SOURCE: attach the clip to the rod from the outside handle to the latch

You should get a new clip because the old ones don't usually last very well once they are taken off. They're cheap at the dealer. Put the clip in the hole of the latch first, then slide the rod into the clip and fasten it to the rod. It just pushes onto the rod.
When the rod is hanging from the door latch it should line up with only one hole. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: trying to adjust outer door handle rod. how to

Once you remove the door panel, you will see the linkage and rods. The rods are connected with these little "swing away" plastic fasteners. Basically, these fasteners have a hole on one end and a sort of channel which snaps onto the connecting rods. To remove them you just unsnap them from the connecting rods. I'm enclosing 2 pictures of typical awing away connectors. In the pictures, it's the square end which needs to be unsnapped. Hope this helps, if you need any further clarification, just post a comment.

Doors on the 2005 2500 hd chev truck wont unlock or lock


They are very common for the door latch actuator assembly. Usually it starts when one particular door stops locking or unlocking. The lock rod will only partially go up or down, then gradually stop all together. The actuator used to be a separate component, however now it is integrated into the entire latch assembly. It most likely is the problem and will need replacing. If its just an issue that your key fob doesn't work anymore try replacing the battery in the fob. Then hold the lock and unlock buttons for 7 - 10 seconds to re-synchronize the transmitter.

You'll need to grab a hold of the linkage rod going to the door latch/lock. An extendable magnet may be helpful to get a hold of the rod.

  3. Disengage the 2 clips attaching the speaker grille to the door trim panel. (They are at the front of the grille, one near the top, and the other one at the bottom).

Drivers side door lock will not release and allow door to close.


OK First I think you have a typical lock/latch failure situation, you must hold the door release handle open while pying the latch hook to the open(able to recieve door catch rod mounted on the inside door post) once you pull it back the door should work fine if this continues to happen the door latch assembly needs to be replaced(those big philip head retaining screws are installed with a special tool to secure the door latch from coming loose so be aware its not easy to remove)


NEXT IF THIS IS THE PROBLEM WITH YOUR DOOR:

Inside the door is a door lock electrical solenoid.... when these solonoids malfunction they will do exactly what you are describing.... to access this you must remove the door panel and all tah is connected to it.....raise the window all the way up....with a light locate the lock soleniod....very carefully remove the part, be sure you have the replacement handy in order to identify the part.

1998 4x4 ford explore driver side door will not


There are long linkage rods from the inside handle to the latch assembly. There should be an adjustment on these links. Too tight keeps latch from locking, too loose it won't unlatch. Use a screw driver or rod to trip the latch asm so you don't have to keep opening and closing the door. Also if it sticks closed and won't unlatch, the door won't be locked closed on you.
