What do you think about this video?

1A Auto Parts: @Ron Coker You may be able to get one from the dealer. Hope this helps you out. 

Thomas Gibson: Is there a name for the rod at 3:02? Mine is bent to hell and needs to be replaced but I can not find it anywhere online. I've searched using the term "door rod" but I have no clue if that is correct.

Ralph Bennette: Do you have video on how to replace the door lock mine is good but fell inside the door

Ron Coker: I need to replace the broken clip on the back of the door lock cylinder that is being pointed out during the video. Where can I get one?

Green Power Farm: Thank you very much sir !

Fermin Garcia: How would I open my door if both door handles dont work 

Joshua Combs: What can I do if my interior door handle is broken along with the exterior door handle does not work either? Am I screwed or is there a way to get the door open somehow so I can replace them?

GuNuRz: Thank you! This helped me out

Chris Eager: Friggin' awesome vid! I was out there in the rain for about 3 hours struggling to figure out how to connect the door handle and lock rods and still have enough space left to get them back in the door...better luck banging my head off a wall until I watched this. Thanks from Canada.

T-BONE L: Which hole are you putting the rod in? Also do you press that clip all the way down before putting the rod in? I put the rod in the top hole and I could unlock my pickup, but when I tried to lock it, it was stiff then it popped (assuming the clip came off because they key has no give anymore)

1A Auto Parts: Unfortunately we are currently doing videos for other vehicles but we will possibly be able to do a video for something like this later on.

mini4637: laberdad que este videoseguro mealludado a emprimer lugar a orar dinero y eaprendido algomas gracias por todo

1A Auto Parts: Near the beginning of the video we show you how to remove the rod from the left hole on the handle, and also how to remove the clip that holds the rod. The rod and clip should be placed back in the same location on the new door handle that you receive.

1A Auto Parts: @GrooveyBeach Done that myself to. Make sure the door is unlocked, pull up on the door handle and flip the latch up.

radcam69: FYI, this works for a 2000 Tahoe old body style. (Z71 as well)

jrpurdy1964: You are a lifesaver! I was wondering how to properly do this and your videos are exactly on time!

1A Auto Parts: @johnson3369 It sounds as though the tumbler may have broke, or you may want to take the door panel off to see if anything connecting to the door lock has come loose.

350AmericanMuscle: I have a question, are these door handles common to break on these trucks? I have a 96 gmc sierra and my drivers side handle makes a clicking noise when pulling the handle all the way up when opening the door. Is this a sign that my handle is on its way out? It still functions properly and locks, but makes a clicking noise that you can feel when opening the handle all the way up. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

1A Auto Parts: @waterstreetpc They way that the rods line up with the latch may be different.It's not something that we've tried here. Not 100% sure if this would work for you.

1A Auto Parts: Yes you would need to transfer the key lock cylinder to your new door handle. We carry the door handle seen in this video on our website with free shipping in the lower 48 states. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: Follow this video and you should be fine. There may be a small clip that locks the rod into place on the door handle. They aren't hard to open, or unlock usually.

abec224: great video thank you. I

ray miller: guys the door on 92-95 seiarra wont open have remeved panal and metal panel on inside seems the latch i frozen or stuck onlt thing i can think of is to sawzall the latch in detween the door to open it help

VictornMaya Garza: I followed this video to find that my door latch was not broken (although I broke it in process of removing it. The video was helpful in the eventual replacement of the latch. However, the inside rod is not opening the door. It is attached to the latch assembly, but there seems to be too much play. I tugged on the rod with the handle removed (how I broke it) and the door wouldn't open. It does open from the outside. What am I missing?

candancemh: Do you have to get a new key when you install a new door handle?

webrik33: i replace the actuator and the outside door handle. white greased rod clips and connections. everything worked great until today. temp down to 25 outside and door lock sluggish to open/close. key worked but took some force. this was my problem that led to me replacing actuator.

350AmericanMuscle: @1aauto I'll try the lithium grease and see if it makes a difference. What would i have to look out for when a door handle does in fact break, like are there any warning signs before it just breaks?

1A Auto Parts: You're welcome, thanks for watching. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: It could be an issue with the motor of possibly a bad connection too. You may want to check the wiring to see if there are any loose connections.

1A Auto Parts: The new tumber would come with a new key.

1A Auto Parts: @350AmericanMuscle It could be making a little noise due to things drying out.You could try to put a little white lithium grease on the handle inside of the door where the rods connect to it. That might help a little.

1A Auto Parts: @zaewon At the current time we do not have a video that shows this on a 91 S10.

1A Auto Parts: Hi Jeremy, You may want to make sure that all of the clips are in place and are holding the rod in position. It may be possible that one of the clips are worn, causing the rod to break free. If this is the case, you should be able to buy some new clips at the dealer. They shouldn't be a whole lot of money. Hope this helps you out.

johnson3369: your videos are very well done. my question is that I have a 97 sierra and I cant unlock my driver door with a key. It just freely turns but I can lock and unlock with the power locks. I seen a clip in this video that I wonder if it could have broke?

Elitephoto phoenix: maybe im missing something but I cant find the video on how to remove the inner door panel (metal portion) to replace the exterior drivers door handle.

1A Auto Parts: You shouldn't have to, you should be able to service it like we did in the video.

Chris Moreno: 1aauto where is your video on removing the interior door panel? looks that youtube has removed the video response link. your videos have helped a lot, just need the interior door panel removal. thanks 1aauto!

mibbyalina: Hi I have a 99 Suburban and it was stolen a while back they broke the outside door handle and the door lock cylinder .I was wondering if i should replace both parts and for the door lock cylinder where can i find it so it can match my key..do I have to go to the dealer or can I go to any store to buy it? Thank You for your help

1A Auto Parts: @coultrs At the current time,we do not have a video that shows that particular repair.

Joshua Combs: I have a 2000 K3500 Crew Cab... The driver side rear door handle broke.. Would this video be the same steps to fix mine?

1A Auto Parts: Hi AL, We currently do not have an auto repair video that shows you how to replace the rear door handle on your 1991 GMC Suburban, however if you take the door panel off from the inside, you should be able to access the bolts that hold the handle on from inside the door. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

brian fowlie: good vid...but does not go into detail how to get to the window guts out lol ...so you cant change handle without doing soo?

1A Auto Parts: @drellim50 If you can't get the latch to release on the inside of the door, you may want to bring it to an auto body shop. They may know of a trick to get it to open for you without causing any further damage. Hope this helps you out.

1A Auto Parts: If you tug on the rod with your hand the latch should open, if it does not you may want to see if it has gotten stuck somehow. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: @jrpurdy1964 Glad we could help. Thanks for checking us out.

1A Auto Parts: @mini4637 De nada. Gracias por visitar nuestro canal de reparación de automóviles.

1A Auto Parts: HI Chris, copy and paste this code into YouTube search x1RT5FFnMk8 it will show you how to remove that interior door panel. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

Chris Moreno: How do you remove the black panel behind the interior door panel? Thanks

Dan Smith: I need to remove and replace the rod that connects from the door handle to the lock mechanism. Will I need to follow this video's instructions and then remove the assembly? Does it have a clip that holds it in place, or will it just pop out? Thanks for the great video series and suggestions.

1A Auto Parts: You should be able to order some from your local dealer.
