Default Rear sliding door handle change

The door handle on my rear passenger side door just snapped off. It is a mark 2 Sedona and the handle is attached ( or was) both top and bottom. I cannot see how to remove the old unit and fit the new one.

Has anyone got any step by step instructions on how to accomplish this?

Thanking you in advance.

You need to remove the interior panel of the door , then either remove or pull out of the way the blue plastic vapour shield to access the door handle from behind. You have to (from memory) remove 2 (maybe 3) rods from the plastic holders(you'll see what I mean when you look) then undo 2 or 3 bolts that hold the exterior handle on. Refit is reverse of this order. New ones are about £43 from Kia.

Hi,

Mines broke too. The small pin has snapped that the handle swivels on.

Any idea how much cost of new handle is? Or can I get pin separately?

Default Changing handle.

I changed mine this morning and a very easy job it was too.

The door card is held on by press studs on top and two screws below. The rearmost screw is just about impossible to get to as you can only access it with the door closed and it is directly opposite the frame of the seat so there is no room to get a screwdriver in.

However.............

If you pop off the top of the card and remove the front screw you can pull the card back far enough to remove the handle, I held it open with a screwdriver.

The handle assembly is held on with three screws easily accessible. Undo these and then unhook the rods. Be careful when you unhook as they are held into the reception holes by nylon clips which can fly off and get lost if you are not careful.

Replace the handle assembly, hook the rods on before inserting the screws, screw in and job done.

Replace card and go and have a well earned cup of tea.

Glad you managed to get ti done, as you have found it's one of those jobs that when you start is quite straight forward to do and you just need to apply common sense and before you know the jobs done.
