SR5 Door Handle removal

Does anyone know if there is a recent write up for door handle removals? I just got the color matched handles to replace my chrome SR5 ones.

All the pictures are no longer posting on this older thread.

Thanks

Never actually removed the handle on my 4Runner, but i have on other cars. Im assuming itís the same concept.

Open the door of the handle you want to remove.
There should be a black plug on the edge of the door adjacent to the handle.
Remove plug and shine a light to see what screw is in there. The ones iíve seen are Torx. Back the screw off by hand and not by power tool, careful not to back off too much.
Pull on the exterior door handle and slide towards the rear of the vehicle.

If i have some time at work tomorrow Iíll see if its the same.

Thanks, I had the same question. Looks like that is the case. Jump to the 1:00 minute mark in this video to bypass the chuckleheads.

You'll have to remove the door panels to get to the yellow tabs that lock/hold the outer door handle in place, that's the most important thing I learned. And check your new door handles to see if the are hollow like the original ones. 😵 Mine were not.

This video shows the rear door better.

You will need a 30mm Torqx bit

Remove the door panel

These two tabs:

This one:

remove these 3 bolts and drop it down

Go in this way to take the 30mm torqx bit out. It is in a captive bracket so you don't have to worry about it falling out

Than you should be able to pull this piece out and the rest of the door handle.

Same?

Is this the same for all four doors?

No, the front doors are just a little different. Instead of going into to remove the both bolts from inside of door you do one from edge of door, otherwise they are the same. On the edge of the door you will see a small black grommet. Once you remove that (do not damage it as you will need to replace it), you will see the head of the bolt right there.

I just replaced all 4 door handles on my 2012 and it was very easy. I've had the door panels off many times so I can get them off and back on in a matter of minutes so this job was quick for me.
