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 Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to remove and reinstall a rear inside door handle on this 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis. Pretty easy task, the only tools you'll need are a Phillips screwdriver and a regular flat blade screwdriver. This is pretty much the same for any '98 to '02 Grand Marquis.

Okay, you use a flat blade screwdriver, and I'm going to carefully pry this up. Pry it up here and pull it right out. Now you'll need a Phillips screwdriver, and carefully remove these two Phillips screws. Then use your flat blade screwdriver and go right in here. You'll see a tab on the side. Pry out and pull down one side and turn it over, same thing right over here. Pry up. Now you want to use your flat blade screwdriver, pry down on the top of this bezel, and then it comes out. There are two covers here. Okay, and now there are four screws. Phillips to remove here, here and then one down here. Speed up the film here as I remove those four Phillips screws. Once those screws are out, you're going to lift up on your panel. You have to kind of shake it a little bit to get it out, and then pull your switch through. Okay and the panel comes off.

You want to carefully pull up your water shield, and then the area around the handle you probably will have to tear the little foam insulator and pull it out from around the handle. There's a Phillips screw right under here. Remove that screw, then slide your handle forward and pull it out. Then when you look behind, you'll see that it's attached to a rod, and what you want to do is kind of pull it down and then forward and off the rod like that.

Okay, for installation, it's the reverse of the procedure. Put it on, up, into place. Okay, there are two clips here, just make sure they go in right there. Push it in and back and reinstall your screw here.

Okay, put the shield back around the handle. Make sure you pull the wiring harness through and stick the shield back on as well as you can. Some extra tape or something might be in order if it doesn't stick on there really well. Put the panel back in. Make sure you feed your switch through the hole in the insulation here. The clips just go right into the door. In place, make sure that your lock button goes up and in. Push it against the door and down and on. Then, pull your switch through. Okay, and I'll speed up again as I put the 4 screws back in. The 2 longest screws are the ones that go way down in the bottom and right under the door handle and then the kind of short pan head screws go into the door pole. Fast forward again as I put the Phillips' screws in and tighten them up for the switch. We hope this helps you out.
