SOURCE: DOOR WON'T OPEN FROM INSIDE OF NISSAN ALTIMA 2002 ON DRIVER'S SIDE

There is a cable that attaches to the inside door latch release handle. The plastic that retains this cable is most likely broken. I have seen this before. If the retainer is not holding the cable sheath correctly, the entire cable moves when the handle is pulled and does not release the door latch.

Remove the door panel and inspect this cable. You will see 2 cables (one is for the door lock). If the plastic is broken, you will need a new interior handle assembly.

Hope this is helpful!!

SOURCE: Door Panel removal

remove all visable screws from panel and arm rest. Arm rest should come off. Use a flat thin tool or piece of metal and slip it between the panel and the metal door frame. Slip it in about 2 inches,. Slide it back or forth til you hit a stop. That should be a plastic pop in.twist metal tool to pull panel away from the door. It should pop away from door frame. Don't overdo it if it doesn't come out. try another spot. once you get one loose, you can tell how to get the others out. Once panel is loose push it upwards to get top lip out of window bottom. If it has power windows,disconnect plug. If it has manual windows, you will have to remove the window crank There is a snap ring behind window crank that has to be removed.push in on panel by window crank and you can see the ring.

SOURCE: driver door panel removal and re-connect door pull

You most likley have a damaged inside door handle. To remove the door panel, you must first remove the handle bezel. The trim piece around the handle. It is held in place by 4 retainer tabs, take a small flat screw driver, insert it between the bezel and handle. Gently pry away from the handle. If you look in the crack around the handle you will see the tabs. When you get that off, remove the switch assembly by prying up on it gently, unplug the wiring. There are 2 screws in the door panel where you pull the door shut, remove those also. Start at the bottom front of the door panel, pull outward firmly, but not violent. The retainers will come out, you will most likley break some, this is common. The inside handle is about $45 from your dealer. If it is the handle it is held in with 1 rivit, drill it out with a 3/16 drill. Replace the handle, reassemble. Good Luck.

SOURCE: 54 Micra door panel removal

You'll need to 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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door. It sounds like the linkage connecting the handle to the latch is not working (broken or slipped off)

2003 nissan 350z. Passenger door electric locks only unlock half way. Problem is I can get door panel off being door is shut and cant open from outside/inside.....What now lol


Remove the front seat can give you access to remove the panel. But if it has screws around the outer perimeter, most likely will have to tear it out. Best to find a replacement first. Look at the drivers door, if it has screws, so does the passenger side. There are screws around the arm rest and door handle to remove, then it pops off. Again the seat has to be out of the way.

Sir my problem is that nissan sunny model 2012 i changed the remote same number batery after all remote is not working not open door and unlock door plz sir tell me nissan sunny remote fob ... i seen


in the owners manual there should be a description of what you have to do when you change the battery in the remote-fob, if it is a Nissan factory feature. If it is a dealer installed feature then you need the instruction set from the manufacturer of the remote-fob.
Usually to re-syncronize the fobs you need both of them together while sitting in the drivers seat and you go thru a sequence of turning the ignition on - off with each key. Find a on-line Nissan Forum -- you will get your answer there.

MY CAR 2003 NISSAN DRIVERS DOOR WONT OPEN FROM THE INSIDE ONLY THE OUTISDE


You have 2 plastic clips in the door, one at the handle, and one at the lock. If one breaks, no door. Easy to fix. You can sometimes get the clip at the auto parts store. Just remove the door panel, and replace the clip, and reattach the bar. 30 minutes tops.

1994 nissan sentra drivers door wont open from inside or out is it possible to pop door latch with screw driver or anything to get door open so i can remove the door panel and get a better look at things


Here's a trick I learned from a local body shop where I live.
Get a sawzall and cut the post that the latch hooks to.

This will open the door for you. Then repair whatever is required in the door, and replace the post on the inside of the body is cheaper than damaging anything else in the door.

Good luck on this repair.
