Replace driver's side door hdle & locking mechanism on 02 Protege

\015 My car was broken into. The outside driver's side door handle was broken and needs to be replaced. I have purchased a new handle & locking mechanism. What is the best way to go about replacing these items? How easy is it to remove the door skin to do this? Thanks for your help.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 10-12-2018

Answers :

Removing the door skins are not hard, the problem is that they normally use a special tool. Without the tool you may break a few of the plastic clips. If so no worries go to your local automotive department and look for the clips. \015\012
\015\012You will also have at least one screw that attaches the skin to the door frame. Usually remove the bottom of door panel and work around both sides until you get to the window. Then remove the screw and unplug any of the power options..\015\012
\015\012Haynes or  Chiltion manual for your car should show you details.. It is easy for the average DIY person.\015\012
\015\012The handle is just as easy. Do you have metric and torx because you will need them.
