Fig. 1 Door handle removal

Servicing the front door handle involves several steps. First, you'll need to remove the interior door panel to access the handle assembly. This typically requires removing screws and clips that secure the panel to the door frame. Once the panel is off, you can disconnect the electrical connections for any switches or lights on the panel.

Next, you'll focus on the door handle itself. Depending on the specific model year and design, there may be additional fasteners or clips holding the handle in place. Once these are removed, you can carefully pull the handle assembly out from the door, being mindful of any connected cables or rods.

To install a new front door handle, you'll follow these steps in reverse. Secure the handle assembly into place, reattach any cables or rods, and then reinstall the interior door panel. It's important to ensure all connections are secure and that the panel is properly aligned before tightening any screws or clips. Regular maintenance and periodic checks can help prevent issues with door handles and other exterior components.
