Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you inside door handle replacement. We're going to do the driver side on this two-door. This is the same for a driver's front on a four-door. It's 2001 to 2005 Civic. Items you need include a new door handle from 1AAuto.com, small flat blade screwdriver, and a Phillips screwdriver.

Switch off your dome light and grab your flat blade screwdriver. Look at the top and pry out this little trap door. Get the screwdriver in there, turn it down, bring it out. Expose two Phillips screws. Pull the handle out, the clip in behind, push it in towards the car and off. Pull the rod iron out. You have a harness connection here if you have power door locks. Press down and release. Remove your door lock switch, just two Phillips screws.

Reinstall your switch if you can't actually put it in correctly, if it doesn't line up, switch in place and thread through here first. At first, it can be a little difficult if you've got fat fingers like I do. Then tighten them up. Reconnect your harness, find your rod, put it in. Make sure you bend this back to back, small part in. Clip that on and replace. Put your two screws back in place and tighten them up. Then your trap door, the two tabs go to the bottom.

Thanks for tuning in. We hope this video helped you out. Next time you need parts for your car, please visit 1AAuto.com. Also check out our other helpful how-to and diagnosis videos.
