SOURCE: driver door

The rods in the drivers door probably came off.
Somehow you got to take the door panel off from the inside and look.

SOURCE: 1997 Jetta Drivers side door will not open.

One thing... If your last 3 doors works fine it's mean that problem is only in your drivers side. In VW like nickalxjoe wrote is air pump. So there might be an air leaking which you can hear. So if you can hear from where air running out try to fix this first.

SOURCE: drivers door won't open from inside vehicle

you may have a broken inside handle, open the door, remove screws holding door panel on,then pry door panel off, it has plastic retainers that hold panel on they pry off and pop back when installing panel, once the panel is off you will see if the rod just came off or if handle broke if its the handle replace it remove screww holding it and install new one, some are held with revits, drill revit to remove,use screws to reinstall. hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a '93 Buick Regal Custom. Last year I was

I have this problem every year with my car, 1993 buick regal custom, 3.8. What happens is it gets cold, warms up a bit, and ice or snow melts and gets in the door, then it gets cold again and it freezes. I go to unlock and open the door from the outside and this problem arises.

There is a vertical rod on the left side of the drivers side, right side of the passenger side, that gets bent, from trying to open the door when that mechanism is frozen up. Just bend it back, a TINY bit and it will start working.

I got tired of taking my door apart every time it happened so i cut a little "door" in the cover thing, so i can get at that bar.

I also tried coating it in grease and that seems to lessen the frequency.

SOURCE: The drivers door will not open from the inside.

Linkage has become detached. You'll have to pull the door panel. There are steel rods (linkage) that are held in place by a PLASTIC CLIPs (GM's better idea)... The clips break or come loose. Replacements are available at GM dealership but you'll need to figure out which one is bad. Take the old piece (or pieces) along with you so you can make sure you are getting the right ones. The interior handle and the exterior handle are on two seperate mechanisms which is why the inside doesn;t work yet the outside does. Hope this helps. Good Luck. If you need help figuring out How-To remove the door panle, a trip to your local public library in the Automotive books section should help and show you how the panel pulls off. A panel removal tool is a big help and is available at most Auto Stores. You make end up breaking someof the plastic clips that hold the panel in place but they are available at an Auto Store also.

2007 pontiac G5 door assembly


The lock may be stuck in locked position in the latch assembly.
Roll the window down,reach inside the door and move the lock button to unlock JUST as you give the door a severe whack with a rubber hammer at the outside door edge 1/2 way down the door at the door latch area.
It may take more than one try to unlock the door,if that's what is wrong,but usually is.

Why wont the rear door open on my 2009 gmc acadia


from inside or outside ? if won't open from inside your child safety lock is probably tripped. if won't open from outside you probably have a lock rod that popped off inside the door, in which I would have the dealer fix it, it involves taking door pad off and when you can't open door to take pad off ,most of the time it damages it.

The inside door handle won't open door from inside outside door works fine it's on drivers side 2006 ford fusion selv6


It sounds like the connecting rod popped out of its plastic connector. Pull the door panel off and check both ends of the rod. It must be unhooked at one end or the other.

2005 pontiac montana drivers door wont lock with remote but will lock from inside switch or with key on outside...it WILL unlock with remote as well as all other doors...


put your ear to the door and try to open it with the remote, if you hear it trying to open, then most likely you door lock actuator is bad and needs replacement. It may have disconnected itself from the door lock lever as well, but i suggest opening up the door panel to better ***** the situation. It all points to the actuator.

DRIVERS FRONT DOOR CAN'T OPEN FROM IN OR OUTSIDE


There is a rod inside the door that connects the inside and outside door handles to the latch mechanism, if it gets bent or broke it won't activate the latch. The inside door panel will have to be removed and parts of the mechanism also to reinstall. Would recommend maybe taking somewhere unless it's an old BWM.

Outside handle on 1997 Toyota Avalon will not open door


Since you can get the door open, half the battle is already won. Yes, open the door, pull the interior door panel and take a look around. Watch inside with a flashlight (towards the rear of the door) as you roll the window down to see if you can see what it's snagged on.
