Hi,

My 93 Vandura's passenger side door handle (interior) is broken and I need to replace it. My question is, how do you remove the power window and central locking switches from the door?

Take the door panel off and the switches can be accessed from the back. But no need to do that if only replacing the interior door handle.

Thanks for your response!

The door panel does not come out unless you take out the switch frame. I should have been clearer with my question. The switch frame prevents the door panel from being taken off, so I need to remove those switch frames before I can remove the door panel to access the interior door handle.

@frscke1 Pardon my ignorance, but how do I take it off, so that I can take the door panel off?

On mine, the metal frames that the switches snap into have tabs that are bent around the inside of the opening to hold them in place. I had to reach into the opening with a finger and bend the tabs back straight to remove them. The tabs are soft metal and are easy to bend. Going back together, the frames are reinserted into the hole and the tabs re-bent to hold them for the switches to snap back in.

Hope this helps. smile

So I am still pretty much stumped. I can't figure out how to remove the switches from the frame so I can reach the metal clips on the frame itself. What do people usually use to post pictures on here? I have a picture of the switches that I'd like to show you guys. It may help you help me smile
