Default 97 Camry Drivers Door Handle

The drivers door was froze shut this morning, in the process of pulling on
it, the handle snapped off, anyone know how to remove this? Do ya have to
pull the inside door panel off or does that ring around the handle come off?

Your going to have to remove the panel, and look for the bolts holding
the latch etc..... The lock cylinder will stay in place. Wish my door
problem was that easy. I have a door that wont open inside or out, and
getting to the panel without damaging it will be bothersome.

Perhaps I'm over cautious, but I don't use that outer door flap to open
the door - just lift on it to unlatch the mechanism, then open the door
by pulling on the edge of the door itself - no worries of breakage
there!

I have a problem with my rear drivers side door, it won't open from
the inside.... an no... it's not the child safety lock. I think from
what I can see, is a broken plastic latch of some kind broken inside
the door.

If you don't have a Haynes manual, the free guide on Autozone on
earlier Camrys can serve as a guide. Yes, pull the inside panel and
remove the bolts that hold the external door latch.

those broken plastic parts might be hard to get...you could try another
form of attachment: weld, wire, epoxy, tape. There shouldn't be too much
stress on them when operating the mechanism. Will have to remove the door
panel and investigate.

This happened to me and expoxy worked for a while, treating it gingerly.
Finally broke down and bought the repl part. 30 min later was fixed.
