Stuck door latch 98 K1500

I have a 98 Chevy K1500 Pickup. Both handles on the driver's door broke yesterday. Was able to get the door open to replace them but when I shut the door to test the operation of them the door would not open with either handle.

Never shut the door to test and always remove ign key as sometimes door lock automaticly,as to why doors will not open did you refit the connection from handle to the lock little metal rod with a plastic clip to hold it on ??assuming it has one as i have never seen a chevrolet only an astro van here in spain .to test without shutting door use a screwdriver to close the mechanism .sorry i couldnt be more helpful

How to open a stuck door on 96 chevy 1500


A mechanics worst nightmare. You have to somehow remove the door trim on the inside to get to the latch and lock mechanisms to release them manually to open the door. Hard to explain but thats basically the idea. Keep in mind that there are probably plenty of replacement door trims in the junkyard so don't be afraid to damage the one you have to gain access.

The driver side door lock broke on my 98 jetta door want open


according to my partsman (who has had great advice for many years), you do not have to remove the door panel to replace the door handle which contains the cylinder lock. the handle is released with a screw which you can see when you open the door. you will need a starhead screwdriver or socket. A new handle costs around $40 at a parts store in my area. call around for a locksmith who will re-key your key to the new lock or use the key which comes with the new lock, your choice. i am in dealing with this also

The handle mechanism wears over time. I went on eBay, bought a color matching handle for under $20 and replaced it myself. You have to be careful when removing the plastic panel bezel that surrounds the handle, drill out two rivets and your door will open like new!
