Hi, I'm Mike Green. I'm one of the owners of 1AAuto. 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 1AAuto.com. The right parts installed correctly; that's going to save you time and money. Thank you and enjoy the video.

In this video, we'll be replacing an inside door handle on this '98 Camry, same as any '97-'01 Camry. Tools you'll need are a regular screwdriver, a small size, regular screw driver medium or large, a Phillips screw driver, a putty knife or door panel clip tool and a 10-millimeter wrench or socket and ratchet.

We're really going to fly through the door panel removal. If you want to see this procedure in real time, just search our other videos for Camry door panel and you'll see that we have a video that details removing and installing the door panel. You might be able to get enough from just watching this fast motion to help you. Just bear with it and we'll get to removing and putting the door handle in a second or maybe five or 10 seconds.

To remove your inside door handle, it's a 10-millimeter bolt here. Really get the wrench on it pretty good. You take that off and pull the bolt out. The handle slides forward. Then you basically twist it this way and the rods will come out of the component. Then to install, reverse that procedure. That one in, that one in. Slide it back. Put in the bolt and tighten it up. We'll tighten up and put the door panel back on and you're good to go.
