Replacing the door handles on a Chevrolet Captiva model year (from 2006 to 2018) involves a systematic process outlined in the service and repair manual. For front exterior door handle replacement, start by gathering the necessary tools such as a screwdriver, trim panel removal tool, and the replacement handle. Remove the inner door panel carefully, disconnecting any wiring harnesses and rods connected to the old handle. Unbolt the old handle from the door frame and install the new handle in its place, securing it with screws. Reconnect the wiring and rods, then reassemble the inner door panel, ensuring all clips and screws are properly aligned and secured.

For rear exterior door handle replacement, follow a similar procedure tailored to the specific design of the rear handle. Adjust the steps accordingly to access and replace the rear handle securely.
