Question about 1988 Pontiac Firebird

Door wont open

I bought a 1988 firebird, and the driver side door won't open. i opened it up and found that a piece is missing. i was told that is was a plastic clip that connects the rod from the door handle to the latch, does anyone know what im talking about? and is there somewhere i can get a diagram of the inside of the door?

It is called a rod clip. They are color coded so take what's left of the one you have to your local parts store or G.M. dealership. Hope this helps.

Driver side door won't open


mine did the same thing - my mechanic told me to open it real lightly and it will open - it has worked for me ever since. I just don't pull on the handle hard - just slow.

97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door


Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

Driver Side Door wont open from inside or outside. also passenger side door wont close! Help


On the passenger door,make sure the latch isn't in the closed position(have someone pull on the handle while pulling the latch mechanism with a screwdriver)The drivers side is gonna be interesting.You might be able to get at the door latch mechanism by rolling the window all the way down,and use a coathanger or similar tool to operate the linkage levers that way.

that is correct , head light doors may be opened manually , repair manual states turn on headlights , and rotate headlight door motor KNOB clockwise until a click is heard . you will see door come up as you rotate the knob . you will find the knob under the hood near the headlight assemby
