SOURCE: 1997 ford explorer rear driver side door won't open

Pull the panel off starting at the top, you can just pry the window control apart, you don't need to unscrew that part. I sprayed white grease (lubriplate) all around the door latch inside there, and it unlatched easy.
After I put it back together, the knob still doesn't rise as high as the other side. I think the linkage is binding, and the connecting rod is bent. At least if the door won't unlock with the button you can do it by hand.

SOURCE: How to replace '96 Ford Explorer driver side exterior door handle

You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.

How do I get my rear hatch door open,when you can't open it from the outside?


You can get it open in two ways: By using your key fob and remotely opening latch or by pulling inside panel on rear hatch and manually pulling lever to get latch to release. Most times when you cant get rear hatch to open normally is because cable from outside release handle to latch broke. Have cable and release mechanism inspected and replace worn or broken parts as needed.

2000 ford f 150 supercab back door on drivers side will not open


The cable runs from the latch to the handle, it sounds like the cable broke off one end or fell off,

this truck uses cables instead of metal rods to open the latch, remove the door panel and see if the cable fell off handle area or latch,,
the cable operates the inside door handle and sometimes the outside handle but very rare that it operates the out side handle to open door.

The interior door handle on the driver's side of my 2000 Tundra does not open the door. The exterior door handle works fine. I would assume the cable has broken on the door latch portion. What is the...


remove the screws that fasten the interior door panel to the door.  Visually inspect the handle assembly. there will be two cables that connect the handle and lock button to the door lock assembly.  I would bet that the L-shaped end of the interior door handle cable broke.  The replacement is self explanatory for the handle. Google the door lock assembly which isn't as visable.  Bob

Driver side door handle doesn't work anymore!!


Either the cable/cable end has broken or the handle has broken where the cable slides in and pivots. I believe you do have a cable system in that door but if it is a rod system it would be something similar.

You must either remove the handle from the door card or remove the door card itself to see exactly whats gone wrong. Unless something has just fallen apart, you will more than likely need to buy a handle or cable. Good luck

Both manual sliding doors on my Toyota Sienna will not open


If you can remove the inner door panel you will see a maze of cables running to the various locking points on the sliding door. If the cable going to the FRONT latch on the sliding door is broken (or in my case, simply dislodged inside the door) the door acts as if it is frozen shut.

The front cable is short, and easily replaced even by a newbie mechanic.
