Doors cannot be opened from outside

I have a 1988 xj6 vaden plas and cannot open the doors from the outside so have to leave the drivers door window down enough to reach inside and open it. the front passenger door cannot be opened from either the inside or outside. what's the best way to approach repairing these problems short of trying to find a dealer?

Well i have been thru this problem myself and the only way your ever get it open and to fix the real issue is to remove back seat top and bottom this will give the door panel clearance enough to remove door panel so you can get in side door to open it make surs you fix the pro lem before shutting door again

Broken handle. You can get another from years 89-94. Just be sure to change out the lock cylinder with the one that is broken.

If the doors will open from the outside, but do not open from the inside - the child safety switches are probably activated. Open the rear doors (from the outside) and slide the small levers next to the doors locks (on the edge of the doors) upwards.

1988 jaguar and cannot open doors from outside


need to remove the interior door panels and check all the linkages. One of them is a brittle plastic linkage that is famous for breaking, and bits get caught up in the travel path of the door handle. I had taht issue, and rebult all mine with aftermarket plastic linkages, and the metal parts I pulled from junkyard cars. No way to fix it without removing the interior door panels, but that is thankfully a pretty easy job.

This is a child safetly feature. There should be a small lever on the inside of the door frame on the door itself. You will have to switch it back in order for the handles to function again.
