SOURCE: DOOR WON'T OPEN FROM INSIDE OF NISSAN ALTIMA 2002 ON DRIVER'S SIDE

There is a cable that attaches to the inside door latch release handle. The plastic that retains this cable is most likely broken. I have seen this before. If the retainer is not holding the cable sheath correctly, the entire cable moves when the handle is pulled and does not release the door latch.

Remove the door panel and inspect this cable. You will see 2 cables (one is for the door lock). If the plastic is broken, you will need a new interior handle assembly.

Hope this is helpful!!

SOURCE: 2002 Nissan Altima Exterior Door Handle

I seriously doubt that supergluing or even epoxying a handle back will hold at all, or hold for more then few days.
I would only suggest doing the replacement yourself if you familiar with this type of work, or has the aptitude to figure out how to do it, and have the right tools because it is NOT trivial and a number of things can be done wrong, broken or scratched.
The handle itself cannot be replaced. The outside door handle assembly (which includes the handle, the bezel with all associated springs, plastic and metal hardware) has to be replaced. Besides junkyards, which is a long shot for number of reasons, the only place where the handle assembly can be bought is the dealer. And these handle assemblies are not cheap ether. The driver side handle on my 2002 Altima broke first. I paid $60.23+tax, and they had to order it. BEFORE anyone goes to the dealer I suggest to call first, and ask them if they have it in stock. Since door handles are sold painted they will ask you for your car's VIN number so that they match the paint color.
After you pick it up, the replacement will take about an hour (if you know what you doing). The inside door panel has to be removed, it is held in place by the inside door handle and the panel is attached by a number of clips, the handle assembly is attached to the door by three bolts, to remove which you will need a socket with extension. You will also need a good flashlight so you see what you are doing.
If you are familiar how to do this type of work and plan to keep the car for a while I strongly suggest buying a factory service manual on a CD (I bought mine on eBay for under $10). It is worth its price 1000s of times over, and makes almost ALL repair work SOOO much easier.751424a.jpg73e3811.jpgd240851.jpg

SOURCE: 2002 nissan altima se door wont open changed

There is a rod or cable that attaches to the door latch. I would think that this rod or cable has came unhooked out of the door latch. It will be in the back of the door, behind the door panel. Most likely this is the problem.

My passenger rear door on my 2005 nissan altima will not open from inside or outside


It's not the handles I've struggled with these issues on 3 altimas it's the door latch itself it's from moisture it's worse in the winter if I run the car for a couple hours with heat on the door opens also if you repeatedly lock and unlock the door with the power lock it will release eventually. I've been locked in my 04 Altima multiple times and had to lock the door sometimes to get it to hold shut these cars are nutorious for door issues

My 2002 nissan altima door handle snapped off in the cold. What is the best option to replace it. Can it be glued back on or does it need to be fully replaces?


Glue will not be able to hold on a door handle. Too much pressure is required to open the door and the handle will only break off again if you try to glue it back on. Replace the entire handle assembly.
