I'm not sure what you mean... but if you mean the door handle mechanism... including the part inside the door you can't see... just explain to the parts person what it is you need.. they will know what it is. better yet if you are going to a junk/recycling/wrecking yard.... just ask the person to have a look at what it is you need.

The driver side door on my 2002 chevy blazer wont close.how do i fix it?


Door pins are a common failure on that series of Blazer/S10's. Also, another point of contention that the door faces is a sticky latch. Basically, the door latch re-latches itself and when you shut the door into the catch, it slams into it and bounces off. An easy fix is a 3 part cocktail of brake parts cleaner. Open and shut the latch with a screw driver acting as the catch and your interior door handle a few times. P'Blaster, open and shut the door a few times with the screwdriver acting as the catch. Finally, a good shot of white lithium grease. Open and shut the door with a screwdriver as the catch several times. Once you feel it is un-stuck, actually close and open the door several times. If you notice the door rising every time it catches, you MUST replace the door pins (cheap fix). If the door still has issues, replace the door latch (and since you're in there, do some PM and replace the actuator as well).

After a car accident the front passenger door on a 1996 Ford Taurus will not shut and will only stay "closed" when tied or bungied. I need to know if the entire door needs to be replaced or if it can be...


if there is damage to the door, I would go ahead and replace it, because it could either be the latch broke, or the door needs to be adjusted. If the latch is broken then it has to be replaced, if it just needs adjustment, then you could do that without replacing the door, although if you are going to go through the trouble you might as well replace it anyway.

MY DRIVERS SIDE DOOR WON'T SHUT... THINK THE LITTLE LATCH THING IS BROKE, HOW DO I REPAIR?


did you try lubing it with some lithium grease as most of the time, it's just something rubbing. If that doesn't work, 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. Then you'll need to pull off the seal in order to see inside the door. then loosen the bolts holding the latch assembly down and then disconnecting the rods connecting to the latch assembly and remove....

Rear door won't stay shut


Check the latch mechanism on the door. There is a piece of the latch that closes around the clasp on the door frame. sometimes this closes when the door is open and you can't shut the door. Take a screw driver and flip this latch piece open and close the door.

2002 FORD Explorer J that keeps the door shut broke


Are you sure the latch broke? sometime they can freeze up and hang unlatched. The part that latches the door to the striker is "C" shaped. If it is flipped into the latched position with the door open, it won't work. If this is the case, use a screwdriver and pry the latch to the open position while pulling the handle. But if it is broken, yes it can be replaced. Usually torx or allen screws in the end of the door. Pull the door panel off and pop the rods off before you unbolt it though!
