Door is loked on rear driver side want open


Won't open from outside? Won't open from inside? Equipped with power door locks? IF so, and won't open inside/outside, suspect stuck power door lock actuator. Sometimes working the lock/unlock button will make the door unlock. If not, the door will require disassembly from inside to determine what the failure may be. If the door needs disassembly while in the closed position, the paneling/clips may get damaged FYI

Hi there, My 95 Chev Suburban K1500 driver and passenger doors will not open from the inside when the doors are are either locked or unlocked. Obviously I am only concerned about them not opening when...


Inside of the door there are rods that connect from your inside door handles to the the latch mechanism. The rods are connected to both the handle and the latch with plastic clips. To check you will have to remove the door panels and see if the rods are attached or if the plastic clips are broken or missing. The clips are a very cheap part to replace. Any local auto parts store should have them in stock. Also very easy to install. Hope this helps. Happy motoring.

Changing rear door latch handle


Take the plastic cover off from the inside. Fairly easy, a few bolts and some plastic clips holding it on. You may be able to open it from the outside but you'll have to take the inside cover off to replace the handle anyway. This is a common problem and if you need more detailed instructions just do a search on the net.

The lock on my front driver door will not unlock with power locks the rest the door will not even open when i attempt to open from the inside i tried unlocking it with the key but it made a sounds like...


You will need to remove the inside door trim panel and check the three (3) rods and plastic connectors that connect:
(a) the inside door handle to the door mechanism
(b) the inside door lock knob/outside key lock cylinder to the door mechanism
(c) the outside door handle to door mechanism.

Most likely one (or more) of these rods have either become loose or the plastic lock clips have broken.
The "L" end of the rod goes thru the hole of the clip and the clip has a pivoting "U" shape that goes over and locks onto the rod.
Based on the your year (2000) it might be a good idea to remove all clips and rods; and remove the entire door mechanism. Inspect, clean, lubricate, and re-install it.

the easiest way to get the door panel off with doors closed with too much trouble is to remove the rear seat bottom to give you room to work. sounds like the rods for the latch have come loose they have a plastic clip that holds them in place in the door

Passenger side rear door will not open from the inside or outside. I don't know how to fix get it open let alone fix it.


could be the door lock arm has come off the lever inside the door, It will be hard but if you can remove the door trim from the door by removing the armrest and handle and going round the perimeter of the trim levering the trim from the door with a flat blade or even a screwdriver to pop the clips out of there plastic retainers and remove the trim it will give you access to the inside of the door once you cut through the plastic weather seals over the large openings in the door.
You may be able to see the problem then which I think will be the door lock arm in the door has come out, that is all it will take to stop it from opening

try switching off the child lock. but if it doesn't work your guess might be right. usually the door handls are plastics, easily breaks when forced. just try prying of one of the edge of the door panel and try to peep through just to be sure.
