Question about 1992 Acura Legend
The Driver's Side Door will NOT open, it pretty much remains Locked, and I can't get the Door Open to get the Inner Panel off the Door to trouble shoot. Any ideas on how I would go about getting that door to open so that I can get the panel off?? As it is, You have to crawl over the passenger seat to get in to drive, unless ya "Dukes of Hazzard" it and go through the window, but it is My Mother's Car, I'm just doing the work on it for her. She is a Cancer Patient and really just Can't crawl over the middle console like I could. Any Solutions would be Greatly Appreciated, Thank You for your time & I look forward to hearing back from you Sooner rather than later. Thanks again, Troy B.

THE DOOR CATCH HAS A DOUBLE "C" THAT HOLDS THE DOOR CLOSED. FIRST TAKE A SCREWDRIVER INSIDE THE "C". USING THE HANDLE ON THE INSIDE, PULL THE HANDLE AS IF YOU WERE OPENING THE DOOR AND AT THE SAME TIME, OPEN THE DOUBLE "C" WITH THE SCREWDRIVER. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO KEEP ME POSTED. GOOD LUCK

I had the same problem as this...
When you open or close your door there is lever that sits just below the the door latch that is attached to the frame of your car by a single screw.
It is a black plastic L shaped bit of plastics that slides on its own guide. It has obviously started to malfunction over time.
To double check this:
Turn the car lights on
Open your door
Locate the black L shaped plastic level.
Wriggle it around sliding back and forth - if it starts to work when you are applying pressure onto it it looks like it has broken.
Go to your local wreckers and ask them for a replacement part (it cost me $2.00 AUD to get mine)
To take the part off all you need to do is push the level back as far as it will go and you will see a phillips heads screw holding it in place.
Undo the screw and detach the part (there will be a wire attached to the back of the metal guide)
Unplug the wire and throw the part into the bin.
Attach the wire to the back of the new part and screw the new one into place.
All should be working fine now.
