    Default '01 Suburban Door Handle Replacement

    Hello all!

    The other day the mother's truck was broken into by some piece of work.... They left the money right in the cup holder and didn't take anything but her lunch! Amazing. Luckily nothing major was done, just the drive side door handle was cracked with a screwdriver.

    I already received the replacement handle and I'm planning on changing it out tomorrow.

    The question I have is will I need to remove the inner door panel (and window motor) to access the door handle? Or is there a cutout in the inner panel that'll allow me access? I tried the search but couldn't turn up anything.

    If anyone has any advice or pictures that'd be extremely helpful.

    Nevermind, didn't realize these trucks don't have an inner door card. hehehehe

    Good to have it back together.
