I replaced the outside driver's door handle on my 1993 Camry today and tried to document the process as best I could. I am not an auto mechanic and do not even know the correct names for all the tools, but here's a link you can copy to the file, which is a Word document with pictures: members.aol.com. If you cannot get it this way, e-mail me and I will send it. Good luck!

Not sure if this is the correct place to post this but had to say it: You are amazing !! The way you have described the whole process with pictures is terrific. My most sincere thanks and 'wow'!! to you on behalf of everyone who has benefitted from your tip.

I found another trick to removing the trim around the inside door handle. The above article refers to putting a screwdriver UNDER the door handle and pushing down (that is pushing down the tip of the screwdriver) ... to release a "secret latch". That's the first step. The second step (which is not in the article) is to insert the scredriver ABOVE the door handle ... vertically above the spot in the article. Then gently press the screwdriver handle down. With the screwdriver acting as a lever, the tip of the screwdriver will push UP on the top part of the trim. That will lift the trim up off a small pin on the handle mechanism. With both the bottom and top of the trim piece now "unlatched", slide the trim toward the back of the car, while you open the inside door handle (as mentioned in the article). The trim will come right off. Be sure to slide the trim toward the back of the car, as you move the trim away from the door panel. (There is a "hooked" piece of plastic on the back of that trim that prevents you from just pulling it out perpendicular to the door panel.) 'Hope these fine points help.

PS. My 1996 Camry had 2 screws on the bottom of the door that also were holding the interior door panel in place.
