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.

SOURCE: Range Rover Passenger Door Will Not Open

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?

Please help

SOURCE: Need to Install A Passenger Airbag in Hyundai Accent 2002

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

2008 Hyundai Accent 2 door hatchback- passenger door is stuck and won't open from either inside or outside. What can I do without paying a lot?


Unfortunately not much. If the door will not open from inside/outside, it will most likely be a lock issue. In most cases, the door will need to be disassembled for access to the interior components. The door is not designed to be disassembled while closed. If put into the wrong hands for disassembly while the door is closed, you most likely will end up with interior panel damage which could cost more to repair/replace than having a pro complete the repair fist hand.

The rear outside door handle was not working but could open it from inside. The child lock was accidentally activated so cannot open the door from both sides now. How can this be fixed?


You might be able to use a coat hanger or stiff rod to go down the window track and pull up on the lock rod. Or have a locksmith do it.
