Normally it will be the small retainer that holds the inside of the door handle to the part that hooks to the latch assembly. Or it is possible that the door handle part is broken, but not likely. You will have to have the window raised, and remove the door panel and look inside the door panel where the handle attaches to see what the problem is. May help to have a flashlight. These are sometimes difficult to fix as there is not much room to work & the parts have to be attached for the exterior handle to work. Rick

Door latch stuck


Bend down on one knee and use one hand to hold the exterior door handle in the open position while using a screw driver to disengage the door latch by inserting the screw driver's tip into the anchor hole and push the screw driver outward towards the car.

I went to open the driver side door and the exterior portion of the handle came loose.. I worked it back in and it seems to work, I'm opening the passenger side door to get to the driver side inside handle...


the door handle is either broke or a part of it has slipped loose, either way, you'll have to remove the inner door panel to get to it, this is not difficult, a few screws and the panel is retained by push in type plugs that can be pryed loose. the entire door latch assy is held in by screws and is serviced by replacement, the difficulty come with very tight area to work in, and is irritating and time consuming, if you are not good with tools i'd suggest a good mechanic or body shop. always get a quote!!

Driver side exterior door handle pulls the locking mech. down when the handle is lifted. can open if 1)time lifting the handle with pressing the fob button just right, or 2) someone holds down the unlock...


Take the door panel off the inside of the door. (Should involve screws at the bottom, plus bolts through the interior handle. Then pull out at the bottom, and lift upward Google for expedition door panel removal for more specifics if needed).

It sounds like the exterior handle linkage is binding against the lock button linkage. Actually looking in while pulling the handle would confirm. You then should be able to just bend the rods a bit to move them apart.
