Question about 2000 Suzuki Esteem
I went to get into my car the other morning and the door handle on the driver side didn't work. I lifted the handle and it felt like it wasn't connected to anything. I didn't hear or feel anything break. It just didn't work.
I don't know how to remove the inside panel to try and fix the problem. I am down to two functioning doors (from the out side) both on the passenger side!
Can you open the door with the inside handle? If you can, the problem is probably a broken plastic fitting inside between the outside handle and the door latch. There are door panel removal tools available at your local parts store that look like short handled wide bladed pry bars. You could get by with a good stiff putty knife if needed. Take off the arm rest, window crank, and speaker grill if you have aftermarket speakers. Slide the door panel removal tool under the edge of the door panel and CAREFULLY pop the clips loose from the door frame. You could always leave the window open and do the "Dukes of Hazard" thing, but then you would have to change the paint scheme.
