Interior Door Handle (Latch/Lock Assembly) Replacement

The following DIY will provide instructions to replace your interior door handles (the latch you pull to open the door). I was unable to find any specific DIYs for this process, only some “advice” given with text only. Although the process is not that difficult, I’m always more comfortable with detailed instructions (especially since it requires door panel removal), so I hope this will help out some of you.

(Note: some folks have posted that they replaced their handles without removing the door panel. I didn’t try it, but visually evaluating the access shows that it could prove difficult if possible at all. Removing the door panel is easy enough, so I recommend doing it this way.)


DIY Contents:

First post:
-- Before & After photos
-- Terminology
-- Tools you will need
-- Special note for screw removals

Second post:
-- Procedure for door panel removal

Third post:
-- Procedure for latch handle assembly removal & replacement
-- Procedure for door panel reinstallation



Before & After Photos
Note, I had already replaced the black grips with the F/L2 gunmetal grips. In this DIY, I’ll be replacing the black latch handles with the F/L2 gunmetal handles.

Before:



After:






Terminology used in this DIY:
“Grip handle” or “Grip” – The long handle which you grab to pull the door closed.
“Latch handle” – The movable handle which you pull to unlatch & open the door.
“Latch handle backing” or “Catch” – The cup behind the latch handle, in which you insert your fingers to pull it open.
“Bushings” – the plastic hat-shaped pieces through which (5) of the door screws are installed.
“Caps” – the screw head covers for the (3) screws along back edge of door.
(Note: Handle assembly-specific terminology will be reviewed in the third post.)



Tools you will need:
-- Flathead screwdriver
-- Tiny flathead screwdriver
-- Philips head screwdriver (magnetic optional, but will help)
-- Door upholstery removal tool (optional but worth it. ~$6 at auto parts store.)
-- Paper & pen for screw retention sketch


(Note, my tiny screwdriver has duct tape on the tip to protect the car's hardware)



Special Note for screw removals:
I find it’s often easy to lose track of screws, or remember which screw goes where. I recommend using your pen & paper to draw a sketch of the door and handle area, showing the screw locations. Then, when you remove each screw, pierce the paper with the screw near the sketched location. Here is mine, to show you what I mean:

DIY: Interior Door Handle (Latch/Lock Assembly) Replacement

Door Panel Removal Procedure:


1) Remove (2) screws & plastic bushings near front of door, above speaker.




2) Remove (3) caps covering screws along back edge of door, by prying them out with the tiny flathead screwdriver. Remove (3) screws & plastic bushings.




3) Remove grip handle using flathead screwdriver. Pry the grip near the small cutouts; prying near the bottom with another screwdriver will help. Grip handle will pop off.




4) Remove (2) screws holding latch handle backing.




5) Remove latch handle backing -- pull latch handle open and slide backing off




6) Remove (2) screws under grip handle (magnetic tip will help pull these out once loose)




7) Remove window switch plate by prying up around the edges with flathead screwdriver. (Held in with plastic and metal tabs, and will pop out once loose.) Disconnect window switch wire plug (and mirror wire plug, if driver’s side).




8 ) Remove tweeter triangle by simply pulling it off. (Held on by two fixed plastic pegs at the top and forward corners.) Disconnect tweeter wire plug.




9) Once all the screws have been removed, the door panel is now held on by only five plastic pegs along the bottom edge. Looking along the bottom edge, you will see a slight opening between the panel and the door:



Inside this opening, you’ll see two bolt heads, and somewhere in between a light colored sliver – this is the edge of a plastic peg.

Using the upholstery removal tool, center the teeth around this peg and pry towards the panel. This will properly pop out the peg without breaking it. (If you don't have the upholstery tool, you can probably use the flathead screwdriver or pulling with your fingers -- all at your own risk! I recommend the proper tool.)


If you’re lucky, the adjacent pegs will pop out too … if not, now you’ve got enough opening to use the upholstery removal too to pry them too. The pegs will stay attached to the panel side.



10) Remove the panel by pulling the bottom edge away from the door and lifting the whole panel up. Disconnect wire plug for light (and for trunk release if drivers side).



Note the locations of the (5) plastic pegs.




11) You may have plastic sheeting stuck to the door with some black adhesive. To access the area around the latch handle assembly, pull back the plastic with quick hard yanks. Do not pull it slowly or try to peel it, this will only tear the adhesive or the plastic and make it messy. Quick yanks will pull the whole adhesive strip up. It will remain tacky enough to re-seat later.

