    I need to replace my driver's side (both front and back) exterior broken door handles. Do I need to remove the interior door panels to do this?

    Found this for a 2003 Tiburon and am wondering if this will apply to my 2006 Tucson? ...

    RE : how do i replace door handle
    you need to take the door panel off after that you will see the plastic covering (sound deadening materiel) no pull the left corner of the plastic down make sure your window is up all the way look into the door were the door handle is and you should see 2 10mm bolts take those out then there are two rods that are connected to the handle and the door lock you want the rod thats connected to the door handle not the loock(its the rod that you can push down)you will see a clip on the rod push the clip to the left then just pull the rod back, not to hard though or you will bend it then you should just be able to pull it out

    Thanks for the write up.
    The only thing better would be to make a youtube video to help others.
