My driver side door wont open from inside or outside

it appears you have a broken latch
the bad news is when your latch breaks like this you will end up destroying the interior door skin in order to get the door open

the good news is that almost any good garage can make the repair quickly

Someone tried breaking into our ford escort xr3i cabriolet and the drivers door lock has been broken. It opens from the inside, but we cannot unlock the car from the drivers door, nor open i he drivers...

remove door trim first,then with window up look on back of door lock and you will see u shaped piece of sprung steel that on the back of lock holding it too door skin ,big screwdriver and slide this backwards and door lock is loose .Unclip the plastic bits that sort of clip to the bars that operate the lock and open door .door lock will now drop out.Lock only type,if you have combined lock and handle then normally their are two 10mm headed bolts on inside of door same sort of procedure with the plastic clips but unbolt the handle .1992 doesnt have a factory immobiliser so best advice is big round steering lock over wheel,or a padlock and chain around seat support then on steering wheel .This will put most kids off but being an older car without the immobiliser its a prime target for a get you home car by a couple of drunks .Another trick is a push button start mounted under dash or a coil cut off switch.A friend of mine used to take the rotor arm out,all very well but when its pouring with rain and electrics got wet ,but thats another story.

Drivers side door won't open

get the bodgy mechanic back ,does it open from passenger side ??if it does then its only a simple repair to fix as the little bar on the back of the door lock has fallen out ,if plastic clip is broke then use a bit of fine wire to lassoo it all together ,it will last for years like this

Ford Escort 1998 central locking

Are you talking about the key cylinder or the electric lock button? If you are talking about the key,you need to remove the door panel and watch the lock rod move up and down. There is a plastic clip that pops open or breaks from age. If you are talking about the electric lock, will the passenger door lock move when you press the lock button on the drivers door? Does the passenger door make a grunt noise when trying to lock/unlock?

N Reg Ford Escort Cabriolet, locking mechanism

By 'Black bar' do you mean the window guide? If so, this is usually held in place at the bottom by a bolt or screw &, once removed, the guide should pull out downwards. The window should be closed. Your latch might have a black, anti-theft cover on the inside of the door which will also need to be removed.
