This is a common fault in Chevy Astro, and reasonably easy to fix. I had to replace all in my 1988 and starting the process in my 1998. Chevy dealers stock these parts due to popularity. All you have to do is remove the inner door panel (you may want to also by a couple spare fasteners you break at this feat). Handles just bolt in and connect to control rods.

You have to take the inside handle apart to activate the latch manually. If you can't do it from the handle area you have to remove the inside door panel.

All ASTRO van door handles have a generic problem. They are made out of a substandard material that breaks easily after repeated operation. Most likely, the part that the cable is supposed to attach to on your door handle is broken off. Every ASTRO I've owned, I have ended up replacing door handles on because of this problem

You can't remove just the inside handle. The handle is part of the door panel.

Just replace it with another door handle. This is easier since you don't have to take the time to fix it.

You buy a new one and bolt it on. You need to remove the blockoff plate in the door jamb to do it, as well as the license plate cover, so the inner door panel has to come off.

Dude, you need a new door handle. Sorry.

User Avatar

you have to remove the door panel to access the inner door and remove the entire door handle assembly ( from the inside). Once you've got the handle out, remove the lock cylinder, to access the broken key.

The problem is that the inside door handle is broken. Although the inside door handle needs replacement you can still open the door by pulling on the lock lever above the handle.

Yours probably has the same problem as mine...& that is the door handle has broken off inside. Mine has 2 broken tangs & so it will not work but it works inside.

from the inside. take your door panel off and look around in there. the door handle is usually held on with pop rivets that have to be cut off from the inside of the door.

You have to remove the door panel to access handle screws. After that you have to disconnect pulling rods and replace the handle with another one.
