Can only open the driver's side cardoor by rolling the window dow
I have a 1992 Honda Accord Lx 2-door-5-speed manual transmission. The inside handle (driver's side) is not broken off but something inside just doesn't seem to connect for the door to open from the inside. I am looking for diagrams and instructions as to how I can go about fixing this myself. (Widow with 2 handicapped children still at home so a bona-fide-high-dollar mechanic is out of the question...I did buy the Chilton Manual for my make and model, but the the diagrams where not that specific and when I talked to the auto parts store personnel.. I was told that whatever was wrong with the door was probably ''a dealer's part'' and they didn't carry it)....please any help would be most appreciated.Thank-you for letting me post my question.

Re: Can only open the driver's side cardoor by rolling...
You have plastic clips in there and sounds like one is broken. If you have a pull a part junk yard around, you may be able to find one. Hard to explain what it looks like. You can remove the door panel fairly easily and look to see what is wrong.

check the ATC unit automatic transmission control unit by disconnecting the the on the battery wait a few mins. then re-connect and they to drive the car, should drive o.k. for a while then will go back to the way it was. this would indicate a faulty ATC unit. they run about $250. to $350. you do it yourself in 20 mins. and save up to $1500.
these car had problem with the speed sensor, it mount on the right hand side of the car, on the transmission near the right cv-axle. there is an electrical connector and there are two bolts hold it down.
cause its a honda...first check fuses...next wiring....more than likely motor is bad...but u can check this with a spare battery and hook the leads up to it and see if it rolls down...if it does then it may b a switch
A: To remove the plastic piece with the door lock button and door handle connected to it:
1- Remove the screw in the middle located behind a plastic cover button 2- Push (slide) the whole assembly Forward (toward front of car) Besides the screw, it is held in place by 3 hooks on the backside that hook into holes in the metal door frame 3- Now unhook handle from small metal bar going through door by pushing (toward door) plastic clip (blue?) off of the bar, then the bar will come out of the clip hole, thus releasing the handle. 4- Depress little grey button /bar (purple painted on it)on elec. connector to seperate connector, thus releasing door lock switch
Now the whole assembly (metal handle, door lock switch, and plastic piece) will come off door panel
B: The door is held on by 2-screws, 7-plastic snaps/plugs, and 1-plastic plug.
The screws are located: bottom of hand hold and the other behind the handle, both covered by little covers that have to be pryed off to access the screws.(hint: the screw with the built in spacer goes behind the handle when you are trying to reinstall) The 7-plastic snaps: 3 across bottom and 2 on each side. Not visible, they are mounted to the inside of the panel. The 1-plastic plug is visible at the upper front of the panel and is the same color as the surrounding trim
C: Take off the big plastic triangle piece above the door panel and behind the mirror. Pull/pry off. It has 2 snaps holding it on. one near bottom and one near the front.
D: Light lens prys off from bottom. Unscrew (1/4 turn) the light assembly with bulb still intact from backside of panel
