The door handles are all necessary for easing one’s entrance inside and outside the car. Entering and exiting is comfortable with door handles around, so there’s a premium attached to their being dependable 24/7, all of the time as opposed to simply being pleasing to the eyes.
However, what happens when one’s door handles which is also known as “มือจับประตู” in the Thai language ) become broken due to misuse or they get brittle with age? The Camry door handle is secured to the interior of the vehicle’s door. Fixing and replacing the door handle is easy, even if one is a newcomer in the field of repairing things or an avid “do-it-yourselfer,” as long as one follows these simple instructions:
1. Removing the door panel. This the first step. Begin with the window completely up. There are five (5) screws and 2 (2) pins to be removed. Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws beneath: the inside edge of the door (2 screws); the door handle (2); under the light (1); and beneath the mesh cap of the center of the doorway (1). The pins are located on the outer edge of the doorway. Just press them with a screwdriver and they’ll be easily removed by pulling them from the door.
2. Removing the door trim. Add a flat-edged screwdriver between the pull handle and trim. After that, pull with your palms around the outer edge of the trim to pry (using a rocking motion) it loose.
3. Taking away the exterior door handle. Together with the door trim removed, there’s a plastic liner inside. Eliminate that also (be certain to replace it back if one is completed!). Remove the bolts inside with a ratchet set (using a 10-millimeter attachment).
4. Attaching the new door handle. Fit the new door handle into position. In the left, there are four (4) lock bolts to be attached back in. Start re-attaching the first two (in the left), then with another two with the ratchet set.
