My drivers side door will not open. Cannot remove panel. How do I remove the panel withou opening the door for 1998 Honda Accord


Had the same problem happen to me on a rear door. A mechanic lowered the window, and managed to "fish" the metal rod that goes from the outside handle down to the locking mechanism. Usually, this rod becomes dislodged at the top end, where it meets the outside and inside handle rods, disabling both. If it became dislodged at the bottom, where it meets the locking mechanism, then this procedure will not work. Much of the front door panel can be disassembled with the door closed. And maybe, just maybe, if you take out the window switches sub panel from the door panel, you will be able to look for and reach the rod actuator. This subpanel (black plastic) is held by just two screws at the bottom, hidden with a plastic top, that you have to pry out to reach the screw itself.

I can't open my drivers side door to my 03' X5 3.0. When using keyless entry the other 3 drs open but the driver stays locked also manually tried inserting the key in the door and lifting the handle, but...


sounds to me as if the vacuum or electric actuator is either non -functional or linkage is hung up, loose, or stuck, maybe just needs lubrication or loose wire/hose. Open the door panel and do a visual check on its operation; the fact that your handle will not operate the door tells me that the linkage has fallen off or come loose... add to your question with a reply if this does not help you...MK

It sounds like the linkage connecting to the lock has either disengaged, broken, or seized up. If you can get the door open, 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. You'll need to pull back the weather seal to see all the rods and connectors and hopefully will be able to see the issue
