Question 2 door panel questions

just a couple of quick things that have been anoying me, truck is an '00 regular cab xlt with power windows & locks.

1st thing: the door pull handels rattle and are noticably loose. i jammed a peice of paper in between the handle to quiet it up, but wanted to know, is there any way to tighten them up from behind the door panel?

and 2nd thing: my drivers side door arm rest has what feels like a gaping hole under the vinyl cover, right where my elbow sits. more of an annoyance than anything serious, but is there any way i can replace just the armrest and not the entire door panel?

any help is greatly appreciated!

not sure on the first question, however I know you can replace just the armrest. You take the whole door panel off and I think theirs either 4 or 6 phillips screws holding it on.

remove the 2 screws beneath the handle, pop the handle bezel off, flip it over and there are 2 screws holding the pull handle on each end and tighten them.

As far as removing the armrest, take a look at this thread

Oh, and I have a spare set of armrests too if you need them

2 clips hold it on, just pull it by the left and right sides there is 2 clips on top and 1 on the outer edge. They are tough, just dont rip it off like a barbarian and you'll be golden!
