SOURCE: kia sedona outside door handle replacement

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. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to remove the bolts securing the outer handle on

Door handle outside passenger wont open door . but it does open from the inside.


The outside door handle may be broken or may have become disconnected from the rod that allows the door to open. Sometimes the ther is a plastic clip that connects the rod to the door handle and could be broken any parts store will have replacement clips. Whatever the problem is, the door panel will have to be removed to be able to inspect the condition of the door handle and parts attaching to it.

The rear passenger door on 1993 lincoln contenental will not open neither from outside nor from inside but the pin goes up and down when operated by fob as well as unlock - lock button on the car


Ok this one is a tough one. If your handle on the outside does not work for some time, then the rod that attaches to the handle has most likely come loose. Your options are limited. I usually do not recommend the use of a slim jim. However in this case, a slim jim is an option. Inside your read door panel are three main rods. One rod moves the inside handle. The other rod moves the outside handle. The third rod is attached to the lock knob. Using the slim jim slide it into the door. Hook it onto one of the rods and pull up slightly. Try to see what is moving when you move the rod. If it is the inside handle or lock knob is moving, then find another rod that moves nothing. That will be the rod that should be attached to your outside handle. Lift up on that rod and it should open your door.
After you open the door, go ahead and take the time to fix your door, by removing the door panel and re-attaching the rod to the handle.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Replace left hand inside door handle


There should be 2 screws on the panel, one near the lower pocket and one holding the handle in. Remove both of them and with a flat head screwdriver, carefully begin prying the panel away from the door as you pull the panel toward yourself with the other hand. You just want to release the plastic door panel inserts from the edges and center of the panel. You can then disconnect any clips for power door locks, windows, etc. The rod is connected to the handle by a small clip at the base, release the clip and pull the rod vertically up and out of the handle. Remove and replace the handle and reverse the steps for installation. When you are ready to reinstall the door panel, line up the clips to the holes on the door and strike the panel with your hand using the base of your palm to secure the panel to the door.

How do you manually release the rear hatch in a 2003 kia sedona? The outside latch handle does not work anymore.


This happened to me, I removed the interior light fixture on the rear hatch and reached in to pull the connecting rod, this works for an one off opening, you will need to take the panel off once the hatch is open and repair your outer handle, our connection was broken at the handle which I repaired and it works great. Hope this helps.

My back door on my kia sedona will not open


The cable leading from the handle to the mechanism is stretched or if it has a rod it has come unhooked. Or it could be a bad mechanism or somthing caught in it from inside as if it fell down across the striker as the hatch was being closed.
