Question about Cars & Trucks
The outside handle (inside handle too) pulls a rod which opens the door. In your case, the plastic attachment to the rod broke which is a common problem with older Hyundai's and the only way to restore function is to replace the handle. A dealer will charge you about $250 to replace the handle. Alternatively, if you are handy, with no special tools you can do yourself and you can buy a replacement handle on eBay for less than $10. There are several youtube videos that will provide instruction on how to do. The inside door handle is very easy to replace - a $6 eBay part, a screwdriver and about 10 minutes will do it.

Either the interior door handle or the cable inside the door is broken. You'll need to remove the door panel and look to see what is damaged.

I have a 2002 land rover discovery and my passenger front door won't unlock with the interior lock button on the dash or with the key fob. The only way to unlock the door is to pull the handle on the inside of the door. Is the actuator bad?

i have a 2005 hyundai both back doors would not open from the outside . after taking the panel off i found out that the handle is completely plastic and that it had broke in half because off stress . i removed the handle ( which was a pain ) and used quick drying epoxy on the crack . then i put a thin piece if aluminum on each side of the crack and used the same epoxy to hold it on . the next day i put the handles back on ( after letting the epoxy dry ) and it has worked perfect ever since. my next recourse , if it breaks again , is go to ebay . there is a seller if you type in hyundai door handles that sells 2 after market ones for $39.99. they fit 2001 to 2005 . i hope that this helps .

on the 2002 Accent we have, the area is clearly identified w/the "cutout" area and marked SRS Airbag...perhaps look at Hyundai.com at the owners' manual online, or look at used cars/junk yards to compare dash panels to yours...would think it VERY difficult for avg person to perform this task
