Question about Cars & Trucks

I have a 2002 Nissan Altma and had to replace the Passenger side door handle. The problem i have is the connecting rod to door handle fell down in the door and i did not see how it was connected at th

How outside doorhandle on the passenger side is installed. Mainly i need to know how the rod connected to the handles bottom side is connected and if there is a plastic connector that is missing that holds the rod in place? The rod seems to be in the right place but just moves up and down without doing anything ontop of the lock there is a blue clip with a hole in it and the rod just slides up and down threw it. Is there suppose to be a connector that clips on the bottom like the top of the rod to the handle?

    I figured out how my inside doorhandle works. By taking off the metal panel underneath the plastic panel. Having that off i pulled the cable back and forth to see how it unlocks the door from the inside . From there i seen how the rod is supposed to push down the blue clip to open the outside handle. So since the rod was bent out of its original shape it was not pushing the blue clip far enough to open the door from the outside. I took the rod back out of the center of the blue clip area and made a sleeve to fit over the bottom of the rod and put the rod back in its place threw the blue clip and the sleeve helped push down the blue clip to open the door from the outside also. Problem fixed

Difficult to put in words so my best advice is go to Nissan Parts dept and ask them to print you an exploded diagram of the internal door mech parts as you may need to order some clips etc... most parts guys will do this.
The diagram will make the job easy for you

SOURCE: 01 LS power window cable clips failed, window fell into the door

I've replaced 3 of the 4 window regulators on my 2001 Lincoln LS. It's a better idea to replace the whole regulator assembly then to repair one that is worn out or broken. It saves a lot of time and money in the long run. Look on the big online auction for a replacement. Be sure to check the sellers feedback score, and the price of shipping. I've bought all 3 of mine that way and haven't had any problems. Good Luck!

How to open the door on a 2004 altima if both of my handles dont work


There are f few ways. Bust the plastic handle off the outside . Make sure the door is not locked. If you can get inside the door this way and see a rod near the door handle. Push up and down [ usually down ] on this, door should open . OR Roll the window down. Pry up on the inner door panel by the rubber piece that clears your window. This piece should be able to pry up, enough to see the same rod I am talking about.Usually, these rods push down to open the door. #3 Roll up window, put a small wedge between the window and the door by the door handle. This should get the gap open enough to look down inside the door. Look for this same rod, near the door handle, and push down on it to open the door. replace Hope I was helpful please rate this solution

Drivers door won't open using outside latch.


The rod connecting the outside latch handle to the latch catch is disconnected. Someone will need to take the door panel off and repair the connection rod. It was a broken plastic connector that joined the rods on my 2003 Kia Optima that caused the problem.
