Question about 1998 GMC Sierra

2 Answers

I have taken the door panel off of my '98 GMC Sierra to fix my door handle, which does not work anymore. It has no resistance against it, and moves side to side without even trying to open the door. When i get to the handle itself, it shows a rivett at the bottom, which seems as if you would have to take the rivett out, and the handle assembly would slide off for access behind the door panel. Do you know of an easier way to fix this problem?

Broken inside door handles are a common problem and there is not an easier way of fixing problem.drill out head of rivet with a 3/16 drill bit.Then slide handle assy. from panel.To install new handle attach the two rods you removed .Then slide new handle back into the slots and replace the rivet.

Easy its probably the plastic tread that the window motor moves to raise or lower your window or its the window thread is also inside the door. Only way to determine it is move door panel screws, handles, switches then pry the clips out to remove panel. you can see what is wrong/broke and fix.

DOOR HANDLE INSIDE BROKEN 98 SIERRA


It helps to have a flat pry tool to get the door panel off but, other than that it's not too hard. Autozone has a tool in the help section that is made to work with those and they have the replacement push clips that always seem to break.
