Hyundai Sonata driver door won't latch shut

Door was repeatedly slammed shut and now it won't latch at all or only rarely. The latch feels loose-unlike other doors. Can I replace it on my own?

SOURCE: Driver's side door not latching / closing

pull the outside handle and unlatch the latching assembly by hand by insertins a screwdriver where the striker would normally be if the door were closed - and pry out.

You can adjust the striker by loosening the bolts, and moving it in toward the cabin.

If the door itself is droopy, adjustments are made by the hinge by loosening the bolts and lifting up or down.

Multiple attempts will be necessary to get it just right.

Dont get frustrated if it doesnt fit properly in the 1st or second attempt.
Good Luck!!

SOURCE: Door latch frozen open

My 2000 Sable does it evey winter - all 4 doors. I have found spraying WD 40 into the latch on the door works quickly to allow you to close the door.

SOURCE: front passenger door power window came down after door slam.

Thier is a Metal panel behind the door panel.
Both need to be removed

Yes. If your window has fallen down and will not roll up.
99% Chance you car is suffering the Infamous VW plastic clip.

The door panel comes off With a T-10 torx or a Hex (Allen) wrench
that will fit and A large Philips Screw Driver..

Remove the Plastic cover on the inside Door handle.
And the Screw or Screw along the Bottom of the door panel.
Then remove the screws that hold the handle the the door.
They are located behind the Plastic plate you removed with a tiny screw driver earlier... Be careful not the mark up the cover whaytprying it up. It is best to pry from underneath. Where marks if made can not be seen

After the screws are out 4 I believe. The Use of a CLip tool ir best.
For getting behind the panel to pop it off. A screw driver will work.

After all the clips are released. Pull the light at the bottom of the panel down and out. Disconnect it ur push it back thought the hole it came from..

Now you need a 10mm socket, or wrench to remove the 12 bolts that hold the metal plate to the Door. Remove all the 10mm bolts, If the widow has not already fallen in the door. It should be released. By removing the Black 2" plugs. THe loosen the bolts that clamp the window the the arms. DO NOT LOOSEN THEM ALL the way, .
Disconect the all the wiring.. THe Door lock cable,can be a pain.
I think it pulls down,.
Next remove the Metal plate. that is the regulator.

Turn Key and Loses Power


Hello,

When a vehicle goes completely dead if a large drain is placed on the electrical system, such as starting it, the problem usually lies either at the battery connections or where the cables connect to the vehicle. Slamming the door repeatedly is probably just jarring the loose connection back and forth. Start with this, usually the fix to a big problem is smaller than you think.

The driver side door on my 2002 chevy blazer wont close.how do i fix it?


Door pins are a common failure on that series of Blazer/S10's. Also, another point of contention that the door faces is a sticky latch. Basically, the door latch re-latches itself and when you shut the door into the catch, it slams into it and bounces off. An easy fix is a 3 part cocktail of brake parts cleaner. Open and shut the latch with a screw driver acting as the catch and your interior door handle a few times. P'Blaster, open and shut the door a few times with the screwdriver acting as the catch. Finally, a good shot of white lithium grease. Open and shut the door with a screwdriver as the catch several times. Once you feel it is un-stuck, actually close and open the door several times. If you notice the door rising every time it catches, you MUST replace the door pins (cheap fix). If the door still has issues, replace the door latch (and since you're in there, do some PM and replace the actuator as well).

Doors will not open


Both doors with both inside and outside handles? Are the handles broke. You will have to remove the door panels with the doors shut to get to the latch to open the doors. This is kind of tough with the seat in the way but you can do it.
