Question about Cars & Trucks
The rear passenger door wont open from outside
Posted by Anonymous on
Or the linkage may need adjusting.
There are three linkages The main one going to the back of the door, the linkage from the inner handle to the mechanism at the front of the door and the one going from the outside handle to the mechanism. As far as I can tell only the last one has an adjustment. The linkage ends in a thread that fits into a clip (see photo). Just ease the thread out of the clip with a screwdriver and clip it back in in a different place so you take up the slack. This worked for me :-)
As to taking the door card off. There are three torx 20 screws, two along the bottom and one behind the ashtray. The window winder and inner handle trim just pull off, as does the slide-up-and-down locking knob which takes a good hard pull to get it off. Otherwise, just ping out the clips and lift upwards, though it doesn't just 'lift' as you have to fiddle it out from the trim at the front of the window which you don't have to take out. It might be easier if you did take it out but I could work out how to do that.

I seem to remember there is a particular way to get the window winder off but can't remember. Any help appreciated.

what you have to do is make sure door lock is in unlocked position put a flash light inside the door to see you need to get a screwdriver into the release spring area try to pry up on the hook area that flips over the piece thats mounted to the door jam it should release sounds like you need to spray wd or blaster in the lock assembly return spring not kicking back

It sounds like the linkage connecting the door handle to the latch has disengaged....you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. You can then pull off the weather seal in order to see the inside of the door....

i have not yet corrected the concern but have found the source. in this particular model the fuel door has a safety lock feature that keeps the door from opening when you are fill the fuel. I have found the lever broken on the switch now all i have to do is figure out how to replace it
