Linkage has come off inside the door. You must remove the inner door panel and reattach or replace if broken.

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

Go to and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.

1993 Ford f150, driver's side door catches on the front finder when you try to open it

Fender needs adjusted. Loosen the bolts on top, pry the fender forward, hold it there and tighten the bolts. There should be about 1/4 inch gap between the fender and door.

Front passenger Door stuck on 2003 Hyundai Sonata.

Probably you got "dinged" and it drove the passenger side fender into the door. No space between door edge and Fender edge.
You may be able to pry the fender out so the door edge can "sneek" under the fender edge. If it wasn't a bad collision, the Paintless body people may be able to help you out. Stop by and let them take a look and give you an estimate.

How too remoove driver side fender 2005 envoy

once you have removed the headlight assembly and remove the bolt behind the headlight assembly, continue locating the 10mm bolts attaching the fender along the top side, along the bottom in front and behind of the tire, open the drivers side front door, look into the opening between the door hinges and with a flashlight and a long extension on your ratchet you will then remove the two bolts between the fender and door, one on top and one at the bottom. you also have to remove the retaining bolts that attach the inner fender liner to the fender.

My drivers side door hits the left front end panel when I begin to open it causing the panel to begin to bend in

Somebody has had a small front left corner accident, throwing off the door position or moving the fender back a bit into the door's arc of movement. You will have to take it to a dealer and have the door re-aligned and/or the fender adjusted. This is not an owner serviceable item.

Driver door rubs against fender, will not allow door to open and close properly . Its wear the skirt of the driver door exterior. Truck is a 2007 ss silverado

sounds like one of the door hinges may need to be adjusted or worn enough to either re-align the door or replace a hinge pin providing the fender hasn`t been hit or become mis-adjusted.

A neighboring car pushed a shopping card into the rear portion of the front drivers side quater panel -- that 6 to 8 inch portion behind the wheel-well. It's pushed in up to 1 1/2 inches max and 8 -10...

you can try removing the quarterpanell,& straightening it,but you are better off getting the offending neighbour to pay a body-shop to fix it Taking the door off is very involved &you will have to re-attach it, (not easy)

Driver side door making a popping noise when opening or closing. Lubed the hinge but it kind of sounds like it's coming from inside the panel

Check spacing between the front of the door and the
fender. The door could be pinching the fender when you open and close it. Hope this helps.

My left door and fender are banging together

Sounds like you have a body alignment problem. If you have the door open try to lift up on the bottom edge of the door. You should not have much play.

If you do have play you need a door hinge. It is also possible that you hit or were hit in the front and the front fender was slid back towards the door. There are shims in the joints and some of the shims could have moved or fallen out.

This is simple body shop work.

2001 door adjustment

you might check to see if the hinges are worn out.
Grab the rear of the door and lift up. otherwise, it sounds like the window frame needs to be bent in.
When i worked In the body shop we would sit in the seat with door slightly open, put our knee againts the rear of the door, grab it at the top and pull in real hard untill the window frame bends in.
