What part do I need? It opens from the inside. The handle is not snapped.


Are you saying the inside door handle isnt snapped,but the door wont open by pulling on the inside door handle or is it the outside door handle thats not working??Both the inside and outside door handle has a spring and other components on the backside of the handle which cant really be seen unless you remove the whole door handle assembly.One of these components are most likely broken or the rod that attaches between each handle and the locking mechanism(part that locks into the door striker to keep the door closed and releases it too)might have come loose from the back of the handle.The outside handle is usually mounted to the door by pop rivets or bolts/nuts.The inside handle is usually mounted with screws,but it really depends on what kind of car youre driving.Youll probably have to remove the handle to inspect it for damage.Open the door and watch the locking mechanism for movement while youre pulling on the door handle.If it doesnt move when you pull on the handle,the handle is definitely broke or the rod has come loose from the back of the handle.

Either the linkage connected to the handle has come off, or the piece on the handle inside has broken. You will need to remove the panel from the door and repair or replace the handle.

Door handle outside passenger wont open door . but it does open from the inside.


The outside door handle may be broken or may have become disconnected from the rod that allows the door to open. Sometimes the ther is a plastic clip that connects the rod to the door handle and could be broken any parts store will have replacement clips. Whatever the problem is, the door panel will have to be removed to be able to inspect the condition of the door handle and parts attaching to it.

Drivers side door won't open from inside and its not the handle-already replaced that. also outside handle is floppy and sometimes the lock doesn't want to unlock with key


The latch assembly needs replacement as well as the springs on the outside handle. You can try to lube the latch with alot of WD-40 and see if it helps. If it doesn't then the latch will need replacement

Ford explorere rear door will not open


check the door handle in side door panel there is a rod that goes into the door handle that might have fallen out of it or more likely broken the door handles at a junk yard are about 5 dollars if you take off make sure it function that none of the teeth of the handle are broken and and make sure you have the right or left door handle it will be marked on inside of interior door handle . this handle slides forward towards the front of vehicle for removal then turn to remove rod from handle.

The front driver side door's outside handle on my 1996 Ford Explorer became very loose. It still works but I wanted to know how to take off the door panel to look inside to see how I can fix it. Thanks


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to everything. Either the bolts holding the outer handle on has broken or fallen out, or the handle anchor (plastic) has broken
