SOURCE: 1997 Toyota 4Runner; Drivers side door will not

There are 2 metal rods that hook into the handle. They are retained by a plastic clip that is prone to wear out. You must remove the inner door panel and replace these clips reataching the rods. Parts available through Toyota.

SOURCE: the driver's side outside door handle is loose, toyota celica '95

I assume that the entire handle unit is loose in the body work of the door.
The interior door trim will need to be removed to access the inside of the door to fix the loose handle.

Do not attempt his yourself unless you have some experience in this area.
Take the vehicle to the nearest reputable auto body repair shop and they can easily fix it for you. There could be a breakage on the retaining system on the handle or the retainers may just need tightening.

Typically door handles which have not been subject to damage or abuse will not usually loosen like this. It's possible the door was damaged and the panel repaired and repainted at some stage. If so the door handle may have been removed and refitted in a sloppy manner.

Cannot open rear drivers side door from outside or inside. door panel is off, door is closed. child lock is on. tried pulling cable, wont move. tried lifting up the child lock with a thin blade


Sounds like the lock mechanism is stuck on the locked position. Since you didn't specify make and model this is a best guess. Make sure the lock is in the unlock position and try manipulating the rod connected to the outside handle (since child lock is on the inside handle won't work)

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from outside...how too fix???


Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

2012 Toyota highlander (Base Plus model) rear passenger door will not open. I removed the door panel to fix the exterior door handle end cap, put it all back together, shut the door, and now it will not...


rear doors have a child lock in the door that you can set to stop children opening the door from the inside. IT is normally in the rear flat section of the door and is a small lever.. I think that in working on the door this lever was moved to the lock position . You should be able to open the door from the outside if this is the problem

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open


My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

In my 1996 toyota 4 runner my driver side door opens only from the inside. The locks still work and it still opens but not from the outside. How can I fix it?


you have to remove the inside door pannel first remove the arm rest two screws then remove the door latch assembly then remove the crank handle by removing c clip around the wndow knob unless electric, next pop the lower and side screws out of the corners then pop the snaps up from the door remove the lock tab at top pull pannel next gently remove the plastic that covers the door and straighten the rod out on the inside that goes to the outter door handle, if it's not hooked up then you will have to buy a plastic clip from toyota to replace it with.
