Did this video help you?

Eddie Echavez: The video was great i think i can do this fairly simple. The yellow clip that attaches to the rod on mine broke where can i pick one up?

jarvis small: Hello, My door is stuck either doors will not work what should I do

slappy henderson: Thank you. I just replaced my door handle with the help of your video. Very thorough!

BloodReaper: Awesome thanks for the help~~~~

p: Would this work for a 97 Explorer too?

Stephen Campbell: Worked for me. Thanks for the video! Note: If both the interior AND the exterior latches are broken. Use a punch and 5/16 drill bit to remove the exterior latch and then use needle nose pliers to push DOWN on the rod to open the door. Then proceed to remove the door panel, etc.

crazycooterMN: Great informative video!

madrid angel: That is great, I feel much more confident that I can do the job myself. I sincerely appreciate this video, Thank you!

dankesh1: Watching the video made this an easy job. I used a 1/4" drill bit and had no problem removing the rivets. I bought a pair of 1/4"-20 x 3/4" socket cap screws and 1/4"-20 lock nuts from Home Depot to mount the new handle. Make sure you get the little hooks on the bottom of the handle in behind the door handle before you tighten the mounting screws.

Stephen King: What size bolts and what type nuts do you recommend for this project?

Steve Svensson: Your video was a great help. Thanks!

Chris MacLean: excellent video, exactly what i was hoping to find. Never did this work before but managed to get it done in half an hour. Thanks alot!

Alexplus20: My outside car door handle (2004 kia sorento) came loose. Can these things fall off when driving?

Frank Johnson: outstanding video on how to replace this handle had a friend that is a car dealer and tried to do it himself he worked on it for about 6hrs and still wasn't able to fix it, i was pretty sure i knew how to do but watched your video just in case i had it out and new one back in, in about 20mins door panels and all thanks for the help

Barnett Ohara: What if my door is jammed closed and I can't release it from being shut?

Robert Sandoval: I was wondering if this repair would be similar to repairing the outside door of a 97 Ford Thunderbird in any way??

Jesse Vasquez: Hi I own a 1991 ford explorer and the rod latch for the exterior door handle has come undone and the clamp is missing is the clamp easy to replace

Riley Pop: @covault4yeshua what video did you use to do back doors

chrisbernier7ify: Awesome video, thank you so much for posting this! Was using a Haynes manual and it just said to detach the door latch actuator, no pictures, no help. Just like the previous commenter (covault4yeshua), I was stumped at getting to it until this video showed me how to move the window track. Thanks for saving me a ton of money on a mechanic!

1A Auto Parts: If you look at the clip it may just attach to the rod, some times they just clip on.

Andrew Oelfke: I'm wanting to replace the door on my 92 Ford Crown Vic, Im more worried about the wireing. Im wonding if I cant use the old wires on the new door that I bought, also just some general help with it.

Wil' Washington: I have a 2001 Ford Explorer XLT. My tailgate door handle snapped internally but the handle is still attached. Was told it is some plastic piece that needs to be replaced. Do you guys have a video detailing that that would be useful to me? Thanks!!

1A Auto Parts: Thanks for stopping by and checking us out. Have a great day!

1A Auto Parts: They don't come with bolts. You can either attach them with rivets like the factory had done, or you could get a couple of small bolts from your local hardware store.

Fernando Magdaleno: ok ill give it a try these weekend thanks....

Parmesana: never realized how many things go wrong with an Explorer.. I have done some work myself and videos like this are VERY helpful THANKS.

Tricia Robello: @Cristofre After reading some of the post I went and bought the nuts and bolts prior to getting my handles from "1aauto", they came with the nuts and bolts :-) really nice flat head black bolts painted black.

Mac McClanahan: Thanks Mike! Saved me a lot of trouble.

J Bizzness: I have a 2001 Explorer and I got to the yellow clip its reversed and can't seem to take it out.. HELLLLP

HAVOCBJJ: Great video. well produced, and well explained. I have never used your company for parts before, but I will now.

Rory Bertram: Wanted to give a huge thank you for a great video. Any advice on how to replace a handle if the door won't open?

1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video that shows you how to make this particular repair. We'll keep this in mind during any future repairs that we may make.

Tricia Robello: UPDATE… with the back door that would not open from the inside or outside, took out the two bolts that hold the seat to the floor, the seat lifts up hinged and out of the way. With front seat moved all the way forward plenty of room to work. Had the other door panel off so I knew where the clips were, starting at the bottom of the door under the speaker got that clip out , it went great from there THANKS and WOW received handles in less than 48 hours after ordering with your free shipping.

Tiffany Black: just wanr to say thabk yiu fof postubg this video i was able to put my handle on myself with your help. thank you

Christy Snodgrass: My door handle has been kinda loose for a while now. I wondered if it was something that needed to be replaced... apparently I need to do it before it breaks and I can't open the door anymore. I had no idea that it was such a common problem in Explorers. Thanks for all of your videos!

1A Auto Parts: Thank you for visiting our channel on YouTube. Have a great day. 888-844-3393

beta0blaster: I have a 1996, will this method still work? I've opened up the door before and everything looks pretty similar from what I remember.

diplomatsking: Thank you! This was very detailed and helped completely...took me two days because my previous window repair wasnt correct but I got it! I will recommend you guys!

illicitdolphin: I have a problem with my door handle breaking. I have bought 2 doors handles in the past month and it seems they are breaking because of the window regulator. When I installed the second one I realized it. The bulky part of the handle that holds the latch bar on the inside gets caught behind the top bar of the window regulator. Seems as though the window regulator should be somehow adjusted further out so that the handle won't get stuck and break. Is this possible? Manufacturer defect maybe?

1A Auto Parts: Thanks for checking us out. Have a great day. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video that shows this repair. If you remove the interior door panel off of the tailgate, you should be able to look inside and see what may have broke. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: The Mustang might be different, we currently do not have an auto repair video for that particular repair. Here's a video that will show you how to remove the door panel so that you can service it. youtube.com/watch?v=dvNk5ZncW_8&feature=plcp

1A Auto Parts: HI Jorge, you would need to rivet them back in or buy some bolts to bolt them back into place from your local hardware store.

thefaketahare: thanks this video helped alot, I was able to replace the drivers door handle on my mercury mountaineer. use 1/4-20 x 1/2 bolts for the handle.

Dylan Pioli: Hey I'm on my 3rd door handle on the rear pas side from you guys and my rear driv side just broke. I got a couple questions. Is there a way to ajust the mech to keep the intact and is the rear window tract one piece?

1A Auto Parts: You may be able to pop in off of the rod with a flat head screw driver.

1A Auto Parts: This video shows you how to replace the outside door handle on a 98-04 Ford Explorer. if you need to replace the inner door handle on your Ford Explorer, here's an auto repair video that will show you how to do that. youtube.com/watch?v=l7CkwILS8b8&feature=plcp

Connor Case: this happened to all 4 doors... is it something cheap to replace

Martin Villa: Thank you for showing me how to do it.......time to tackle the door handle.

1A Auto Parts: @Cristofre Thank you for checking out our Ford Explorer door handle replacement video. We have these door handles available on our website. 1aauto.com/1A/DoorHandleExterior/Ford/Explorer/1ADHE00178?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=youtube&utm_campaign=1ATony
