S 10 extended cab 3rd door

Hi all!

I have a extended cab S-10, and the door handle for the third door is broken. I have the new handle, but when I pulled off the face-plate, it looked pretty complicated. Can anyone give me a little advice on how to change this part out?

Thanks in advance!

How do you replace the third door handle on a 2003 S10 extended cab so that the new one won't break? I'm on the 4th one!

For anyone with a rusted/stuck bottom latch on the the 3rd door - A) the handle is not broken, B) you have the the door panel off, and C) and you can see the latch release working, spray the latch with lots of WD40, wait a bit, then hold the release open and just kick the damn door from the inside.

LEB: If you are talking about an x-cab, all you need is a T-47 torx bit. I suggest one embedded in a socket (got mine at NAPA - you won't find anything bigger that T-40 at hardware stores). Use the T-47 to unscrew the seat belts, then just pull off the panel. It's held by clips.

Mike K: Search the net. Seems like everyone who owns an S10 has the problem.

Now I just gotta find a new latch.

Second door handle for me, only because when they break I'm too cheap to get it fixed so I just leave it broke for a few years. Because of this no more GM products for me. GM needs to man up and recall these cracker jack handles.

Well, you just need a local mechanic expert to do the replacement procedures for you man. It is really a complicated procedure..

i have a '03 Sonoma, i have had the same broken door handle issues in the concern now is that the whole bottom of the 3rd door seems to be rusting out, are there weather seal issues that have been addressed anywhere? I'd like to fix the paint and metal but not if it's just going to rot out again, any thoughts?

**/**/** **:**

I am wondering where I can buy a replacement door latch for my s10. It is the upper metal loop that the door locks into. Not sure if you can weld it easily, think it may be alluminum.

OK- I have now bought and installed my aluminum third door handle after the original plastic one broke!

Now we cant get the bottom latch to release.

Has anyone actually got the third door open?

My husband and I have tried pretty much everything we could think of, short of cutting the bottom latch off somehow.

Having issues getting the third door to unlatch from the bottom after replacing the handle.

Lean against outside of door, pushing hard, then pull on handle: as per sometimes the door is not closed all the way, and it will not open until you do this!

Thanks, Frank at my Chevy dealer for the advice!

Hope this helps some of you!

I have a 2002 s10 extended cab pickup with a broken driver side seat bracket. 60/40 seats. I'm having trouble finding a replacement! Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thank author of this post/comment"broke 3rd door handle"

ebay store amautoparts has the handle for around 13 bux , i replaced mine without taking the door panel off, it can all be done through the hole

just install the new clips that come in the kit. i just put inward pressure on the door when i pull the latch to open the door , and have had no more problems. so if you feel resistance when you pull the lever, try pushing in on the door first the pull the lever and open the door
