My 96 Camry LE has 9 attachments that are visible. Some have plastic caps covering the screws; others do not. There are screws at the door handle, at the forward portion(with covers) when the door is open and the back edge (small covers). As I recall, there are several friction type fasteners around the perimiter of the panel that can be removed by prying carefully away from the metal portion of the door to free up the trim panel. Once these are loose, the trim around the inside door release handle (the one you pull to open the door) can be pryed in a backward motion. Then the entire panel can be removed by pulling upward and backward at the same time (it easier to do this with the window down). Then it is a matter of disconnecting the wires attached to the various controls for the electric windows and door locks to free up the panel itself. There is probably a plastic skin covering the metal portion of the door. Carefully pull that away to expose the inner workings of the door latch mechanisim. The rest of the procedure should become easy to figure out. I have not removed the exterior door handle itself; but it is a simple mechanism as I recall. Best of luck to you.

How do I repair the exterior door handle on a 1999 Toyota Camry ? Will it be necessary to replace the entire door ?


No the door handle is easily replaceable. you do have to remove the door panel and roll the window all the way up. 2 10mm nuts inside the door cavity and one bolt on the door jam near the lock mechanism. These handles are made of plastic and degrade and break easily after 3 or 4 years. Every toyota owner has to deal with this at some point. I also recommend buying the new handles on ebay as opposed to the dealer. The aftermarket handles are better quality than the original and MUCH cheaper. They are ALWAYS available on ebay.

2001 Toyota Camry - Removing driver interior door panel


you can take a screw driver and pry it off. Be careful if you have power windows, if it falls right off then it could pull the wires loose. The panels have clips that clip to the door. Therefore, the only way to get the panel off is to pry it off.

Drivers door on my 1996 toyota camry won't open.


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls
