Question about 1990 Toyota Celica
Our 1990 Totota Celica passenger door manual lock will not unlock with the key or the button inside. Rolling down the window and looking down on the mechanisim (I sprayed it with WD40) the arms move but the lock does not unlock. I can't take apart the door as far as I know without opening it. Any suggestions?
Wow, sounds like fin. but you actually can take apart the door inside the car. it would be a b#$%(, but i'm not sure you have a choice. unscrew the handle in the appropriate places, remove plugs if you have to. the door is in with clips. you can remove the door cover by prying it away slowly with a long screw driver or nail bar. be careful, but also use force, it isn't easy and you might stop b/c you're afraid of breaking something, it sounds bad when they pop too, you might break the clips or the door panel, but that's the way of the world.
once you remove the door panel it will likely be obvious what the problem is. has the car ever been in a accident? have you shut the door on the belt alot?
hope this helps.
