Tip & How-To about 2002 Kia Sedona

Door locked shut

My dad has a 2002 Kia Sedona since it was new. its been a great van but recently the drivers side door locked and would not unlock. to make a long story short we found a spring that was broken on the mechanism, replaced it and it works fine now. I made a video to explain the repair in much better detail than I can do hear.

-can someone tell me how to open the front passenger door on a 2002 Kia Sedona it's jammed I pulled the panel off and my pulled on the lock lever it's still not opening

My dad just had the same problem with his driver door. it turned out that a spring had broken in the lock assembly and we had to replace the spring. alternatively you could replace the entire assembly. look in the bottom of the door to make see if there is a small broken spring in the bottom. I just did a video on this so if you want to check it out it's on youtube at.
