Your diagrams do not specify how to actually install the replacement part, I was hoping to receive detail instructions of how to install the part. Maybe when I disassemble the door I can figure it out.

Once you pull the handle it is evident how to replace it. The handle is held with a single bolt and hooked on the other end to hold it in place.


Do you have the new handle?



Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes, I have the handle, but I am waiting for a trim removal kit to arrive in the mail. I was hoping that once that I remove the screw, It want be necessary to remove the inner door trim or glass. Is this an accurate assumption?

You only need to tape the tip of a flat screwdriver with electrical tape to remove the trim. All you are doing is protecting the plastic.


Yes you use the procedure I posted above to remove the inner panel and the glass then you can reach through the end of the door to remove the handle. Once you get into this let me know what questions you have and how I can help
