Unless you have the tools and know how, this isn't a recommended do-it-yourself job.

The whole general process (for 1992 - 1996 Camry... 2000 should be similar) is at this link:

http://autorepair.about.com/od/otherodddiyjobs/l/aa092504a.htm.

I'm doing the same thing on my 1996 Camry. 'Got as far as removing the door panel and am ordering replacement part online.

In addition to the advice at the above site, 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 ... 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 above 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. That wasn�t in the article.

How can you replace the front door handle of a Camry 2000?

I have a 2000 Toyota camery that the drivers door handle on the outside broke - not an easy job, the door must be taken a part, and there are screws you don't see that must be taken out so the handle come out. Do yourself a favor, take it to a mechanic who knows Toyota cars, or you will end up with more problems then just a handle.
