SOURCE: DOOR WON'T OPEN FROM INSIDE OF NISSAN ALTIMA 2002 ON DRIVER'S SIDE

There is a cable that attaches to the inside door latch release handle. The plastic that retains this cable is most likely broken. I have seen this before. If the retainer is not holding the cable sheath correctly, the entire cable moves when the handle is pulled and does not release the door latch.

Remove the door panel and inspect this cable. You will see 2 cables (one is for the door lock). If the plastic is broken, you will need a new interior handle assembly.

Hope this is helpful!!

SOURCE: 2002 Nissan Altima Exterior Door Handle

I seriously doubt that supergluing or even epoxying a handle back will hold at all, or hold for more then few days.
I would only suggest doing the replacement yourself if you familiar with this type of work, or has the aptitude to figure out how to do it, and have the right tools because it is NOT trivial and a number of things can be done wrong, broken or scratched.
The handle itself cannot be replaced. The outside door handle assembly (which includes the handle, the bezel with all associated springs, plastic and metal hardware) has to be replaced. Besides junkyards, which is a long shot for number of reasons, the only place where the handle assembly can be bought is the dealer. And these handle assemblies are not cheap ether. The driver side handle on my 2002 Altima broke first. I paid $60.23+tax, and they had to order it. BEFORE anyone goes to the dealer I suggest to call first, and ask them if they have it in stock. Since door handles are sold painted they will ask you for your car's VIN number so that they match the paint color.
After you pick it up, the replacement will take about an hour (if you know what you doing). The inside door panel has to be removed, it is held in place by the inside door handle and the panel is attached by a number of clips, the handle assembly is attached to the door by three bolts, to remove which you will need a socket with extension. You will also need a good flashlight so you see what you are doing.
If you are familiar how to do this type of work and plan to keep the car for a while I strongly suggest buying a factory service manual on a CD (I bought mine on eBay for under $10). It is worth its price 1000s of times over, and makes almost ALL repair work SOOO much easier.751424a.jpg73e3811.jpgd240851.jpg

To manuelly open 2003 Maxima gas filler door


I'm having this problem with my 2003 nissan maxima. I keep the driver side door open and keep my hand at the edge where the fuel door hinge is, and reache the button with a screwdriver or pen, and as it press the button, I push on the fuel door panel and it comes out. I'm going to replace the fuel door sooner or later. It all looks kinda dumb at the gas station.

My altima 05 gas fuel door cover doesnt want to


Hello and thank you for using FixYa

The most common thing is that the fuel door is bent. This normally happens from opening the door to far or slamming it. You can try to manually bend it around to try to straighten it. If that does not work, then the gas door will need to be replaced and painted to match you car.

Thanks Jay!

Hello , you are probably not doing anything wrong. Some garage door openers will not accept some codes. My Toyota Tundra 2005 worked on my garage door , but my 2004 F250 would not. Quinn , Arizona

GAS TANK LEVER 2001 NISSAN ALTIMA


If you can't glue the handle back on, e.g. with urethane glue (gorilla glue, Elmers Nano, etc.; use as directed, cleaning lever and plastic cover with soap and water just before gluing) then you can just buy a part like Nissan 84640-9E000 (1998 Altima exact replacement; Nissan call it a Handle- Trunk & Gas Door Release.)

That will work fine as long as the gas filler door mechanism isn't messed up; go check for obstructions once you open the door, presumably by using a small locking pliers over a cloth or some rubber on the lever (or the cable wire.)

The trick is, you get to replace it with the door open; use a blade screwdriver to pry the running-board trim up, unscrew the bolt on the trim to the left and pry that off, undo some expander bolts holding the carpet across the running-board area, and wrangle the carpet away from the lever you want to replace.  Some 10mm wrench work gets the lever loose, and you tilt the loosened stuff forwards to be able to remove the cable.  Regrease the bolts and cable run as well as you can.  Thread the new handle through the carpet before you bolt it in; it's harder to set up and bolt, but you don't have to cut the carpet or remove the seat!
