How to remove the driver's door panel on 91 Accord when still closed

Someone tried to slim-jim my driver's side door, but only succeeded in disconnecting the locking and the latching mechanisms from one another, and the door now cannot open. How do I remove the inside panel while the door is closed so that I may try to fix this?

You will probably need to replace the power door lock actuator.

Here's a link to one similar to yours.

You can probably get a used one from a salvage yard.

Unlock Chevy spark with slim Jim


Most lock out companies use a long metal rod that is inserted through the top of the door and is then used to push the power door lock button or the lock button. If you gently pull on the top of the door and insert a wedge to keep the door ajar slightly, you can use a coat hanger and manoevere it to touch the door lock button

Why will my drivers door not open,even though it locks and unlocks with key fob.


Sounds like the activator rod that goes from the door Handle to the latch is disconnected. You will have to get the door open to repair it and a good mechanic or tow truck driver can use a slim Jim kit to get the latch to release and then you can pull the door panel and find the problem.

Driver side door jammed shut


Not to my knowledge. The mechanism you talk about is the wiring inside the door if it has electric locks. The only way is to remove the top of the door panel to access the door latch mechanism then slide it away from the latch. If that don't work let me know

I need a diagram of the locking mechanism in my 2001 nissan sentra so that i can use a slim jim to unlock the passenger side door.


I don't have a diagram of the door but if you slip the slim Jim in over the top of the outside door handle it should catch on the latch bar. If you are doing this because the door won't open from the interior handle or the outside handle the problem most likely isn't the lock. The way that handle connects to the release it is held in place with a piece of plastic that breaks fairly easy. If that piece breaks the interior door handle won't activate the unlock function when pulled and you will have a heck of a time getting the door opened so you can get inside the panel to do the repair.

Well first remove the door panel then look for a link that joins the lock to the door handle, you will probably find that the clip that holds it on has broken.

Passenger door will not open. Checked the locks all fine. Seems the cable broke at the door latch. How do I get the door open to work on this?


Body shops will attempt to use a "slim jim", but on a door that has had the linkage drop like on yours, knowledge of how the door mechanism looks is invaluable because there will be less places to grab with the slim jim. Subaru or a Japanese auto repair center will have someone that will be able to do this for you if you aren't successful.

The door lock on my 2003 E 320 just goes up and down when I push the remote, it does however set the alarm what is causing the problem?


From what you describe, it sounds like someone tried to slim-jim the door lock and dislocated the metal rod from the lock cylinder mechanism. There are two rods; one to the lock mechanism, and the other to the interior pop-up lock shaft. If the interior lock shaft is going up and down, but the door is not locking and unlocking, the rod to the lock cylinder/mechanism has fallen off (this is very common when someone tries to slim-jim the door for entry). To repair requires the interior door panel to be removed and the rod to be reinserted back into the small L-shaped plastic clip.

Locked keys inside 1996 ford explorer. Help!!


Do you have the external keypad? If not, find someone with a slim jim. Slide it between the glass and door, hook the latch lever inside the door, and pull up. I don't remember if Ford put the steel bar in the door in 1996 to block access to the latch. One warning, you may break the locking mechanism using this method.
