Door won't open from inside

My door was taken apart to fix the window, but the socket that holds the rod to the door handle in place snapped. The piece on the door snapped, not the clip that is on the rod. Any ideas on how to fix it or what part I should get?

Most part like this are dealer items, if you go by the dealer they can pull up a picture of all the parts and you can show them what you need. They will either have it in stock or order for you,

How do you remove passenger sliding door handle on oldsmobile silhouitte


The process of removing car door panels is essentially the same for each make of car. You may need to remove these panels when your fixing locks or power windows, replacing window cranks, installing speakers or replacing the side mirrors. Learning how to remove the panels yourself can save money on simple car repairs.

Difficulty: Moderately EasyInstructionsThings You'll Need
  • Set of screwdrivers
  • L pick
  • Small flashlight
  • Ratchet and socket
    • 1

      Check out how the door panels are attached to the car. Most panels use screws and bolts but others have snap-in fittings. Gather all the tools you need for removing the door panels. If the panel is attached with screws and bolts, you need a screwdriver or ratchet and socket. Car door panels with snap-in fittings are easily removed with a flathead screwdriver.

    • 2

      Locate where the screws and bolts are before starting. These are usually found in the arm rest area, along the bottom or sometimes near the door lights.

    • 3

      Roll down the car door window. Begin removing all screws and bolts that hold the door panel onto the car. If your car has snap-in fittings, pry gently on the bottom corner of the door panel until the fittings pop out.

    • 4

      Remove the power window control panel if your car has power windows. The control panel should pry out easily, and then you unplug the wiring harness from the back and place it to the side.

    • 5

      Use an L pick and flashlight when locating a manual window crank. Look behind the window crank and slide the pick under the edge of the metal clip that holds the crank in place. Remove the clip and pull the crank off.

    • 6

      Remove the door handle by unscrewing the small screw located in the center. Gently pull the door handle out until you see the back of the handle and unclip the rod from the door handle. This should remove the handle unless the handle and door lock are attached, then you just unclip the rod from the lock and remove them both together.

    • 7

      Unscrew the cap off rear upper corner door panel locks. These don't have a rod attaching them to the handle and unscrew separately from the door handle.

    • 8

      Pop the door panel off after you've removed everything. Gently pry on the bottom edge of the door panel until it releases. Pull out and up to completely remove the door panel.

How do I fix the door/lock of my 1991 Acura Integra? I can only open the driver side door from the outside


There are only 2 places that you have the problem on the inside door handle. one is at the handle,and the little plastic holder that holds the rod to the handle broke, or the plastic clip the the door lock mechanism broke. the first can be removed without taking the door apart. the inside door handle has a screw holding it in place. you can remove the handle and see if its broken. the second requires you to remove the door panel, to replace the clip that hold the rod to the lock. I door handle in the car is a dealer item only(sorry to tell you that), the clip for the lock, you can get at the auto parts store. hope this helps

RANGE ROVER 2004 L322 DRIVER DOOR WONT OPEN FROM OUTSIDE BUT OPEN FROM INSIDE.


Hi, take the inner door panel off, look around should be a rod that goes from the outside handle to the door latch mechanism, its either broken or unhooked.
This is how i solved a similar problem. When I removed the door panel and looked inside I was able to see the small rod that attaches to the outside handle was not connected. I tried to snap it back in but it wouldn't stay so I pulled the rod over where I could see that the small plastic part on the end of the rod that holds it in place had one side snapped off. Should be easy to fix once I locate the part. Just did this today and haven't looked for the part yet.

How to fix a door handle on a 1986 pontiac grand prix


Remove the inside door trim from the door
remove the weather protection from the inner door
panel
now look up inside the door and you should see a
small rod which is held onto the door handle with a
plastic fastener, pry the plastic fastener from the rod, it
just clips onto the rod so you only have to pry it from
the end of the clip to release it
slide the rod from the door handle, also remove any
other rods or cable that go to the handle
Use a thin extension arm with a socket to suit the nuts
or bolts that hold the handle in place, there should be a
few small holes directly behind the handle on the inner
panel
slide the socket extension arm with socket attached
through the holes and remove the nut or bolt holding
the handle in place
The instructions I am giving you may not be exact but it
should not be too much different if it is different at all.

Inside handle will not open door. Can not figure out how to get latch out of door to look at problem. Pulled door panel, moved window rail, 3 screws from latch, and cable mount attached to latch. How do...


There are plastic clips that hold the rods in place - one for the rod that goes to the exterior handle and another that goes to the exterior lock. You need to snap the plastic clips around so they release and then the rods will pull right out.

Front driver door won't open from the inside only


The linkage is probably broken or snapped out of place from inside the door panel.
You'll feel that the handle is much easier to move than the other doors.

If you are confident and able, take the door apart removing the screws and snap pieces and look for the missing linkage. It's usually a snap piece that holds a rod in place on the back of the handle. They break all the time, or dry rot, or jarr out of place. They're easily available at your local auto parts place or even dealership for just a few bucks!

Good luck!

1997 buick park ave 4 door right front door handle won,t work from the outside


Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.

The manual window handle on my 2003 Escort ZX2 snapped?


You will have to replace your "window regulator". Normal 0

Locate and remove the screws that hold yourinterior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap onclips). Remove the interior door handles. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar topull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips toprevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled,pull the panel upward to remove it from the door. Once you have access to the inside of the door, you will be able to see the bolts that retain the window regulator, remove them, and replace the regulator.
