Open the window and reach out to open the door with the outside door handle,before closing the door and locking it, remember to put the window back up.

As for the trunk it should have a emergency release trunk handle from the inside.

97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door


Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

this could be a couple of problems 1 the handle portion that connects to the actuation rod is broken or the actuation rod has popped out of the handle. Either way you will need to remove the door panel to identify the problem.

My drivers side door will not open. Cannot remove panel. How do I remove the panel withou opening the door for 1998 Honda Accord


Had the same problem happen to me on a rear door. A mechanic lowered the window, and managed to "fish" the metal rod that goes from the outside handle down to the locking mechanism. Usually, this rod becomes dislodged at the top end, where it meets the outside and inside handle rods, disabling both. If it became dislodged at the bottom, where it meets the locking mechanism, then this procedure will not work. Much of the front door panel can be disassembled with the door closed. And maybe, just maybe, if you take out the window switches sub panel from the door panel, you will be able to look for and reach the rod actuator. This subpanel (black plastic) is held by just two screws at the bottom, hidden with a plastic top, that you have to pry out to reach the screw itself.

Cannot open drivers door from the inside on 2001 dakota can open from the outside. The lock works for the outside handle. I have taken off the inside door cover


Either:
1. The Metal Rod connecting the inside door handle to the door mechanism is most likely disconected either at:
a. The inside door handle
or
b. The connection on the door mechanism.
2. The Door Mechanism is not operating correctly.
You should be able to see the door mechanism and the connections. I sometimes use a poskeyt mrror and flashlight to see the mechanism.
A. Check the connections and try moving the metal bar back and forth attempting to open the door.
B. If this does not work: then attempt spraying WD40 into the door mechanism and re-attempt.
C If this does not work: then remove the mechanism and check the inside door connection mechanics.

The driver side door latch will not work from the inside. i have to reach out the window to open the door from the outside.


Sounds like the linkage that runs from the handle inside the door to the locking mechanism is dislocated.

This requires opening up the door panel and re-attaching. It may have completely broken in which case needs a new linkage which you can find at and local auto parts store.

1992 Ford Explorer Sport. Outside door handle not


Door handle seems loose and not connected? Then the plastic clip broke inside the door. Take off the door panel, 3 screws, and door lock cap and plastic insert around inside door handle. pry around the bottom first, and go up, when you reach the top, pull up, please be carefull to not break any more plastic. you will see a squarish opening midway up the door toward the latch. reach in and pull a rod toward the opening. You see a broken piece of plastic on the tip? if so take it off and get the replacement part for it at an autoparts store, install the new one and your set. I have broke to many of these so i ended up bending the end of the rod and using a nut to hold it in.:]

Driver side door mechanism


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.

1988 jaguar and cannot open doors from outside


need to remove the interior door panels and check all the linkages. One of them is a brittle plastic linkage that is famous for breaking, and bits get caught up in the travel path of the door handle. I had taht issue, and rebult all mine with aftermarket plastic linkages, and the metal parts I pulled from junkyard cars. No way to fix it without removing the interior door panels, but that is thankfully a pretty easy job.

Driver's door lock will not open by key or electronic fob


I was able to determine if you move the inside door handle toward the front of the car, then you could remove the door panel. However, it takes a little force to pot out the plastic clips, but if you work around the outside by appling pressure with a thin tool, such as a putty knife it will pot out.

My problem was a small yellow plastic part that connects the outside and inside door handle rods was broken.

So I plan to replace the part and see if that fixes the provlem. If so I can save over $340 dealer repair costs.
