SOURCE: how do i remove interior door panel & trim

Answer There is a small black plastic piece that surrounds your door handle. You MUST take that off, I find a small flat tip screw driver works best. The plastic cover that goes on the inside part of the door where your mirror is should be removed, makes it a lot easier to remove door trim: No screws on that part just grab from both sides and pull. 3 screws on bottom and 1 screw inside the armrest. The window crank, easiest way tried and true, shoestring, pull handle towards inside of car until you have enough room to fit the shoestring between crank and plastic washer. Give it a pull back and forth and it'll pop right off; clip should stick to shoestring as an added bonus.

SOURCE: 1997 Lexus front door will not open from outside

unless you are mechanically inclinde don't mess with it get someoen you love and adore to do it for you, you can break the tabs that hold the door on and it can get expensive the worst part is it might not open at all if you don't understand how to operate it unless you have one of the experts here helping you with it step by step, but could take as much as 4 hours depending on your ability to work with your hands. Some people just don't need to own wrenchs they are a danger to themselves and the public at large, not saying they are not smart but just don't have the know how and motor skills. I am telling you this so you won't have a headache on your hands.

SOURCE: Front driver door won't open from the inside only

The linkage is probably broken or snapped out of place from inside the door panel.
You'll feel that the handle is much easier to move than the other doors.

If you are confident and able, take the door apart removing the screws and snap pieces and look for the missing linkage. It's usually a snap piece that holds a rod in place on the back of the handle. They break all the time, or dry rot, or jarr out of place. They're easily available at your local auto parts place or even dealership for just a few bucks!

Good luck!

SOURCE: jaguar xj8. 1999. front passenger door will not

More than likely the door handle assembly is broken. The chrome handle has a pin running through it and through 2 "ears" of a plastic part that creats a pivit point for the handle. One of the plastic ears (probably the bottom one) has broken loose. Glueing it will not hold long if at all. The accepted repair is to replace the handle assembly which consists of a Plastic mounting block of which the "ears" are part, a chrome handle, and a pivot pin. You can buy this assembly used on Ebay at this time (August 2010) for between fifty and seventy dollars including shipping, but you are buying a seven to twelve year old part out of a junked car with the same inherrent weakness as your broken one had. How long the part will last is anyone's guess. My guess is "not long". You can buy a new one that will probably last as long as the original one did, or you can repair the part by fabricating a metal replacement "ear" and attaching it to the Plastic part with very small screws or nuts and bolts as I did. To perform either repair you must remove the inside door panel. In the plastic handle recess there is a small circular plug that can be removed with a thin pointed tool. It reveals a phillips screw that must be removed. Remove the plastic recess part. There is another long screw on the underside of the armrest/handle. With these removed there a number of male to female plastic plugs that can be seperated with a dedicated tool or a flat tool like a common screw driver. Insert tool between the door trim panel and the door at each plug and pry the panel from the door a half inch or so. With all the plugs seperated wiggle and carefully lift the panel over the verticle locking stud because there are 3 wires that must be un plugged. After unpluging the wires, put the panel aside in a safe place. The handle assembly is removed by sliding it toward the front of the car and then removing the cable. Repair or replace the assembly and reassemble in reverse order. Good luck.

02 jaguar xtype how to manually open doors if handle is broken


Hi

if the door is locked and wont open from the inside or outside then you have to remove the interior door trim, this can be tricky as the seat is in the way, you can often just remove al the top brackets holding the door trim on and get your hand down inside the door to pull the metal bar than opens the door.

Do you need a step by step guide? you can do this your self, quite an easy job just takes a little patience.

Regards

How to replace door handle on passager front side


Remove the interior door trim - Remove inner handle surround, slide out wood, remove screws including the one hiding under the rubber air trunking. Remove small middle section (inside pull-handle) to reveal cross head screw - remove. Also remove screw in red kerb light.

The window lift motor needs removing, but first use plenty of tape to hold the window to the top of the door frame to prevent the glass falling down.

Undo the four nuts that hold the lift motor (no need to unbolt the bottom channel runner).

Undo the connectors, and ease down and out the motor.

Remove the four Torx-headed bolts holding the window frame, and remove a fifth inside the door at the bottom of the front frame. (Don't worry - the frame will not drop down)

Force the frame up so that the window is clear of the weather seal (a bit of a struggle). Untape the glass, and remove. Remove frame. Remove the handle - first undo the cable/ rod connections. Unplug the handles electric's (cut cable ties). Remove 2 10mm bolts holding handle to door frame. Remove handle.

To refit - reverse procedure.

you may need to adjust the new handle

To adjust the door handles, you take off the door interior panel.

There's a little gray rectangle in the interior door handle. Push up and it will pop out revealing a screw. There's also a screw behind the puddle lamp (the little red lamp on the door interior, near the rear). It's sort of scary, but take a large flat head screwdriver, hold it horizontally, insert it in the crevice between the puddle lamp and the door and pry it off (be sure to hold your tongue in just the right position or you'll break the plastic).

After all the screws are out, just pull the door off gently from the edges, there are plastic 'clips' that hold the door on - not to worry, you'll see.

Inside the door you can see the door handle assembly. There is also a turnbuckle which can adjust the length of the arm that connects the door handle and the latch. The bad news is, you have to take the outside handle off to adjust this turnbuckle. It's more time consuming than it is difficult.

Anyway, there are four screws on the bracket that hold the outside handle on.

I found that a pair of simple pliers was the best method for loosening them.

BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO DROP THEM INTO THE DOOR ONCE THEY ARE LOOSENED!

Adjusting the turnbuckles is very important and they need to be adjusted to completely eliminate all free play from the external handles when the doors are closed but unlocked.

The standard Jaguar tool kit includes the right open jaw spanners to do the job. Other very small 8 & 7 mm open jaw spanners would also be OK. The front doors are no problem at all; the rears are difficult but possible.

The job can be made a little easier by buying a small 8 mm open jaw and heating and bending the shank about 30 degrees, as near as possible to the jaws and in the flat plane.

1988 jaguar and cannot open doors from outside


need to remove the interior door panels and check all the linkages. One of them is a brittle plastic linkage that is famous for breaking, and bits get caught up in the travel path of the door handle. I had taht issue, and rebult all mine with aftermarket plastic linkages, and the metal parts I pulled from junkyard cars. No way to fix it without removing the interior door panels, but that is thankfully a pretty easy job.

Need to replace the driver's door interior door opening assembly


Hi there.

The procedure is roughly the same for all mk3 x types.
You need to remove all the screws on the armrest and on the ashtray, then undo all the plastic clips using screwdrivers on the panel.

You find detailed instructions on links below, I quote:

" remove two screws at the bottom of the armrest.
pull out ash tray.
remove screw in the middle of the ash tray holder.
pull up on armrest, it should pop up, then pull it out
start at bottom right of door and start popping out the plastic clips (all the way around the door)
(remove speaker wires)
push up door panel - done"
