the whole doorhandle on my 95 pops out when im opening the door. I was told its held in by a few screws. How hard is it to take the door off and tighten them, anyone had this problem?

I'm not sure what is broken without seeing it, but you need to pull off the interior door panel trim to see it. It's held on by nuts. Either the nuts are missing or loose.

Either that or you need a new handle.

yeah I figured but is the door panel hard to take off?

Panels with power window are easier. Manual windows will need the $5 crank removal tool from car audio shop to prevent scratching. Other than that it's just popping out parts and uncrewing.

It's really easy. It just takes time so you don't scratch/break things, but if you're asking maybe you should let a mechanic do it.

Well mechanics scratch stuff up to and whenever I let someone else do work on my car they try to screw me over. I'll just go very slow and be careful, Ive done 95% of the work on all my cars but ive never had a car I respected so much and wanted to keep looking so good. wish me luck
