    Sounds like my door, a rod had fallen/disconnected and now I cannot open the door from the outside. It works fine from the inside however. Do I need to buy a whole new door lock kit or can I just buy the individual parts (what are the names of the parts). What amount of labor time are we talking about so I will know if a mechanic is trying to rip me off. Thanks for any help you can provide.

The passsenger door opens from the inside but not the outside handle. How do I fix this?


You need to remove the door panel on the inside of the door to gain access to the linkage rods. A linkage rod has fallen off connecting it to the door handle to the door latch. This is an easy fix.

My hood release wire is broken on my 92 chevy lumina van and I was wondering if there was some way to get it open


If you can get under the van and using a flash light look up to the bottom side of the hood. You will see a lever hooked into a rectangular loop. take a pair of plyers and pull on the wire to open or take a piece of round metal and have someone puch down on hood and you can push the hook for the hood

94 chevy lumina apv door will not open most of the time


since it is the drivers front door it could be the outside door handle , the rod that goes from the handle to the lock asbly or the lock asbly its self take the door trim panel off and then loos inside the door and latch the door with the door open. open the door with the outside door handle and watch the rod and the lever that the rod is pushing down the lever might not be pushing the lever down far enough to release the lock. If the lock does not open try pushing down on the lever and see if the lock releases if it does ck the outside door handle for cracks along the hinges of the handle I have found that most of the time that it is the outside door handle cracked and the rod is not moving the lever far enough to release the lock.

My passenger doors will not latch on


does the door just bounce back open when you shut it? If so then the latch inside of your door should be in the open position. You may need to take a screw driver and lightly pry it back open so that the U shape or Yoke if you will is pointing towards the inside of the car if you were to slowly swing the door shut. That way the striker (located on the car body inside the door frame) will go into this yoke and it will rotate upward as the door latches. Remember to lift the door handle before prying down on the locking mechanism (yoke latch). If your latch is already in the right position slowly close the door and see where the latch and striker are hitting. If it looks like the latch is to low then your door hinge pins and bushings are worn needing replacement. You can usually get this done for about $60.00 from a local body shop.

94 Lumina APV Van Sliding door latch stuck


It should be a "V' or "U" shaped locking mechanism, that the bolt on the latch slides into. You will have to pull the handle, while taking a screwdriver and sticking it into the slot, and pushing down. The handle will release the lock, the screwdriver is just so you can put some elbow grease in to slide it down.
