If the door will not open from either side, the latch may have failed.
You may have to take the door panel off and check the latch, which will be tough with the door closed.

SOURCE: bmw door won't open

THE MECHANISM FOR ATTACHING THE HANDLE TO THE LOCK CAN BREAK WITHOUT WARNING. I HAD TO REPLACE MINE LAST SATURDAY. IT IS A DIY JOB IF YOU HAVE THE TOOLS AND ARE COMPETENT. THE WINDOW WINDER MECHANISM HAS TO BE REMOVED AS WELL AS THE GLASS AS MOST OF THE WORK IN REMOVING AND REFITTING THE HANDLE CAN ONLY BE DONE WITH THESE REMOVED. IT TOOK ME ABOUT THREE HOURS AS THE WINDER MECHANISM WAS RIVETED TO THE DOOR AND THESE HAVE TO BE DRILLED OUT TAKING CARE NOT TO HIT THE GLASS WITH THE DRILL BIT. ALSO, THERE IS A SLIDING CLIP WHICH MUST BE PUSHED ACROSS TO REMOVE THE OUTSIDE HANDLE TRIM BEFORE YOU CAN REMOVE THE HANDLE. I DID IT WITHOUT A SERVICE MANUAL, BUT I RECCOMEND YOU GET ONE BEFORE TRYING THIS YOURSELF AS IT PROVED TRICKY. IF YOU DECIDE TO TRY IT, MAKE SURE TO HAVE POP RIVETS AND A RIVETING GUN AS WELL AS FOUR 4.5 MM FLAT WASHERS ON HAND BEFORE YOU START AS YOU NEED THEM TO REFIT THE WINDOW WINDER MECHANISM. ALSO, TAKE CLEAR DIGITAL PHOTOS AS YOU GO SO YOU WILL KNOW WHERE THINGS CAME FROM AND WHAT THE ASSEMBLED ITEMS SHOULD LOOK LIKE AT EVERY STAGE. IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE BUT DOES REQUIRE CARE. LASTLY, IF YOU GET SOMEONE TO DO IT FOR YOU, MAKE SURE THEY KNOW ABOUT THE SLIDING CLIP PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED BECAUSE IF THEY TRY TO PRISE THE TRIM OFF, THE PAINTWORK WILL BE DAMAGED AND THE TRIM WILL BREAK. OH YEAH, BE PREPARED FOR A LARGE LABOUR BILL RELITAVE TO THE APPARENT SIZE OF THE TASK AS IT WILL TAKE TIME NO MATTER WHO DOES IT. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: I went to open the driver side door and the

the door handle is either broke or a part of it has slipped loose, either way, you'll have to remove the inner door panel to get to it, this is not difficult, a few screws and the panel is retained by push in type plugs that can be pryed loose. the entire door latch assy is held in by screws and is serviced by replacement, the difficulty come with very tight area to work in, and is irritating and time consuming, if you are not good with tools i'd suggest a good mechanic or body shop. always get a quote!!

My 2009 dodge avenger driver side door won't open from inside or outside, any ideas?


The lock linkage inside the door is jammed or broken! You need to pull off the door panel to take a look at it. If you know what to do then, good. If not get a copy of the Haynes repair manual for your 2009 Dodge Avenger at your local auto parts place. It has everything you need to fix the problem. It might even be in the mating lock and catch assemblies where the door meets the pillar!

My daughter called saying that the driver's side door on her 1998 Honda accord won't open. Door locks/unlocks both manually and with interior switch...window operates fine...exterior/interior handles seem...


You didn't mention if the inside release works. Typically there are little rods and levers involved and something comes loose. If you find a rod off, do something, as it will want to pop off again, only sooner. Sometimes you find broken plactic and you need to get a new part.

It is annoying to get into the door if neither inside or outside will release the door.

Some doors are affected by pulling on a lever, near the time unlock button was pushed... If lock, and unlock )with no levers being pulled (by you)) does not release it, surgery is next step.

Need Help Putting A Door Handle On A 1996 Dodge Avenger


Start by disconnecting your negative battery cable. Then you need to locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Once you remove the screws that hold the interior door handles, remove any wire connectors to the handles. The interior door panel itself, is held on by snap in clips, and you will need a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to gat as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are removed from the door, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door. After you gain access to the inside of the door, you will see a area for your new door handle to set in place and operate the door latch. Place your new door handle in place and tighten the nuts that retain it. If has a electronic key code, plug in the electrical connector.

Install everything in reverse.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
