Question about 1992 Mazda MX-5
Drivers door handle will not open from outside without a lot of effort. If I use the inner door handle opens fine. Locking mechanism is working fine, its just the silver exterior handle will not open door without trying for four to five times. Have lubricated as much of the locking mechanism without taking of the interior door panel [its glued on]. The silver exterior handle is sloppy compared to the passengers side. Any suggestions? Thanks Paul from NZ.
You will have to take the panel off to see why the inner lock/activator isnt working properly, besides youll have to take it off to fix it anyway.Maybe as simple as a bent handle to lock rod being bent and no longer long enough to activate lock correctly.youll just have to look and see.Let me know what you find

If the drivers door on your 2004 Mazda 6 does not open from the inside or the outside then chances are the lock/latch assembly is jammed or you might need to replace it. In order to get the door open the inside door trim will most likely need to be at least partially removed to access the inner workings of the door. This is no easy task as the panel is designed to be removed with the door open. If care and patience are used this can generally be done without major damage to the inside door trim panel.
