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
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?
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
Robert Sandoval: I was wondering if this repair would be similar to repairing the outside
door of a 97 Ford Thunderbird in any way??
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
McLean Allen: I broke the plastic clip inside the car is there a way that I could get
another one, maybe from you guys or anyone? The clip I'm talking about is
seen at 5:15
McLean Allen: Yes it does I have a 1996 and it worked the only difference was the door
handle, make sure you buy a 1996 door handle instead of a 1997 which I did
do on accident.
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.
Josh Bolden: 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.
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: 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.
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.
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.
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.
SombraLocs: What size are the bolts you put in where the ribbits use to be? My door
handle didn't come with bolts.
1A Auto Parts: It may be a similar set-up. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Crystal Covault: Thanks, it was the window track that had me stumped.... didn't know how I
was going to reach the clip with the track in the way.YOUR VIDEO TOOK AWAY
MY HEADACHE! I will look for your videos in future situations.
J Hunt: Thanks for the video. You save me from paying some guy $150 to do this for
me. I did it myself in about 45 minutes.
cartreachery: nice video - just a few questions before I attempt this myself: a. did you
use a plastic door handle ? If not, who has metal ones ? b. why didnt you
spray to match existing color before installation ? c. how do ordinary
people get their door handles spray painted - to match the car ? d. its
really hard to see what is going on in the section that non car guru's need
the most - the interior of the door - I couldnt really tell what were doing
there thanks in advance from Car Treachery !
Nickolas Swanson: You saved me so much time with this video. The rivets were the worst since
I had no drill nor a chisel but I still got them. Thank you!
1A Auto Parts: @reneecalaway You're welcome. Thank you for visiting our channel.
Cris Bessette: I just followed your instructions and was able to replace my door handle
with no problem. One note- the bolts, nuts and washers for installing this
did not come with the handle from Ford parts. Luckily I just happened to
have the right pieces at home.
awwphooey: Hey 1A Auto- thanks for the clear directions. Followed your video step by
step and managed to get it done in my XLT. It took me about 50 hits to
punch out the rivets though. Whats up with pretending you did it in two
shots? :oD Thanks again, Phoo
