SOURCE: Hyundai accent 1997, the driver side door handle broke

taking off the door panel is a lot of work. i can explain it all to you if you still have the same problem. i've replaced all of my door handles for all 4 of my hyundai's doors, so i'm experienced in this department. would you like a step by step walkthrough still?

SOURCE: my x5 bmw driver door willnot open from outside

It sounds like the handle may be broken, or the linkage may be broken or disconnected

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and then you can gain access to the exterior handle

right i had this ***** of a problem 2nd week in jan 2010. a bmw mechanic told to jack car up at front and hook a jumper pack up to live on starter motor terminal and then earth, was quite hard to put croc clip on to starter but did manage it. this was supposed to back charge to battery to get enough power to open car with remote, in theory it should of worked but i gave up after 3 hours-no power. so i got my key put it in drivers door and mechanically turned to open position, then i got a cutlery knife from kitchen and wrapped some insulation tape around tip up 2-3 inches. then i pushed this down glass directly above door handle key end to pry a gap between glass and rubber just enough to slide coat hanger wire in with small hook on end then i manouvered wire hook until i hooked latch arm which i did within 1 minute pulled coathanger wire up and pulled door handle the door opened much to my delight. this was a major sigh of relief after trying for 2 days to get in, and many hours searching the net for a solution which i couldnt find. THIS WORKS 100 percent WITH ABSOLUTELY NO DAMAGE!!!!!!! any questions email me- jimanddiane@live.co.uk

Hi, The drivers side exterior door handle is not working on our BMW X5, the handle appears to be loose and slightly sitting out further than it should be. Can anyone tell me what is the best proceedure to...


stop by your local auto parts store and ask for a trim removal tool. they will hook you up with the right stuff. Start by removing all the screws you see in the door panel, such as those holding the arm rest in place. taking the trim tool, feel around the outer edge of the door panel for the clips that hold it in place. when you find one, put the tool around it and pry outward until the clip comes out of the door. do this until you have the panel free.

Once the panel is off, you will be looking for a loose rod sitting inside the door that will need to be reconnected to the handle.

Good luck.

My bmw x5 door handle will not open even the door is unlocked,i can't get to the other door because they are locked.


How did you get the driver's door unlocked. Your other doors should unlock by hitting your key fob button twice. Sounds like the door handle came disconnected or broken.

Problem opening d/door bmw x5


Hi remove the door card, you may need to reposition the rod, they sometimes bend making it harder to to reach the open position, most likely you will be able to fix this at no cost, just bend the rod back where it should be.
