To remove the inside door panel, you do NOT need to pry with a screwdriver! Look closely at the plastic rivets... and you will notice a small round "bulls-eye" in the middle of each rivet. Use any small tool to press this center part in. Once the center is pressed in, the entire rivet can be removed by hand. To re-use the rivet, first pull the center part out.

Remove the inside door panel by gently prying with a large regular screwdriver or pry bar. There are the usual plastic "rivets" that hold this into place. Inside, you will see a plastic moisture barrier. Gently peel this back to reveal the cheesiest door handle assembly in the known universe. The link for the handle is fragile and barely several hair widths in diameter. You'll want to lubricate this generously and after letting it soak, rock it back and forth to work it in. These are prone to rust so be GENTLE. Also, if you ever need to replace the rear license plate lights, this is the way to do it, in addition to removing several phillips screws that hold the handle into place. Not an easy task but with a little forebearance you can manage it well. Just snap everything back into place when you're done and call it a day. Good luck!

Yes I did it, followed instructions to take back panel off door of tracker, then lubricated the latch system which i could see how it operated with panel off. It now works and i successfully put panel back on. Thank you so much for sharing this information. Saved me a lot of time, headache and money, and I had no experience.

SOURCE: Driver side door lock seems mechanically "stuck"

The panel pops off. There are cheap tools to help with this at your local AutoZone. You may be able to just pull them off, you will need new clips which are just a couple of dollars or else your panels will be loose when you put them on. There maybe a screw or 2 that will be hiding and you will find them as your taking the panel off, start at the bottom. As for your original problem I would say the linkage is binding up some where and needs a bit of grease. Hope this helps. Richard

I have a 04 monte carlo and the door latches are both stuck so i can not shut either door. how do i fix this?


Grab the handle and open it, as you are holding it open take a screwdriver and release the latch on the door jam. It releases in a counter clock wise motion On the drivers side and opposite on the passenger side.

Window is stuck down


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you can readjust the window mechanics. It sounds like either the cable is disconnected, or your motor may be bad.

My one door lock button is stuck down and others simply don't wor


You may need to remove your door panels (screws are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door) and then peel back the weather film on each door to see what could be causing the issues.. rusted wires, loose connection, broken linkages, seized linkages. I'm not sure what to do with your car since each door seems to be having a different issue, but I would check the locking mechanisms..

I HAVE A 1996 MERCURY VILLAGER AND YESTERDAY THE BACK HATCH WOULD'T OPEN. IT'S LIKE IT 'S CAUGHT ON SOMETHING


The handle may be stuck in the open position due to rust. Try to push back the handle and play (open/close/open) with the lock control. The same thing will eventually happen to the sliding door, and the culprit is the inside handle, stuck in the open position, preventing the door to close completely. Good luck.
