How do I fix a broken shifter in a 2005 Suzuki Forenza


great question, how to fix.
verbs and all.
ok, a/t or m./t ( auto or stick:?)

the shifter, is a lever.
the shifter connects to a cable

not sure what broke means, the lever fell off car?
or it wont shift. or is stuck , try to say what broken means.
but to fix it depends on which if the 3 parts are bad.
or if its park lock out feature, locking you in park.

what is broken mean. say what or post a photo.

Passanger side door locking problem. when I insert the Key, it can turn forward to lock the door, but can not turn backward to unlock the door. And I tried the second key, does not work either.


Really sounds like one of 2 possible problems.
First, perhaps the door latch itself is broken, and that is unlikely, except that I am unfamiliar with that particular latch on that particular car.
Second, it sounds like, if you were to take the door panel off, you would find the latch is locked because one of the locking levers is holding the door latch locked.
There or 2 or 3 lever like things that affect the latch.
There is a lever from the outside door lock that goes to the door latch.
There is a lever from the inside locking handle that goes to the door latch, and yet may be one more.
If any of these are "stuck" or broken, they will "hold" the door latch in the locked position.
Be blessed.

If you would like to fix this yourself, you will be needing to pull the door panel off that side and finding the problem inside the door, but, before you do, here's what you are looking for:
The door latch is fastened to the door jamb with screws.
There are several wire-like levers that come to the door latch and tell it whether to lock or not, to open or not, etc.
The wire type levers come from the two handles, ( inside and out,) and the locking mechanisms, inside and out.
One of your has broken or come apart.
Maybe a bushing has failed at the end of one of the levers.
Be blessed.

Citroen saxo 1.1 driver door will not open


hi drivers, i am looking into the same fault for my mums Saxo forte. there are three problems as well as the post above about the child lock. (on drivers door, remove the trim panel and cut the poly material away on the end near lock. look in to the right and with the 3 T30 size torx bolts removed, carefully tilt the lock towards you so u can see the white plastic.) the child lock is at the bottom. mums wasn't stuck so i looked further into it and found the handle mechanism to be jammed and broken. this has a linkage rod that needs replacing for a few pounds from Citroen. You will need a 4 mm drill and a rivet gun to change door handle. i fixed this and now door opens and closes and will work with the key. but door wont open from inside using the pull lever. looking closely at the top right of the lock unit check make sure the long link rod is connected at both ends, i have now found that there is a spring or connecting bit that allows the door to open from in car. i am trying to find the right part for this without replacing the lock mechanism at around 70. wen i find this and the door works fully again i will post the fix method.

This can happen If you have used the IGN. key to unlock the drivers door after you locked them from the fob. This can also be caused by a stuck button on the drovers door. Check the drivers door all buttons to see if any are stuck. If you do not have any stuck buttons. Try this, from inside the car, with out the car running, use the button on the drivers door to "lock all doors". Then use the fob to unlock them, then get out and press the lock button on the fob twice real quick. This should cause the drivers door to lock as the others. Hope this helps Fix Ya Up.

My one door lock button is stuck down and others simply don't wor


You may need to remove your door panels (screws are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door) and then peel back the weather film on each door to see what could be causing the issues.. rusted wires, loose connection, broken linkages, seized linkages. I'm not sure what to do with your car since each door seems to be having a different issue, but I would check the locking mechanisms..

Cannot open door from inside on front driverside


29 cent part my fix your problem. There is a nipple on the interior door lock lever that fits into a slot on the door handle lever. Look at passenger side to compare. The nipple is covered with a plastic spacer that may come off. The spacer keeps the lock nipple snug in the handle lever slot; pull the handle lever, it engages the lock lever, opening door. I bought a .29 cent aluminum spacer (#8x1/4 x 1/4) from Orchard hardware. Take needle nose pliers and slip the spacer on, then super glue. Unfortunately if lock lever (where riveted) is badly worn, then it may pivot upward instead of perpendicular to the door, thus defeating new spacer. But you may now be able to open door by pulling handle lever and lock lever at the same time. If you need to replace door handle, others on this site have suggested that you not replace metal frame that door handle is mounted on, but drill out rivets that hold door handle mount.

Front drivers side door


Do you have one of the electronic keys? If so, It could have gotten a signal somewhere accidentally that locked the door. It happened to me, however, it locked all my doors. I drove to a dealership and the repairman took my keys through the window and got down close to the lock and started pushing buttons on the control. He finally got the right "clicks"that he needed and opened the door. He said it happens a lot. he didn't charge me anything. Just One thought!
