Can't open my door handle from inside my 93 Accord. HELP!


Recommended Posts

My window is broken, and I want to get to my door panel. I can't open the door handle though. I opened up that little screw door and unscrewed that single screw, yet the door handle won't come out. What am I doing wrong here? It's so frustrating! Here's a picture of what I am talking about:

Not sure sir, never taken an Accord panel off before. This is something that is likely covered in a Chiltons/Haynes manual so I would crack that bad boy open and see what it has to say.

On my '91, there are two screws that must be removed before the plastic trim piece can be removed. But, by your pics, you have only one screw. Once that screw is removed, you should be able to pull the door release lever inward (toward the driver's seat as though you're opening the door, then the plastic trim will slide out and off the release lever. It is a friction fit. Then you need to remove the actuating rod from the backside of the release lever by pressing away the plastic clip that surrounds the actuator rod. Then the rod will slide out of the actuator. The rest of the door panel is retained by plastic clips and screws in the bottom of your armrest.


Hope this procedure works on your '93.
