This is a FUN one! Get ready for cut up hands and a question to yourself of why you didn't pay someone to do this. Anyway, here we go... Remove the fascia that has the lock & window controls on the doorpanel. (screw & lock/window fascia snaps). Unclip window & lock switches, push out towards the front. Be careful not to break these. Remove screw for armrest, pull doorpanel off from the bottom to the top. Lift panel 'up' off of top. In the doorjamb, on the door, remove the small bolt that goes to the back of the handle (10mm). Now, there's 2 ways to go from here. One way is easier to maneuver, but involves disassembling the inner steel panel (lots of time & patience). The other way is harder, and involves snaking your arm throughout the sharp small crevaces, as well as blindly (may take as much time if you have large arms/hands). Since this may be your first time, neither way would be easy... So I'll describe the 'easier' way. Remove the clear plastic on the door, remove the screws around the inner steel panel (9/32). Remove the bolt at the bottom front of the steel panel (10mm). Carefully lift up on the steel panel, use your knee to prop it upwards. Now gently pull the steel panle back, and unsnap the 2 linkage rods from the steel panel. Use a small flat screwdriver and unclip the retaining clips at the end of each linkage. Remove linkage from power lock motor (pulls downward & slips out). Disconnect power window motor. Here's more fun.. It's better to have 3 hands for this part.... Lift off steel inner panel and turn ut to release the window regulator from the backside of the steel panel. Now, turn it some more to release the 2 rollers that goes to the bottom of the window, the window will drop. Pull out the inner steel panel Look at the backside of the door handle, and remove the 2 clips & linkages that attach to it. Remove doorhandle. Again, you will need tons of patience with this task.

Assuming you are referring to the outer door handle, remove the inner door panel and look at the back of the handle. You will see a couple of steel rods attached to the handle, remove these(they just unclip)and move them out of your way. You should be able to see a couple of small nuts holding the handle to the door. Remove these and the handle can be pulled out of the door from the outside.

How do you replace the drivers side interior door handle on a 1997 GMC Sierra?

What I did for my Yukon was to take the old handle off, by popping it out of its holes and then popping the new on into the holes, because it was riveted into the door, and didnt want to take them out, I did buy the whole handle though, just took the small handle part you hold on to off the new one, and popped it into the old one without taking anything extra off.
