Question about 2000 Lincoln LS
Driver door does not open from the inside, u say you can advise on how to repair. i will order the part but before i do i would like to know how to fix it to be sure i can do it myself.
I found that you can open the door when the latch is broken by pulling on the lock with one hand and the latch with the other simultaneously. You can actually get away with not replacing the latch until the lock breaks!

I just went thru this on my 2002. The silver handle is actually plastic (I didn't previosly realize this) and had broken in such a way that it no longer applied leverage to the door mechanism. Everything still worked fine from the outside.
I got a new handle from the dealer (is one complete piece) for about $70. and took the door apart (much more difficult than it sounds).3 or 4 screws across the bottom - 2 in the flip up portion of door handhold and 1 straight behind the handle itself. Lots of plastic pop locks holding door in place - need to be pulled straight out vice normal slide up - proceed slow - very easy to break plastic pieces. Replacing handle requires you to drill out three rivets and replace them for holding new door handle in place.
Can do in about 1 hr with help and all the necessary tools - flat pry bar, screwdrivers, cordless drill, etc.
