Door Handle Replacement DIY

Hey guys, I had to replace the door handle as the lock button didnt work anymore. Figured i would do a diy for others that might have this issue.


Here is the replacement piece





Open the door, and remove the inside weatherstrip at this location





You will then see a screw hole. Take a torx wrench and loosen the screw.





You can then gently remove the lock assembly





I personally didn't know if the screw would fall into the door so I actually taped the torx to the door temp while maintaining forward pressure





Gently slide the handle toward the back of the car and It will pop out





Using needle nose plyers remove the sensor





Slide the new one in making sure that the rubber gaskets are seated properly and the "L" piece of the handle fits behind this gold piece in the door





Push the lock back in and screw it back down





Test and all should be well! One of the things you can actually replace without having to code the darn thing using Star! Really simple to do!
