adriangs-t parada: A good chance to replace any bad speaker as well...
Christopher Armstrong: Thanks for sharing. Now I can try it - LOL
Mark Ramirez: Would it be easier to have the window up while doing the install?
Eagleguts: I think I am on my third drivers door handle-wish they were made out of
something besides plastic, break easy when it is below zero.
israel morales: very helpful, excelent video.
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?
Louie Gonzalez: Thank you. Very helpful
slappy henderson: Thank you. I just replaced my door handle with the help of your video. Very
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.
p: Would this work for a 97 Explorer too?
BloodReaper: Awesome thanks for the help~~~~
Nathaniel Ruiz: thanks
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?
madrid angel: That is great, I feel much more confident that I can do the job myself. I
sincerely appreciate this video, Thank you!

Steve Timper: How much would should a person pay someone to do this?
Jazlyn Brown: I'm absolutely new to car repairs, but I know I can't afford to take my 98
Ford Explorer Sport to the shop. I'm 20 and this is my first car,
technically it's my mom's old car. All I know is that my driver side door
won't unlock with the key, from inside the car panels/knob, or remote. I
can only open it from the inside by pulling the handle. It looks as if this
fix would work for my vehicle... BUT I'm not sure if I should go ahead and
fix it myself even if it could. Please help me out a little.
Harry Brennan: Just replaced one of the back door handles, which was a little more of a
pain because the assembly is harder to get to. But the video was a great
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
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!
Barnett Ohara: What if my door is jammed closed and I can't release it from being shut?
Alexplus20: My outside car door handle (2004 kia sorento) came loose. Can these things
fall off when driving?
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
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
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
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
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.
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.
