Hi, I'm Mike Green. I'm one of the owners of 1A Auto. I want to help you save time and money repairing or maintaining your vehicle. I'm going to use my 20-plus years experience restoring and repairing cars and trucks like this to show you the correct way to install parts from The right parts installed correctly: that's going to save you time and money. Thank you and enjoy the video.

In this video, we show you how to replace a rear door handle on this '94 Camry. It basically involves removing the door panel and then swapping out the handle. Tools you need are a Phillips screwdriver, a regular screwdriver and a 10mm socket and ratchet or driver.

To start out, you use a flathead screwdriver, push it up in there, pull that out and down here you go a little further on the bottom. Then that pops off. The power window switch comes from under the front and slides up and out. Then there's a little button right here you press with your thumb. Disconnect that. There's a little plug here that covers a Phillip's screw. For that, use a Phillip's screwdriver. There's another Phillip's screw right under here. Kind of put your screwdriver up in there, feel around a little bit so you can get it. On the back of the door, you have little pins here. Push the center in. There's another one down here. Push the center in and then either using a screwdriver or your fingernails, just pry those out. There are two more of those on the front: one up here and one here. Then, probably the best thing is to use a putty knife. Stick it in, slide it until you hit something, pull out. There's three clips and lift your door panel up and off.

To replace your inside door handle, if it's broken . a lot of times the plastic will break and it won't work . , use a 10 mm socket and driver. There's actually also a Phillips head in here, so you could use a Phillips screwdriver. Then pull your handle off. You can see there's just little clips. You can use either your fingernails or a screwdriver to kind of push those clips off and the rod comes down. Do the same thing with this one. Push that clip off. The rod comes down and it's off.

Obviously, this handle is good. You can see this upper rod connects on here. The lower rod goes into the back of the door. The lower rod is your door handle, so the upper rod is your lock. Put it back in. Clip it on. Put it back in. Clip it on. A 10mm goes right through here. Start all your bolts first. Tighten it nice and firm.

Reinstall the door panel. Make sure you feed your harness up through. Go up a little higher. Push the top of the panel against the window and then down. I like to put my switch on right away just so this harness doesn't try and slide down and get lost down there. Put that in. Push it down in. Push the back down first and the front clips. Clip the bottom. Reset your little clips by pushing them up like that. Insert them. Insert then lock. This screw just kind of stayed in there. It should be up at an angle to get it where it wants to go. Tighten it up nice and firm. Then this has a little tab in it. It goes into a slot so you know you're putting it in at the right angle. Then you have the tab at the front of this that you want to lock into here. So you want to angle the front first and you're all set.
