior

Customer Question
I have a 2003 Accord...
I have a 2003 Accord Sedan. I am trying to understand how to repair the inside door handle, particularly the mechanism assembly (wire) that opens the door from the inside. I have reviewed the schematics of Chilton.com to understand how to remove the interior surface door panels to acces this part, but I don't really understand it. Any helpful hints or instructions?

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
