changing handle on 97 Chevy silverado1. A tool to loosen the door panel will be a great asset. A drill motor and drill to take out the existing rivit. A putty knife to release the plastic frame around door handle.

2. Take the plastic frame off and away from the door handle. Do this by locating the plastic catches, push them in and down.

3. Take out the two screws inside the door grip.

4. Slide the tool to lossen the door panel to each of the plastic keepers and pop them out.

5. Do the same for the triangular piece above the door panel towards the front of the door.

6. Wiggle the door panel up and out. The electrical plug ins may keep the door panel too close to the door to work on the handle, use discreting if and when taking the wiring off.

7. Drill out the rivit holding the door handle in place. Slide the door handle forward toward the front of the door. Use needle nose, or whatever you can, to push out and release the two (2) rods connected to the handle. Now take out the door handle.

8. Do the same backwards to replace the door handle, you may want to use whatever you want in place of the rivit. A screw, tapped threads and bolted, etc. will all work.

I don't know who did the below, but it was difficult for me to follow! Not discreptive enough for me!!!

Need a rivet gun and rivets. Remove inside door panel...(need to remove a few screws. Panel is attached by plastic rivets so pull hard but gentle. Start from bottom and work around and up. Then slide it up to remove. I don't know if your door will have it but you might need to remove a metal plate (hexscrews) Now it gets a little tricky to explain. You'll see a thin metal wire attached to the door handle with a plastic lock nut (needle nose pliers to remove. You might also need a drill to drill out the rivets holding the handle. Reattach the handle to the wire BEFORE replacing the rivets. Then work yourself back to installing the door panel.I just did this a few weeks ago with power locks and windows. email me at candyman72101@hotmail.com if you have questions

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.
