In this video, we will show you how to replace an inside door handle on this 1998 Toyota Corolla. Same as any 1998 to 2002. The only tools you'll need are a Phillips screwdriver and possibly a flat-blade screwdriver.

Inside door handle replacement pretty easy. You'll see there's a Phillips screw right in the door handle. Remove that screw. Then the handle slides forward and pulls out. Behind the handle, you'll see there's a clip on a rod. Reach in with your finger and pull that clip back off. You may need a screwdriver. Push up and the handle's off.

This is my original handle. This is a new handle from 1A Auto. You can see it's all the same, the clip and everything. Put your flash rod here, put the handle in. Walk the rod down in there. To lock the clip, you pull up, and pull the handle back. This is more firm than the old one. Get it in place and tap to secure.