DIY: Interior Door Handle (Latch/Lock Assembly) Replacement

Latch Handle Replacement:

Now you have full access to the latch handle hardware:




You will see the wires, cables, & clips attached to the lock & latch mechanisms. I will use the following terminology in the replacement steps:


(Note, the clips on the drivers side are pink, passenger side are blue.)



12) Pry the clip off the cable end, with your tiny flathead screwdriver, to rotate the clip towards you.






13) Pop the cable harness out of the latch handle assembly.

14) Pull the cable end tip out of the front of the clip.





15) Repeat Steps 12-14 for the other cable.

16) Remove screw , which fastens latch handle assembly to the door.




17) Slide handle assembly forward to disengage the three plastic hooks on its back side. Remove handle assembly.




18 ) Install new handle assembly , by pushing it in place and sliding it back to engage the three hooks.




19) Install screw to fasten assembly to the door.

20) Insert cable end tip into plastic clip.

21) Snap cable harness into assembly.

22) Rotate clip to snap onto cable end.





23) Repeat steps 20-22 for other cable.

24) Test lock and handle for functionality!


Latch handle replacement complete.




Door Panel Reinstallation Procedure:

25) Re-seat any plastic sheeting you’ve pulled up, by simply pushing the adhesive strip back into place.

26) Connect wire plug for light (and for trunk release if drivers side).

27) Re-seat door panel along top edge first, then gently push bottom edge to engage the plastic pegs. You should hear them snap in.

28 ) Connect tweeter wire plug; install tweeter triangle by engaging its two fixed plastic pegs and pushing it on.

29) Connect window switch wire plug (and mirror wire plug if driver’s side), and install switch plate by simply pushing it in, snapping it into place.

30) Install (2) screws under grip handle.

31) Install latch handle backing and its (2) screws.

32) Install grip by snapping it into place.

33) Install (3) screws, bushings, & caps along back edge of door.

34) Install (2) screws & bushings near front of door, above speaker.

Right, that's exactly why I did it. I'd found a few threads that said, "oh yeah it's easy, you just do this..." with a few vague steps. I prefer not diving in until i know what's in the pool, ya know? So I thought I'd try to help out those who hadn't done it yet.

Sorry the timing wasn't so good for you! At least it'll work out for solacevip. Solace, there have been a few folks who claim to be able to do it without removing the door panel. It might be possible, but it could be a tight squeeze for your hands, your tools, and/or your hardware. Pulling the door panel's really not as bad as it sounds. You can try without pulling it, but if it doesn't work, at least you know what you'll have to do!

Re: DIY: Interior Door Handle (Latch/Lock Assembly) Replacement

I'm gonna do it using your DYI. I'm just waiting for the weather to get better as I my garage isn't big enough to allow me to have the doors open wide enough to work. I also need to get my hands on the special tool. Unfortunately, the handles are sitting in a corner in my room.

You just find the right forum list by topic (for example, the DIY topics), and just above the table which says, "Threads in Forum: Do It Yourself" (or whatever category you're in), there will be a button shaped like a Tib that says "New Thread" on it. Just click that.

Great! Looks like you may be the first person to actually use it, so please let me know how it works out, and if there's anything I should make clearer or change or whatever.

Re: DIY: Interior Door Handle (Latch/Lock Assembly) Replacement

Everything went extremely well.

Your DIY was helpful and descriptive. The only thing I did differently was that I did not need to use the upholstery tool. I bought one, but managed to put my fingers in the gap and pull the door panel off without a problem.

I also managed to not remove the plastic sheeting. There was enough space where the door latch was to remove the screw and then slide the latch mechanism off and put the new one on.

Unfortunately....I have an 06 Tib so the silver of my door grabs don't match the latches. I'll fix that soon enough.

Great DIY!

Re: DIY: Interior Door Handle (Latch/Lock Assembly) Replacement

I have the F/L1 door grabs...

Seems I want the F/L2 door grabs to match my latches... The F/L2 is more gunmetal in colour.

This leaves me with a center console that is F/L1 in colour. I have the electronic air conditioning.....so the ones with the dials won't help me.

Re: DIY: Interior Door Handle (Latch/Lock Assembly) Replacement

Damn Andy......if there was an award for the BEST written DIY on NT, with the most effort put into it; you'd get the prize for sure!

Just an excellent write up that will no doubt help some people on here.

Repped accordingly.

Nice, thanks Brad! (I guess it helps that it's sort of what I do for a living -- except it's for space shuttle repair, not Tiburon mods! lol)

But ultimately, all I wanted was to give back to the community, since it's helped me so much along the way too!


Thanks again.
