I had to replace both of the front stops on my 00 Rodeo. It is a common issue so by replacing them it will take care of the problem.

It depends on the actual problem. A body shop may be able to use a tool to go down thru the window sill to unlock the latch. If the latch is damaged, you may have to cut into the door to remove it.

My car door does not close,door lock is jamb

Check the latch assembly where the door closes. If the latch claw is closed it won't latch. Make sure the door is unlocked. Insert a screwdriver into the middle of the claw (circular opening where the striker latches). Open the door handle from inside or outside and pull sideways on the latch it should pop open. If it doesn't then the lock mechanism is in the lock position. Remove door panel follow lock rod to the latch and manually try to move the lever to the unlock position. If all fails you probably will need a new latch assembly.

Last night we started the car to clean off snow. Closed the doors. Cleaned the car. Got in and the doors would not close. It appears that the mechanism on the door that grabs and latches the door...

If the latch is in the closed position, simply use a screwdriver to pry as if the door was being opened at the same time as you pull on the handle to open it. This will return the latching part to its proper position and you can then close the door. If the latch is already open and won't close when you shut the door, the quickest way to get it closed is to heat the latch with a blowtorch. Don't get close enough to the door that you scorch and burn the paint but heat the area arond the latch for about 30 seconds or so and the door should latch. You could also do this with a hair dryer or heat gun but it will take longer. Open and close it a few times quickly and it should work properly for a while. To keep it from happening again, once you have it working freely then spray into the latch with some WD-40 or RustCheck. Don't be shy with the spray and get it right into the latch through the door. If it keeps being a problem then before you spray it with a lubricant use a small can of lock de-icer once you have the door working. After that put the lubricant in. Hope this helps.

1989 chevy cavalier - somehow safety door lock engaged and now I can't close the driver door. How do I unlock it?

  1. This is what probably occured
  2. While the door was open the latch on the door was closed
  3. If the spring inside the latch is broken, Working the inner or outer door release handles will not open the latch.
  4. place a screwdriver in the opening of the latch where the door striker would be if the door was closed.
  5. apply pressure to the latch paw while operating door release.
  6. latch should open.
  7. replacement of the latch will keep this from happening again

The door in a Hyundai Accent 2000 doesn't close (the lock doesn't click to keep the door closed). What can be done to fix it?

try spraying it w/ wd-40 or graphite, work the lock back and forth w/ your finger or a screwdriver. it also could be that its in the locked position now, w/ door open pull handle and see if latch moves/ opens. if it does close door. if this doesnt work go to local junk yard and pick latch up for 50.00 bucks. hope this helps
