  • Anonymous Feb 05, 2009

    I have the same problem as well with a 92' Regal.  The car is falling apart. 

  • danrayhall May 11, 2010

    I have the same problem, when I reach inside the door after taking the inside panel off I can feel the linkage rod (I think) moving up and down when I use the outside handle or the inside handle. I'm I correct on this or is that something else I am feeling. It is hard to see in there.



    Thank you,

    I replaced mine with a new handle and hooked up the linkage rods but the handle does not move the rod down far enough to open the door. It's off by a small fraction and I can manually push it down just a tad and it opens. Is there an adjustment that I missed?

How do i remove the door panel on a 1998 buick regal front driver side.


  • In the door handle "finger well" remove the plastic cover with a screw driver.
  • Remove 2 screws (they may be torx or regular hex bolts).
  • Remove Philips screw from behind the inside door opener lever.
  • slightly and slowly, pull back on the plastic triangle that is on the back side of the outside rear view mirror. It will stay attached to the door panel, but you need to release the catch nipple from the door.
  • Now, pull out on the edges all around the bottom, front, and back of the door panel ( you may need a putty knife or something similar to get your fingers in and start pulling).
  • once the door is loose, lift up slowly on the door panel until it is free of the door (don't pull too hard or far as there are still 3 wire bundles attached).
  • Unclip the door light plug on the back and the locks and windows switch plugs towards the front.
  • Reverse for install.

Cild lock location on 92 buick regal


Is there not and little lock thing on each of the rear doors that you can change so the door can't be opened from the inside? You can usually find it when you open the door near the latch plate. Hope this is of some help.

I have a '93 Buick Regal Custom. Last year I was unable to open the passengers door from the outside, I can open from the inside but not outside. I lived with it until now. The drivers door is doing the...


I have this problem every year with my car, 1993 buick regal custom, 3.8. What happens is it gets cold, warms up a bit, and ice or snow melts and gets in the door, then it gets cold again and it freezes. I go to unlock and open the door from the outside and this problem arises.

There is a vertical rod on the left side of the drivers side, right side of the passenger side, that gets bent, from trying to open the door when that mechanism is frozen up. Just bend it back, a TINY bit and it will start working.

I got tired of taking my door apart every time it happened so i cut a little "door" in the cover thing, so i can get at that bar.

I also tried coating it in grease and that seems to lessen the frequency.

1994 regal custom door


R/F door trim will have to be removed. Most likely you will find linkage disconnected from the inside latch of the outside door handle. You might even find a broken piece of the door handle requiring replacement

93 buick adjusted door handle now won't open in or outside


let down the window, take a chain with a hook on it ,hook it on to the  handle and if your strong enough pull the chain hard and hold it from the inside and once again if your strong enough turn around and give it a bruce lee with boots on. be careful to put a few towels between the chain and the finish you don't want to wear the solution afterward.
