SOURCE: door sticking

I had the same exact problem in my 2006.  When it went into the shop I told them.  They took a look at it and told me that they needed to be lubricated and cleaned out.  I live in a rural area and drive on a lot of dirt roads.  Apparently dirt had gotten into the locking mechanism and gummed it up.  They fixed it for me last May and I haven't had a problem since.  This may or may not be your issue too but I hope it helps.

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Maxima driver side door will open from

You have a problem with the linkage that goes from the inside handle to the door mechanism. You need to take off the door lining and make an inspection. It could be a broken clip, spring, retainer or a little over centre mechanism that has seized up. Should be an easy fix once you can see whats happening with the door liner off.

SOURCE: how much will it cost to fix my outside door

It should only take any shop, auto repair or body shop an hour to replace it. Example, our shop charges $80.00/hour. The part is available at the dealer and on average price is $50.00 or you can get a used one at an auto recycler (wrecking yard) for about $30.00.

2001 focus LR latch wont let door open. no child locks .outside handle limp inside handle sound like latch is being pulled how can i get the door open?


It would seem there is nothing else to do other than remove the door panel with the door closed. Removing the seat is likely to be necessary.
Not always possible to remove the door card without damage.

I need written instructions on how to replace a outside driver side door handle for an 06 ford focus


Close/wind up the window. Remove the inside door panel. Be careful with power window switch and door speaker wiring connectors. Disconnect them before pulling the door panel away. Remove any plastic covers that may be glued to the door. Have a look at the door handle from inside the door. You will have some idea as to how to remove it. Usually door handles are secured by screws from the inside. Locate and remove them. Remove linkages to the door handle then pull handle form outside.

Ford Focus CL 2003, Door open light keeps flashing, indicators either trip out or go double speed when door open light on.


At the door jam,check the condition of the pin switch. The switch may be cover with a boot.
Compare the condition of this pin switch to the working side.
Clean the general area and re-test.

2003 for focus doors wont open outside handle feels loose and wiil not open latch


plastic door handles on this model break easy, buy on ebay or similar cheap places, dealer could be fair also, you need to remove the door handle from inside with 10mm nuts / screws, you need to remove the door panel, google instrucitions, once door panel is off it is simple, make sure you do not disconnect the switch connected to the door lock cylinder otherwise the car will not restart if so equipped, switch turns off factory immobilizer if equipped...make sure you connect the rod to the door handle and make sure you lock the clip on it before you reinstall door panel, test first....

Passenger side door wont open,from the out side


You most likely have a broken exterior handle (they're made of soft metal and sometimes the tab that connects to the rod that opens the door can break), it could also be the rod has simply just fallen off, it's held on by a clip and they can break also. Has someone tried to unlock the door from the outside ?(keys locked in car) when the tool to unlock the door is used it can sometimes dislodge the linkage and cause this problem.

Door wont open from outside ford c max can u replace the cable


On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the 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 manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring. Pull back the weather seal and you can then access the linkage that connects the outer door handle to the latch assembly....

You should be able to take proof of ownership and a picture ID to your local Ford dealer and they should be able to retrieve you key code on line and cut you a blank key(no pats) that would open the door.
