Any ideas on the cost to replace a door handle on a 1995 Toyota Camry?

Parts aren't going to be cheap, neither is labor.. so at least $200

I was able to glue/screw mine back together again. Was a challenge to get it off, but very easy to reinstall.

Seems a lot of Toyota handles break. My tailgate snapped, too. Instructions are online.

I did one on a 2000 Camry a couple of months ago. I do not recommend a used one, since I think it's a factory defect and they will all break. That and the one from the rear door or passenger door isn't compatible either. I found someone on eBay who was selling door handles. They did not have the color I wanted for sale on eBay so I asked if they could get it. I ended up emailing them the color code off of the car, and waiting probably 2 months (special order to get the right color) but when I did get it, it was the right part and the color match was really good, so it was worth the wait. I forget how much it cost, but $45 comes to mind.

The new door handle uses regular (metric) bolts vs the version that came with the car that uses wood screws.

I.E. - old one:


New one uses these:


Since I keep metric bolts handy it wasn't a problem, but other than that installing it was easy enough. I found instructions on how to remove the door panel on the internet.

I had to replace the door handle on 1997 Hyundai Accent. I bought the part through http://www.trainparts.com. I don't remember the price but it was significantly cheaper than getting one from the dealer.

I then had an auto collision shop install it as I couldn't figure out how to take my door apart. They charge me maybe $60.

You could also have the auot collision shop do everything including getting the part but it may cost more than buying it yourself. Good luck!

It seems this is a common problem with Camry's. We had to replace the door handle on our sons 96.
We got a new one from a place that specializes in Toyota parts that is located near the border. I can look for the name if it will help wince I know they do mail order.
I am not positive about what we paid but I am positive it was well under 50.
My son was able to replace the handle himself and he is definitely not a mechanic
