open the handle like you are trying to open the door, then get a screwdriver, and flip the latch back to open. It is stuck in the shut position. Hurry before it rains.

SOURCE: need to replace door latch on 2001 cavalier

Hello, I think I know your problem and I can help. The rods are attached with little plastic fasteners that "swing away" to release the rods. I am sending you a picture of a typical fastener, if you look at it you will see a square channel with one side open. The open part is where you unsnap it. It's a tight squeeze but you can reach in and unsnap the connectors to free the latch, then just remove the bolts holding the latch to the door. When you go to put it all back together, I find it's easier to unbolt the outside door handle and push everything up and out the hole to give room to connect the fasteners. Once everything is connected just slip it all down and bolt the latch to the door and bolt the outside handle back. I hope this helps you with your problem, if not feel free to ask anything else that might help, good luck. fc85c18.jpg

SOURCE: drivers side door wont shut

Before you go about changing the latch, make sure that the latch is fully open. This can be done by pulling the latch teeth inward towards the drivers seat with a screwdriver, while releasing the door opener handle at the same time. Often these large heavier doors become out of alignment at the hinge side causing the latch to close prematurely. If you are able to accomplish this task, lubricate the entire latch with white spray lithium grease. Keep in mind that the latch has two settings. The first is to catch the door(for safety) and the second is to secure the door. Thank you, Dana

SOURCE: third door 2002 s10 will not open replaced broken

The handle you replaced is a dual action. It should have two linkage arms. 1 coming down from the top & one coming up from the bottom. Sometimes the little plastic keepers that the rods snap into that hold them on to the handle become worn out. Hopefully replace the lower keeper. They may look ok, but it is a very small tolerance.

Door on a driver side does not work I put a new door handle now it doesn't work?

Can't tell from the vid but you did hook up the rod from the handle to the latch mechanism, correct? There should be 3 different rods hooked to the latch, one for the lock, one for the inside handle and one for the outside handle. make sure the one for the outside is hooked up at both ends. Then disconnect the one going to the handle and try actuating the latch by pushing/pulling the rod. If you can't actuate it that way, the latch may be broken internally and will need to be replaced.

Removed door handle and there is a cable that is attached to the handle that is broken (driver's side) and I'd like to know how to remove the cable inside the door to replace it.

to remove the old cable and to install the new one you will need to remove the latch and then unhook cable from the latch. remove the screws on the outside and then you will need to unhook any linkage connected like outside handle rod going to latch, take note of the location of anything removed from the lacth and how it goes on and where, this can get confusing when putting it back together, good day,

1995 Toyota Camry drivers side door latch unhooked

On the metal rod that runs vertically up to the door handle, there should be a large yellow clip that holds the rod onto the handle. These break with regularity, look at the bottom of the inside of the door shell to see if it indeed has broken & fallen down.
