Question about 1987 Nissan Pickup
I have a 1991 Nissan d21 pickup. The other day the interior door handle stopped opening the door. I took the door panel off and shortened the wire running from the door handle to the latch mechanism. This allowed the latch to work. I then locked the door and now the door will not unlock either from inside or outside. Anybody have any ideas of what's wrong or how to find a schematic of that mechanism? I have a Chilton's service manual which is quite likely the most worthless piece of garbage I've ever seen.
There isn't a book or manual detailed enough to show you the inner workings of this lock mechanism. You will more than likely end up damaging the door panel and the mechanism to get the door open. You could go to a junk yard and get a used latch, see how it works, and then jimmy yours open. Or you could buy a new one and do the same thing. Either way the door panel has to come off with the door open and the latch will probably be damaged. There is a little spring that comes off or breaks in the latch and causes exactly what you are describing. There could be other issues as well but it definately needs the latch replaced.
