Alexplus20: My outside car door handle (2004 kia sorento) came loose. Can these things
fall off when driving?
Barnett Ohara: What if my door is jammed closed and I can't release it from being shut?
Stephen King: What size bolts and what type nuts do you recommend for this project?
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.

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

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!

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

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: 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.

handle on my mercury mountaineer. use 1/4-20 x 1/2 bolts for the handle.

rear driv side just broke. I got a couple questions. Is there a way to

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